You mean since Senator Obama is part of the same Daley Machine that Governor Blagojevich, Rahm Emanuel, and most of his inner circle belong to, he might be implicated in their illegal and corrupt shenanigans? Interesting take.

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.

I wonder if Rahm paid for Blago’s past Congressional seat when Blago became Governor?

Rahm being grilled by whom?

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

Hopefully, the Gov will not resign and stay on to $crew, er serve his voters. Hopefully, this will last longer in the media, than the Fitzy/Armitage/Powell/Plame/CIA sideshow did.

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.

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.

If Blago can just hold on and make em impeach him.... that is what I hope for.

I know he can do it.

Lying is second nature to Obama.
But he can’t fool all of the people all of the time...
