Sounds familiar, now Republicans are crying wolf even after Obama denounced gov.'s acts and ask him to resign.....talk of double standard. Aren't American people tired of their intelligence being insulted by the media?
The newsmedia is in rare form. Some blood in the water, and off they go. Sit back and enjoy folks.
the Governor should follow his Chief of Staffs example and step down too.
The indictment logic is simple enough: if corruption took place, as stated and alleged, the "anonymous" contenders for senator ABSOLUTELY knew what was being solicited. The fact that NONE of these Democrats – NONE OF THEM! – had the integrity to report the solicitations is a staggering commentary on the character of these low-life politicians. One wonders what else these influential people are hiding and not talking about...
THE CROOKED GOVERNOR NEXT.
If this all starts to point to Obama here is the current Whine List:
– it is racism
– it is Rush's fault
– it is racism
– it is Hillary's fault
– it is space aliens
– it is racism
Obama might have forgotten that his cozy partners in the media will turn on him if they smell blood in the water.
And the media should do American people service to stop this kind of reporting.....Aren't they deminishing our newly elected President by (By Americans)trying to link him to ill. gov.
I hope someone with integrity would start reporting news!!!
Let them clean up Illinois. It will be the home of the future President. Can you guys imagine a president that doesn't get along with his home governor or the governor is corrupt and under investigation?
Why dont Obama ask Jessy Jackson Jr. to step down also? Looks racest to me,.... But he wont be held acountable because, well you all know. Just wait and see.
Don't go down alone... cut a deal and burn them all... cause you know if you don't Blago or Rezko will... Tony knows by now his Governor isn't in his pocket anymore... so those years in prison are looking pretty rough...
Roll over and burn them all!
Watch Obama will be the next one under the spot light from this. Chicago Dem. Politics as usual.
Don't these people know the first rule of corruption? I mean don't they teach this in poly-sci 101? You never ask to be bribed. You simply make it convenient, secure, and expedient and see what comes your way.
The thing that cracks me up about the whole situation is Senator Stevens from Alaska found Guilty on 7 felony charges still stayed in senate and ran for Re Election, are you kidding me 7 Felony charges now Im not saying what the IL Gov did was right but he has not been Convicted of anything yet he is still Inoccent until Proven Guilty,Senator Stevens on the other hand was found Guilty but its ok he did not have to step down and was able to run for re election is that fair?
When will this Governor realize that the people of Illinois do not want him anymore?
how long until the birds start to sing?
Nail on the head brother... Nail on the head...
Blago, Rezko, Mrs Blago.... sooner or later someone will spill it all!
I know the guy is innocent until proven guilty, but how do you reconcile the stuff on the wiretaps? He's definitly "got some splaining to do." He seems to have a long history of being irrational and scary.
Good, now when will the Govneror get the hint!!!!
(Yes we can!) will change to (Oh My God!)
Obama has conections to this. This is Chi Town. They are all a big happy family like the mafia.
This whole thing make hitlery look like the ethical choice. I hope they can find obummer's level of involvement.
@bobby...."ask Jesse Jackson Jr. to step down". You need to keep up on the news; Jesse Jackson Jr. has not done anything wrong so why should he be asked to step down? He's just one of many that this crook of a Governor was looking at trying to bribe?
Because BOBBY, there isn't sufficient proof the Jesse Jackson is truly involved. He sent someone to speak on his behalf (smart – wasn't it!). So please stop trying to pull the race card! Do you actually think Obama will risk his presidency for a congressman! Get with the program!
Popcorn anyone??? to go with your entertainment?? boy are we a frustrated lot of humanity!
