Posted on 04/24/2010 4:38:44 AM PDT by The Raven
WASHINGTON -- Sections of court papers filed by scandal-scarred former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich that were mistakenly made public show a deeper involvement by President Obama in picking his Senate successor and call into question the president's public statements on the case.
According to passages in the papers filed Thursday by Blagojevich's lawyers -- which were blacked out under a judge's order but made visible by a computer glitch -- Obama, then president-elect, spoke directly to the disgraced governor on Dec. 1, 2008.
But just one week later -- on the day Blagojevich was indicted -- Obama told reporters flatly, "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so we were not -- I was not aware of what was happening."

OK Obie, so what else are you lying about?
He did not have sex with that woman.
Ummm uhhh uhhh
If his lips are moving HE’S LYING!
Awww man, Obama-commie lies about everything ... sheesh. What a guy.
There is no doubt in my mind that Obama and Blago talked either directly or through an intermediary like Rahm.
I am sure there was also some talk about some quid pro quo involved as well.
But then bribery and corruption are a way of life in Chicago politics. Chicago makes Mexico look like a bunch of pussycats by comparison.
One of the best weapons liberals have in their arsenal is their ability to make it appear as though conservative are responsible for the chaotic state of today's Congress and government. And we let them do that. We are so afraid of sounding like cry babies that we let them do and say all sorts of things that are out and out lies, but lies that are bought by the dumbed-down voters whose total understanding of life comes from a public education. The progressives have spent the better part of 50 years now infiltrating every aspect of American life, especially the school system. As a result, almost no one under 65 recognizes or understands the threat our country faces now.
The upcoming election will be a sure and certain indication of just how far gone we are, and our hope of reversing course. I fear it will not be good for those of us who want to take back the America we grew up loving.
That´s the 1st thought in the morning, THIS is only the tip of the iceberg. Sad tha the FREE PRESS, the investigative reporters all belonged to another era.
I just don't remember the threads where those photos were posted.
I THINK IT IS REMARKABLE THAT WITHIN A WEEK OF TIGER WOODS CRASHING HIS ESCALADE, THE PRESS FOUND EVERY WOMAN WITH WHOM TIGER HAS HAD AN AFFAIR IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, WITH PHOTOS, TEXT MESSAGES, RECORDED PHONE CALLS, ETC.
AND, THEY NOT ONLY KNOW THE CAUSE OF THE FAMILY FIGHT, BUT THEY EVEN KNOW IT WAS A WEDGE FROM HIS GOLF BAG THAT HIS WIFE USED TO BREAK OUT THE WINDOWS IN THE ESCALADE. NOT ONLY THAT, THEY KNOW WHICH WEDGE!
AND EACH AND EVER DAY, THEY GIVE AMERICA MORE UPDATES ON HIS SEX-REHAB STAY, HIS WIFE’S PLANS FOR DIVORCE, AND HIS PLANS TO RETURN TO THE PRO-GOLF CIRCUIT.
OBAMA HAS BEEN IN OFFICE FOR OVER A YEAR NOW, AND THIS SAME PRESS STILL CANNOT LOCATE OBAMA’S OFFICIAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE, OR ANY OF HIS PAPERS WHILE IN COLLEGE, OR HOW HE PAID FOR A HARVARD EDUCATION, OR WHICH COUNTRY
ISSUED HIS VISA TO TRAVEL TO PAKISTAN IN THE 1980’S AS BARRY SORETORO AND EVEN MICHELLE OBAMA’ S PRINCETON THESIS ON RACISM. IT JUST CAN’T BE FOUND.
YET THE PUBLIC STILL TRUSTS THAT SAME PRESS TO GIVE THEM
THE WHOLE TRUTH . . .
“OK Obie, so what else are you lying about?”
ummm is there anything he’s told them truth about? I think its limited to his marxist and anti-american statements.
LIBERALS MUST LIE TO SUCCEED.
THAT IS A FACT OF LIFE.
THEY CANNOT TELL THE TRUTH BECAUSE TO DO SO WOULD MEAN THEY WOULD NEVER GET ELECTED TO ANY POSITION, NOT EVEN DOG CATCHER.
IT IS EASY TO SHOOT DOWN LIBERAL LIES BUT ONE MUST BE WILLING TO HAVE THE FACTS AND CONFRONT THEM ON THEIR LIES, HAVE THE GUTS TO CONFRONT THEM WHENEVER THEY LIE WHICH IS ALL THE TIME.
It’s very odd to me how the news items that Drudge had up on his page about this simmering Blago/Oabam scandal are GONE.
How Blag wanted to subpoena Obama. Item is GONE.
No mention of this on Drudge this morning???
No need to shout. No need.
ALL of this WILL be thoroughly investigated with hearing in the Congress when WE own the gavel in December.
We need to keep our eye on that ball and do everything in our power to make sure THAT happens.
Then we can impeach and rid ourselves of this Tyrant in training the American way - by voting him into the dust pile of history.
I know but I’m mad as hell about what our government is doing.
More info on the story (it’s far worse for team Obama):
What’s one lie among a thousand?
SSgt, USMC. Thank you for your service and professionalism. My son, a Soldier, will deploy to Afghansitan this summer. What advice and suggestions can you give me to pass onto him. His MOS is Intelligence Collector., Thanks.
The prestitues can quietly bury the story over the weekend.
I remember rahm and hussein BOTH swearing that no contacts were made PERIOD... lying liars and their lying lies.
If his lips are moving HES LYING!
If his lips are blue HES LYING!
Perhaps with a new Congress Obami could face impeachment.
“Obama spent Friday evening on the golf course at the Grove Park, playing with longtime Chicago friends Martin Nesbitt and Eric Whitaker.” (Asheville Citizen-Times 4/24/10)
My bet would be that they’re trying to fix things for the Blalojevich trial.
You are absolutely correct. It was there last night and I read all the links. It’s all gone, photos of Blago with Obama and all, and it’s not like they had to make room for some other breaking story. There’s nothing in its place except that ridiculous report about the face transplant, which was there all along anyway. This is too convenient. Somebody got to Drudge. It’s getting swept under the rug. Censored. So much for a “free” press being essential to the practice of liberty.
It sounds to me like the judge and the feds were already trying to ‘fix’ things for Obama by ‘redacting’ the incriminating evidence in the first place. Who is Martin Nesbitt and Eric Whitaker?
Of course, just as this news comes out, the info about the porn watching at the SEC gets leaked and all the media whores follow that story instead of the news about our thug, lying president. How convenient...(eye roll)
I can’t wait to hear the pundits say that all politicians lie, it’s no big deal. Nothing new to report. They’ll try to condition the masses into thinking it’s not Mr. Obama’s fault that he lies, it’s just part of the culture of politics. And it’s Bush’s fault.
I think if these “journalists” ever actually looked at what they do for a living they would be massively depressed. They’re entire contribution to the world of journalism is to play with the thesaurus while they carefully retain the content of the script they were assigned to write.
This is a quote I saved from a thread on FR:
"The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president".
Blago witness Rezko moved to new jail
February 03, 2009
Tony Rezko, a Chicago businessman linked to President Barack Obama and Illinois former governor, has been moved to a new federal lockup, a U.S. marshal said.
Kim Widup, the head marshal in Chicago, told the Chicago Sun-Times that Rezko was transferred to an unspecified facility from the downtown Metropolitan Correction Center last month.
Widup wouldnt reveal the current whereabouts of Rezko, who is considered a potential witness in the upcoming federal corruption trial of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was impeached and removed from office by the state Legislature.
The newspaper said Tuesday that Rezko had been grousing about being held in solitary confinement at MCC and that the transfer could indicate that federal prosecutors want to keep him cooperative.
Maybe Obama's next job could be on Celebrity Apprentice.
Mistakenly made public papers soon to become MISSING.Wonder why Obama went out of town this weed end?.
I think it is ok for Muslims to lie to the infidels. I believe it is considered absolutely a-ok.
The list, ping
Mandatory. And for Dems it’s SOP. So there you go.
Hmm, Chicago “friends”, eh?
Blago is going to SING like a canary on this one to save his own worthless hide.
Tee-Hee! I love it when ‘Rats start eating their own.
It would be waaaaaaaay too obvious for them to off him, though a rather serious fall down the steps and then an induced coma for the remainder of 0bama’s term shouldn’t be completely ruled out. ;)
Double trouble. If it isn’t one, it’s the other.
