Top Obama aides subject of Blagojevich Subpoenas
Quad City Times ^ | January 24, 2009 | AP

Posted on 01/25/2009 2:23:38 PM PST by conservativegramma

UPDATE: SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Sweeping federal subpoenas of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's administration include requests for records involving David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, senior advisers to President Barack Obama.

Among 43 subpoenas released by the Blagojevich administration Friday, one from Dec. 8 seeks notes, calendars, correspondence and any other data that relate to Axelrod, Jarrett and 32 other people and organizations.

Let's recap, shall we? In the first week, Obama has not cut taxes -- the only proven way to revive the economy -- despite promising to do so for "95% of working Americans" (which was almost certainly a lie, but let's wait and see); signed an order to close Gitmo, certain to make America less safe; and promoted abortion on a global scale.

Oh, and most of his senior staff have now been served with subpoenas.

I can hardly wait for week two.

I wonder if they will tell him that he doesn't have "standing" to seek these items???

Obama week one;

He did not use a Bible for the second swearing in. [Oaf of Office] He did not allow reporters to take pictures.

“I won. I’m the president.” Arrogantly responding to pubs.

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done”

He began planning to release men whom we know have murdered Americans.

The revelation last week that 60 former inmates have returned to terrorism - and that one is now deputy leader of al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch - was unfortunate timing for the President.

Having announced new ethics rules banning lobbyists serving in his administration, the president was immediately forced to make an exception for his deputy defense secretary William Lynn, who has lobbied for the defense industry giant Raytheon.

He is preparing to sentence [even more] innocent children to death through expanded abortion rights.

He openly grimaced and shook his head when Biden made one of his frequent gaffs.

Plus - all those I forgot...

Obama’s ego is unbelievable. He doesn’t seem to understand that he’s nothing more than a media creation, and that they can easily take him down. This might be a “warning shot across the bow”.

Thank you conservativegramma. I’m sure I’ve missed many as I can’t listen to Rush and others like most of you. [bad hearing developed in my 30’s].

Just imagine the things he’s done behind the scenes that we don’t even know about!! YET

You know its pretty humorous, or sad (depending on how you look at it) that here we are just five days into his term of office and we’re having trouble naming ALL of his screw ups because there have been so many! FIVE DAYS!!!!!!

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

No doubt we will feel like doing plenty of both as time goes on.

His election made us cry, and now we get to watch and exploit every blunder he makes. They did not spare President Bush.

We’ve already seen cracks in his veneer..

Mayor Washington in a bikini? Mayor Washington was the first African American mayor of Chicago. He had many enemies....His death shortly after he was sworn in for his second term was suspicious and prompted a second autopsy....ruled heart attack....Tinfoil hats were never satisfied as the Daley's took over again.

Heard on Fox News this afternoon that Obama is very anxious to get this new stimulus package out and that we’ll see positive results in 3 weeks!! Anyone else hear that?

I thought of a couple. The fake music at the inauguration and the skipping of the Heroes ball for Medal of Honor recipients. He did go to the Neighborhood Ball, however with such upstanding citizens as Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Mary J. Blige, Faith Hill, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Sting, Mariah Carey and Leonardo DiCaprio.

So, not all was lost /s

I find it more than hilarious that Blago (a Democrat!) is throwing hand grenades at everyone in the Democratic party in a desperate effort to keep himself alive politically, or at least out of jail.

I find it funny because the reason this whole situation came about is even though Illinois is owned by Democrats and rampant corruption is tolerated here, Blago went over the line and actually succeeded in embarrassing his fellow Democrats with his extreme arrogance and obvious disregard for the law. So he had to be taken out.

Now Blago is at war with the Democratic Party and they are going all out against each other with every dirty trick in the book that used to be reserved for use on Republicans. They're trying to employ tactics of “Mutually Assured Destruction” to bluff each other out and neither side is being bluffed.

Blago is outnumbered and cannot possibly win, but he just might succeed in taking out whole legions of big name Democrats in his attempt to stay alive. At the very least, he is methodically destroying the Democratic Party here in Illinois.

Blago is the gift that keeps on giving.
