Barack Obama said he hadn’t had any contact with BlagoGate Governor Rod Blagojevich, but here’s a picture of them shaking hands on December 2nd. It is becoming clear to me that, at the very least, Barack Obama is a self-preserving politician with the ability to tell a lie that rivals the likes of Bill Clinton.
Seems Obama would have been better off to just say he wasn’t involved, instead of saying things that just weren’t true. I’d have a lot more respect for him if he didn’t immediately kick it into the same old slick politician mode. I’d be more apt to believe him as well.
“I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.” — Barack Obama on December 9th
