Blog friend Mike Williams sent along the following: ------
Rick Moran has a long posting on “What You Didn't Know About Obama and Rezko” if you have some extra time. Moran’s conclusion:
There is no evidence that in any of his dealings with Rezko that Obama broke any law. The question is one of ethics. And judgment, of course. And truthfulness.*************************
Obama’s relationship with Rezko is much more extensive than he has ever admitted. Their 17-year relationship went beyond “one fundraiser” as Obama claims, and a few social dates with the gals.
Rezko was a patron, a valued supporter, and a business partner. And almost certainly a close friend as well.
The significance of this relationship is that it proves that Barack Obama is not who he claims to be – a new kind of politician who will lead us all to the Promised Land. Obama can lie like any normal politician. He can do favors for his supporters who give him money. He can do business with scam artists like Rezko whose illegal activities authorities are still trying to unravel.
Given what we know already, there doesn’t seem to be a “bottom” to this story yet. And what we find when we get there may yet prove to be Barack Obama’s undoing as a candidate for President of the United States.
Folks, Moran's post is detailed, contains many links and is very well done. I hope you give it a look.
I've never doubted Obama is more like other politicians than a new savior come to bring us change.
In fact, when you think about it, don't most politicians coming on the scene announce they want to bring change and save us?
Usually they're ridiculed.
But in Obama's case, most of MSM took what he said as "gospel" and set out to do "missionary work" converting voters, many of whom didn't need any converting because they already liked Obama for his charm and/or skin color.
I've posted before on Obama's dealings with Rezko in No change in this Obama story.
Stay tuned to the Obama-Rezko story. You can be sure there'll be more to come.
As Moran says, we're not at the bottom of this story.
