If he’s going to fight, then is it reasonable to rejoice that he’s going to sing? Why are people so jubilant? Singing would be possible if he remained coy at this point, but spelling out that he’s denying all wrongdoing doesn’t support the notion that Obama’s in trouble here. Or if you disagree, what am I missing here?
Blago is playing it smart, promising to tell his case in court without hinting what he might say.
Gives him the flexibility to negotiate with all sides and get the best possible deal.
This has already gotten past that point. Too many people are seeing too much. Someone will be sacrificed. Not the most important people, mind you, but someone will be thrown to the wolves. Kind of like the Plame non-scandal. The facts were immaterial: someone had to take the fall and it was Libby.
You all must be smoking something that is extremely potent, drinking something incredibly stout, or just damn good dreamers. Obama is not going to get implicated in this. Everything would have already come out by now. It looks like Rahm Emanuel maybe able to be implicated. Ultimately it’s going to come down to the FBI releasing and degrading the classification level on those tapes.
I believe the Blago lawyer speaking at the news conference was Sam Adams Jr., I also believe he was the lawyer that got R Kelly off and they had a videotape of him with an underaged girl. It’s amusing to listen to talk radio with everyone so upset. The Democrat leaders and their cohorts in the news media knew Blago was corrupt, yet they backed him rather than, God forbid, a Republican winning the governor’s office. I’ve seen better research by people on FR then I’ve seen by the news media here....
or is it pay forplay?
Remember James Traficant?
no that was genson the attny for r kelly
Blago will come out ok.
there is NO exchange of actual money. conspiracy is a weak defense.
He will have a defense that there was nothing wrong and everyone already does this out in the open,especially when he asked for money for his campaign financing.Even Hillary asked for help with her campaign financing from Obama, very publicly. contributing to public financing has a whole different set of “rules” than just getting a bag of money directly.
As to all his talk about money and dollar figures, he can blow that off as “bragging or just words”.
Then there is the historical precedent of key campaign contributors, aka Joseph Kennedy, etc, getting nominated for being an international ambassador.
Fitsgerald ( hated that unethical sob when he took down Libby for nothing when he knew the truth) has already tainted any jury pool and was unethical in his press comments about Blago.
FREE BLAGO....LETS SET UP A FUND!!! THE guy is just another capitalist.
It’s all George Bush’s fault. Damn that Bush!
LOL, my thoughts exactly. I was watching it at work closed-captioned with the sound off on this big HDTV in our operations room, and it was hilarious. I wish I had a transcript of that attempted transcript -- typos, misheard words and all. It was great. I was definitely thinking "WTH is he talking about?!"
BHO will plead ignorance but that claim is embarrassingly transparent.
And the somone will be Blago, who, by the way, owed his former law firm something like half a million. Why do you suppose Genson would take on a deadbeat, whose campaign funds (the usual source of cash for a politician) have been frozen? John Kass of the Trib has some clues, even if Blago doesn't.
I was listening to Savage tonight and another NY’er called and was talking about wise guys and the mob being less corrupt than our govt or Bernie Maddoff.
They talked about Blago and Savage said Blago looked like he thought he was fgoing to get off. Savage said Blago knows enough about Rahm and Obama that it will all be swept under the carpet. Nothing will happen.
I am hoping Fitz will suprise me and indict Rahm and O but I think the Justice Dept is as corrupt as the SEC, the Senate, SCOTUS, POTUS, the DNC, and the list goes on and on. Russia is now less corrupt than America.
So does Rezko, and none of the big fish have been caught in that net, nor will they ever be, it seems.
If you read the section of the criminal complaint against Blago concerning his and Rezko's illegal fundraising, the charges are based solely on Ata's testimony, with a footnote that Rezko's "reliability has yet to be fully determined." In other words, in spite of all the talk about his spilling the beans to the Feds, his memory appears to be impaired. Imagine that.
NO! I will fight, I will fight, I will fight with my last breath NOT to watch this clip again. Send him and his hair to the woodshed for he deserves. What I am not going to do is listen to him in 30 second sound bites while he bobs around the podium like he is tap dancing.That is worse than OB urr, uh, well a no I uhm can’t a formulate a sentence when I am lying through my teeth speak.
In other words...I will sing like a caged canary OB if you dont step up and bail me out. This will get interesting as this dope tries to save his buckus and takes any and all down with him. This is by far a nightmare for Dems. Wow, pass the popcorn this is going to be a great show.
