Washington Wire - WSJ.com : Blagojevich’s Big Conference Call and Valerie Jarrett’s Clean BreakHere's a great link from a Wall Street Journal ...............................................
One of the reasons I was for John McCain and Sarah Palin is that neither is a lawyer. You might get a little “straight talk” from them, as McCain’s bumper sticker had it. On the other hand it’s hard to find anyone in Obama Land who is not a lawyer. Most likely the White House chef will be a Doctor of Jurisprudence. Simple, honest answers are not to be found in Obama Land, unfortunately, and a Fortress Mentality has descended upon the staff of the Jan. 20 White House.
Obama doesn’t think it’s appropriate to comment on Blago’s arrest and is “saddened and sobered.” There’s no such thing as direct statement in Obama Land. Obama and people like Axelrod can’t seem to get it right the first time, whether we’re talking about Wright, Ayers, or a conversation they had with Blagojevich. When is a truth a lie? When is a lie the truth? When does a closed book provide the information a Democratic society needs?
Axelrod said the Obamanites had spoken with Blago about a successor to his seat. It took them a week to revise the statement, saying that AxelRod was “mistaken.” During that week, teams of lawyers were assigned to find out just how much they could get away with denying. If a tree falls in the desert…and so forth.
It pretty much sux that we’re going to have four years of equivocating, splitting hairs, sophistry, censoring, and manipulation of both public and media. In too many cases, the liberal media is cooperating in information suppression. Many broadcast reporters on CNN, MSNBC, and the Big Networks are in full court denial about their ?Celebrity Son. Why should things be different now than they were in the general elections where it was considered impolite to use facts about Obama in a news story.
