I think Obama is genuinely culpable in this matter. As soon as the conspiracy connections are linked we should prosecute Bush just because.

What exactly do you mean by "involvement?"

If you mean he is "involved" because he was the Senator who's seat is the subject of the Governor's misdeeds, I don't think he is denying that.

If you mean he is "involved" because he has had social and party political interfaces with the Governor, I don't think he is denying that.

If by his admitted "involvement" above, you are implying he was a partner in the Governor's activities involving using Obama's seat to improve his personal situation, I think you are hoping a little too much and not breathing enough. It is making you sound a little delirious that "hope is on the way" to mire Obama in the typical political sludge of American politics so we don't really make any progress in the next four years.

Why do you hate America so much that you would hope for America to fail?

Well now, it's hard to argue that logic. But if you notice, it's not the "drive-bys" that are trying to fabricate links.

If Obama did nothing, how do you suggest he address it other than deny it and offer the opinion that Blago should resign?

You are such an idiot I hate to even reply to that crap, but to clarify: it seems possible/plausible that, at the very least, someone on Obama's staff (someone who talks to Obama on a regular/frequent basis) had knowledge of, perhaps even involvement in, Hot Rod's hopes and plans. Just one example, of dozens (and perhaps over 100), people close to Obama is Rahm Israel Emanuel, WH Chief of Staff to PE Obama. If memory serves, Emanuel is from Illinois and he took over Hot Rod's Congressional seat when Hot Rod became governor. Those two are very close personally and politically, and Obama has been involved closely w/ both. These guys all grew up politically together in that corrupt cesspool called Chicago. Frankly, it is hard to believe that there wasn't knowledge of, if not "involvement" in Hot Rod's dealings. There are probably dozens of others in Obama's inner circle that have similar connections, but I chose not to believe that any of them did anything wrong--at least for now.

FWIW, I want Obama to succeed! I'm on his (our) side, and wish this thing would just go away. But I'm not that stupid! You, on the other hand...

Come on bear! The media created him, and now they see it as fair game to destroy him! That's just the way they are nowadays, and you know it.

Good one! I didn't even think of that... But it is kind of ironic!
