    okeydokey.....Blago says he's innocent and 'can't wait' to fight these bogus charges.

    Damn this guy is stubborn. Haha. How long can he jam this up in court, he's flat broke. Is his lawyer going pro bono?

    from The Wall Street Journal

    Dec. 19, 2008
    Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich said he is "not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing" and that he will not quit his position as governor. "I will fight until my last breath," he said. "I'm dying to answer these charges. I am dying to show you how innocent I am."
    Gov. Blagojevich faces charges relating to alleged attempts to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat.

    IMHO, he is perhaps suffering from delusions of grandeur. He thinks he is above the law. He's not. I same bring him down.:cool:

    [FONT=&quot]Blagojevich’s alleged crimes pale next to the larger scandals of Washington and Wall Street. Yet those who promoted and condoned the twin national catastrophes of reckless war in Iraq and reckless gambling in our markets have largely escaped the accountability that now seems to await the Chicago punk nabbed by the United States attorney, Patrick Fitzgerald.[/FONT]

    If he's innocent...I am the ghost of Doris Duke!
    He is just trying to cook the best deal by buying time.

    Wall Street greed has unhinged the entire world economy and you whine about Blago. And all of them will walk away scoot free while the Republicans try to break the UAW for a lousy $15 billion. Classic Faux News. I'm sure if the dems spend too long in power they will be tempted by the abuses of power. But at least they are for the common man and not the common thief.

    I don't know about that...google Hillary Clinton's resume. I hope she is better at her new job than she was as First Lady and NY Senator.

    He was innocent until we heard the wiretapped conversations.

    "I'm completely innocent"

    Sound familiar?

    "I am not a crook"

    There are even tapes...

    Prove to me where laws were broken. Not some subjective notion of right an wrong based on nothing but a blinding hatred of Republicans. Sentiments of injustice are all well and good, but not grounds for incarceration. Sorry.

    Are you seriously trying to say Blagojevich should get off because Wall Street is worse?

    ROFLMAO

    After careful research & inspection of the Illinois physical anatomy, we have found the state's sphincter! Totally without redemption & designed only to eject bullshit!!

    Apparently good enough at both to make her bosses (the people who elected her) happy.

    Actually Wall Street and King George and Darth Cheney. The ultimate low marks in American history. The fact is Republicans are just unfit to govern. They say government is the problem. When you don't believe in an institution you are charged with running what results do you expect?

    Kinda sounds similar to Bush's "I didn't compromise my soul to be a popular guy". He had a soul? Who knew? Maybe if he had compromised his soul this country would be in better economic shape than we are now.

    She would have been re-elected. Her approval ratings were good.
