Barack Obama & Blago Senate Sale Seat Scandal: Change You Can Believe in … In All depends on what “Contact” is
Change You can believe In … A Return to Clintonism
Political scandal and Obama has yet to even take the oath of office. Is any right thinking person really supposed to believe that Barack Obama was not interested in who would succeed him as Illinois Senator? That Obama would not his own hand chosen person to replace him in the Senate? Hardly, to believe otherwise would be nothing more than foolish.
Obama Says He Never Spoke to Governor on Senate Seat, Not a single time. Mr. Blagojevich
It all depends on what the meaning of the word is, is. Change, why does that sound do familiar? Why does the comment that Obama made that “we had no contact” sound so familiar to “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”. However, in Obama’s case he has yet to even take the oath of office and had a cred issue.How often have we heard the statement that the cover up is worse than the crime?
“Governor Blagojevich confers with now President-Elect Barack Obama.”
Wake Up America asks the obvious and most important question that Barack Obama must answer to “We the People” … Why Would Obama Lie About Meeting Governor Rod Blagojevich? Obama can cutely try to laugh this matter away; however, there is something just not right that every time some like this happens, it is never The Obamamessiah’s fault.
As reported by the Gateway Pundit, Change… Blagojevich Held 2 Hour Long Conference Call With Obama Advisors On Selling the Senate Seat …Update: Obama Admits Reps Talked With Hot Rod
For nearly two years Barack Obama made promises of political change in Washington DC. Obama stated he was a different kind of politician and would clean up the mess that was “Inside the Beltway” politics. There was just one problem, Obama came from the Chicago political machine that when it came to fraud, crime and corruption made DC politics down right tame.
Enter Illinois Governor for now Rod Blagojevich and the US Senate seat for sale to the highest bidder scandal. The fact that the Senate seat is the replacement for President -elect Obama is not lost in this discussion. Once again we are presented with another character of little to no moral value who as fate would have it is an associate of what we were lead to believe was the most ethical President to be that the United States has ever seen. I guess in the end it does matter who one associates themselves with like Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko and now Blagojevich. Interestingly enough in Blago corruption case, Rezco talking with prosecutors. Just one happy circle of associates. The question that needs to be asked according to Flopping Aces is, “What Did Obama Know and When Did He Know It?”
However, we are supposed to believe from the Obama folks that an individual like Barack Obama can come from no where, grow and advance in the Chicago corrupt political machine, be surrounded by people of less than ethical or questionable character … yet none of that sticks to the Chosen One. Instead, some hoe Obama is above it all and does not owe anyone for his fast political rise. Obama states he’s confident no representative of his “would have any part of” deals for his soon-to-be vacant Senate seat and he is disappointed in Blago.
Obama promised America Change you could believe in. Not only has Obama basically brought the entire Clinton Administrations back to DC, Obama now decides he will be further Clintonesqe. Obama’s claim that he has had “no contact” with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich with regards to the successor to Obama’s senate seat is as Hot Air states, right out of the play book of Bill Clinton and pure Clintonesque.
That image belies Obama’s statement from Tuesday, following the arrest of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich:
“I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”
Is this anything like parsing the meaning of the word “is”? Obviously, Obama made contact with Blagojevich a week before the statement at the December 2nd NGA conference. Did they discuss the Senate succession? Probably not, but it’s not necessarily out of the question, either.
Barack Obama had better learn precision in the future.
Obama says he had no contact with Governor Blago yet as Ace of Spades says, Obama: Do Not Believe Your Lying Eyes as Obama and Blagojevich are seen together at the National Governors Association meeting last Tuesday.
