How high will it go?

How miniscule is the possibility that Barak Hussein Obama is the only politician to emerge from the Chicago political machine untainted? We have watched Barak Hussein Obama schmooze, lie, manipulate and cruise through the election to become the President-elect. His time in Chicago politics prepared him well!! The fawning media (MOLES) ignored any potential story that could tarnish the reputation of their anointed candidate. Now they are in cover mode as the criminal investigation of Gov. Rod Blagojevich reaches frighteningly close to Barak Hussein Obama.Barak Hussein Obama, President-elect; friend of William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and Bernadine Dorn; won’t release any information on his past, transcripts, papers, writings (except the 2 books, which are scary enough) by himself or his wife. The MOLES refused to investigate any of these things, maybe they were too busy doing all the investigating on Republicans, during the campaign could find themselves bitten on the butt by their journalistic malfeasance. It will be interesting to watch the investigation proceed and see if it spills uphill. Read the entire transcript of the U.S. Attorney’s Criminal Complaint at:

* WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama hasn’t even stepped into office and already a scandal — not of his own making — is threatening to dog him.

Obama isn’t accused of anything. But the fact that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, a fellow Democrat, has been charged with trying to sell Obama’s now-vacant Senate post gives political opponents an opening to criticize him. A slew of questions remain. The investigation is still under way. And the ultimate impact on Obama is far from certain.;_ylt=A9G_Rzka_z9J7NIADQayFz4D

* Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) — Rod Blagojevich has followed in the footsteps of his predecessors: He became the fourth of the past seven governors elected in Illinois to be arrested. Residents blame the sad tradition on a culture of patronage.

“Government in Illinois isn’t about political ideology or helping people,” said Christopher Mooney, who teaches political science at the University of Illinois-Springfield. “It’s about which idiot brother-in-law are you going to get a job on a road crew because he helped you get into office.”;_ylt=A9G_Rzka_z9J7NIADwayFz4D

* ABC News has a law enforcement source telling them that Jesse Jackson, Jr. is “Senate Candidate Five,” the one who was — according to Blagojevich — willing to supply campaign cash in exchange for the Senate seat.;_ylt=A9G_Rzka_z9J7NIAEQayFz4D

* From the complaint:

On December 4, 2008, ROD BLAGOJEVICH spoke to Advisor B and informed Advisor B that he was giving Senate Candidate 5 greater consideration for the Senate seat because, among other reasons, if ROD BLAGOJEVICH ran for re-election Senate Candidate 5 would “raise[] money” for ROD BLAGOJEVICH, although ROD BLAGOJEVICH said he might “get some (money) up front, maybe” from Senate Candidate 5 to insure Senate Candidate 5 kept his promise about raising money for ROD BLAGOJEVICH. (In a recorded conversation on October 31, 2008, ROD BLAGOJEVICH described an earlier approach by an associate of Senate Candidate Five as follows: “We were approached ‘pay to play.’ That, you know, he’d raise me 500 grand. An emissary came. Then the other guy would raise a million, if I made him (Senate Candidate 5) a Senator.”)

* But there are clearly some uncomfortable questions for Obama. Asked Tuesday in Chicago whether he had been in contact with Blagojevich about the job, Obama said, “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”

But Axelrod said on Chicago television Nov. 23 that the two had spoken. Asked if Obama had expressed a preference, Axelrod said he had not, but also said: “I know he’s talked to the governor. And…there are a whole range of names, many of which have surfaced, and he’s, I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.”

On Tuesday, Axelrod said: “I was mistaken when I told an interviewer last month that the president-elect has spoken directly to Gov. Blagojevich about the Senate vacancy. They did not then or at any time discuss the subject.”

From this point forward I will refer to Barack Hussein Obama by his full name. Hey, it’s his idea!!

* WASHINGTON (AP) – President-elect Barack Obama says he will try to “reboot America‘s image” among the world’s Muslims and will follow tradition by using his entire name – Barack Hussein Obama – in his swearing-in ceremony.
