    Obama said in his statement he had no contact with Blagojevich. Unfortunately for the new president, his top aide David Axelrod told Fox News on November 23 that Obama had indeed talked with Blagojevich about the senate seat.

    The chances are very good that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald--"a great legal mind and decent human being," according Chuck Schumer (D-NY)--is far from finished. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party in Illinois may be in for a very rough ride as their leader ponders his future -- or lack of one -- and his associates lawyer-up in anticipation of legal trouble.

    Both Obama and Ax will soon be subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury.

    I bet he wishes he was the Teflon Obama right now.
    Nothing sticks to him no matter how corrupt or what lies he spews.

    As soon as a scam is uncovered or or a corrupt individual is exposed Barry seems to be right in the middle.

    Barry lied saying he didn't talk to the Governor before this happened.

    Like Satch said, his top aid said he spoke to Rod last week and they had several people in mind.
    Then a reporter even reported about it in the tribune.
    But now the top aid said he mispoke about it...hmmmm

    Barry will not be able to live the lie is living as the most scrutinized person in America.
    He simply cannot keep up with his many lies, including where he was born and how he got the money to buy his house and pay for his elite Schooling.

    Perhaps Blagojevich needed some extra money to feed that thing on his head. It looks like it could keep him up all night barking for another slab of meat.

    TOO easy.

    We'll have to see how this shakes out. I am sure the Magic Muslim Messiah has covered his own tracks, and expect Axelrod to be taken to the woodshed for opening the door a crack.

    I would bet my last dollar that Osama bin Urkel IS involved, but in interests of full disclosure, I am willing to think the absolute worst of ObU (aside from child molestation or something disgusting like that). ObU was MIRED up to his nostrils in Chicago Gool Old Boy Politics, and if you think The Plastic Kenyan came through all of it untainted, you need to change your brand of cigarettes.

    Blago and Urkel are political Siamese twins. Let's look into the bidding process that Osama bin Urkel used to get into the Senate, as well...

    And get used to it, jay and holier: I will be calling for investigation after investigation of The Illegitimate One ANY time the slightest hitch comes up, because he is not eligible to serve as President (or, if he IS eligible, his little game of obfuscation demonstrates his emotional immaturity, which may be bad for a presidency but is not a constitutional disqualifier).

    Osama bin Urkel shouldn't even be let inside the White House for a tour because of his Islamofascist sympathies, and this whole thing with Blago and the Syrian Rezko, MIGHT just wake up an "investigative journalist" [sic] or two, but I doubt it.

    Blago is Osama bin Urkel's worst nightmare, because this pigeon is going to sing to Fitz to keep his own rear end non-violated in custody.

    Obama is stinking worse the closer we get to Jan 20. Now he feels it is appropriate to use Hussein with the rest of his name. Why didn't he use it when he ran? Next he will stealthily give amnesty to illegal aliens and then stealthily implement elements of Sharia law piecemeal. If he makes it that far.

    P.S. bammy sure isn't giving whitey many appointments in his cabinet is he?

    Stupid white Americans who voted for this garbage.

    It finally came to me.
    I knew this guy looked like someone familiar but I just couldn't place him.
    He is the identical twin of the guy on Mad Magazine.

    Anyone notice how quickly Barry threw this clown under the bus and distanced himself saying he hasn't spoken to him?
    Barry even lied about this.

    I also find it ironic that Barry said his middle name was off limits during the campaign but is now going to use it in his swearing in.
    I guess he wants to appeal to his Muslim brothers.

    Barry is a phony and a traiter.
    My guess is he will end up being impeached and embarrassing America just like his idol oral Clinton.

    Funny, you don't seem to have a problem when the phoney traiters are from the right, Bush, cheney, rush, rove, etc...
    Rove is the biggest traitor this country has seen yet he's on faux's payroll. And anyone that would listen to rush must be boderline retarded. the guy is a wack job as our his followers.

    I'll wager you have never listened to Rush. He makes a lot of sense and he also backs up what he says. sometimes he does go off the deep end. He's human. My 10 year old granddaughter only wanted one thing for Christmas and she got it: Rush 24/7 and the newsletter. We ae using his transcripts to teach her critical thinking and evaluation of opinion and slant.

    Perhaps you could benefit from following his transcripts back to the original sources. But then you would have to THINK. That's the most important thing you can learn by listening to Rush: you have t think for yourself and verify facts independently. Try it for yourself. I AM getting really tired of her replaying all his shows for the past month though.

    I love that picture. It is poetic.

    Schumer sure loved Fitzgerald when he was prosecuting Scooter Libbey. Let's see Fitz is willing to break eggs in Chicago and maybe get some yolk on the Obamessiah's buddies or the big guy himself.

    Blago is a narcissist and can't function without constant attention. I think there's payback to come. Maybe if the presidential pardon he expects isn't forthcoming, there will be a tell-all book. One with a fat cash advance royalty to cover his legal bills. Who knows, maybe enough left over for a little something under the loquacious Ms. Blago's tree.
