The spin is that Jagovolbitch was so angry at Obama because they offered him nothing - ovelooking that the anger was probably about being offered something then having it retracted...
IMHO, Rahm was the one who said this ... “The president-elect can get Blagojevich’s wife on paid corporate boards in exchange for naming the president-elect’s pick to the Senate.”
And Obama is the one who told him to say it.
“Is Emmanuel covering for Obama’s stupidity?”
Bank on it. Someone is going to take the fall for this mess, and it won’t be the new ‘Mr. “I Hate America” President’.
That would take a LOT of covering
Or, is there something else they could be hiding?...
This would be a criminal proceeding. If Obama had to testify, I imagine birth records could be subpoenaed to determine if he was eligible to be president.
“who on Earth”
Knowing that Blago was requiring cash for the seat, and not reporting that graft to the FBI, is probably illegal.
I’ll bet the Obamanaughts have a legal obligation to report incipient corruption, which they failed to do.
Some say "yes", that you have to report a serious crime rather than just not participate. I'm not sure what the situation is with a refused bribe. Modern life sure is complicated.
I think it more closely resembles Godfather I, II and III.
...like a one eyed cat watching 5 rat holes
Emanuel was chosen as Obama’s Chief of Staff within a few days of the election and now it comes out that Emanuel was up to his neck in the cesspool even after he was selected. There is NO WAY that Obama can claim that HIS RIGHT HAND MAN was not involved.
Obama is warming up the bus.
He is only doing his New Socialist duty to protect the integrity and infallibility of The One (piss be upon him).
I am believing that Emanuel snitched to the Feds once Blago folks informed him that a bribe/deal would have to be made.
That is why Rahm The Silent is maintaining his low profile and has gotten death threats. Fitzgerald told him he cannot reveal his actions or that he is an informant - yeh, that’s it - an informant.
I guess “snitch” is too harsh for a Democrat - he performed a civic duty by calling Fitzgerald directly to inform him of the transgression. Of course, his contacts within Justice/the FBI had told him that Blago’s telephone conversations were being taped.
No source - just a hunch of mine.
The funny thing is, this Emmanuel story broke last night, all day conservatives have been pinning this thing on Obama/Rahm and all we get from them soo far is silence. Usually they are on top of “correcting” the story, but now its all silence, hmm very fishy.
Get the McDugal suite ready for Rahm.
Just on Fox Rahm told he is NOT a target of the Investigation
I’m afraid that it will take more than 1 person to cover that particular issue.
