Jury selection begins today in the trial of Obama’s good friend, financial “bagman”, and indicted slumlord Antoin “Tony” Rezko. Don’t expect Big Media to broadcast any important trial news to the American voter.
For months Big Media has repeated the catechism that neither Governor Blagojevich of Illinois nor Barack Obama are implicated in the Rezko trial. Now, as the trial begins Big Media is dumping Blagojevich. Writes the Sun Times, Tony Rezko’s upcoming trial could show how a governor who rode into Springfield pledging every ethical reform in the book was, at best, neglectful and, at worst, a fraud.
Obama too, pledged every ethical reform but has been “at best, neglectful and, at worst, a fraud.” It was Obama after all who froze out the African-Americans who helped elect him as State Senator in order to devote himself full time to the notorious fixer/bagman Antoin “Tony” Rezko.
The trial has not yet begun and already an FBI mole has contradicted Obama’s claim to rarely seeing Rezko while at the same time observing envelopes filled with cash switching hands at the Rezko office. The FBI mole noted that Obama and the “fraud” Governor logged frequent visits to Rezko. Big Media has not been stirred to broadcast any of this news to the voting public. Big Blogs have been equally silent.
Big Media has also failed to inform American voters about the Obama/Saddam Hussein connections, the tens of millions Obama helped funnel to Rezko, Michelle Obama’s hospital shenanigans, that suicide that washed up on the shore of Lake Michigan, well, all these boring Obama related “missteps” which by any other politician would spell red ink scandal. Big Media has its priorities.
Big Media is also too busy to focus a broadcast on Obama’s latest “missteps” on NAFTA. Saying one thing in a debate that appeals to Ohio voters while an emissary delivers a different “never mind” message to powerful interests is what Obama is good at. Obama, after saying a meeting never took place, well then maybe it did, well what was said was not what was said, well maybe nothing was said, well maybe it did happen but something else was said or maybe it wasn’t exactly the way it was supposed to be portrayed, well… here is the Associated Press:
The meeting was first reported last week by Canadian television network CTV, which cited unnamed sources as saying that Goolsbee assured the Canadians that Obama’s tough talk on the North American Free Trade Agreement is just campaign rhetoric not to be taken seriously. The Obama campaign and the Canadian embassy denied there was any inconsistency between what the candidate was saying publicly and what advisers were saying privately. [snip]
The memo obtained by the AP was widely distributed within the Canadian government. It is more than 1,300 words and covers many topics that DeMora said were discussed in the Feb. 8 “introductory meeting” between himself, Goolsbee and the consul general in Chicago, Georges Rioux.
Goolsbee “was frank in saying that the primary campaign has been necessarily domestically focused, particularly in the Midwest, and that much of the rhetoric that may be perceived to be protectionist is more reflective of political maneuvering than policy,” the memo’s introduction said. “On NAFTA, Goolsbee suggested that Obama is less about fundamentally changing the agreement and more in favour of strengthening/clarifying language on labour mobility and environment and trying to establish these as more `core’ principles of the agreement.” [snip]
“As Obama continues to court the economic populist vote, particularly in upcoming contests like Ohio, we are likely to see a continuation of some of the messaging that hasn’t played in Canada’s favour, but this should continue to be viewed in the context in which it is delivered,” DeMora wrote in the closing section.
Good thing CTV was on the job – American Big Media is busy with its own priorities – electing its Big Media tool.
Anyway, it’s Monday, let’s have some video fun.
We send this one to Ohio:
