Obama's statement about his now convicted friend, Rezko.
"This isn't the Tony Rezko I knew," he said, adding that the charges against Rezko "once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform."
That's not the Rev Wright, I knew.
That's not the Pfleger, I knew.
That's not the Auchi, I once toasted to.
That's not the Ayers, I knew.

The rise and rise of Obama
"The political product" that is Obama. It debunks his image as bring "fresh air" to the political world.
Details Tony Rezko and and Rev. Wright as well an interesting inteview with a woman, Linda Thomas, from his church..."When you are at Trinity, white culture is outside the church, and African-American culture is inside the church."
Also examines his authenticity and elitism with a comment by a U of Chicago law professor who says "there's no us vs them in Obama." Also touched on William Ayers and John McCain's reaction to Ayers.
Kass relates how the machine saw "a horse that could win."
Excellent overview, check it out! It runs about 10 minutes....10 minutes that you won't see in the American media.

Obama bomb dropped
When Tony Rezko held a reception at his home for Iraqi-born billionaire Nadhmi Auchi on April 3, 2004, White House hopeful Barack Obama and his wife were also there, Stuart Levine testified just now at Rezko's trial.
Auchi is the man who provided Rezko a $3.5 million loan that Rezko did not disclose to the court -- resulting in his January arrest.
"Mr. and Mrs. Obama were there, were they not?" Rezko lawyer Joseph Duffy asked.
"Yes, sir," Levine said.
Obama and his aides have said Obama has no recollection of ever meeting Auchi.
Looks like another lie got caught.

(Best Syndication) Barack Obama has a long history of working with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and governors of Illinois, including the current Governor Rod Blagojevich, in doling government funding for housing development in Chicago. His history is hardly a model of success, except for the hundred of millions in profits made by the chosen few slumlords.
Less than a year ago, in the April 26, 2007, Chicago Sun-Times, Fran Spielman reported that Chicago aldermen were accusing the Daley administration "of being asleep at the switch while low-income housing projects developed by the now-indicted Tony Rezko collapsed into disrepair."

More Rezko problems for Barack Obama:
According to Illinois State Board of Elections records, Rezko's businesses, Rezmar Corp. and Rezko Concession, contributed $9,000 to Meeks' campaign funds in 2002. A Rezko employee contributed $5,000 to Meeks that same year, and Ali Ata, Rezko's co-defendant, contributed $2,000, the records show.
