    I voted for Obama, but his response to Axelrod's comments is shockingly weak. Either he had a conversation with the governor, or he didn't. If Obama wants to start lying before he's even taken the oath of office, his hair will turn gray faster than Clinton's did.

    Link? Are you saying Obama had a conversation about selling his senate seat?

    Well. If we go by the regular pattern of Obama. He denied even having a conversation, then said he 'misspoke' about that...

    Let's go back in the past.

    He couldn't possibly have known Rev. Wright was controversial. Then, he knew but hadn't ever been in the pew... Then, he was in the pew... Then, well, I don't go there no more but he's my 'crazy uncle'... Then, I ran over him with my boat yesterday so that he won't be able to talk anymore.... (this after, I remind you exactly one year after, the interview with Wright in TIME that Wright specifically spoke about how they talked about how to distance Obama from Wright, saying how they knew he was too controversial and how they would have to do it if it became apparent he might win the nomination).

    And that is just one crazy pastor, imagine if he had something real to hide!

    How many steps before we finally get the truth from Obama?

    Yeah, I agree on his relationship with Rev. Wright...he's full of shit. But I'm asking about this current thing...because I don't think the question was if he talked to Blago, the question was if he talked about selling his senate seat, and it seems rather clear that he did not. Like I said on another thread, Blago is on tape saying fuck Obama more than once...that doesn't sound like cooperation.

    It's a pattern with Obama, that was my point. If he said he never spoke to him, but we find out that he has... well, in about 3 months after the inauguration we'll find out that Obama ordered the Governor to sell his seat and they came up with a plan together on how to get away with it without incriminating Obama... But it will be Blogo's word against his and he's "The One"...

    It isn't possible that as a senator he never spoke to his state's gov...so methinks you all are getting your panties in a twist over some misrepresentation on a wingnut blog.

    Methinks you are taking obvious sarcasm too seriously. This usually means at least a "lean" to the left... (more obvious sarcasm for the humor impaired)

    Obamanation so loathed the Governor that he wasn't invited unto their platform at the convention.

    If you're being informed that Obama and that Gov were pals, I don't know where you're getting that information, but it run contrary to everything I've heard.

    Apparently nobody in either party liked that Gov, precisely because he was so obviously a grasping crook.
