I agree. Obama is playing this really badly, unless there is more to the story.
From what we’ve heard so far, Blago was complaining because he wasn’t getting any firm promise of anything from Obama. Which means Obama is in the clear. So why does he act like he’s guilty?
This is similar to the birth certificate fiasco. It seems to be a personality trait; he insists on acting guilty.
Blame the weed. It often inspires paranoia.
