Emanuel told the New Yorker earlier this year that he and Obama "participated in a small group that met weekly when Rod was running for governor. We basically laid out the general election, Barack and I and these two."He endorsed the Good Governor in 2002 and during the beginning of his presidential run in 2006.
Both men were, of course, excellent friends with convicted Syrian immigrant Tony Rezko.
Rezko raised or contributed over a quarter of a million dollars to Obama during eight years that Obama was running for or holding his state senate and U. S. Senate positions. Moreover, during his 2004 campaign for the U. S. Senate, Obama spoke with now convicted felon, and then Obama fundraiser and finance guy, Rezko, almost daily.Illinois Congressman Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Forrest Claypool and Barack Obama got the Good Governor elected. Which is only fair, as Mayor Daley helped Rahm Emanuel get elected, and everyone knows the Good Governor was Daley's boy.
Barack grew up in the Daley machine.
The Feds are tearing down portions of the Daley machine.
Can Barack get all the necessary paper shredded before the Good Governor sings?
Can the Good Governor avoid a knife in the ribs long enough to finish his song?
This Advent, we watch the story of the three crowned men - the Good Governor, the Man with Sharp Elbows and the One - unfold before our eyes.
Here's a shocker.
Notice in this second link that it is actually a search of the news website: in the lower left-hand corner, there is a link to a story filed on Nov.5
Nov 5, 2008 ... Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama will meet this afternoon in Chicago to discuss filling Obama's seat in the US Senate.
But when you click on the link, the story has mysteriously disappeared.
They scrubbed the site, but not the search engine.
Barack Hussein Obama a LIAR?
News organizations covering up his lies?
I blame George Bush.
And Karl Rove.
Heck, I blame Dick Cheney as well.
