The question is not if Clinton will be president. That has been sealed long ago.
The only question that was only decided now was what role will OBomber play.

Obama obviously has very poor judgment.
What have the obamabots got to say about this? Is there a chink in the armour now? Maybe he's not the Messiah after all.... (duh!)

Re: Barack Obama chief Rahm Emanuel urged to resign
ya know, i would actually like to be proven wrong about Obama, that he's NOT a NWO stooge, but for that to happen he has to make it to the White House

i'm not totally sure if these scandals are indicative of what we'll see from the Obama administration or if someone is trying to set him up to take him out

If Bozo turned a blind eye and had knowledge of Blagos solicitation of bribes he is guilty under the US code:

§ 4. Misprision of felony

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both... ..............This is when we will hear that our laws concerning punishment do not apply..

Re: Barack Obama chief Rahm Emanuel urged to resign
Reading the transcript, it appears Rahm Emanuel had knowledge of what was about to happen to Blagojevich.

Rahm clearly was not comfortable speaking to Blagojevich from the start of the conversation. Blagojevich is agitated when Emanuel emphasises that he is offering nothing more than appreciation.

Rahm clearly knows what is up and offers Blagojevich nothing. Not only that he reminds Blagojevich that Obama cut ties with him in 2006.

I do not understand how this reflects poorly on either Emanuel or Obama since it would be standard procedure for any Governor to ask for a list of candidates from the person vacating the seat. That act in itself isn't damning at all.

Hate to say it but you got nothing here!

BARACK Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, was under pressure to resign last night after it was revealed he had been captured on wire taps discussing candidates for the US president-elect's Illinios Senate seat.

Mr Emanuel's presence at the heart of the scandal threatens to roil Mr Obama's administration as a Chicago prosecutor builds his corruption case against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, The Australian reports.

The Chicago Tribune did not suggest any dealmaking in the conversations Mr Emanuel had before the election with the Blagojevich administration, and Mr Obama has strongly denied anyone on his team committed any wrongdoing.

Mr Blagojevich - accused of plotting to sell Mr Obama's Senate seat in return for financial and political favours - showed no sign of resigning yesterday, consulting a leading Chicago criminal lawyer.

He held a four-hour meeting with Ed Genson, who defended newspaper baron Conrad Black.
 Quoting: tommy777


this is stupid. Who is saying he felt under pressure to resign? The journalist? How stupid.

Who is urging the chief of staff to resign?

This article is stupid and I can see why GLP pinned this shit. LOL

Re: Barack Obama chief Rahm Emanuel urged to resign
the style of the transcript is like a poorly written dialogue between two political thugs for a second rate film.

having Harris mumble in the background and shred the papers was a nice touch but clearly fictional.

I can't beleive anyone accepts this as fact. I hadn't read the whole thing when I posted earlier that the transcript reads like bs. Later I did read the whole thing and definitely realized its just a joke.

there is another thread floating around that exposes it as a joke as well.

don't beleive everything you read.

No taint seen on Prez-elect, but Rahm Emanuel gave a wishlist for Senate

BY CELESTE KATZ
DAILY NEWS POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT

Sunday, December 14th 2008, 12:47 AM
Dharapak/AP

President-elect Barack Obama's right-hand man reportedly gave the disgraced Blagojevich administration a list of four women Obama considered acceptable to fill his U.S. Senate seat.

Rahm Emanuel, the Illinois congressman who will serve as Obama's White House chief of staff, was heard discussing the issue on court-approved wiretaps with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's chief of staff, the Chicago Tribune said.

The candidates "acceptable" to Obama on the list Emanuel provided included a trio of female Democrats: longtime Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, Illinois Veterans Affairs chief Tammy Duckworth and U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Chicago.

Emanuel later added a fourth Democratic woman, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, to the roster, the source told the Tribune.

Blagojevich and his former chief of staff, John Harris, face federal charges of trying to auction off Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder. Harris has resigned.

"The revelation does not suggest Obama's new gatekeeper was involved in any talk of deal-making involving the seat," the Tribune said.

Representatives of Obama's transition team did not respond to requests for comment about Emanuel's involvement Saturday. Obama has said no one on his team engaged in any deal-making in regard to his Senate seat.

Among others who have been publicly sucked into the scandal are U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois.

The longtime congressman and son of the well-known civil rights activist has denied that he authorized any intermediary to try to strike a crooked deal to get him Obama's seat.

A handful of protesters gathered outside Jackson's Chicago office Saturday.

Blagojevich has refused to answer specific media questions related to the scandal, in which federal authorities say he tried to parlay his power to choose Obama's successor into campaign cash and other perks for himself and his wife, Patti.

He says he has done nothing wrong.

A car belonging to the disgraced governor, who has given no sign that he is planning to quit despite escalating calls to do so, was seen outside the office of a well-known Chicago defense attorney Saturday.

The Illinois Legislature is moving to strip away Blagojevich's legal ability to choose a replacement for Obama, who resigned from the Senate after winning the presidency.

Other than his weekly video address, Obama spent much of the day out of the public eye Saturday, emerging only briefly for a workout at the gym.

I agree

I am not going to list the scandals of the Bush Administration, they are too numerous.

If ALL Ramn Emanual did was give names to the IL insane governor, for people that the Obama team would like to see as his replacement, is that a scandal?

See, for the Kool Aid gang, it is ok to kill our soldiers in a pre-emptive war, and kill hundreds of thousands of Iraqis in the process. And the drowning of New Orleans while Bush attended McCain's birthday. And the outing of a CIA Agent directly from the WH. The list goes on and on. And the coup de gras is the total economic collapse of our financial sector.

What planet are the Kool Aid drinkers from?

But yet, as soon as a whiff of (oh please oh please I am frothing, I hate the other side so much I am frothing at the mouth)maybe a scandal, they simply lose it.

Even McCain on This Week ABC stated this is not the time to point fingers. The economy is the worst he has ever seen it.

We are in a world of you know what. And the wingnuts absolutely foam at the mouth about the whiff of Obama doing something illegal.
