Beginning of the End?

  • For the first time, Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama has surfaced in the federal [corruption] case against his longtime campaign fund-raiser, Tony Rezko, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

    The Illinois senator isn’t accused of any wrongdoing. And there’s no evidence Obama knew contributions to his 2004 U.S. Senate campaign came from schemes Rezko is accused of orchestrating.

  • Obama is not named in the Dec. 21 court document. But a source familiar with the case confirmed that Obama is the unnamed “political candidate” referred to in a section of the document that accuses Rezko of orchestrating a scheme in which a firm hired to handle state teacher pension investments first had to pay $250,000 in “sham” finder’s fees. From that money, $10,000 was donated to Obama’s successful run for the Senate in the name of a Rezko business associate, according to the court filing and the source.

    Rezko, who was part of Obama’s senatorial finance committee, also is accused of directing “at least one other individual” to donate money to Obama and then reimbursing that individual — in possible violation of federal election law.

Part and parcel of the Chicago Machine as we and others have been saying for months. And even if the rest of the electorate doesn't recognize it, we don't need a sleazy Illinois politician who's in Daley's hip pocket running the country. Besides, Hillary is much more beatable.

Keep up the smart ass comments all you want, but Barrack Obama is your next president. He is not enough liberal for my liking, but is 50 times better than Bush.

The money which he has received from Rezko is nothing compared to the money the Bush family g=has taken over the years.

The question is do we indict him now, or wait for the ,albiet slim, possible chance that he could be elected president. The trail is brazen, how stupid, how brazen.

To the posters that keep saying Obama is a jihadist,provide proof.Last week President Bush was in Saudi Arabia performing a traditional Arabian dance with the Saudi king while both were holding swords. Fifteen of the nineteen September 11th hijackers were Saudis. Yet, we're still supporting the Saudis,why? I now know why the common man is so disrepected by elected representatives,beacuse a vast majority of Americans are apathetic or simply ignorant to what is going on.

Boy, not liberal enough? Any farther left and he is a communist. He was rated as one of the top ten most liberal senators. How did you come to the conclusion he is 50 times better than Bush? Why don't you back up your claim. Know what you are talking about moron before you go spouting off.

Why doesn't anyone talk about the unheard of at the time 35 million bush had to run for president 1 year before he announced he was running. But we can talk about a few hundred thousand Obama got from Rezco. How much money did Bush get from Abrahoff. Abramhoff gave money to republicans, and they just like Obama gave the money back of just gave it to a charity. Speak the truth about all or it sounds very Racist, like calling him OSAMA, or saying he does not talk about his mother, which is also a lie, the media plays up him being Black, just remeber when he was born most of your parents would not have accepted him as being White, Blacks have had to deal with different skin tone since slavery so they are more accepting of mixed heritage.

--Because it wasn't dirty stolen Chicago machine money.

But we can talk about a few hundred thousand Obama got from Rezco.

--Of course, it is dirty stolen Chicago machine money.

The truth is, he is part of the Chicago and Illinois corrupt patronage machine, and takes their dirty stolen money. He is a marxist spouting Castro in waiting, and the only thing protecting him is his race and the combination of fear of the accusations of racism bandied about so easily by those who use it to avoid just criticisms. (Like you are doing here) Why would anyone "accept him as being white"? He isn't, according to...ummm...him. I would think the ultimate authority. I'm happy to hear blacks are more accepting...sounds like a racist generalization to me...but that's typical for your type.

You know, fact is simply this...white candidates are basically unelectable in majority minority districts of any type. The black population of the US is under 15 percent, but Osama...I'm sorry, Obama...that s and b key get mixed up all the time...lets just use middle name to end the confusion...Hussein is considered electable. That pretty much sums up who the real racists are.

This goes all the way back to Prescott Bush Grampa& his unholy alliances w/these Saudi misigynists in the 30s.
This would be the same Prince that is seen walking hand & hand w/GW at the Ranch as they engage in kisses on the Mouth.

Why is it the National media has refused to pick up this corruption. me thinks because Obama is connected to the Daley brothers along with big business. Mr Omama is in South Carolina telling some lies.

I don't give a fuck about the Bush Family as they are ass hole thief's yet so is Mr Obama, My concern is if Obama gets in, Mayor king of corruption (Daley) will also be in the white house.

The Bush crime family's Texas and Florida enterprises makes Richie look like a local hick scam artist.

Daley backed both Democratic candidates and Bush took it all in stride and all the way, twice.

So, whose political corruption machine is more potent?

GUILIANI AND THOMPSON ARE ALSO-RANS, AND WILL EXIT THE RACE SOON.
THEY HAVE YET TO CATCH FIRE, AND LIKELY WON'T. ROMNEY IS A MORMON, AND I DON'T SEE THIS COUNTRY ELECTING ONE OF THOSE TO SUCH AN IMPORTANT OFFICE IN MY LIFETIME, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE AS DANGEROUS AS ELECTING A SCIENTOLOGIST.
McCAIN COULD DO THE JOB, HUCKABEE IS WAY TOO DIVISIVE AND CONSERVATIVE FOR A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE'S TASTES. I SEE IT IN THE END AS A RUN BETWEEN CLINTON AND McCAIN. ALTHOUGH HILLARY IS THE FORERUNNER WITH THE DEMS, SHE SCARES A LOT OF PEOPLE AS WELL.
OBAMA IS LEARNING THAT AMERICA, FOR ALL THE RHETORIC OF BEING A "MELTING POT," SIMPLY WON'T GIVE HIM A CHANCE TO SHOW WHAT HE CAN DO AS THIS RACE CLOSES IN TO A FINISH. ALTHOUGH BORN OF MIXED RACE, FAR TOO MANY WHITES SEE HIM SIMPLY AS A BLACK MAN, AND A SMART ONE, A COMBINATION MOST WHITE MEN FEAR IN A TRULY OPEN AND LEVEL PLAYING FIELD. McCAIN MAY WIND UP BEING THE WINNER IN THE END.
