They won’t ever believe the truth, for the American people wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped in the forehead.

We can use the term “Democrat culture of corruption” if you wish, but the American people aren’t buying it for a minute, not the once pre-committed to Oprah’s Choice.

"So, reporters asked, he does not intend to resign? “Not that I know of, no,” said Sorosky, who added that the governor was “surprised” by the day’s events."

Oh, they NEVER intend to resign. He'll have to be pushed out kicking and screaming.

If I were going to place a bet, here’s what I’d bet on. I’ll bet that the chances are good that 0bama did NOT offer any bribes to the Gov. Why not? Because he thinks he’s been elected Emperor and is now in charge of everything. I think that what is much more likely is that 0bama was pressing for his choice for Senator and that Blag was expecting a payoff that 0bama was refusing.

I think that if 0bama is going to get nailed for something, it will be his pre-election crimes. After being elected, 0bama may have irritated Blag enough with his imperial demeanor that Blag spills the beans on something else from before the election.

Before the election, 0bama was still a mere mortal and subject to the “normal” rules of Chicago politics (bribes, coercion, quid pro quo). Blag must know what was involved in getting 0bama both the Illinois state Senate seat and the US Senate seat. He may also know details about voter/election fraud during the election.

You know, a part of me agrees with you, but another part of me thinks that Americans would finally wake up to the corruption that surrounds O if they could somehow hear the entire truth about him.

“I had no contact with the governor or his office (WHEN - today? or at any time on this matter?) and so I was not aware of what was happening, ” Obama told reporters today in Chicago. “It’s a sad day for Illinois. Beyond that, I don’t think it’s appropriate to comment.” (Why? are you leading the fifth already?)

Sounds like that was written by the Clintons. (My questions inserted into the quote)

That's where you get charged a toll, electronically, just driving down the open road without stopping:
a little microchip card on your visor and the sensors charge you as you drive by.

So, the wholly and absolutely corrupt governor of Illinois tries to sell the US Senate seat Obama just vacated for, among other things, a "cabinet post", and Obama himself wants us to believe he never spoke to the Governor?

In fact, he wants to take back a statement that was made by Axlerod before the case exploded on the public view, which has not been contested until this moment, and now say that back then Axlerod, "mispoke?"

It is obvious that Obama takes the entirety of the US voting public for the fools this disgusting governor took the people of Illinois for.

Obama's lies, tom foolery, and charltain behavior was bought into by so many people to get him elected...how long will those same people continue buying pig in a poke?

“A lot of this is just politics.”

That was my reaction also.

Why do people go into politics if it isn't for the chance to extort money and deal in influence? That's just what government does. Why is anyone surprised? I really don't think this case is anything special. You could nail half the politicians in this country the same way Fitz did here. This guy was just unlucky - he got caught.

Obama is as corrupt as the rest of Chicago gangland.... America is just plain dumb for voting for him.

No one will be held accountable, even now people are starting to put up walls.

Odd the VIDEO has been removed it said due to copyright of Fox news. Hannity has a ton of videos on youtube since when has Fox News been worried about copyright?
