Obama, corruption, and Chicago?
First, about Rezko, I've been reading Chicago Tribune, and they talked about Operation Board Games Kickback schemes, and how US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has said "the only two political candidates identified as receiving campaign money from Operation Board Games kickback schemes are Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and the US Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama."
Fitz has made it clear he is going after Obama and Blagojevich, whether you agree or not, who cares, that is what he said.
The first question, do you think Obama will go to jail over this, and do you think if he wins, it will make a difference on whether he goes to jail or not?
Second question, the Chicago Tribune keeps talking about a letter Rezko sent, here's one quote;
"The last thing Sen. Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich needed was that letter written by convicted Illinois influence peddler Tony Rezko promising he’d never rat out his pals."
What letter is that, I keep seeing quotes about the letters sent to Obama and the Gov, but no actual letters?

I think this is another desperate attempt by the mc cain camp to throw everything they can find at obama to see what sticks , the fact is palin is and has been under investigation since before he was the vp pick , i can not understand why McCain would pick someone with no experiences or world knowledge under investigation for fraud. when there are so many other candidates in the party and his campaign seems to be about finding fault with obama and not telling us what he would do different then bush , other them savings what is his plan to fix the economy and hadn't his slogan of change even been taken from obama i feel bad for him i think he is a descent man but he can't even controll his own election team how can he manage the country
palin on the other hand given enough time could be president she just needs to get a more world view learn about the country and the world
i think in 8 years she will do very well . if you look at her history every man who has given her a leg up she has stabbed them in the back
he should have really checked her out first
well i read everything i can on all the candidates and i think that independent guy had a great ideal for the bail out tax those wall street guys on there capital gains or he said sime way make them pay from the bailout themselves. but don't you think this was all planned ?
if you saw the hearing those guys had losses every quarter why did the company keep giving them bonus and then retire with a million dollars a month . i think this is planned and is a redistrbuiton of the wealth in this country and the world.
i am looking for the changes in law that wouldhave been un thinkable with out this crisis and who is benifitting from those changes

A sitting president never goes to jail. Remember Clintion? He was convicted of perjury but he never did jail time. It would have been too embarrassing, I guess. They sent Martha Stewart away without skipping a beat.

Obama is corrupt and he's a fraud. It appears to me he's as big of a liar as Casey Anthony, and he's covering things up about his birth certificate and his citizenship.
I don't believe he's eligible to be running for president, and he's probably better suited for a rectangular cell than the Oval Office.

You should worry about McCain's ties more:
Jim Hensley, Convicted Felon
G. Gordon Liddy, Convicted Felon
Charles Keating, Convicted Felon
Raffaello Follieri, Convicted Felon

Let's look at the facts:
FACT: McCain sacrificed his former model disabled wife, who had 23 surgeries while she waited five years for him to get out of the POW camp, to have an affair with a rich blond women 24 years younger than he was, whom he later married and then called a c*nt on national TV.
FACT: Obama married a smart, professional woman with a modest bosom and is still in love with her and proud of her.
Now who's the more honorable man?

The chances of Obama being this corrupt evil sorcerer that the GOP has made him out to be is about as likely as McCain still being around in the year 2030.

I DON'T KNOW, BUT IF THEY PUT OBAMA IN JAIL.....
" DO YOU THINK HE WILL BE IN A CELL NEXT TO THESE PEOPLE ?"
John McCain's son, Andrew, who is CFO of his mom's beer distributorship, "sat on the boards of Silver State Bank and of its parent, Silver State Bancorp, starting in February but resigned in July citing 'personal reasons.' Andrew McCain also was a member of the bank's audit committee, responsible for oversight of the company's accounting," according to AP.
The failure -- which was caused by "poor-quality loans primarily related to real estate development" -- will cost the FDIC deposit insurance fund between "$450 million [and] $550 million," according to AP. Silver State's motto was "When the casinos treat you poorly, let Silver State treat you like a valued customer," according to its website.
Although AP reports he was adopted by McCain and his first wife, Andrew is following in his father's footsteps. John McCain protected Charles Keating from government regulators because he had arranged a real estate deal for his second wife, Cindy. The failure of Keating's S&L cost taxpayers $3.4 billion. Taxpayers got off relatively cheaply bailing out Andrew's former colleagues.

Not a criminal offense. Obama won't go to jail. WE need to worry about Palin's offence of power. How she had her ex bro-in-law fired. Imagine how much will go to her head if she is elected as vp. Now, that's criminal.
