Senate leader says Blagojevich wants time at trial
« on: January 28, 2009, 05:24:02 PM »

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. ? The president of the Illinois Senate says Gov. Rod Blagojevich wants to make a closing statement at his impeachment trial.

Sen. John Cullerton told colleagues Wednesday the governor has asked for the time Thursday. Cullerton says Blagojevich isn't asking to testify. That would involve his answering questions from senators.

Blagojevich has refused to take part in the trial so far, spending the time on a media blitz instead. He says Senate impeachment trial rules are unfair and that he's done nothing wrong.

Cullerton, a Democrat like the governor, is recommending the Senate allow Blagojevich to speak. It's a view also supported by the Senate's top Republican, Christine Radogno.

Rod's just like any other politician, he's gotten the "double talk" down to a science. He's "boycotting" the trial, but yet he states in several interviews that he wished that he could take his witnesses in there to testify. He stated that he wished that he was in Springfield so that he could confront his accusers. The only person stopping him from doing that is him. The Senate has his "witnesses" and they have the tapes.

Maybe sometime soon Illinois will have a governor that isn't a crook!

"Maybe sometime soon Illinois will have a governor that isn't a crook!"

Now why would they wanna go and fuck up a time honored tradition?

Blago is the true definition of a fucknut, and he's milking out his last few days doing the talk show circuit.

Even Nixon figure out the simple premise that "If the tapes are legit, ya gotta up and quit"

So instead of doing the honorable thing when one is busted, this fucker goes ahead and appoints a Senator, boycotts his impeachment trial..and goes on the fucking View  :rotf:

It's times like these when I wish we had the Chinese system of punishment for corrupt politicians.

i still maintain that he is innocent until found guilty. this has been handled terribly from the start and the man is being tried through the media and has chosen to respond in kind. i almost dont blame him, even though i dont doubt he is as crooked and as corrupt as they come.

we've only heard what snippets of conversation one side has released and wanted us to hear. to begin with, that is just wrong. if that information is evidence of prosecutable wrong doing, why is it being released to the public for judgment?

i dont know enough, nor care enough to know, but what happens next? do you think they'll pursue charges against the wife??

does anyone else find it hysterical that a bank can try to purchase a jet with tarp money and theyre just unofficially warned that its a no, no or that the potus and veep admit to ordering the torture of others causing the entire world to look down their noses at us and we're likely just going to choose to look forward instead of back, but yet there is a majority who wants to see a man condemned for being nothing much more than a loudmouthed asshole?  :lmao:

This guy is vying with Madoff for my "hero of the moment" slot.  As Governor he would back track on promises that he'd made so often that fuckers started to get him to sign shit, what a slippery fucker  :rotf:

Absolute quality that he stood there and pleaded his little old heart out in front of the State Senate and got a 59 - 0 vote  :wheelchair:
