Barack Obama & David Axelrod (Someone's A Liar)

"I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening." - Barack Obama

- When asked what he knew about the situation with Gov. Blagojevich selling his senate seat, and if he had talked to Blagojevich about his successor.

"I know he's (Obama) talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them." - David Axelrod (Obama's Senior Advisor)

- Comment Axelrod made two weeks before Blagojevich was arrested.....Go to the following link to hear him say it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyfEsvqOTrg

**So, who is lying? Is Obama trying to cover his ass, or was Axelrod talking out of his? It's hard to believe Axelrod would have made up this comment two weeks ago, even though he's now saying he "mis-spoke," but it is very easy to believe Obama made up his.......I'm not saying Obama is involved in the scandal (nor am I saying he isn't), but I'm willing to bet he's had at least one conversation with Blagojovich about his former seat. It would only be natural for him to have an interest in helping select who is going to replace him.

That said, Obama is an idiot for not coming out with a statement such as this one: "Yes, I know Gov. Blagojevich and we have discussed my senate seat. I had no idea he was trying to profit from this opening, however, and am disgusted by his actions."

The American people could swallow this statement much better than Obama twisting in the wind, trying to pull off a Bill Clintonesque triangulation of the truth......52% of the electorate voted for him knowing he was buddies with a guy who set off a bomb at the Pentagon. Blagojavich could be passed off as just another 'inconvenient friend,' and most would believe him. He just needs to come clean and throw Blagojavich under the bus.

Unless he has something to hide, that is......Lets not forget a comment from a very prominent Democrat:

"[Barack Obama has the] political instincts of a Chicago thug." - Bill Clinton.**
