Obama Tosses Another Old ChiTown Buddy Under The Bus

This time, it's Obama's old basketball buddy and Illinois Democratic Senate nominee Alexi Giannoulias who Obama is declining to campaign for in the race for the president's old senate seat:

At the moment, the White House seems open to the idea of losing Obama’s old seat rather than putting the president’s prestige on the line for Giannoulias, the brash and boyish Illinois state treasurer — and onetime Obama basketball buddy — whose campaign has been rocked by the financial meltdown of his family’s bank.

Durbin said Emanuel was sympathetic to his pleas but ultimately noncommittal, telling him that the White House was “considering the race, weighing their options and weighing a decision on what to do.”

Emanuel, a former congressman from Chicago, tried but failed last year to get Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan into the race. Now, he told Durbin, it’s up to Giannoulias to prove his campaign has enough “viability and strength” to warrant Obama’s involvement.

OK, here's the real story - Barack Hussein Obama is not about to get politically involved with convicted financier Tony Rezco's banker, whose family owned Broadway Bank was just closed by the Feds amid what can only be called massive 'irregularities'.

In fact, Obama is fighting right now to avoid being subpoenaed by ex-governor Rod Blagojevich's lawyers in his corruption trial, where the government's chief witness is Rezco and a number of interesting details could come out..about things like conversations Obama or Rahm Emanuel had about a certain senate seat in Illinois, Obama's connections through Rezco with Saddam Hussein's bagman Nahdni Auchi, illegal campaign contributions or how certain substandard housing developments built by Rezco with municipal funds were pushed through. A number of things could come to light once the president is sworn and has to testify under oath.

No, the last thing Obama wants is to be any more involved with his old cronies in Chicago than he already is.

please helps me write more gooder!
