FLASHBACK-Obama records requests prove fruitless [ALL 7 Years of his Ill State Senate emails GONE]
politico.com ^ | Nov 11 2007 | By MIKE ALLEN

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) dodged questions Sunday about releasing papers from his eight years as an Illinois state senator, and his campaign has not answered records requests from the state’s two largest newspapers.

[snip]

In the Democratic presidential debate in Philadelphia on Oct. 30, Obama said to Clinton: "We have just gone through one of the most secretive administrations in our history, and not releasing, I think, these records at the same time, Hillary, as you're making the claim that this is the basis for your experience, I think, is a problem."

[snip]

On Nov. 3, the Obama campaign sent out a letter from two leaders of his Iowa campaign, pressing Clinton to release her White House schedules before the Iowa caucuses. “Fully releasing these records is in keeping with the spirit of the process that makes the Iowa caucus so special,” the letter says.

[snip]

On Friday, Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that she had asked Obama at a news conference: “Do your state senate papers still exist? If they do, just where are they? And would you ever intend to make them public to be responsive to some requests?”

Sweet wrote that he replied: "Nobody has requested specific documents.”

But the Chicago Tribune has reported that it “requested documents from his time in Springfield and never received a response.”

And Sweet wrote of her own paper, “The Chicago Sun-Times has also been asking about Obama's papers.”

Despite any updates to the story-

NO ONE to this day has located his Illinois state emials, records or even schedule.

This is the way the Democrats work. And the media backs them up.

If it had been LBJ’s men caught burlarizing the Watergate office complex instead of Nixon’s men, LBJ would have asked that the White House tapes be put on a plane and that all the principles in “the affair” get on the same plane and fly down to his Texas ranch for a confab.

The plane would have crashed. That would have been the end of the story. And there would have been no Watergate.

So with the Palin emails: open for review by the world.

Versus the Obama emails: disappeared for ever and ever.

And the media is fine with that. Complicit, in fact.

Standard reponse to anything obama-liberal related:

Laws don’t apply to the special people.

He evolved on planet earth from the 4th dimension...he's a "pod person"...no past, no background, no history, no records...except those two, phoney baloney books "he wrote".

Americans live with the "fraud goggles" on, and just can't see it.

Even if you delete email, then you can still retrive it off a Server. Obviously they are hiding it.

They apparently have scrubbed it. Get a Page Not Found message. Can't have anything potentially embarrassing about The One going up there.

Isn't this the way the MSM operates, though? They'll send an army of reporters and lawyers up to Alaska to dig for dirt in Palin's e-mails, yet lift nary a finger to even try to retrieve Obumwad's e-mails, or even find out why they don't exist. If Palin's e-mails went missing, they'd be screaming bloody murder about "secrecy" and lack of "transparency".

Why would a lawyer retain ANY written records that might prove he was an active participant in the corruption for which a former governor now is being tried?

Does anyone seriously believe Obama would keep any smoking gun that codified in writing the quid pro quo between him and Rezco regarding his sweet real estate deal? Or his communications with either Rezco or Blago regarding stacking the Health Facilities board so that it could be more easily used as a “pay-to-play” cash machine for Blago?

The allies lynched racist Nazi trash at Nurenburg because the meticulous records they kept of their “final solution” implicated them.

It remains to be seen what will happen to the klan with a tan running America.
