"If you're trying to change minds and influence people it's probably not a good idea to say that virtually all elected Democrats are liars, but what the hell."

More Presidential Trash
LBJ, JEC, WJC, BHO
Obama really, I mean really is Clinton II.
Obama's birth certificate brouhaha reminded me of similar contretemps in 1992. New York Times
reporter Jeff Gerth brought up the issue of the Clinton's
Whitewater problem, and it became a huge distraction. The
Clintons finally commissioned an ostensibly independent report by
a “forensic accounting firm” and Denver lawyer James Lyons, which
report cleared the Clintons. End of debate. Turns out Lyons
was a longtime Clinton friend, and the report was false. Lyons was
nominated by Clinton to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
Recent media reporting - after the SCOTUS predictably declined to
pursue Obama's birth certificate - cited the State of Hawaii' supposed
validation of a document nobody has ever seen.
The real question all along has been, why didn't Obama just
allow the media, or the Senate, or me, to see the vaulted,
original document, and be done with it? At least we'd know
what hospital he was born in. And who delivered him. Segue
to Blago-gate, and these magic words.
... communications between Emanuel and the Blagojevich administration were captured on court-approved wiretaps.
"I didn't do it"
Those wiretaps prove that Rahm Emmanuel presented Gov. Blagojevich with
names of four people Obama would accept to fill his Senate seat. The
question now becomes, why did Obama lie about it, when he could easily
have said, "yes, of course I gave my recommendations to the Gov."? Is
he, like the Clintons. a pathological liar? Or is he, like the
Clintons, hiding something more? He's not even sworn in yet,
but Obama is, if anything, running ahead of the Clinton Scandal
timeline. Kenneth Starr, in the person of Patrick Fitzgerald, already
has a bead on him.
