Obama’s not even in office yet, but the crackdown on discussing his scandals and divulging his shady connections continues to pick up speed.
David “astroturf” Axelrod, Obama’s chief media strategist, (http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2008/09/22/obama-hacks-astroturf-campaign-pwnd-by-jawa-report/ was forced to recant a slip of the truth he uttered during an interview concerning the recently arrested Illinois Democrat Governor Rod Blagojevich.
On 23 November 2008, Axelrod appeared on Fox News Chicago and said this:
“I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.”
Blagojevich abused his office by commiting a crapload of illegal acts and ethics violations. Among them: He told the Chicago Tribune that he would give the paper financial help if it agreed to fire some of its editorial writers that were critical of him, and tried to auction off Obama’s Senate seat to the highest bidder. (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-blagojevich-maindec09,0,7734677.story)
And the considerable support he gave Blagojevich?:
“Asked what contact he’d had with the governor’s office about his replacement in the Senate, President-elect Obama today said “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”
Obama denies that he had a political relationship with Blagojevich except for a ‘few statements supporting the governor’s campaign’ , and also denied, in spite of the facts, any involvement in the governor’s 2002 and 2006 race. Press reports from both campaigns quoted Obama’s endorsements and stated that he was Blagojevich’s top advisor. Axelrod and Obama’s ministry of propaganda issued a statement saying he “misspoke”.
Previous denials include the likes of terrorist William Ayers and SDS comrade Mike Klonsky: (http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/06/obama-throws-maoist-hardliner-and.html), and former Fannie Mae chief Franklin Raines: (http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0908/Obama_denies_Raines_ties_accuses_McCain_of_throwing_stones_from_his_seven_glass_houses.html).
There’s a whole pile of cadavers under the Obama bus (http://confederateyankee.mu.nu/archives/267429.php), and the body count keeps rising.
Keep in mind that Obama comes from a corrupt Chicago political base. This is the Hope and Change charlatan who won his first election by arranging to have all opponents kicked off the ballot.
You can expect more of this Chicago-style ‘leadership’ until 2012.
