Hannity & Colmes just reported that this image was taken on Dec. 2, exactly one week before Barack Obama said, “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.”
Again, why is Obama lying about this?
Notice Obama’s response to questions about his involvement in the Blagojevich scandal sounded curiously like someone who is being charged with something: A denial of involvement, a quick and superficial expression of dismay at the situation and the obligatory “beyond that I shouldn’t comment because the investigation is ongoing” – or somesuch.
If Obama really is as scot-free as he claims to be, he should have been confident enough to issue a strong, undeniable rebuke of the governor’s abhorrent behavior.
And yet, Obama shiftily issued a weak and stuttering response that smacked of guilt.
Don’t get me wrong. Not for a second do I believe that Obama won’t come out of this mess smelling like a rose (if not the freshest rose). Nonetheless, it seems that he is either guilty of something, or (more likely) extremely afraid of being seen as guilty of something simply because of his (or his surrogates’) connections to Blago.
Is Blago really crazy, as some pundits are speculating? Or, does he know about a skeleton that would rock the world?
