Obama wanted Valerie Jarrett to have his seat. Nuff said.
The black guy standing next to Black said he was voting for Trump.
Just to establish the issue: he won’t hang himself, or shoot himself in the back of the head, or cause his plane to crash.
I highly doubt that any Democrat, certainly not any in Illinois, is going to be put out now that Blago is with the Republicans.
I was watching it until Fox broke away. I was LOL at times and enjoying it.
Thanks for your fascinating play-by-play but a link would have been nice
If he can just have enough away to get Cook county to report it’s real numbers he’ll be useful. Kidding, calm down. Other than this upsetting the right people I don’t have much of opinion on this guy.
Is it possible that Trump didn’t do this out of personal political calculation, but because he thought it was the right thing to do?
Three witches on Outnumbered clawed Blagojevich up one side and down the other
After the press conference I thought/ hoped they would show a bit of chagrin, humility
Re: Blogo makes moving statement on first day of freedom. Mentions many interesting things AFTER Fox Business cut away.
ransomnote: can you link the video to our thread please. Must See TV with extra POPCORN
to see entire Blago statement go to that website
Fox News cut away and I found the Chicago station that covered it all
At this time their newsreaders are commenting live on the air
Hopefully the website will archive the whole Blago statement
Recommend hearing his entire statement
Dark to Light
That was the most wonderful thing I’ve watched on live TV in a very long time. He got railroaded by the DNC Machine bigly. Yes he was/is flawed,but he got over-sentenced, and maybe lured into making those calls that were recorded and put him in prison. Please watch the whole statement somewhere like I did (www.fox32chicago.com), Fox Business cut away long before B was done speaking. Very great stuff not seen/ heard by many because they cut away to blab.
Not sure I would want his endorsement.
Blago’s reputation is void in virtually every place in America. He was trying to get something for the seat. Not really selling it, but he wanted something for it. Obama wanted it to go to his friend. The current governor, Pritzker was recorded trying to get the seat or give it to his sister. Many of Illinois’ top politicians were recorded but the feds did not release many of their conversations.
Blago ran a foul of the Obama machine. And they sent him away for as long as possible. Don’t expect Blago to be quiet. And don’t expect him to have any usefulness to Trump. Blago is stupid, hard working, a good family man, always in front of a microphone, and despised by all. His wife Patty does everything she can to keep him out of jail. She loves him.

Oh, and Bill Clinton pardoned 193 including bloody terrorists.
