Subject: Would a Shy-town Senator\Pres. Elect. let a two-bit Gov. profit from selling seat?
As a dues paying member of the Chicago Political Machine, what is the
likelihood that Obama would just walk away from his "very valuable thing"
and let some two-bit governor like Blago pocket a million bucks? Answer, not
very. Aside from Obama's
inborn sense of black entitlement there is just no way the guy would simply
give all that money to Blago. So what do you think Rahm was discussing, on
tape, with the good gov.? Simple, he was brokering the deal. I'm sure Obama
was willing to pay a 10% finders fee for the sale. But to just walk away
from it and let Blago have it all? No way. The feds now have all they need
to keep Obama in line for the next four years.

Naturally Blago was well aware of the federal investigations surrounding
him. He had to know that every word he uttered by any electronic means was
being recorded by the feds. Especially in today's world. Hence the song and
dance and false alley's that have been reveled so far. The odds are great
that they have the attempted deal on tape. If so Obama has just been
converted into a bowl of precooked rice. He might as well change his name to
Tom Obama today.

If you had that kind of money you could get a bridge to replace your
missing front teeth.

Right, because after devoting the past several years of his life to
successful effort to be elected to the most powerful position in the
world, naturally, Obama would be eager to piss it all away for a
possible $100K finder's fee. You're an f'ing genius.

That certainly explains why they have Blago on tape cursing Obama for
refusing to make a deal.

This is a whole lot of speculative bs, not backed up by a single shred of
evidence. In fact, the published evidence points to an exactly opposite
scenario. Blago is on tape calling Obamo a mf for not being willing to
deal with him. So what's your point?

I vehemently dislike Obama's proposed policies, but nothing you say here
makes any sense. They have Obama's people on tape REFUSING to deal over
the seat.

It's Chi-town.

And, the Cook County Democratic Committee does run Chicago, but not
Illinois. I don't think Obama has ever held any office (elected or
otherwise) in the City of Chicago. So although he has obvious
affiliations with Chicago politics it's not correct to call him a dues
paying member of the Chicago Political Machine. He never paid any dues in
the Cook County political machine. He just ran for office and got
elected.

Chicago politics is about Block Captains and Ward Bosses. Obama did learn
from them, that's how he got himself elected, by the kind of ground-up
political organization he observed in Chicago (but wasn't actually part
of).

Interesting read, Gary. I really think you have a good sense of how to read
poker players; not so much politicians.

I think the odds that Obama didn't discuss his vacant senate seat with Blago
are exactly the same as Obama sitting in the pews for 20 years and never
hearing Jeremiah Wright make a single racist, anti-American or anti-Semitic
comment.
That is slim and none - and slim just left town.
