Skip to comments.Obama's Huge Blunder: Emmanuel Likely to be Grilled in Blago Scandal
Posted on 12/14/2008 2:39:50 PM PST by nysuperdoodle
The leaking sludge of the Blagojevich investigation is threatening to stain the Obama presidency before it gets off the ground. The reports out of Chicago indicate a tense weekend for the Obammunists. There is rampant speculation about the extent and content of Rahm Emmanuel's six contacts with Blagojevich and, perhaps even more pressingly, a concern that perhaps the media blanket that has been protecting Obama may be showing signs of wear...

fuggetaboutit....it’ll never happen.
Obama can always divert attention away from the Blagojevich scandal with his birth certificate scandal.
I like the “leaking sludge” metaphor. I think Emanuel is already toast, we just don’t know it yet. It all depends on what’s on those tapes, and in documents that he gave Blago. Note Obama carefully stated “I did not speak with...” - no, he put it in writing. Once Emanuel is compromised I see BHO cutting him loose immediately. But it’s like chopping off a limb to stop infection, there’s more where that came from, and he can only cut so far.
Some idiot named Mary Mithcell from a Chicago newspaper was on MTP this morning and told the assembled masses she was surprised by how well the governor had hidden all this corruption from a preying press. My question would be, when it comes to Democrats and especially Democrats connected to OBama what preying press would that be? You only see what you want to see.
For THAT (first expression preferred) I’d have enough Christmas presents for the rest of my life.
I wonder if Rahm paid for Blago’s past Congressional seat when Blago became Governor?
Nah, they're just getting their second wind
The MSM press?............for sure < / s >
The Senate?............... Yeah right
The Congress?.....................When monkeys fly out my butt
Nonetheless, it is increasingly inconceivable that Emmanuel will not be grilled for his series of conversations with the Governor. If they weren't discussing the Senate Club seat, what WERE they discussing?
Very much conceivable unless Rahm is on tape, otherwise not going to happen
I'd bet my last dollar the Obama team know Blago was being investigated and stayed far away as possible and definitely didn't talk or email on electronic devices
Rahm, "I never had sex with, er, talked to the Illinois Governor. Hell, Obama and I don't even know him."
Chicago Team Obama
Hey Zer0, How are you hanging in there with the big boys? How's your smoking and facial tics coming along? Enjoy your ride. The fun is just beginning.
Maybe Rahms in trouble for dealing about the replacement for his Congressional seat, not about the replacement for Os Senate seat:
One alleged scheme outlined in the charges against Blagojevich involves the special election for Emanuels seat. The government affidavit said Blagojevich and others were recorded talking about an unnamed president-elect adviser concerned about the election for Emanuels congressional seat who might help the governor land a new job at a non-profit organization
Ummmmm, he WON the election. Now they have to hold his feet to the fire just a little to show the world they're not totally biased. It's gonna take a lot more than that for the MSM to get any credibility back. Besides, if the MSM is going after Rahm, maybe they're doing it FOR Obama. Maybe Obama wants to dump him and this is the easiest way.
