Duff and others
Anyone notice how the Clintons have moved in on Obama. And the denutting of Gov Richards is a beautiful thing. Have him quit his secure Governorship and take a second level Cabinet Position. At a time of their choosing the Clinton's will have Obama dismiss Richards and there he goes.

Those Clintons, you just don't mess with them. For some reason many people suspect that in a little lock box in Arkansas an original birth certificate for Obama sits. Along with his nuts.

We can enjoy while the lefties here take the pipe.


I see where another Clinton reprobate is serving on Obama's cabinet. Caror Browner, head of the EPA in the Clinton cabale is now Obama's energy chief.
I was thinking that Clinton has pictures of Obama with little boys, but maybe you are right Putz.
The Clintons may just have something better.
Can we have an inauguration and impeachment on the same day?


Yes Puts I am impressed with the apparent positions being assumed by the Clinton folks. It obviously pleases me. I've always maintained that one should never underestimate the vast sweeping power of the Clintons'. They are nothing to mess with and the DO have the goods on many (ala: remember the FBI files). This is getting interestinger and interestinger.

If so Chucks then I got one word of advice for Joe Biden: Run!!!!!

These Dems don't realize that you can't shake the Clintons. Once they get in they don't leave unless they want to leave. They don't seem to be so inclined at this point.

For the rest of us, it's time to get the popcorn and watch. And for once you won't have to hear too much blame thrown on W.


Wow, looks like the Clintons may have more to work with...

"A former Illinois real estate specialist says FBI agents have questioned him about a Chicago property that had been bought by convicted felon Tony Rezko’s wife and later sold to the couple’s next-door neighbor, Sen. Barack Obama.

The real estate specialist, Kenneth J. Conner, said bank officials replaced an appraisal review he prepared on the property and FBI agents were investigating in late 2007 whether the Rezko-Obama deal was proper.

“Agents and I talked about payoff, bribe, kickback for a long time, though it took them only a short number of minutes of talking with me while looking at the appraisal to acknowledge what they already seemed to know: The Rezko lot was grossly overvalued,” Mr. Conner told The Washington Times Monday.

“Rezko paid the asking price on the same day Obama paid $300,000 less than the asking price to the same seller for his adjacent mansion,” he said. “This begs the question of payoff, bribe, kickback.”

The Other Kevin

As an Obama voter, the above revelations deeply concern and trouble me. Bribemaster Barack's interest in "business as usual" is a sore letdown for those of us who had a shred of hope for change and now have been crapped on.

The Other Kevin

So - turns out Michelle Obama is the "specifically named individual" in the criminal complaint. And there's a burgeoning revelation of a pay for play deal to get her appointed to the Board of Directors of Treehouse Foods.

Are we witnessing the ascension of one of the most freewheeling, scandal-plagued, corrupt politicians in history?

Change we can believe in? More like change we can BANK on.


oh now Kevin...say it ain't so!

i find this hard to believe. Corrupt Democrats?

Thankfully we got the tried and true Clintons ready in the wings... I still recall Bill Clinton terming Obama as a 'typical chicago thug politician.'

Sparky, ph(J)oanie, Coils, et al... can it be true?
And poor Jesse Jackson Jr. How unfair. And to happen so close to the Fitzmas Season.

Ted Stevens was a piker...


Wow, if only our resident Twig Truthers are whatever they call themselves had the intellectual honesty to ask why:

":Obama Was Silent About Illinois Corruption

John Fund notes that the media spent a whole lot more time checking out Palin’s political past in Wasilla than they did checking out Obama’s background in Chicago politics.

What remains to be seen is whether this episode will put an end to what Chicago Tribune political columnist John Kass calls the national media’s “almost willful” fantasy that Mr. Obama and Chicago’s political culture have little to do with each other. Mr. Kass notes that the media devoted a lot more time and energy to investigating the inner workings of Sarah Palin’s Wasilla, Alaska, than it has looking at Mr. Obama’s Chicago connections.

To date, Mr. Obama’s approach to Illinois corruption has been to congratulate himself for dodging association with it. “I think I have done a good job in rising politically in this environment without being entangled in some of the traditional problems of Chicago politics,” he told the Chicago Tribune last spring. At the time, Mr. Obama was being grilled over news that he bought his house through a land deal involving Tony Rezko, a political fixer who was later convicted on 16 corruption counts. Rezko is mentioned dozens of times in the 76-page criminal complaint against Mr. Blagojevich.

Mr. Obama has an ambiguous reputation among those trying to clean up Illinois politics. “We have a sick political culture, and that’s the environment Barack Obama came from,” Jay Stewart, executive director of the Chicago Better Government Association, told ABC News months ago. Though Mr. Obama did support ethics reforms as a state senator, Mr. Stewart noted that he’s “been noticeably silent on the issue of corruption here in his home state including, at this point, mostly Democratic politicians.”

Hope ‘n change."
Or maybe Bill Clinton was right? Yikes...


(on a related note)
Interesting article by Alexander Haig, who said; "We should get rid of all of the Neo-cons" (i.e. Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz and many others in the current administration) - they have been shown to be the Republi-con men. Seems like Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin like to back up the neo-cons - disturbing and that's why I don't listen and pay much attention to what they say any more.

They have decimated the Republican party and the perception is that the religious right and the neo-cons are melding together toward a theocracy. Kevin Phillips has written about this and it seems to have legs these days.


Puts - I'd give Obama the benefit of a doubt here, not to completely excuse it - don't see him condoning Gov. Blago's actions. Face it, Chicago is a sewer of corruption and makes King County look like grade school. I'd acknowledge that he has made some good picks for cabinet positions. I think his pick for Sec'y of Energy (Energy Czar) Dr. Stephen Chu is a probably another good one.

Seems like Rahm Emanuel may be deeper in the Gov's corruption than first suspected and could be damaged goods and clearly Jesse Jackson Jr. has been damaged as should be the case.


"I see where another Clinton reprobate is serving on Obama's cabinet. Caror Browner, head of the EPA in the Clinton cabale is now Obama's energy chief."

Wrong ! He nominated Stephen Chu PhD in Physics from UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Better than Browner - she was a hack.

Obama's Dept. of Education nominee might as well have been a Clinton appointee. Who will he put up for Surgeon General ? Another Jocelyn Elders ? Even money that it will be.
