So now pronouns are not good enough?
Does he now use free agent nouns?
How about amateur nouns.
I personally prefer semi pro nouns when I am not on "official business but insist on pronouns in business dealings.
I only use the free agent nouns at parties when performance enhanced nouns may benefit me in conversations where my senses may be dulled somewhat by alcoh......err I mean dip.

On a more serious note, the FBI is said to have hundreds of hours of wiretaps si if Obama was involved then it'll come out.
From what I have heard the Gov. didn't have anything good to say about Obama which may indicate that Obama may have been left out of the loop but his staff may have known about the senate seat offering. Whether or not that information was passed onto Obama is not known nor do I believe will ever be known.
There was mention of a TV station report that Obama and the Governor had a scheduled meeting to discuss the vacant senate seat sometime in early November but I don't recall offhand what station that report came from. I'll look into it and post back.

As this is playing out, I think the disturbing part is watching the press. The same media that dug so deeply into Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin, who tugged so thoroughly on every thread possible with Bush and Cheney...is content to have Obama tell them there's nothing to see here.

First Obama said there was no contact, and now it's coming out that Rahm Emmanuel did in fact discuss the Senate seat with Blago and is likely on the wiretaps. If that's not enough, apparently Blago's wife handled the shady real estate deal between Obama and Rezko.

And yet themedia's response has been relatively tepid; they're not digging, not demanding answers, etc. Obama simply tells them that he's done his own investigation and found nothing wrong, and they say OK. Move along...nothing to see here. If he were a Republican they'd be all over it.

I've said it before -- the politics don't concern me as much as the sense that he's not to be questioned.
