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.

Check out the incredible Blagojevich Timeline: Everything Fits Easily Except Obama’s Monday Denial from The Volokh Conspiracy.

From the Politico, 7 Blago Questions for Obama. Inquiring minds would like to know.

  • 1 – “Did you communicate directly or indirectly with Blagojevich about picking your replacement in the U.S. Senate?”

  • 2 – “Why didn’t you or someone on your team correct your close adviser David Axelrod when he said you had spoken to Blagojevich about picking your replacement?”

  • 3. “When did you learn the investigation involved Blagojevich’s alleged efforts to ‘sell’ your Senate seat, or of the governor’s impending arrest?”

  • 4 – “Did you or anyone close to you contact the FBI or U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald about Blagojevich’s alleged efforts to sell your Senate seat to the highest bidder?”

  • 5 – “Did federal investigators interview you or anyone close to you in the investigation?”

  • 6 – “When did you and Blagojevich last speak and about what?”

  • 7 – “Do you regret supporting Blagojevich?”

      In order to solidify Chicago’s impact as a world class city, there is a connection, although well hidden between the Windy City and Aruba.

      “So I(John Kass) phoned the Excelsior Casino in ARUBA, where Jimmy(DiLeo) takes politicians to gamble, including Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White. I figured Jimmy might be there.”

      Yes, it appears that there is a mob connection on the island of Aruba.

      Please read John’s column of today in the Chicago Tribune. I consider this reporter more than a journalist, he is in fact a contemporary historian of the city’s political figures, both prominent and behind the “curtain”.

      Have a great day. Justice for Natalee. Boycott Aruba.,0,723256.column

      The thing to remember is that as a politician in the same state and party any politician has to interact with people. However, he or she does not have to befriend a person, and limit the interactions to professional boundaries. Obama might have endorsed Blago in the general but in the primary he did endorse his opponent. So, the conclusion is that all the interactions were strictly professional. In a similar analogy, a lots of folks who endorsed Hillary then turned their endorsement to Obama when he won the primary. Even though he was not their first choice, he was the Democratic nominee so they endorsed him. That is politics works. Obama does not need to discuss any interaction once he indicates that he has not have any discussions regarding the vacant seat. Therefore, he was not involved in any wrongdoing – it’s time to move on and look forward! Let’s focus on all other critical problems at hand!
      SM: The basis of all leadership is character, honesty and credibility. Without it, “we the people” have nothing. Read Obama’s lips … he stated neither he nor anyone in his campaign had “ANY INTERACTION” with the gov. NONE, ZERO, NADA, NULL … That is not the truth.

      Personally, it makes no sense for Obama to make such a comment that is so easily proven false. Why did the Chosen One feel the need to lie?

      Why is it that Ill Gov Blago has a 4% approval rating, is being asked to resign or face impeachment?

      By your standard, Blago just needs to say he is going back to do the work if the Illinois people and forget anything happened.

      #2: just moving on and letting any crook run our country is at most a lazy solution. just looking at barry during his little speech on tv, he leaves no evidence that he is sincere in his statements. he almost has a smile on his face and this is a telltale sign of guilt.
      it’s the squeal and squirm effect. barry’s friends squeal and he squirms

      Even though I don’t like Obama, I have to tend to believe him that he has no involvement in this…just a gut feeling I have and a feeling I hate…

      Now, I have no doubt that someone on his staff had some contact. I soundly believe that his COS, Emanuel, the twinkle toes ballet dancer (LOL!), had some contact. Emanuel is even more of scumbag than Obama. His a midget ballet dancing napolean complex SOB.

      “I did not have sex with that woman!”

      “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”

      Familiar Ring?

      See that is the problem. You believe everything this man says. You can’t honestly believe he nor his staff didn’t have any kind of contact with the Governor? I’m not saying he’s involved with the scandal but to say he had no contact is just not true.

      Yes, we have been on his back about everything because he has promised change and has yet to tell us what this change is. He has been less than honest from the beginning. So far looks like the same old same old with him bringing everyone back from the Clinton administration. The liberals have been on Bush’s back for the past 8 years for every little thing so expect the same in return.
