Rendell: Obama bungled Blago response

I just don't understand why the incoming administration is stonewalling instead of answering the questions being asked by everyone; reporters and the public alike. Even Democrats are beginning to think this investigation is taking way too long. JC

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell today criticized Barack Obama for not being more upfront about the Illinois corruption scandal.
Now, he said, the story will continue to dominate the media’s attention. “They have never been in an executive position before,” Rendell said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The rule of thumb is whatever you did, say it and get it over with and make it a one-day story as opposed to a three-day story. Politicians are always misjudging the intelligence of the American people.”
Known for his blunt critiques of fellow Democrats, Rendell did not hold back during the interview.
The public, said Rendell, understands Obama and his aides would have an interest in who fills the Senate seat and some contact with the governor's office — and that Obama should have said as much at the outset.
"Did Rahm Emanuel, who took Rod Blagojevich's seat in Congress, have contact with Rod Blagojevich? Of course he did," Rendell said. "They may have thought he was the craziest S.O.B. in the world. But you still have to have contact with him."

Wanna know what Obama knew and when he knew it?

Read Freddoso's "The Case against Barrack Obama".

It's all there in black and white just exactly how sleazy and without an ethical soul our incoming President truly is.

Truly a perfect example of the "ends justifyng the means".
