Once again Barack Obama's name is connected to a scandal.
Yesterday, the news broke of Obama's friend Gov. Rod Blagojevich's arrest on corruption charges for conspiring to sell Obama's empty Senate seat.
Later that day Obama held a press conference to deny ever discussing his Senate seat with Blagojevich: "I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening."
We know that's a lie because Blagojevich is heard on a federal wiretap calling his old friend a motherf**ker because Obama wanted Blagojevich to appoint Obama's pick, Valerie Jarrett, to the Senate "for nothing".
In this video, watch as Obama's senior advisor David Axelrod, appearing on Fox News on Nov. 23, very clearly states that Obama spoke with Gov. Blagojevich about his senate seat.
Obama's camp is now claiming Axelrod "misspoke" when he said he knew that Obama was in contact with the governor.
If Axelrod misspoke on Fox News back in November, why didn't Obama's camp step up then and say he misspoke?
And if Axelrod "misspoke" back then, does that mean everything he says about Obama in the future should be taken with a grain of salt?
I guess KHQA TV 7 also misspoke about a meeting between Obama and Blagojevich to discuss this very same subject?
I predict that in less than a year Obama and his administration will be the laughing stock of the world.
Unlike a child who lies out of a sense of self-preservation -- Obama lies for the hell of it because he's arrogant enough to believe he can get away with it.
The writing is on the wall, sooner or later Obama's shady associations will catch up with him.
Says political blogger and law professor Hugh Hewitt:
The MSM [mainstream media] issued a huge pass to candidate Obama during the election when it came to Rezko et al. They cannot keep that up through an entire presidency. (Source)
