    Blagojevich: I’m ‘blacker than Barack Obama’

    "I'm blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived," Blagojevich said. "I saw it all growing up."

    He speaks of deals as well. What is with the comments of late, Reid's, ( Obama's skin color and speech) Clinton's ( Obama would have been serving us a few years ago and now this.

    Did the Dems buy a bulk purchase of shovels to dig the holes the keep putting themselves in? How many people are employed to dig the holes? Are they saved jobs or new?

    I guess that's what the Adminstration meant by providing funding for shovel ready projects.

    Clinton's comment wasn't about race.

    But aside from that, isn't it wonderful that we can discuss race in public and it it is no longer a big deal?

    Thank you, President Obama!

    I think it was to buy the shovels that the media needs to use to keep bailing them out.

    All of those bribes cost money....billions.

    Speaking of shovels, I do remember being in Maryland in the 60's, 'Pax' River, and visiting friends in the surrounding area. Seeing many holes and trenches being dug by hand, no front end loaders, ditch witches etc, and all the guys were white, never saw one black or 'negro' ditch digger. And some of the white guys were eating the fried chicken and eating watermellon for lunch too, that's another stupid stereotyped vision. Who starts this crap anyway? :lol: BTW, I love fried chicken and watermellon, I guess some would feel I need a DNA test. People classified by what they eat, seeesh I am so tired of this nonsense.

    Since Obama is responsible for everything, he gets credit when credit is due.
