Politics of Patronage Inevitably Comes Home to Roost

Those in the know, who were predicting the Blagojevic trial to suck Obama in, were not so far off base afterall. 

Remember the President saying that he had no involvement "directly or indirectly" with the pay-to-play scheme of the Illinois governor?  He insisted vehemently that no one in his administration either had any contact with the governor or anyone else of influence wielding power.  Well, not so fast.

Thomas Balanoff, a top SEIU leader, testified today that Obama called him about the Senate seat. 

Oh well, excuse me, should I be shocked that there is gambling going on in the casino?
This whole administration, from top to bottom, are the products of the only game they know: politics of patronage. 

Those who a couple of years ago bothered to find out about the past of every top administration official from Obama down to Valerie Jarrett are not surprised, and those ideologically blinded by their progressivism (like many in the media) don't care.  In other words, keep on moving people, there is nothing to see here.
