FUNNY! The changes we have been waiting for are finally coming – Amazingly, the same people who attacked Sarah Palin are now supporting a “politically green” Caroline Kennedy (real co-author of many books with no voting records and no political experience, but with the name recognition of Paris Hilton) and whatever made the former “unqualified” for a VP job makes the latter “fresh” for Senate. The same way, the people who voted out Hillary at the primaries because they were tired of the Clinton dynasty are now applauding Obama’s Clintonite cabinet and the perpetuation of the Kennedy senatorial line at all cost. Also, experience counts, President Elect Obama was considering appointing his old politically inexperienced friend Valerie Jarret as senator of Illinois, but she “removed” herself once the “Bribojevich” scandal erupted and she got a cosy job at the White House instead. And finally, Biden, away from the flood lights, has secured “his” senatorial seat by temporarily putting a faithful “seat warmer” in charge while waiting for his son Beau to take over once he retires from the military.
Talking about changes also brings forward the Obama’s camp dealing with the Bribojevich scandal. Obama needed an internal investigation by “impartial” incoming White House attorney Greg Craig to prove to us that he, himself, did not have any direct contacts with the crook, and that the part of his staff that was interviewed did not have any “inappropriate” contacts with Blago either. So the Messiah was right – no direct contact, just through his staff, right? But what about “inappropriate”? What about the one that evaded investigation? How does Obama’s camp defines “inappropriate”? I quote the AP: “Emanuel had one or two conversations with Blagojevich and four with Harris on the subject of the Senate seat, according to the review. The report said Obama authorized Emanuel to pass on the names of four people he considered to be highly qualified to take over his seat” Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes, Illinois Veterans” Affairs Director Tammy Duckworth, Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and also “The report said that earlier, Emanuel recommended Jarrett for the Senate seat without Obama”s knowledge, and Jarrett later accepted a job as a senior White House adviser and also, later on “Craig revealed his findings into a memo to Obama. The memo was dated Tuesday(Dec 23), but a transition official said an initial copy was given to Obama on Dec. 15. On that day, Obama announced that the report was ready but that he was withholding it from public release for a week at the request of the U.S. attorneys still conducting their investigation.”
What a bunch of crooks – and the report was conveniently released when OBObama was on vacation in Hawaii and Emanuel in a “long planned vacation in Africa”, at the time when a Hollywood photographer “not one of the thousands of paparazzi swarming Hawaii- was strolling the beach by himself, camera in hand, and stumbled upon a beefy shirtless OBObama – and the picture made the news, the web, the searches – and put the report on the sideline. Tell you what guys, your man is a politician to the core, a smart one, a real one. He knows all the tricks of the book and has already applied them on you, the gullible. I decided to rename him Obama the gifted!
Yes he can and yes they can, with or without experience! Should I put pinky filters on to look at the new world of changes coming to D.C?
For the past six months I have only tried to show you that “The gifted” is a real politician, deep pocketed and self serving as his mentors from Illinois. He learned from the best after all! I wish him success in fixing what Bush has never really broken and at mopping after the financial mess and “no strings attached” bail outs congress gave us. I am glad that he is smelling the coffee, awaking to the real life – Afghanistan needs more troops; middle class needs the new administration to continue with the tax breaks implemented by Bush; financial institutions need to be safeguarded against Clinton-like deregulations in the spirit of the failed Republican attempt to do so two years ago; failing companies might/should fail and reorganize or go; no matter how black a potential senator from Illinois could be, a “Bribo” backup stinks; Israel is doing what he claimed there he would do if people were launching rockets at his daughters, etc, etc. “he gifted” is drifting center – Boo Hoo!
