Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” —Ronald Reagan

In children’s folklore, the story of Pinocchio and Ghepetto the wood carver that made toys, is a story with a message for young children. Do not lie or your nose will grow and everyone will know you are a liar!

Well, we have our own Pinocchio in Barrack Hussein Obama with his stumbling explanation yesterday morning, that he or none of his cabinet level appointees had any contact with the Gov. of Illinois regarding his soon to be vacated U.S.Senate seat.
Even if you give Obama the benefit of the doubt, it begs credibility to believe that an incoming President has no concern about who will fill his seat in the Senate. Friend or foe makes no difference? Well, if you believe that! I have bridge between San Francisco and Oakland I would like to sell you!

To begin with Obama raised money and campaigned for Blagojevich in his successful run for Governor in 2002. Now he wants the American public to believe that he suddenly went into a cacoon of disinterest about who the Governor would appoint to fill his seat in the Senate. And “Blago” was the first Governor to endorse Obama when he announced he was acandidate for President!

Even in Obama’s explanation of the “two different brands of politics” in America yesterday morning at his press conference he made the oddest assertion that Chicago style corruption was endemic in “state assemblies” and “city councils” across the nation.So this makes it acceptable?

Come now……isn’t this the same type of horrid corruption that Nancyrexia, Harry Dirtdog, Rahm Ratfinger and the ilk were supposed to eliminate? Where is the CHANGE we can all believe in?
Didn’t they say they needed a new government that was responsive to the people, transparent…one that would restore honor to DC? Respect in the world??? (and **gasp***our children??)

I guess the bottom line is, say anything to get in power………..

Even the Los Angeles Times, that was one of the first Newspapers to endorse Obama for President, had this to say: “It took three tries in as many days for President-elect Barack Obama to roll out a strategy for defusing the crisis over Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich’s alleged attempt to put his old Senate seat up for sale.” More: “Obama’s evolving response was the first test of his team’s capacity to cope with a fast-moving political scandal while staying true to his promise to run a transparent shop with a minimum of secrets.”

What is next?
