When Obama first appeared on the nation's radar screen (long AFTER he'd written two autobiographies), I said all you need to know about this guy is he's a Chicago politician. Once again, by using simple common sense, I appear to be prescient. Not my fault. It seems that the budding Sestak scandal is just the tip of the iceberg. It is just part of a pattern of corruption that is common in Chicago. The Denver Post lays it out.
I think there is truly a good chance that Obama will not serve out his first term. It all hinges on the November elections.
WASHINGTON — Not long after news leaked last month that Andrew Romanoff was determined to make a Democratic primary run against Sen. Michael Bennet, Romanoff received an unexpected communication from one of the most powerful men in Washington.
Jim Messina, President Barack Obama's deputy chief of staff and a storied fixer in the White House political shop, suggested a place for Romanoff might be found in the administration and offered specific suggestions, according to several sources who described the communication to The Denver Post...Along with other prominent examples — including an effort to stop New York Gov. David Paterson from seeking re-election — the administration's tactics in the Colorado Senate primary show that Obama is willing to act as pointedly as his Oval Office predecessor, whose political chief, Karl Rove, was famous for the assertive application of White House power to extend the reach of his party.
