Chicago Politics

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.

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.
I think there is truly a good chance that Obama will not serve out his first term. It all hinges on the November elections.

One can only hope. The real nightmare here is not that Hussein Obama is so bad, but that the electorate was stupid enuff to elect him. Maybe the 40 million on food coupons tip the scale...Maybe those citizens on the dole should not be allowed to vote themselves more and more and more and more of our largess???

I don't know. It seems to me, Republicans learned something from their impeachment of Clinton. That is, not to try it again.

Hussein would have to be caught red-handed selling a nuclear bomb to Osama or something.

Which isn't to say he hasn't already done that in secret.

We failed to eject Clinton from office because 10 RINOs in the Senate voted against it. Hopefully, some of these people will be ejected in November. Benedict Arlen already has.

This time, the future of America is at stake. I would hope that even if we can't get rid of all the Rinos, that even they would understand the gravity of the situation.

There was a time when I thought, "Better a RINO than a Democrat."

That is no longer the case.

RINOs are nothing more than Democrats in sheeps' clothing. They use their wool to pull over peoples' eyes.
