    What the fuck Blagojevich? Every time Illinois has a great politician, i.e. Obama, some douche bag ruins it.

    Hate to break it to you, but Obama also arose from the cesspool known as Chicago politics. He's far more shrewd than this wingnut Blago, though. :rolleyes:

    Nice to see that people still think the "guilty by association" card still works. Obama's from Chicago, so that automatically makes him a crook, huh? The same way that most people considers anyone that lives in Mississippi to be a redneck? Seriously... when does it all end?

    Corruption is a culture of Chicago politics. Look at his predecessors.

    I personally enjoyed seeing the tape of him after winning election, where he tells of a phone conversation with his mom where he made clear that he would never lie or take bribes-maybe it was Rod's evil, previously unknown twin brother Yod.

    Dude, ask anyone that lives in South Illinois and Chicago. It is the murder capitol of the US, with the highest murder rate, and the highest taxes in the country. Ask anyone that lives there, and they will tell you that the Chicago political machine is the most corrupt establishment there is... and we've just put their baby, their invented candidate Obama, smack dab in the white house.

    It is said that anyone who ascended politically in Chicago as fast as Obama did HAS to be corrupt. Only difference between Obama and Blagojevich is that Obama is extremely intelligent and skilled at worming his way out of accusations, Blagojevich is just a total moron. 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.

    Funny the hypocrisy in all of this, though, because if ANY Republican politician had these kinds of associations and connections... you wouldn't ever stop hearing about it from the media and lefties.

    To some degree it's already there. Has anyone been paying mind to what longterm fatcat Congressman (15th) Charles Rangel has been up to? Hmm..maybe I'll start a thread on this.

    I'm still waiting to see if Obama is tied into any of this, my gut feeling is that he's clean.

    You'll have to wait until the ethics board rules on it, but it sounds like a good thread waiting to happen!!!

    I started it anyway-in part it just goes into how either side (Dem or Repub.) has an unfortunate tendency to self-implode. It seems to become worse the longer the pol is in office-a sad commentary on how being well intentioned can turn someone to corruption, often times I am sure, without them even being aware that is happening (at first).

    I haven't seen anything that would lead me to believe Pres. Elect Obama is corrupt. He is shrewd and calculating, but thats a long way from corrupt. He has already backed down from most if not all his campaign promises and he is going to struggle to get anything accomplished as his mandate was to tax and spend and now he said he won't tax.

    Like I said, I am not making an accusations, but to assume he is totally clean is naive at best.

    I repeat, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it probably is a duck.

    When is this guy going to stop getting free passes and stop denouncing people that he has heavily associated with in the past only when politically expedient to do so.... and start owning up? He has lied and flip flopped on so many issues during the campaign, it is very hard to believe ANYTHING he says. Classic politician

    for examples of his lies, watch: "Dear Mr Obama, who are you?" on you tube

    Gte your facts straight.........Obama didn't even endorse Blago for governor and has been treating him as radioactive for years........Blago was nowhere to be seen at the Dem Convention or even at the election night rally in Grant Park........there is no "close association" between blago and obama.......or Ayers and Obama. If you know of one...PROVE IT!...I'm sure the media will eat it up.

    Ahhh... I am sure that everyone knew about how crooked Rod was. Maybe not Jesse Jackson jr. though (he's not too bright). Obama can smell a douchenozzle like Rod a mile away.

    I can't believe that he is still in office and has a "Go fuck yourself!" attitude about this. He is truly straight out of the 1920's with his power plays and provocations. His wife is a veritable maniac too, and is often screaming Democrat that I know and I am from Chicago. They do remind me of a mafia couple though... and I wouldn't be surprised if Rod turned up dead in the near future. His power and wealth comes from her family and I am sure that they are not pleased with their son in law at all!! :mad:

    Apparently Blago said that he offered Obama a deal for the seat and Obama told him to fuck off. However, if this is true then Obama knew what Blago was doing and instead of blowing the whistle on him he chose to look the other way, which raises serious questions about Obama. In other words, Obama knows a governor is trying to sell a senate seat and does nothing to stop it? That is guilt by association.
