Dear Blago -Love Obama: Obama Letters Revealed To Blago!

Dear Rod....
Love, Obama..

We can only imagine. According to Politico, they exist. Seems Judicial Watch has them..Read it and weep....

With the Blagojevich scandal breaking around them last month, aides to Barack Obama said there had been "no contact" between Obama and embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Obama's team deflected requests for any correspondence between the two, saying the president-elect wasn't subject to federal disclosure laws.

Even if he were, an Obama spokeswoman explained, "I don't even know if there's any correspondence to be had."

Now it turns out there at least two such pieces of correspondence to be had – even though neither dealt with the controversy linking Obama and Blagojevich, the governor's attempt to sell Obama's Senate seat.

The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch disclosed the letters Monday, saying it had obtained the documents from Blagojevich's office, which was compelled to release them under Illinois law.


In one – a Dec. 3 letter from Obama to Blagojevich – Obama begins "Dear Rod," and thanks his former political ally for meeting with him the day before during the National Governors Association meeting in Philadelphia.

The meeting was likely their last before Blagojevich's Dec. 9 arrest on an array of sensational public corruption allegations, and the men were photographed shaking hands at the event.

The other letter was sent by Obama's three transition team co-chairs – Valerie Jarrett, John Podesta and Pete Rouse – two weeks after Obama's historic victory in the presidential election, listing contact information for officials handling intergovernmental affairs. Jarrett is the "Senate Candidate 1" in the U.S. attorney complaint against Blagojevich but is accused of no wrongdoing.

It also thanks the governor "for all your efforts on behalf of our nation and for your commitment to working together on the transition and in the new Administration."

I bet.

He is not subject to Federal disclosure laws?? ut oh...Daily Kos?? Move On?? Outrage???...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, thought so.

Judicial Watch:

Includes December 3, 2008, Letter to "Rod" Signed by Obama

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the office of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich through the Freedom of Information Act related to Blagojevich's contacts with President-elect Obama and his transition team. The documents include a December 3, 2008, letter from Barack Obama following his December 2, 2008, meeting with Blagojevich as well as a November 17, 2008, letter signed by Presidential Transition Team co-chairs Valerie Jarrett and John Podesta providing Blagojevich with a list of transition team contacts.

The following are excerpts from the letter signed by President-elect Obama on December 3, 2008, less than one week before authorities arrested Blagojevich for attempting to "sell" Obama's now-vacant Senate seat, among other corruption charges:

* "Thank you for meeting with me on Tuesday in Philadelphia. Vice President-elect Joe Biden and I were pleased with the open discussion."
* "As we discussed, I would appreciate any advice you can provide to me and my team on the biggest roadblocks to states in moving forward in 'getting ready to go' projects started quickly."
* "In addition, I welcome any advice you can provide me and my team on revitalizing and reinvigorating the state-federal partnership. I want to make it a priority of my Administration to work closely with you."
* "I look forward to working with you and hitting the ground running on January 20th."

The November 17, 2008, letter signed by Jarrett and Podesta states:

"On behalf of President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden we want you to know of our strong interest in working with you in the months to come. As you may know we have formed a Presidential Transition Team so that the new Administration will be prepared to confront the extraordinary challenges facing our country. Your leadership and experience will be invaluable in this effort and we hope you will not hesitate to share your insights during this process."

"These documents tend to undermine Obama's claims that he had no contact with Blagojevich and suggest his transition is hiding documents about such contacts," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "Why did President-elect Obama not release this letter? What else is he hiding?

So much, so very much and here we will find out ...one corrupt moron at a time. From little known names as Dr. Eric Whitaker to Rahm and Axelrod, Obama is in this deeeppppp, way too deep and it's a wonderful thing. Oh and I will be glad to say, "We told You so!"
You!

    Keep digging, the more you look the worse it gets. This guy is surrounded by corrupt politicians and he is supposed to be the reformer, change we can believe in. He has had every chance to change the corrupt political crowd he has surrounded himself with. And to date has done nothing but support and enable their crimes. He is a fraud and a criminal, he and many others should be arrested and made to answer for this. What has this country become?

    Barack Hussein Obama has to be the lying sob of the decade. Looks like his lying is catching up on him so maybe he will be kicked out of the White House on his lying ass.

    I am not surprised, I'm actually happy that it is all regurgitating. Making it's way out of that dark bottomless pit where all the crooked politicians hide their trash and finally floating to the surface where it is in plain sight. I see little Blago, he's down there with a swiss army knife cutting the little ropes that keep their lies anchored. When all the ropes are cut, that water will look polluted.

    Shameful, how they read so much into so few words. I've no doubt that Obabama's people spoke with Blago - it's the very basics of politics. I want to see evidence that any of them offer bribes to Blago to appoint someone at Obama's request. Then, and only then, will I see a story worth mentioning.

    I know.."they all do it" when a marxist , er Democrat is involved - but when the GOP does it, it is shocking....You want proof of the Obama connection to Chicago politics..oh my, let me count the six degrees of separation for you. And it goes right back to David Axelrod, Michelle Obama, Daley, jarrett, Ayers, Whitacker..the Illinois Health Planning Board, the Teachers Retirement Services....and yes that is worth mentioning - you think bribes are as naked as Blago made them to be? With a nod or a word it is done. Think of Obama as Tony Soprano, plausible deniability applies...I think it's time for the Rachel timeline of corruption..From Obama to Blago and back again - a sick LOTR's.
