    Uh oh.

    Tom Balanoff, a top Service Employee International Union [SEIU] official, is at the heart of the Blogo investigation due to heavy-handed scheming to secure a union-friendly Senator in the empty seat.

    It gets better. The SEIU spent $29.2 million to support Obama's campaign this year. Balanoff admits that his political ties with Obama stretch back some 15 years.

    The Federal affidavid says that Blago approached SEIU, hoping that the union officials would reach out to Obama to get him the Change to Win job. In return, Blago would appoint Senate Candidate #1 -- Obama's longtime friend Valerie Jarrett.

    Oopsy Daisy.

    starinvestor: Why are you so intent with smearing the president elect? The guy started a political career in Illinois. Of course he's gonna have ties to all the sleazebags in the corrupt Chicago machine. That's inevitable. you have to get into (political) bed with a few corrupt characters to make it in that town - exploit the existing system - or you won't go anywhere.

    But Obama still came out of that corrupt environment idealistic, perfectly sane and passionate about his vision for this country. He didn't turn into Ted Stevens. He deserves a lot of credit for resisting temptation that had to come his way.

    I think the point starinvestor is trying to make is that maybe he didn't resist.

    Me, I think he's clean or at the least is very good at covering his tracks. I don't think the DNC would have ran him without checking for loose ends, but we'll see. There's blood in the water.

    Star this fetish of yours is getting pretty pathetic. I'm not saying Obama deserves blind praise but nothing is more UNpatriotic than not supporting the leader of our nation, especially before he's even been sworn is. It's going to be a long 8 years for you my friend.

    My point is that his hands are dirty. If he ascended through the Chicago/Illinois mafia-style-government this quickly without without playing the same twisted game I'll do backflips down Pennsylvania Avenue.

    You cannot associate and connect with this many criminals without leaving stains all over the place.

    If he truly stayed away from Blago's offer, good for him. But there are too many roads through crimeville leading directly to Mr. Obama.

    Like you guys did with Bush in 2000, right? Because all the way up to the inauguration, and after, it was always about how he stole the election, right?

    It's funny that this election around, it was ABSOLUTELY CLEAR that Obama was attempting voter fraud through ACCORN by registering thousands of fake voters including dead people, cartoon characters, and double registrations in Ohio and other battleground states. And even though he was an attorney for their organization before he went into politics, and even though he has given them hundreds of thousands of dollars, we've overlooked that, AND Obama's birth certificate issue. But seriously, how many damn things are we supposed to overlook in regards to Obama? N. O. no

    It's going to be a short, painful 4 years for all of us, my friend.

    I rarely say this but this post is a LOAD of CRAP............Obama has been treating Blago as radio-active for YEARS..........I guess you didn't hear the tapes where Blago said,in effect, FUCK OBAMA for refusing to Pay for Play.......Please make a list of all the Criminals that Obama has been associated and what those associations are and how they have "stained" Obama.......until you do this, I'm afraid any stains on Obama are merely the wishful thinking of YOU

    UM........It may crystal clear in YOUR mind that Obama was attempting voter fraud,which is a felony, through Acorn(get the acronym right for Pete's sake), unfortunately for you, the facts do NOT bear this out.

    Proof?

    And when you were asking for a list of all of the scumbags that Obama has been in bed with, here goes:

    (from a different post) And let's not forget Obama's buddies Ayers (known to have started his political career in his house and wrote a blurb in Ayer's books), Jeremiah Wright (who married the Obamas, called the US "the US of KKA" and damned it, and recieved 20,000 in donations from Obama), Tony Rezko (who was part of Obama's senatorial finance committee, is in the process of going to jail, who gave Obama a huge discount on his mansion and was a BIG backer of Blagojevich's campaigns, donating over 100,000), ACCORN (the infamous group that was commiting voter fraud in Ohio and other states leading up to the election, who Obama personally represented as their attorney and gave 800,000 to), and others.

    Sorry guys but if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, chances are... it's a duck.


    ... and those are just the most noteworthy guys, if you want to hear more, Ill do some more research and post more later.

    The first three letters of your LPSG username are 'sta'
    Those three letters also appear in Joseph Stalin, in the same order!
    Coincidence? I think not.
    Definitely mysterious.

    IS, everything is a load of crap to you whenever its not a ringing endorsement of Obama.

    Have you ever even entertained, for 2 seconds out of your life, that the possibility exists that you don't know everything about this man?

    Blindly worshipping this man and dismissing everything that suggests otherwise is setting you up for a big, big disappointment.

    Non-issue. If it were an issue the Supreme Court would've patronized the case. What exactly is the issue? I can wait for you to rewind your O'Reilly factor to fill up this empty ass talking point.

    I'll give you a hint, if you actually do your research you'll find that Obama IS a US citizen so instead of defending this non-issue, deflect and change course. Bring up Ayers or the terrorist fist bump, you're going to embarrass yourself and sound like one of those crazy homeless people ranting about Elvis if you continue the birth certificate angle.

    Actually Obama's meteoric rise is due to two things:

    1). Rod is a known scammer and an overgrown big boy lookin' thug. He is however, married to a VERY powerful family that have been enjoying the perks shall we say that come with being the in-laws of the governor of one of the most powerful states in the country.

    Obama comes from the clean side of Illinois politics... his mentor in the Senate is Dick Durbin who is probably one of the cleanest politicians in Washington. Obama and the other clean Illinois politicians have always known about the intense corruption that is throughout the Chicago "Machine".

    They needed to run Obama and they needed him to run QUICKLY!!!! This scandal was gonna come out and they needed to get him in office before it hit the news. It looks like he just barely made it.

    2). They were soooo excited that Obama was not the usual corrupt Chicago politician that the machine wanted him to become as powerful as he could, as fast as he could. This would allow the Chicago machine to have a friend in the white house and an open ear for their needs. When they found out that Obama was clean... Daly pulled out all of the stops and put Obama on the FAST TRACK. Daly knew that Obama could become president and saw the same qualities that the American electorate does. I mean, Michelle worked in Daly's office and used to tell Richard, "Wait until you meet my husband... you will be blown away."

    She was right.

    Keep it up, star, the Obamanable sheeple around here have their minds made up ... if they have to face the truth often enough maybe it will sink in that Obama is not Mr. Clean.

    Leave it up to a right-winger to give half-truths, hyperbole, speculation, and downright lies, and criticize someone for "ignoring the truth."

    I think you got it wrong, Obama refused to pay NOW. Blago, wanted to get paid upfront, not in two years when he was out of office. Thuse the Fuck Obama quote. Someone told him he had to wait? Who was it?
