    How many of you REALLY wanted to Believe that??

    It was wrong

    Well here is the REAL Headline THAT NOT ONE MSM shows:

    "Obama real estate partner sentenced 10 1/2 years"..

    Why NOT??? MSM bias once again protecting Obama!!!

    Tony Rezko who helped the Obama’s purchase a home that was otherwise beyond their financial means given a 10 ½ year sentence for corruption.

    Over a decade, Davis’s companies received more than $100 million in subsidies to renovate more than 1,500 Chicago apartments. In some cases he partnered with Tony Rezko. In 1998 they created Neighborhood Rejuvenation Partners LLP. The partnership created New Evergreen/Sedgwick, a $10.7 million renovation of five walk-up buildings in a gentrifying neighborhood that was subsidized by nearly $6 million in state loans and federal tax credits.
    (Another big Woods Fund recipient while they served was the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, “ACORN”, a major Obama campaign get-out-the-vote machine.)

    Campaign records show that Davis and Rezko along with three other prominent developers contributed more than $175,000 to Obama’s campaigns over a decade and raised hundreds of thousands more from other donors. Rezko alone, now a convicted federal felon, contributed at least $200,000.
    This was made possible by a $1 million investment provided by the Woods Fund while Obama and Bill Ayres were on the board.

    As Obama’s career ascended, Rezko became one of his biggest fund raisers, and in 2005 his wife, Rita, helped the Obama family buy a house that was well beyond their financial means. Rezko was under federal investigation for unrelated corruption and bribery offenses at the time.

    When Obama bought the house in Chicago’s Kingwood neighborhood for $1.65 million, Rita purchased adjoining land for $625,000 that the owner of both properties insisted on selling at the same time. Seven months later she sold Obama one-sixth of her lot for $105,000 so that they could expand their yard…rendering the remaining land undesirable for other development.
    (MY NOTE: WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN REZKOS!!!)

    Ahhh, good one.

    Funny how no one is making a big deal about Rezko and his relationship with Obama.

    He's getting a pardon in 2013, anyway.

    Can't be anymore news worth then Clinton Pardoning a man that was still on the run from his conviction after his X-wife paid money to Clinton. That was barely news as well.

    Bait and Switch. Typical unethical Rep behavior. Just like when Newt said he never was a lobbiest for Freedie Mac. Nope, he was an Historian. Hey its your party...you can cry if you want too.

    Actually, this makes Obama look good.

    The guy was obviously investigated in depth in order to convict him beyond a reasonable doubt............and I guess none of the investigation turned up anything shady about Obama afterall.

    Who said Obama did anything shady.. because I didn't!

    My point which seems to go over many of you is the MSM bias would have totally big 6 point headline..if it had been Bush...

    BUT there is NO headline page 6 of my local newspaper AND no mention that of Obama's sweetheart deal on his home purchase!



    So again.. I don't care if Obama is squeaky clean.. WHY not the same treatment headline wise???
    Because MSM is up Obama's leg big time!

    YOU and other supporters totally agree with this MSM editor's awe of Obama when you and he really believe this ..

    "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above –
    above the world, he’s sort of God." –
