Post 128 on http://www.hillaryis44.org/?p=648:


Subtract 59 +4 (63) votes from Waffles, switch the total number of delegates from half to full, giving HRC 126 delegates, give Florida full delegates, equalize the lop-sided caca system whereby urban voters got more delegates per voter than their rural counterparts and it's clear HRC creamed him and he wouldn't have reached the 2118-soon-to-be-2246 (or whatever that number is) threshold.

Barry Obama, man, get with the program.

Wait, you think that the fact that Barry received an unsolicited job offer, a sweet heart land deal, and attended a huge fund raiser at Rezko's home, have been debunked?

Umm, sorry cultist, all of those are absolutely true.

vikes555: man, yeah a sweetheart land deal worth $400,000 at the time... he paid $400,000

Umm:

In June 2005, in what Obama now describes as a "boneheaded" mistake, Obama and Rezko's wife bought adjacent properties on Chicago's South Side, closing the deals on the same day. Seven months later, wanting a bigger yard for his $1.65 million house, Obama bought a slice of the Rezko property for $104,500.

So lets just agree that you lied.

"Six months after the Obamas purchased the mansion, the bought a 10 foot strip of the lot, valued at $104,500."

cameroncrazy1984: Hm, I'm sure you can prove with sources that these things happened, rather than just repeating the same sentence over and over.

NO PROBLEM!! THANKS FOR ASKING:

1. They met in 1990. Obama was a student at Harvard Law School and got an unsolicited job offer from Rezko, then a low-income housing developer in Chicago. Obama turned it down.

2. Obama took a job in 1993 with a small Chicago law firm, Davis Miner Barnhill, that represents developers -- primarily not-for-profit groups -- building low-income housing with government funds.

3. One of the firm's not-for-profit clients -- the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corp., co-founded by Obama's then-boss Allison Davis -- was partners with Rezko's company in a 1995 deal to convert an abandoned nursing home at 61st and Drexel into low-income apartments. Altogether, Obama spent 32 hours on the project, according to the firm. Only five hours of that came after Rezko and WPIC became partners, the firm says. The rest of the future senator's time was helping WPIC strike the deal with Rezko. Rezko's company, Rezmar Corp., also partnered with the firm's clients in four later deals -- none of which involved Obama, according to the firm. In each deal, Rezmar "made the decisions for the joint venture," says William Miceli, an attorney with the firm.

4. In 1995, Obama began campaigning for a seat in the Illinois Senate. Among his earliest supporters: Rezko. Two Rezko companies donated a total of $2,000. Obama was elected in 1996 -- representing a district that included 11 of Rezko's 30 low-income housing projects.

5. Rezko's low-income housing empire began crumbling in 2001, when his company stopped making mortgage payments on the old nursing home that had been converted into apartments. The state foreclosed on the building -- which was in Obama's Illinois Senate district.

6. In 2003, Obama announced he was running for the U.S. Senate, and Rezko -- a member of his campaign finance committee -- held a lavish fund-raiser June 27, 2003, at his Wilmette mansion.

7. A few months after Obama became a U.S. senator, he and Rezko's wife, Rita, bought adjacent pieces of property from a doctor in Chicago's Kenwood neighborhood -- a deal that has dogged Obama the last two years. The doctor sold the mansion to Obama for $1.65 million -- $300,000 below the asking price. Rezko's wife paid full price -- $625,000 -- for the adjacent vacant lot. The deals closed in June 2005. Six months later, Obama paid Rezko's wife $104,500 for a strip of her land, so he could have a bigger yard. At the time, it had been widely reported that Tony Rezko was under federal investigation. Questioned later about the timing of the Rezko deal, Obama called it "boneheaded" because people might think the Rezkos had done him a favor.

8. Eight months later -- in October 2006 -- Rezko was indicted on charges he solicited kickbacks from companies seeking state pension business under his friend Gov. Blagojevich. Federal prosecutors maintain that $10,000 from the alleged kickback scheme was donated to Obama's run for the U.S. Senate.
 
2008-06-04 07:26:16 PM
Also,

"Obama's campaign has said the candidate donated to charity about $160,000 in campaign contributions made or raised for him by Rezko, to make up for the special considerations that were made on Rezko's behalf"

Most Clinton supporters making those claims will come around eventually, the few that don't aren't numerous enough to matter.

And thinking about it, the few that don't come around are probably too dumb to remember, in November, how they felt in June.

At cost.

I read this several times.

Obama bought a house 300K below asking price. He bought part of a lot for $104K.



10K in kickbacks was donated to his senatorial campaign fund. Once Obama was made known of this, like funds were donated to charity.

So, exactly what is it Obama did wrong?

I can see what a slimebag Rezko is. As can Bush and other Chicago politicians. But how can you attribute his wrongdoings to anyone else?

Yes, because the very thing that the Hillary "feminists" want to do is to hand the Presidency over to an anti-choicer on the cusp of the imminent death and/or retirement of at least three Supreme Court justices! Yeah! We "feminists" will show you when we get Roe v. Wade overturned! And just to be biatches, we'll also get the 19th amendment revoked! That'll teach 'em!
