Blagogate: Obama, Rahm and Blagojevich Oh My … Oh What Tangled Webs We Weave, When We Practice to Deceive


Hope and change you can believe in from Barack Obama … Just more typical politics, Chicago style. The question that needs to be asked is why did Obama lie?

Barack Obama has not even taken the oath of the Office of the Presidency of the United Spider_webStates and he is embroiled in a scandal … Blagogate. As Stratasphere states, The Obama Administration is now damaged goods, Obama lied to America. Did America really think that one could advance in the Chicago political machine and not have it rub off on them? Obama promised us change and has given us more of the same. He promised us change and appointed former Clinton White House staffers. He promised us change and now Obama is parsing words alla Bill Clinton.

I had no contact with the governor’s office. I did not speak to the governor about these issues. That I know for certain.”

As we have stated in the past, were Americans really supposed to believe that neither Obama or Rahm Emanuel were not going to have conversations and interactions with Blago? The very person who would chose the successor of Obama’s Senate seat? Come on Obama, we all did not just fall off a turnip truck. How could Obama not have a vested interest in who would take his seat? Obama would almost be derelict in his duties if he was not engaged in the process as to who would be the next Illinois Senator.

Also, why should anyone be surprised by anything that comes from the corrupt Chicago political machine? So many have stated from the outset as to who Barack Obama associated himself with. During this past Presidential election voters said it did not matter. Really? Anyone have buyers remorse? Barack Obama, a product of said machine stated the following regarding disgraced Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich regarding the alleged Senate seat for sale corruption scheme:

“I was as appalled and disappointed as anyone.”

“I have never spoken to the governor on this subject. I’m confident that no representatives of mine would have any part of any deals related to this seat,” Obama said at a news conference called to announce new appointments to his coming administration. “I think the materials released by the U.S. attorney reflect that fact.”

 As the Gateway Pundit states, Barack Obama has claimed that his advisors are not involved and have clean hands in this scandal. Rut-roh, it appears that that President-elect Obama’s hand picked Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, has spoken several times to Blago regarding an acceptable replacement. Gateway says, “So, it looks like besides the list of acceptable names and several conversations, Barack Obama is correct…”

Earlier today it was reported that Rahm Emanuel spoke several times with Rod Blagojevich about the open senate seat.
Now, it is being reported that Rahmbo was even giving Blagojevich names of acceptable replacements.


Swamp Politics: Rahm Emanuel, Blagojevich staff talked; Emanuel delivered a list of candidates “acceptable” to Obama, source says.

According to the UK Telegraph, Barack Obama aid, Rahm Emanuel, had repeated conversations with the Illinois governor accused of trying to sell a US Senate seat.

Sources close to the investigation said Rahm Emanuel, the new chief of staff, had conversations about the issue with Rod Blagojevich and John Harris, the governor’s chief aide who is also facing corruption charges.

It is claimed that at one point he even gave them a list of acceptable candidates to take over the vacant seat.

Suspicion has grown that Mr Emanuel is the unnamed “Washington based adviser” mentioned in the 76-page prosecutors’ affidavit that Mr Blagojevich ordered his chief of staff to contact.

Mr Obama, who takes office on Jan 20, has vehemently denied any of his staff were involved in deal-making and has promised to reveal any contact between members of his team and the governor’s office.

The sources close to the investigation did not say Mr Emanuel had discussed any deals, but even being on receiving end of corrupt demands could be damaging to him and Mr Obama. The sources told Fox News that it was likely the discussions were recorded.

The President-Elect pledged a new brand of politics during his campaign and could be embroiled in the scandal if it turns out any illegal approaches were not swiftly reported to the police.

      No problem at all, Barry, I believe that
      you were out of the room when critical
      “these issues” were being discussed.

      You’re kidding right? Obama lied? How is this possible? As I have been saying from day one, the man is dirty. He is from Chicago, that in itself should make you question his ethics & morals. Mr. Obama is a liar and a fraud and the liberals don’t even care.

      Hold on America, we are in for a bumpy ride.

      For all the Bush-haters, you haven’t seen anything yet.

      I can’t wait for Blago to start blabbing all the dirty secrets he knows – including stuff on Obama – to cut some kind of a deal. This corruption reaches far beyond him – he grew up in this culture, as Obama did. Nobody can be clean. Sort of like Aruba.

      I caught one caller on Michael Savage the other night saying AG Fitzgerald pulled the plug early on Blago in order to protect -0-bama and his minions.

      This might just be the shot fired over the BigZero’s bow just to put “Him” on notice that he and his Clintonista-minions need to go slow in their corruption-scheming selling of America.

      Or it might be Fitzgerald sensing his days as AG are numbered, and he’s trying to go out with a bang.

      What a country!

      This case literally BEGS for a Special Prosecutor, and if memory serves correctly, there’s one MORE than readily available. He’s THE high profile prosecutor in the Justice-rape of the century: none other than Mike Nifong of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax.

      I hear he’s working the drive-thru at a local NC fast food joint, and could be instantly available for a song, say a cool million or three. He’d have to work out a golden parachute with his present employer, perhaps a bag of fries would do the trick. Not enough? OK, throw in a Happy Meal with a Hannah Montana action figure, and Mike would be “hot-airing” the Windy City in a flash!

      Liefong would be just the guy to clean up that political sewer known as the state of Illinois, starting with Chicago. From there, perhaps a newly created spot on ZeroBama’s cabinet, say Secretary of Messianic 3 Term Presidencies, or maybe just plain secretary. Could be fun!

      I can’t wait for Blago to start blabbing all the dirty secrets he knows – including stuff on Obama – to cut some kind of a deal.

      And, IMHO, that’s why all the noise right now about how Blago is crazy. This is a set up to discredit anything that he might say about the Big O, Emanual or Jessie Jacksons (Jr. & Sr.)

      I love that picture of puppet master Emanual whispering to Obama. Is there something you would like to share with the rest of the class Rahm?
