0000018fRemember all the promises of “change”? Well, if this is the change a majority of Americans were seeking, we’re in trouble. Bush has made mistakes, a lot of them, but scandals and shady deals seem to follow this Obama crowd everywhere. Read all about Hillary’s Pay-to-Play troubles here on Obamanoms.

Remember the big scandals in 2000 with Bush appointees–Linda Chavez had employeed an illegal alien as her maid and–cover your children’s eyes to protect them from reading this one–John Ashcroft was a Christian! Oh how the liberals screamed and cried and condemned the President for choosing such threats to society. They probably believed we’d have been better off if Satan himself resided in the White House.

All of you who bought into Obama’s promise of “change” can be happy though. Things are changing. We’re going to have a White House operating under Chicago style politics for the next four years.

Focus of Richardson Probe Gave Obama $30,000


Digg!
#TCOT #diggcons

Oh this just keeps getting better all the time.  No wonder Obama’s been so quiet since the Democratic Illinois Governor Rod “The Senate Seat Salesman” Blagojevich’s world began to crumble.  The corruption that keeps rearing its ugly head in Democratic circles is getting so close it may just be crushing his chest.

Today we find out the same guy at the center of Democratic Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson’s “pay-to-play” scandal lined Obama’s campaign pockets to the tune of $30,000.

What was that we heard throughout the campaign?  Something along the lines of “we did all this with $5 contributions from the common folk.”  Lies, lies, lies, and more lies.  $30K is more than Bob the UAW worker’s change from his morning coffee, a lot more.  Apparently Obama’s campaign was financed no differently than any other, with big money from influential donors.

Oh he has a website and I’m sure he collected a few bucks through it from the average Joe, but now we know he took a lot of money in through rubbing elbows with the elitist powerbrokers he claimed to despise.

In late September, Rubin attended an exclusive Los Angeles fundraiser for Obama, held at the Beverly Hills’ Greystone Mansion. Attendees gave tens of thousands of dollars which the campaign split between its own coffers, the Democratic National Committee and state-level campaign groups supporting Obama and Democratic candidates. The technique helps campaigns take in from individuals far more than the $2,300 maximum they are allowed to give to a single campaign fund.

B-b-b-but…didn’t he tell us he wanted to get that money out of politics?

Two scandal ridden Democratic governors with close ties to the bringer of Hope and Change and the unscrupulous actions of Democratic operators in stealing the Senate seat in MN are making this transition more and more interesting. Obama hasn’t been burned, but he appears closer to the fire with this latest development.

Our next president just might be bringing Chicago-style politics to DC. How’s that for change?

Trouble in Obamatopia!

#TCOT #diggcons

Last month, President-elect Barack Hussein Obama’s old friend, old buddy, old pal Rod Blagojevich (Democratic Governor of Illinois) became a speed bump in what was appearing to be an extremely smooth transition when the FBI arrested him for attempting to sell Obama’s vacated Senate seat.

Obama’s transition team quickly (but waited until 2 days before Christmas to release the report to minimze public scrutiny) investigated itself and (not surpisingly) found no wrongdoing on the part of the Democratic President-elect or his closest advisors.  That report raised more questions than it answered, but timing of the scandal has helped Obama avoid taking too big a bath in his pal’s troubles.

Today, his appointee for Secretary of Commerce, Bill Richardson, has withdrawn his name for the position due tohttp://michellemalkin.com/2008/12/16/bill-richardsons-own-pay-to-play-scandal/ worries.  In true Obamesque fashion, Richardson denies any wrongdoing related to the FBI investigation of a contractor who secured $1.4 million in state business after contributing to the New Mexico governor’s political action committees.

In spite of the President-elect’s attempts of late to avoid drawing attention to himself during the escalating tensions in the Middle East, he’s starting to feel the heat and gravity of the office to which he was elected.

He talked a good talk in the campaign, but his recent irritation over all the attention he’s receiving makes one wonder if he’ll be able to handle the pressures and walk the walk.
