A Blag of Dogshit on Fire for Obama's Doorstep
Initial reporting suggests that Obama was not involved in the recent scandal with the Illinois Governor, but ABC Political Punch takes a crack at the Obama-Blag connection. Turns out a host of Obamabots were involved in Blago's 2002 gubernatorial campaign:
And, it should be pointed out, Mr. Obama has a relationship with Mr. Blagojevich, having not only endorsed Blagojevich in 2002 and 2006, but having served as a top adviser to the Illinois governor in his first 2002 run for the state house.I doubt The Obama is dumb enough to get involved with something so...criminal, but sometimes the ACORN doesn't fall far from the tree (wakka-wakka!).
That 2002 endorsement came at the same time that Axelrod had such serious concerns about whether Blagojevich was ready for governing he refused to work for his one-time client.
According to Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., Mr. Obama's incoming White House chief of staff, Emanuel, then-state senator Obama, a third Blagojevich aide, and Blagojevich's campaign co-chair, David Wilhelm, were the top strategists of Blagojevich's 2002 gubernatorial victory.
Whoever thought that anything sleazy could come out of Chicago?
