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.

Oh, and most of his senior staff have now been served with subpoenas.
I can hardly wait for week two.
You forgot getting in Rush’s face and being called a House Negro by Al-Zawahiri... LMAO
... another most ethical in US history administration.
Oh but he’s broken with the “divisive” Bush stance. LOL
Don’t forget p!iing-off his cabinet members by trying to use a few dozen “czars” to do their work.
Sometimes it’s good to be the opposition. I heard dissent is Patriotic.
p!iing-off = p!issng-off
Oh, and most of his senior staff have now been served with subpoenas.
I think Obama and his street mob is going to make the Clintons look like boy scouts!!!
How fast can you say: “perjury...perjury...perjury”?
Not quite as fast as I can say "hit-list"... people are about to meet with untimeliness.
Five days and his aides are getting subpoena’ed. That must be a land speed record.
The Blago shenanigans just grow and grow like a Chia Pet doused in Miracle Grow.
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...
LOL! *snicker* Oh my, that's a good one.
Don’t forget getting pissy with the media a couple of days a go.
Like Mayor Washington....It’ll look like a heart attack.
I gave a copy to dad to read....with a few notes written in the margin.....Blank-o is just an interstate heading toward the main goal...Obama.
Lol, no doubt I have missed many and this was in the FIRST week.
This may be fun - as long as we can keep him from ruining our country.
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”.
Valerie Jarrett is from Iran. I didn’t realize that until a few days ago.
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.
Kinda makes you sentimental for the simpler days of the Clinton Graft Machine (TM).
Wow. That's a new one on me. I thought he died after he took one look at that painting of him in a bikini.
[I dont 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..
I doubt he will notice. He has bought his own hype. He is the ONE.
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?
“Perjury”, a blast from the past-——
Lol, great post and you forgot the two bums in the middle!!
At least one of them is ‘extra wide’, did you see a recent picture of Hillary?
Wow, no wonder she dressed in a Parka style coat at the Inaugural and looked like a giant purple grape!
It will be interesting to see how the obots spin this news from AP no less.
I think there are going to start serving at the Obama Fish Fry real soon!
Three week turnaround, eh? Wow, he is both optimistic and delusional. I bet he gets bored awiting on Minute Rice to cook.
awiting = waiting
Sorry John...I’m on a really slow dial up service and am only able to download Youtube after hours of waiting....Could you give me a synopsis...please.
Three weeks huh? Is he expecting to go somewhere?.....................Like to jail?
requests for records involving David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett
re: promises — http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/
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 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.
...And those who weren't served will be doing some sweating...
Christmas is over but I'll still post this graphic. Late gifts can be good..maybe we'll get some.
Oh, now we must not forget the tax cheat who is being nominated for IRS chief. Talk about the fox guarding the chicken coop!
