Barack Obama has attempted to distance himself from the crash and burn that is governor Rod Blagojevich. Obama can run but he can’t hide. Obama and Blagojevich took considerable amounts of money from convicted criminal Antoin “Tony” Rezko and top Obama aide, Michael Strautmanis, worked for Blagojevich.
Rezko not only gave Obama money for his presidential bid and convinced others to ante up, he also advised Obama on the purchase of a new Chicago home.
In the lead-up to the election numerous commentators pointed out Obama’s relationship with the corrupt dirt bag Rezko in addition to his relationship with terrorist William Ayers and Obama’s relationship with Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, the preacher Obama said he could not “disown” any more than his “white grandmother.”
Nothing would stick, though, because the corporate media was caught up in the disgusting whirlwind of Obama mania it had created. A few neocon trolls over at Fox News tried ever so lamely to out Obama and his various sordid relationships but it was all for naught. After the election when Obama nominated the same old wizened and tired insiders to run his administration and threw in veteran Iran-Contra criminal Robert Gates for good measure — in effect, the man who cerated al-Qaeda under the reprehensible William Casey — the neocons came around and applauded. It was truly a spectacle to see.
Even so, this Blagojevich business has the ability to tarnish Obama before he enters the White House, so he is desperately attempting to insert distance between himself and the Illinois political mobster and snake oil salesman who attempted to sell Obama’s Senate seat right out from under him.
In regard to Blagojevich conspiring to sell or trade for personal benefit the Senate seat left vacant by Obama, the president select said on December 9: “I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so I was not aware of what was happening,” according to the Associated Press.
Either Obama had a big time memory lapse or he is lying through his teeth.
“Now that Barack Obama will be moving to the White House, his seat in the U.S. Senate representing Illinois will have to be filled,” KHQA 7 reported on November 8. “Obama met with Governor Rod Blagojevich earlier this week to discuss it.”
As to be expected, this news report is no longer on the KHQA website, it was memory holed. It was however cached and archived after Yahoo crawled the web, as search engines are inclined to do.
So here we have Obama telling a bald-faced lie about his relationship with the criminal slime bucket Blagojevich, who will likely spend a few months in one of those golf club prisons for his shameless pandering. Not word one about Obama’s lie in the corporate media.
It’s said after Obama selected Clinton and Gates and the CFR and Goldman Sachs gang to run his administration the honeymoon was over, at least for the liberals who believed the mirage right up to the end, never mind the smack-down betrayal on Obama’s promise to end the brutal and illegal occupation of Iraq.
Now Obama is telling more lies and nobody beyond the blogosphere and a small corner of the alternative media has the nerve to call him out on it.
A soon to be president telling such big lies should be newsworthy. It’s not because the narcosis of Obama mania is still thick in the air and besides most people expect presidents to lie and start wars and sell the country down the river. Few cared when Clinton lied about “that woman” (while under oath nonetheless) and less seem to care about Obama’s lie.
