Obama says he never had any discussions about the Senate seat with Blago. Well first off that is ridiculous given how important that Senate seat is to the Democratic party. Of COURSE he had discussions with Blago. He would have been even stupider than I give him credit for had he NOT had discussions. The question is was he in negotiations with Blago about it. And on that question his lying about having discussions sure makes him look as guilty as hell. You have to be impressed and a bit heartened by the sheer level of political incompetence this clown/president-elect is showing.
So now we find out that his long time buddy and indeed the person who helped plan Blagos political run for office in concert with Obama did indeed have discussions
WFLD-TV: Rahm Emanuel Reportedly Spoke with Blagojevich About Senate Seat
"The source said there were a list of names given to the Governor’s office of candidates that would be acceptable to President-Elect Barack Obama."Breitbart.tv » Report: Rahm Emanuel Had Multiple Conservations With Blagojevich About Senate Seat
Btw I downloaded this clip just in case
you know just it case it goes under the bus with Rahm. Remember earlier this week when another Illinois news outlet scrubbed their site and Google of incriminating evidence. The Lightworker likes everyone to keep in line.
A long time ago when Obama still knew the sort of person that Wright, Ayers and a whole host of others who he no longer knows or persons he has since discovered are not the folks he thought he knew
or whatever confusing set of bullshit reasons this asshole concocted to buffalo the public he used to use Blago as a political ally, and Blagos political
fundraiding fundraising wizard Rezko as a fundraiser and Rahm helped them all. Winning snippet from previous link.
In 2002, Mr. Obama turned up to help Mr. Blagojevich, a staunch ally of Mr. Jones, win the governor’s mansion. Rahm Emanuel, Mr. Obama’s incoming White House chief of staff, told The New Yorker earlier this year that six years ago he and Mr. Obama "participated in a small group that met weekly when Rod was running for governor. We basically laid out the general election, Barack and I and these two [other participants]."
But Obama had NO IDEA that Blago was corrupt
that is NOT the Blago, Rezko, Rahm, Ms. Blago, Wright, Pflegar, Farrakan, Kahladi that he knew. Ok sure whatever.
John Kass of The Chicago Tribune:"Obama is a creature of Chicago Politics. The machine runs Chicago… There seems to be a willful attempt by some outside Chicago to sort of not consider that Obama is a Chicago political guy."
Check. Hey how about other little meetings that Lightworker had? Like this one!
What is most striking about this Pentagon report is that it is from the year 2004, when Mr. Auchi traveled by private aircraft to Midway Airport in Chicago and then to a fete at the Four Season Hotel, where he met with his business partner in Chicago real estate, Mr. Rezko, as well as with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Also present that night, according to a fresh report by James Bone and Dominic Kennedy of the London Times, was State Senator Barack Obama, who had recently won the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat that next fall. Bone and Kennedy report that Mr. Auchi and Mr. Obama shook hands. Mr. Obama’s aide does not now recall the handshake but does agree that Mr. Obama was present in the hotel that evening.
Gosh you know that this meeting was simply a fun group of guys getting together to talk about their children.
