Just like he could no more break with Trinity Church and Rev. Wright than his own Black Community. Lets start the timer until we hear that song change to Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire.

Sure I believe Obama won't pardon Tony Rezko. I believe him when he said he never heard a Reverend Wright rant. I believe him when he said he really doesn't know Tony Rezko. I believe him when he said that he never had a serious conversation with Bill Ayers about his radical views and actions. I believe him when he said he'll accept public funding for the presidential campaign.

After all, He is the Messiah, and must be taken for His word........could you give me a fill-up.....Grape Kool-Aid is my favorite!

When has Obama ever told the full truth about his best Friends?

Never

that is, until I am safely elected

This is why all the Democrats in Illinois came out for Obama and not Hillary, they want Fitz fired and the Combine pardoned and they just might get it.

Natasha Korecki,

Your post is another fine example of false logic used to make 95% of the republican arguments I have heard.
Obama made that statement in response to Jeremiah Wright's controversial sermon. According to your argument, Obama saying "he could no more break with Trinity Church and Rev. Wright than his own Black Community" means that he can never leave the Church . That he said he will be a member of that Church regardless of what happens at the church post comment? The core logic doesn't make sense and the fact that the republican party uses it so much speaks to the contempt your party has for the American voters.

YOU GUYS NEED TO GET A LIFE, LEARN A HOBBY, JUST DO SOMETHING
POSITIVE, YOU'RE SETTING RACE RELATIONS BACK TWENTY YEARS WITH
ALL OF THIS NEGATIVITY!
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT WHAT DICK CHENEY RECENTLY SAID ABOUT WEST
VIRGINIA?
FINALLY YOU KNOW WHY THE MAN LEFT HIS CHURCH, STOP BEATING A DEAD
HORSE!
IF THIS IS ABOUT HILLARY NOT WINNING, GET OVER IT!

Oh no surprise here the Obamabots are clearly very nervous about the Rezko conviction.

Natasha, just wanted to say you have done a good job covering this Rezko trial. Don't let these moronic Obama groupies bother you for they are living on Fantasy Island.

What's the big deal if he does pardon him? Bill Clinton got to pardon all his co-conspirators.

I sincerely believe that there is reason for Obama to worry about the Rezko connection. After all, Obama had people at the courthouse everyday trying to find out what was going on. Also, someone would not spend $625,000 for a weed filled lot they did not want with money they did not have unless there was a good reason and I don't think friendship is the reason. The investigation is on-going with Rezko and other associates. Also the FBI mole stated that Rezko/Obama met frequently for years.

O'bama is for HOPE, and, UH, CHANGE, Yeah, and UH, THE FUTURE, and THE HOPE IS FOR THE CHANGE, AND THE CHANGE IS THE FUTURE, AND, AND, UH,

O'bama for President.

WHO WOULD EVER BELIEVE THAT I AM SO STUPID AND I GET TO VOTE!

AHHHH, Chicago politics I sure miss it. Whatever happened to that goofy alderman that wore the funny hats, can't remember her name??

Hey people stop being blind and use your brains, It is obvious that they are trying to use this Tony Rezko guy just to bring Obama down, because they have nothing else to say about him, if you read more about this guy you will see that he had raised lots of money for republicans also, and if Obama doesn’t pardon this old friend of his, that will mean no body should be friend with Obama, because obviously this guy has established obama’s political future. You cant just throw your friends that helped you to get where your at today under the bus, I don’t think your grandmother the one you mentioned on TV has raised you like this MR Obama!!!!

If you do not think Rezko has privately been promised an Obama pardon you are an idiot.

What's most disturbing is how Obama is above reproach. It's become almost blasphemy to criticize him in anyway. Kudos to John Stewart for pointing this out in his comedy routine, but he'll probably catch flack for that, just like the rest of us. It's as if Obama has been packaged and sold to us as some kind of diety, when he's nothing more than a junior senator, with a thin resume, who voted present a hundred times at his job.

Obama is smart like a fox he has played the race card to the hilt and made it look like he is the victim and so far it has worked.Now that the presure is on Tony Rezko we will see if he will crack I'am betting he won't because he can do his time and come out of prison a lot richer than he with in with Obama's help.By keeping his mouth shut he stands to reap billions.How much Obama will get out of this remains to be seen but it will be worth it for him and wife.
