December 2nd Photo of Barack Obama and Governor Blagojevich Shaking Hands

 

Blagojevich shaking hands with Barack Obama on December 2nd

Blagojevich shaking hands with Barack Obama on December 2nd

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

    Fail. He was clearly referring to having contact about the open Senate seat not the National Governor’s Association meeting where he shook hands with the Governor of his home state.

    Guilt by association is not only a logical fallacy, but the way you’re using it is a fleeting attempt at childish propaganda. You are a self-preserving journalist practicing the ability to tell a lie that rivals the likes of the anti-Obama. Grow yourself up, please.

    It’s not guilt by association. It’s lying about something and then getting caught. That is the only guilt revealed so far.

    “Fail. He was clearly referring to having contact about the open Senate seat”

    Pass. It is clear there are contradictions aplenty…

    “I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.” — David Axelrod
