You’re President-elect Obama and you finally have to comment on the whole Illinois Gov Blagojevich issue, what do you – what do, you do? If it were me I would play the race card. You’re only attacking me because I’m black aren’t you?! Aren’t you?! And then I’d storm off.
But alas, it seems the actual President-elect Obama answered it differently and many are not happy with his response. From the Slate.com article, Obama’s response was, “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening.” However, “this seemed to contradict a statement last month by David Axelrod, Obama’s top strategist. ‘I know he’s talked to the governor,’ Axelrod said about the Senate seat, ‘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.” Uh-oh, somebody’s lying here.
