Skip to comments.Testimony: Obama Had 4 Senate Successors In Mind
Posted on 06/24/2010 2:11:08 PM PDT by Nachum
Jurors in ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich's corruption trial got a purported look Thursday at a short list of candidates President Obama favored to replace him in the U.S. Senate.
Federal prosecutors played a tape that revealed the first official message from the budding Obama administration about who the president supported for the Senate seat.
In the call, Blagojevich's chief of staff, John Harris, tells his boss that Rahm Emanuel, Obama's soon-to-be top aide, had called him to give him a list of four people that Obama would find acceptable as his successor in the Senate. They were Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.; injured Iraq War vet Tammy Duckworth; U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Illinois State Comptroller Dan Hynes.

The list, ping
It’ll be interesting. But unless they have video of Barama saying “pay the man” then he’ll never have to answer for it.
Sorry to be so cynical.
This is going to be a fun trial to watch!

Maybe 0bama will at least sweat a little.
Jan Schakowsky ?????
Now I know Barry is insane.
Obama has already lied to an FBI agent. He said he was unaware of any deal.
Regardless of the legality of the deal itself, Obama has already set himself up for impeachment and may do jail time. This is what Martha Stewart was convicted of doing. No one is above the law. Of course, Biden would likely pardon Obama after he steps down.
This trial and a lot of other things too.
Wish it were so. After reading about the scams with CCX and other financial misdeeds, I think Obama and his fellow crooks can get away with anything. What happened to all the investigators in this country anyway?
Or catch a few flies
“What happened to all the investigators in this country anyway?”
Too busy chasing after high-profile Conservative Christians, trying to catch them with their pants down with women not their wives.
Bite Me! .. if I'm wrong. ;-)

0bama is a cruel joke and a domestic enemy of the Constitution of the United States of America. We have to impeach this Resident!
That, or in Alaska trying to find something about Sarah.
Popcorn ‘n Beer.
Impeaching a Democratic president for lying under oath after a GOP landslide midterm election victory.
Where have I seen this movie before?
It’s pretty bad when you wish the fly could take the Resident’s place! How much worse could the fly do?
A landslide in November will be one hell of a start! It’s going to happen without a doubt!
“Regardless of the legality of the deal itself, Obama has already set himself up for impeachment and may do jail time.”
From your keyboard to God’s ear! I would love to see it, but IMO Obama could be eating babies on the steps of the Supreme Court and the SRM and Justice Dept would ask him if he wanted to see a wine list!
It’s funny how there is virtually no coverage of this on MSM.
When will the SCOTUS, NSA, CIA., Military chiefs etc, exercise their Constitutional authority and get rid of this bastard/traitor for us????
Perjury - High crime and misdemeanor an impeachable offense. What aboyt Romanov and Sestak. Pay for Play for the offense of another federal statute interfering with elections. Tell your Congressman and senator to do their job do the articles of impeachment. Inform them that a crime has been committed failure to abide by the constitution, the congress and senate can be implicated for a crime too.
What a bastard faggot 0bozo is! He’s got his patented “deadly serious intense” look on his face again.....whenever he’s getting ready to screw our nation again. If there is a God in heaven (and yes, I believe there is), I hope & pray that God will rain a vicious plague upon 0bczo the muzzlim commie pig and all his household, including his phat-ass ugly wife, etc. I hope & pray that God takes 0bozo’s mind from him, like he did to Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4:28-33 for Nebuchadnezzar’s narcissistic pride and caused him to eat grass for a year like a beast in the field. I hope all this & more is visited on this commie pig 0bozo usurper-in-crap.
I sadly agree with you. And personally I am hoping & praying for a modest Republican resurgence, let alone a landside. DemoRATs & the media will rain down a blitzkrieg of dis-information, mis-information, blatant lies, ballot stuffing, bogus counts & recounts, flat-out election stealing & so forth. Nov 2010 will be the most corrupt election in U.S. history, to be exceeded only by the future election of Nov 2012. I believe our nation will only survive if & when conservative southern & western states start to secede from the USSA and form a government based on our original Declaration of Independence and ORIGINAL Constitution with only the first 10 amendments -- let's re-examine which of the subsequent amendments are really valid or nothing more than earlier forms of socialism & totalitarianism.
When his four years are up, every flag near him is going in the trash can as sure as he spits on Washington portrait in the White House.
I pray every day for God to remove Obama from power.
It was the State-run media that took Nixon down. Sadly, the State-run media is nothing but a bunch of Obama cheerleaders.
As such, Zero will not go down on this — the press will not pursue the issue. Look what happened with Joe Sestak. Had that been a Republican and the sh - t would have hit the fan big time!!
If anything, it adds credibility to the other bribes he accused of making.
But she's not on the list.
So Hop Sing will deliver to her place, no problem.
