Chicago’s NBC affiliate station has posted previously redacted information that had been missing from a subpoena requesting that Barack Obama testify in the trial of disgraced former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. From the report:

1. Obama may have lied about conversations with convicted fraudster Tony Rezko

Censure, maybe, but he ain’t going down...unless Larry calls him for a date.

You know, what might bring down this “fine gentleman” (wink wink) might not be what you and I think would but something so minor to us.... Hmmm...

1. Obama may have lied about conversations with convicted fraudster Tony Rezko

2. Obama may have overtly recommended Valerie Jarret for his Senate seat

3. A supporter of President Obama may have offered quid pro quo on a Jarrett senate appointment

4. Obama maintained a list of good Senate candidates

5. Rahm Emanuel allegedly floated Cheryl Jackson’s name for the Senate seat

6. Obama had a secret phone call with Blagojevich

When Republicans failed to dig up anything in their Whitewater witch hunt against Bill Clinton that could be used as an excuse to impeach the president, they went after him on his extramarital affairs. In that case, Clinton was smart enough to have avoided being caught in illegal acts. Barack Obama, on the other hand, may not be that clever. When the GOP retakes the House and reclaims more Senate seats, count on the party to use this as its justification for impeaching and removing Obama.

All I hear is crickets chirping from the msm on this trial. You can bet there is a lot of pressure from the administration to suppress anything to do with Obama. Of course they have willing allies in the msm, Federal, state and local governments.

Just like the John Edwards baby story the MSM will do it’s best to keep this under wraps and what is reported will come with the “everyone does it” or some other mantra. Count on it.

If he didn’t lie under oath it’s just another indication of his essential dishonesty, nothing more. That is, unless it can be proven that he somehow broke the law but I’m extremely doubtful that anyone is willing to pursue it.

Clinton was caught committing perjury. Which is an illegal act.

Love to know why he isn’t in prison right now.

That’s simply not going to happen. He’s untouchable in that respect but it will make an effective campaign issue unless we get another candidate like McCain who puts discussion of Obama off limits.

Obama truly thought that his word would be the end of it. That he would just say “I didn’t...” and that was that.

This man’s ego will be his downfall. I just hope I am around to watch it and God forgive my zeal to watch a man suffer humiliation as he has done to so many.

Maybe with a Republican congress next year. Doubtful even then.

Right now, Obama controls the courts, Justice Department, press, and Congress. It won’t go any further than blogs.

That’s why “everything” had to be done with lightening speed.
If we have the right people, we might have a chance.

I never saw a person so protected by so many, for one reason or another.
Even when it’s so clear what he and his clutch are doing.

It’s all about the power to get rid of our freedom, to make us into
another Socialist country dependent on the government.

Like any Socialist country, only a few get to be rich and in charge.
The rest of the lazy dumbazzes think their getting free things so that’s enough to give up their freedom.

NO MORE FREEDOM FOR THEE ONLY FOR ME!

He’s a black communist - he’s immune.

I’ll just be glad if he leaves at the end of his term - hopefully at the end of 4 years.

I hear you but too many people are ticked off for the race card to really work. It has gotten REAL old. Even the MSM are hissed upon and now ignored for promoting the race card to all that criticize Obama.

Not only that, he was guilty of witness tampering in his sexual harassment case (which is how Monica got involved in the first place) which is a felony!

As usual, there are two different sets of laws. Those that apply to us poor (and getting poorer daily) schmucks that work our @sses off just to survive and pay their elitist salaries....and those laws that do not apply to our elitist masters in DC. I think it’s time (more like past time) to radically transform both sets of those laws.
