The Rezko Bomb

  • Once Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton uttered the name "Rezko" at a Democratic presidential debate last Monday, she moved to center stage and shined a spotlight on Tony Rezko, facing a Feb. 25 trial on federal corruption charges. Sen. Barack Obama's long relationship with Rezko is a major political problem for him in the primary, and in the general election if he wins the nomination.

    Until the debate, Rezko's complicated ties with Obama mainly were contained in the pages of the Chicago Sun-Times and the Chicago Tribune, with the national press only occasionally visiting the story of a career patron of Obama who raised money for his state and U.S. Senate campaigns.

Once Hillary brought this up, someone leaked a photo of her and Bill standing with Rezko at some 1996 fundraiser. So the missiles flew both ways.

It remains to be seen how in depth the national press is willing to go to see where Rezko raised money, who he funneled it to and what ties Obama has to the Chicago Machine. Hillary has her own fund raising problems with Hu in California and an entire laundry list of contributors tied into China.

Obama's South Carolina trouncing of Hillary was too soon after the Rezko allegations surfaced to see if they stick and weigh down Obama going into Super Tuesday. There are eight days until that primary and that should cut the field down to two when Edwards drops out. How long the rest of the bloodletting goes on, who knows?

Was watching 10 o'clock news yesterday, they had about 10 minutes of kissing Obamas ass as if he were the second coming, then 30 seconds about the republican primaries. Makes me sick.

Clinton will do anything to try to destroy Obama! when billy clinton was president he was told by the defense dept. not to allow russia to receive the ibm super computer technology, old bill being paid off as usual then gave the task over to the commerce dept headed by bills friend ron brown (now decesaed in a strage plane crash). now with that tech russia has developed a huge new set of bombs with triple warheads that can evade any radar. then russia gave this tech to china which is on a massive military build up campaign! thanks bill for helping ruin Amerca even more, hey pal thanks for nafta also. God bless us if hillary gets in we will be worse off than we ever have been. as far as rezko he is another goof who the clintons will use to get to obama, many strange things happen will the clintons what will they try next? more lies and issues?

This is from Obama's church's website:

THE BLACK VALUE SYSTEM

Trinity United Church of Christ adopted the Black Value System, written by the Manford Byrd Recognition Committee, chaired by the late Vallmer Jordan in 1981.

Dr. Manford Byrd, our brother in Christ, withstood the ravage of being denied his earned ascension to the number one position in the Chicago School System. His dedication to the pursuit of excellence, despite systematic denials, has inspired the congregation of Trinity United Church of Christ. Prayerfully, we have called upon the wisdom of all past generations of suffering Blacks for guidance in fashioning an instrument of Black self-determination, the Black Value System.

Beginning in 1982, an annual Black Value System – Educational Scholarship in the name of Dr. Byrd was instituted. The first recipient of the Dr. Manford Byrd Award, which is given annually to the man or woman who best exemplifies the Black Value System, was our brother, Dr. Manford Byrd.

These Black Ethics must be taught and exemplified in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Blacks are gathered. They consist of the following concepts:

What gets me about all this presidential posturing by these candidates are the programs they propose that will benefit everyone who isn't going to pay a dime for them. Thats really tough to digest when you hear about the astronomical amounts of money these guys are dropping (Romney -40Million of his own money) to get themselves elected. I wish the hell someone like Warren Buffet or Bill Gates were running. At least they're taking their own money and doing something with it that these other phoney bastards are expecting us to pay for.

I was wondering when Hillary Clinton would play the Rezko card, who by the way had his bond revoked and was taken into custody today. I wonder when and if the national media will ever investigate this. That being said, and I hate to say it because I am a Republican but now it looks like 2008 will be a Democratic year. (I hope I am wrong) If that is the case, Obama is the lesser of two evils.

I find it odd that Obama was endorsed by the Kennedy's.

Seems that as I remember anyway that B Clinton snubbed the old established Democratic party, by ignoring them.

Hence, a hatred for the Clintons. My money is that we shall see Obama and Romney in the general election. McCain? Dont think america will elect someone that old.

I really dont look at Bush as a Republican just more of a Democrat in Republicans clothing. The Democratic Party is the Party of War. Consider- WWII, Korea, Viet Nam all had Democrats in the Oval Office.

Bill Clinton is a rapist sex offender, Hillary Clinton is satan. neither can hurt Obama with Rezko, he only worked for groups with ties to soon to be jailbird Rezko. Bill and Hillary are closet "white supremists", Bill's unprovoked attack on sister soulja, fairy tale that lyndon johnson was the leader of the civil rights movement and another fairy tale that bill can dance, ha.

You sir are uneducated. During the Clinton Gore years the economy surged yes? Well that was left overs from Reagan and Bush Sr. Then the economy fell flat on its face near the end of the Clinton Reign of Terror. Policies take time to go into effect, they are not over night like most uneducated mopes think. the Democrats are poised to take more of our Constitutional rights away, for example smoking ban it should be a right, we are the land of the free the home of the brave so if you want a non smoking establishment open one, or switch yours over. Who are they to impose the law of such on citizens? Firearm ownership, everyone should have one (minus convicted felons and what not) it has been proven that the right to carry deters violent crime. We live in a State that is broke, a city that is poor and a County that will take years to rebuild, amazingly all run by Democrats. We have a corrupt political machine in this city from the mayor to the aldercreatures, all Democrats. Name one thing a Democrat has done that is good. Please, just one thing . All I have seen is a bloated government on a state, county and municipal level. I have seen the poor getting more while the working get less. Keep on voting democratic asshat.

Now that Rezko is in jail, Obama must be very nervous.

Maybe Rezko will talk about how Obama got his house for 300K under the asking price and Rezko's wife picked up the adjacent vacant lot the same day from the same buyer for the asking price. Rezko's wife then sold a portion of that lot to Obama and dumped the rest.

Coincidence?

Rezko's trump card.

I am the poster who said that compared to Hillary Clinton Obama is the lesser of two evils. No I am not a fan of Richard Daley. Eugene Sawyer and Harold Washington treated us better and with more respect. Daley has ruined this city and is trying to destroy this police department. I understand the concept that all politics is local, but there is a big world out there besides this city, county and state. The Clintons are bad people, pure and simple, and Hillary is worse than Bill. Obama is no prize either, but on a national level he will be easier to beat than Clinton, and that is more important. If the Democrats win, which unfortunately I think they will, Patrick Fitzgerald will be out of here. With his brains and expertise on terrorism I am surprized he is still here. I am no fan of Daley, Clinton or Obama, but look at the big picture, and vote Republican in the fall.

You're worried about big bad Cuba? You better start worrying about China. Their navy is growing and they are flexing their muscles in the Pacific and Indian oceans. As far as Cuba is concerned its all BS. Let's see how many Cuban "exiles" return to Cuba when Fidel dies.
