    Owe Bama is a criminal political hack just like the rest of the Chicago machine. This kind of news doesn't surprise you, does it?

    Of course with so many Chicago Democrats giving statements and testimonies it's going to be hard to pick out the lies from the truth. I want to believe them but it's just ... so ... hard. :disbelief:

    The ones who mysteriously disappear are the ones telling the truth.

    Nothing new there. That's been Blago's position all along, and OF COURSE his defense lawyer is going to attempt to prove it. However, thus far, it remains heresay evidence. Sorry to burst your balloon.

    From the article:
    Harris said Blagojevich came away believing Obama knew what he wanted after having a conversation with a local union representative, who in turn spoke with labor leader Tom Balanoff, with whom Blagojevich met to discuss a Jarrett appointment. Jarrett, now a White House adviser, was seeking the appointment to Obama's Senate seat.

    According to that, there were four parties involved in an assumption.

    So Obama is either out of the loop and a poor manager (which we knew) or else is a criminal.
    Which is it?

    I'm not foolish enough to believe that someone within the Obama administration wanted to influence who got the Senate seat, but to think Obama (or any of his staff) would promise an idiot like Blagojevich a cushy position is also an idiot. Being "Chicago politicians," Obama, Emanuel and Jarrett knew exactly what Blago was made of and that his only qualifications would have been for Comic Relief Czar.
