In an apparent effort to prove that the Clintons are as scummy [tongue-in-cheek] as Obama, right-wing Clinton hater Matt Lauer confronted Hillary Clinton with one of the stock presidential photos of the Clintons and Tony Rezko, on this morning's Today Show. (Scroll down for the video.) You remember Tony Rezko, Sen. Obama's recently indicted 'political patron.'*
Some are wondering if the Obama campaign is behind the sudden appearance of the mysterious undated photo. And is a photo supposed to be the equivalent of Obama's 17 year relationship with slumlord Rezko?
At any rate, Tony Rezko has never contributed a dime to Hillary or Bill Clinton. Obama sorely wishes he could say the same.
Just this morning, Obama did say: "The facts are this: [Rezko] is somebody who was active in politics in Illinois, who I knew. Nobody had any indications that he was engaging in wrongdoing."
Um, nice try, I guess. Actually, at the time Obama got his great and wonderful deal on a house, compliments of the slumlord, freakin' everybody knew about Rezko.
SusanUnPC over at No Quarter says "this video is a must-watch, even though Brian Ross filed the story before the Sun-Times’s revelation that Obama is the “unnamed political candidate” in the Rezko indictment."
*"As a state senator, Barack Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko's successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens." [Chicago Sun Times, 6/13/07]
