Skip to comments.Obama team probe of Obama team finds no Obama team impropriety (Believe it or not the LA Times)
Posted on 12/23/2008 3:44:26 PM PST by Smogger
The Barack Obama presidential transition office today finally released its own report on its own internal investigation of its own contacts with legally challenged Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. And you'll be comforted to know the Obama folks found no impropriety whatsoever by Obama folks.
So go back to wrapping holiday presents or pretending you're working at your desk and checking out Obama's important abs. All is well with the coming World of Change.
Speaking of tidy packages, the five-page report was not released in the morning as things are when public attention is desired.
It was released at 4:30 Eastern time to provide minimal exam time before the network news. But that's probably a coincidence.

And the beat go’s on. This is so completely obvious only the MSM could not figger it out. What a bunch of useless idiots. Hannity was right journalism is dead. This is pure propaganda.
The headline alone is more honest than the rest of the news reports I have seen so far. My hope of hopes is that the Governor’s defense team decides that it is in his interest to start leaking facts to place the attention on somebody more newsworthy. ;^)
Dominant media`s in the tank. Imagine the uproar if Cheney investigated himself over something equally similar and pronounced himself innocent !?
The left-wing media would excoriate him and demand a special counsel to investigate.
So debilitating and demoralizing to think this is just the beginning of how bad it`s gonna get.
You ain't kidding. ABC's report on Obama's report results was triumphant in tone.
Its becoming increasingly comedic.
Santo Trfficante has been ivestigated by Frank Regano and found totally innocent. BREAKING??BREAKING??CNN??MSNBC
Meanwhile, Governor Blago’s team has released a report absolving him of any wrongdoing...
We are now waiting to hear from the Charles Manson team’s report...
Emanuel, the transition team told Huffington Post today, has just a little bit ago -- in fact, we just missed him -- left for a long-planned family vacation in that place that every North Side Chicago family dreams of visiting for the year-end holidays, somewhere in Africa. We're not told the area code. Likely on a safari. With no cell coverage, of course. So he's not around to talk.
Nixon oculd have done four times as well. I’m sure that Halderman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell and Dean all four would have cleared him, with no need for Archibald Cox, Carl Bernstein, or Bob Woodward. I guess the GOP will never catch up with the Dems on handling their own corruption (and I’m proud of that).
I mean the AP report I read dutifully repeated the line “long-planned family vacation.”
Gimme a break.
President-elect Barack Obama's transition office said in a report released Tuesday that its staff had no inappropriate communications with the office of Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who is at the center of a corruption probe.
Anyone know if Fitz’s office has publicly said they asked Obama to hold the release of the report for a few days??
Why is something, a no big deal, a so what, handled as a crime has been committed, is there something there, appears to be.
Why do I still believe this assessment of the situation to be totally improbable?
Because how much credibility does it really imply?
IMO the lib media will not, absolutely not, be able to cover for what goes in this administration unless there is a national emergenct and news sources have to be shut down.
Reminds me of my grandchildren being asked if they poopied in their pants, watching them look briefly, and saying “No!” even though there was a loaf present.
So Obami checked Obami’s drawers, looked at Obami’s mess, and Obami said there was nothing there. Guess I can believe him, can’t I?
Remember the tsunami when Cheney met w/the Oil execs and wouldn’t release the list of names before his nomination?? The obamedia has no limits on hypocrisy.
Pray for W, America and Our Freedom Fighters
Same thing on FOX too...right wing news station my a$$
Captures the thought process of the decadent Left rather well.
I watched with incredulity as Krauthammer proclaimed - it is over, Obama is cleared and now we can move on.
Right. Like these highly political, self-absorbed guys (& gals) don’t gossip about each other INCESSANTLY - and exchange breathless emails & phone calls, when one says to several others, “I want 50K dollars for this f’ing appt.”
OF COURSE THEY DO.
OF COURSE BO AND HIS CRONIES KNEW ABOUT THESE DISCUSSIONS/OFFERS.
Wow...maybe he really is the messiah /s
Mom, we kids investigated and none of us had a party last night while you were out, so we’re not responsible for the trashed house and the empty beer kegs.
” I watched with incredulity as Krauthammer proclaimed - it is over, Obama is cleared and now we can move on. ‘
First time I watch FOX in months and I tune in to see that agitprop.
Barnes, however, was having none of it.
Haven’t finished watching NBC Nightly News, but, so far-they haven’t gone in the tank like FOX.
Which is amazing.
NBC did not absolve BO, Axelrod and the Rahmster like most of Hume’s panel.
“ BO was interviewed by the federal prosecutor, with his lawyer present ,” which conjured up images of Clinton and Ken Starr.
Or Tony Soprano.
NBC also played a clip of BO saying after the election
“ that he would be hands off with Blago and obviously he wasn’t..”
Chuck Todd is up next-he’ll probably try and do a Krauthammer.
I wonder how long it took them to figure out the "BLue Heart Jewel" craze was crap, too.
LOL ... and the beat goes on.
Hell hasn't frozen over, but it sure is cold in here!
Marxists love the "right winger" plants who herd the right winger sheep so much better than the leftists.
A blogger outta control; there’ll be a front page retraction and apology tomorrow morning.
try telling your IRS auditor that you have audited your own taxes and all is fine. LOL
Get this civics lesson, you immigrants, legal or otherwise: we have a tradition in this country that once a crook gets elected to a high office, he becomes untouchable and is, as we say in America, in the money!
Bubba Toon must be green with envy now - this team managed to create a scandal before moving in the White House.
Blogo reports he did nothing wrong.
JJJ reports he did nothing wrong.
I guess Fitz just got it all wrong.
Obama should fire him.
The Bush admin should make a quick review and put out a report that they did absolutely nothing wrong in the last eight years and that no one is guilty of anything.
(Of course we know they DID blow a number of things, including a lot of our hard-earned cash, but still, if Barky can do it, please spare us the dem-sponsored war crime trials.)
Obozo’s probe was only to investigate what they needed to cover up.
Obami thinks and hopes that we are all as stupid as the idiots that voted for him .. he’s counting on that.
Since this latest team BHO story is derived from staff recollections, incongruities will arise when the contents of the taped conversations are revealed.
I think as the Obama administration further develops, we're going to see more of this. Hell hath no fury like a barking moonbat scorned, and as the LeftMedia gets more and more slaps in the face from Obama, they're going to continue to wake up from their leg-humping Obama lapdog stupor which they've been in for the past 2 years and ratchet up the criticism.

Krauthammer is a 300 hitter....he only gets it right one third of the time.
