At the Illinois State Fair in August 2006, Obama spoke on Blagojevich's behalf
"We've got a governor in Rod Blagojevich who has delivered consistently on behalf of the people of Illinois," Obama told the crowd.
Now I'm not going to pile-on Obama because of this Blago fiasco, but Obama is starting to remind me of a guy who blames everyone around him when bad things happen........while failing to see that he's the common denominator.
So far we have:
Never heard 20 years of sermons.
Bought land at a discount, but now regrets it.
I had no idea he was corrupt.
Jesse Jackson Jr.
Obama's Campaign National Co-Chair now involved in the Blago affair.
Just another guy in the neighborhood.
Long-time friend of the Obama's. Had no idea he hated Israel.
Both worked with her at Sidley Austin and it's rumored that she 'mentored' Michelle. Just another gal in the neighborhood.
And he hasn't been sworn-in yet!!
How's that Obama vote working out?
