Vrdolyak prison sentence, Fast Eddie sentenced to 10 months

From the Chicago Tribune.

“Former Chicago Ald. Ed Vrdolyak was long known as “Fast Eddie” for his ability to work the angles in city politics and remain clear of criminal probes. He burnished that image last year when a judge spurned prosecution calls for prison and sentenced him instead to probation for a fraud conviction.

But his day of reckoning finally came Friday when Vrdolyak, forced by an appeals court to be sentenced again, was given 10 months in prison — followed by 5 months in a work-release center and an additional 5 months in home confinement. He was also fined $250,000.”

“The legendary dealmaker had thought he had escaped prison time after U.S. District Judge Milton Shadur sentenced him to five years of probation for setting up a $1.5 million kickback on a Gold Coast real estate deal.

But prosecutors objected, and the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ordered that a different judge resentence Vrdolyak, calling Shadur’s punishment a “slap on the wrist” that ignored Vrdolyak’s status as one of Chicago’s most influential insiders and gave too much weight to dozens of letters attesting to his acts of generosity.

On Friday prosecutors again sought about 31/2 years for Vrdolyak. Federal sentencing guidelines called for a minimum sentence of 21/2 years in prison. But U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly said the guidelines were too stiff a punishment for Vrdolyak and imposed the 10-month prison term as well as the additional work release and home confinement.

Monico said Vrdolyak will not appeal the sentence. He was ordered to report to prison Jan. 19.

Vrdolyak had pleaded guilty to steering the sale of a building owned by Rosalind Franklin University to a developer that agreed to secretly pay him a $1.5 million “finders fee.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Niewoehner said prosecutors were pleased Vrdolyak will serve some time in prison.

“The rich and powerful in this city deserve to be treated the same as anyone else,” Niewoehner had told the judge. “And if somebody else was involved in a fraud for $1.5 million … they would be looking at a long time in prison.””

  1. CW – I was hoping that the reference to Fast Eddie had to do with “Fast Eddie Rendell”, the Governor of Pa. That is how Rush describes him.

    PS – I would give anything to know what Condalezza Rice and the Usurper talked about yesterday in the WH. I heard her interview at The National Press Club, and she stood up for the Tea Party.

  2. ms. helga – I recently read an article about Condoleessa Rice and the new book she has written. In the interview she said that she “loves” Obama. Her foreign policy views and his are worlds apart. I always thought she was certainly more conservative than he and more sensible. Why in the world would she express such affection for him? I hate to use the R word, but I think she and Colin Powell both have the same “affliction”. This is further evidence that blacks are overwhelmingly in support of him. There are exceptions of course, like Col. West and others, thankfully.

  3. Army D.A.V. and RMinNC – We’ve been missing you! Glad to see your posts again.

    I can’t help wonder what the alleged attorneys think that the misrepresentation of our Constitution,and outright failure to uphold it is. I’m not even an attorney6 and I know that. There is PLENTY that can be done about Body Odor’s ineligibility, ……….even AFTER THE FACT. Sure these conscripted GOONS would like everybody to believe that there is NOTHING that can be done…………WE WILL SEE! Also I refuse to believe that this is how WE THE PEOPLE feel about it. Where there is a WILL there will BE A WAY.

  7. POLITICAL SLAUGHTER OF LIBERALS is drawing closer! They all think that they are SO DAMNED IMPORTANT. On November 3rd they are going to discover that they aren’t quite as IMPORTANT as their LITTLE warped minds MAKES THEM BELIEVE. Their LITTLE MINDS are incapable of recognising reality. They live in A LITTLE FANTASY WORLD……….

    ………….. HEY SOETORO GOONS…………..WE ARE COMING TO TAKE YOU AWAY! HERE WE COME WITH THE STRAIGHT JACKETS. YOUR NEXT STOP IS THE BOOBY HATCH!

  8. Cabby -AZ & Ms. Helga

    First of all Geert Wilder’s victory is a major step on the path of defeating the Islam plan of taking the west via infiltration.

    Re: Condoleezza Rice & Colin Powel

    I had always the highest respect for them. They have both conducted themselves with profound dignity. That is why it shocked me when Colin Powel chose to endorse Obama. I wonder if Ms. Rice truly loves Obama or is still being the wonderful diplomat she was?

    I can only admire black loyalty to their race. Caucasians need to develop some of that loyalty, too. However, black loyalty has reached a state beyond reason and is slowly becoming sinister and threatening. In part it plays upon white guilt for the practice of slavery over two hundred years ago. This animosity over this issue is held with out knowledge of the true facts about slavery and who the slavers were. (Muslims, among other Africans were active slave traders then and are now.)

    Another non reasonable belief I have discovered among many American blacks is that suffering, struggle and hardship belonged only to black people because of their skin color. They imagine the history of caucasians was a series of Southern gentlemen and ladies dressed in ball gowns. They fail to see that suffering of all people regardless of race existed then and now.

    What is most pathetic of all is that the victim mentality of American black people has been perpetrated upon them by their own black leaders for their own personal gain at the ultimate harm of the people who believed in them.
    Let me name some; The Black Panthers, NAACP President, Acorn, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Revered Wright, Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, and many sitting in Congress.

    From my days as a little girl in Detroit in the ’50’s to today, I was proud to see how far and how well black people have come forward. Thanks to the ruthlessness of Barry and his power stealing group, they set race relations back 25 years. They have deliberately tried to create bigotry and prejudice where bigotry never existed. By pitting black against white, they divided and conquered. Barry is also attempting to do the same with the Hispanics. That is why he has wrongfully sued Arizona and put Sonia Sotomayer into the Supreme Court. Turning citizen against citizen weakens the unity of the nation and forces the control in the government hands.

    In today’s so called “politically correct” atmosphere intelligent and reasonable people are afraid to speak the truth out of fear of the name calling attacks from any one who has no logic to counter the truth. The Muslim practice of forbidding free speech and death threats against any one who dares criticize Islam strangely looks very much like the practice in the White House to attack and denigrate any one who disagrees with any of their very destroy-our-freedom-and-America-policies.

    The very sad truth is that the loyal black followers fail to recognize that they are being used in a similar way as the Muslim suicide bombers. Supporting and helping to keep these thugs in positions is enabling them to destroy America. If America is lost, so are the black people along with the whites whose babies should be “killed” according the president of the Black Panthers.

    Our greatest weapons in this invisible war of ideology are truth and facts. Most Americans are rightfully fearful to use our greatest weapons because of this retaliatory regime and mind set. Just as Geert Wilders stayed the course and won, so must we shout fearlessly against the lies, convolution of truth, snake oil sophistry, and the rest of the taquiya practices being perpetrated upon us in these historical times. The truth shall set you free.

  9. “most influential insiders and gave too much weight to dozens of letters attesting to his acts of generosity.”
    Interesting choice of words:
    If Mob did it, it would be called “protection”.
    Finders Fee=bribe
    Some could call this: influence buying, patronage, payola etc. Looks like Fast Eddie wasn’t quite fast enough this time. All of this is after a long career of same.

    Very good, ARMY D.A.V. someone worked hard to find that little gem. At last someone like Cuomo takes credit for Affirmative Action Housing, requiring “A Chicken in every Pot”, a free home for whoever wants one. I hope this goes viral.

  11. Cabby – AZ @ 9:34 am | Cabby-just so you know Chile is a Catholic country, for whatever reason the miner story is loaded with symbolism. 33 Miners, Jesus age at his crucifixion. The miners stated there was a 34th miner which was God, the rescue happened on the anniversary date of Our Lady of Fatima.
    http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/282076/rescue-chilean-miners-coincides-with-anniversary-fatima-apparition
    MANILA, Philippines (PNA Features) — By sheer coincidence, the historic rescue on Wednesday of 33 Chilean miners trapped more than 600 meters underground for two months in Copiapo, Chile, coincided with the 93rd anniversary of the phenomenal Fatima apparition that shook the Christian world.
    No less than Pope Benedict XVI was overwhelmed with the successful rescue operation when he said said in Spanish that he “continues with hope to entrust to God’s goodness” on the fate of the miners.
    Our Lady of Fatima has called on mankind to pray, pray and pray and practice penance and more penance for the world to attain a genuine and lasting peace.

  12. This video is major Tea Party bashing also major bashing of anyone remotely near Tea Party by extension Republicans.
    NICE TRY: NBC Tries To Link Black Conservative, Veteran And War Hero Allen West To The Outlaws Biker Gang…
    http://idiots4obama.blogspot.com/
    NBC isn’t interested in why democrats want convicted rapists and murderers to vote.
    NBC isn’t interested in the filthy corrupt democrats in congress who are bankrupting America.
    NBC isn’t interested in President Obama’s relationship with the new Black Panther party, Black Liberation Theology or the fraudulent organization ACORN, which commits massive voter fraud in every election.
    NBC isn’t interested in reporting on the 24 American citizens who are murdered by illegal immigrants every single day in this country as Obama does nothing to secure the border or even visit the border because he’s too busy playing golf, partying with celebrities at the White House and giving campaign speeches while intentionally destroying the country.
    NO! NBC is more concerned with attacking Allen West of all people.
    Allen West is brave war hero and a man that Americans desperately need in Washington to straighten out the scumbag politicians who are robbing us blind and weakening our nation.
    NOT ALL BIKERS ARE CRIMINALS…not even bikers who are members of a gang!
    How pathetic and desperate of democrat ‘cheerleaders’ NBC to attack a black republican and U.S Army veteran who is running for senate.
    This is just another bogus attack on the tea party and conservatives by the left wing network NBC.
    There will be a few idiots out there who will actually buy this trash reporting by NBC, but not enough to defeat Allen West. In fact, West should see a jump in his donations…
    Meet the REAL Allen West…

  13. thanks Cabby…as I said yesterday…been out-of-country for a while and glad to be back…but back now and full of steam…let’s roll

    I too would have loved to have know what Rice and obummer chatted about yesterday…I was lead to believe they were “worlds apart”…but maybe not!

    too me…all politicians are “brothers under the skin” and great bed partners…at one time or another.

    lets see what November brings us..it had better be REAL CHANGE or this country is in “hep big trouble”.

    Just saw where obummers EPA closed down the biggest open air coal mining operation in the USA in Logan County, WV yesterday…Birdbrain (obama) doesn’t know that Logan County, WV was strickly DEMOCRAT country, at least until yesterday…

    John Rease the Republican for Senate there is already ahead of Joe Manchin the Democrat by 10 point…I’m giving 10 to one odds against Manchin now…may raise that to 50 to one after yesterday!

    I know the people of West Virgina and they don’t appreciate losing their coal mining jobs because of the idiots at Serria Club think it will impact the wildlife in WV.

    But we all must remember that obummer “promised” a clean coal operation…remember the UMW (Trumpka’s coal mining union) is and was in full support of obummer….I would like to know how Trumpka explains this to his membership! But this has always been a part of Birdbrain’s plan…some people ( Trumpka and his UMW) would follow Birdbrain over the cliff regardless…kinda like Monkey see, Monkey do.

    So, to the Democrat people of West Virginia who voted for the Birdbrain….how do you like your Hopie and Changie stuff now?

    “U.S. attorney: Nothing Americans can do about eligibility
    ‘Fitness of a president is political question for a very good reason’”
    This is what the U.S. Attorney’s would like to say if they were free enough to say so.
    Look we U.S. Attorneys are being held in chains at an undisclosed location with machine guns to our heads. We have to creatively come up with bifurcations of a law in order to justify Obama’s continued usurpation. Many people paid good money to get this guy installed and they want their money’s worth. You think paying off all the co-conspirators was cheap? and their were many who were willing to sell their country and their fellow Americans down the river. We affirmatively are working hard under duress to keep WE THE PEOPLE down, they haven’t figured out yet they have no rights-the reason because “we said so”.

    Excellent essay about this current situation! The modus operandi is very much the same, isn’t it? The battle between truth and error is so real, whether it concerns Maxism, Islam, Black Supremacy, or whatever. You have made some mind-engaging comments.

  19. Hi, Michelle – Yes, I was aware that Chile is predominately Catholic. What I think is so fantastic is the open display of the miners’ faith in God. Do we have that courage here in America? Or, would political correctness rear its ugly head? Also, of note is the way the Chilean president was directly involved during the entire rescue process. Dare we make comparisons with you-know-who and his DEPLORABLE conduct re. the gulf disaster? Chile’s president led them in the singing of their national anthem! Can you imagine BO doing that?
    What a time of national pride! America! America! Wake up – while there is still time!!

  23. In the book, “The Roots Of Obama’s Rage,” author Dinesh D’Souza mentions many excellent and very insightful details about Obama’s
    psychotic, extremely disturbed, unstable, and insane character traits.
    I recommend people read the pages offered here in the chapter, “A Tale Of Three Dreams” because author D’Souza brings up many historical facts about Obama’s unqenchable pathologically psychotic and insane need to conquer & overthrow American citizens exceptional freedoms (for Islam & Sharia Law, Communism/Marxism/Fascism ), that are alarming and that require ALL Americans to rise up and stop Obama’s war on FREE America.

  25. I just read on Atlas shrugs where a “non-commissioned” officer at Fort Hood ORDERED a Pfc to destroy film footage showing the ISLAMIC TERRORIST shooting all those soldiers at Ft. Hood…let’s chat about that a while.

    First, a noncommissioned officer is not an officer, he is only a sergeant. He receives his orders from a much higher power. I do not for one minute think for one moment that a Sgt. gave such an order of his own free will.

    As a retired officer in the Army with over 27 years of service, I think I pretty well know how the system works. Here’s my take on what happened at Ft. Hood.

    The Pvt told his Sgt that he had the shooting on his cell phone camera. The Sgt then goes to his Platoon Leader ( a Lt.) who goes to his Company Commander (a Cpt.) who talks to his Battalion Commander ( a Ltc.) who discusses it with his Brigade Commander ( a full Col. ) who informs the Division/ or Post Commander ( usually a two or three star General) who calls the Pentagon ( normally four star generals/or Robert Gates) asking, “what shall we do about this situation?”.

    The Generals at the Pentagon then gives the order to pass down the line…”tell the Sgt, to order the Pvt to destroy that film”. That was most likely what happened. This is know as “micro-managing”. Believe me, it happened in Vietnam all the time. It continues to happen in the military even more so today with a full blown MUSLIM sitting in the WH.

    There is no circumstances can I think of where a Sgt would give such an order on his own. He had lots of help on this on.

    This should be be investigated to the highest levels and someone/ or lots of someone’s need to be going to Ft. Leavenworth Military Prison, and stay there a long time, for destruction of evidence against this radical known ISLAMIC TERRORIST who killed 13 brave American soldiers and wounded 33. He should get his wished and died for Allah…by hanging. He had been know to be a person to be watched after his lecture to troops (which had the blessing of his higher up officers) only a year before.

    GOD what is happening to our military… I’m so ashamed of our current officer corps of Colonel and above…..of which I once was so proud to have been a part of….I hope there is some un-bias media somewhere that will jump on this exposure with both feet !!!

    I still say “God Bless the Common Soldier” who has to endure a totally corrupt general officer corp and a very embolden enemy out too kill Americans wherever they find them.

    A mission which now seems to be aided and assisted from the highest echelons of our government.

    I hope you take a few ninutes to read this recommended reading: The chapter “A Tale Of Three Dreams” here in the book, “The Roots Of Obama’s Rage.” It has some great insights about Obama’s detachment and his completely ignoring black Americans in the USA, and his not doing anything to help his starving relative(s) in slums in Africa. Instead Obama steals over 23 millions from the USA taxpayers to illegally send our American taxpayer money to the Kenyan government to enforce the conquering of Islam & Sharia Law and abortions in a new Kenyan Constitution. There are more High Crimes & High Treasons that Barry Soetoro Soebarak Obama is daily committing as a true daily serial conman madman in the USA. IMMEDIATELY ARREST & STOP THE DAILY SERIAL CONMAN MADMAN OBAMA NOW!!!

    you are so right on your asessment of obummer and his desire to dismantle ass aspects of our country…lets hope we can put the brakes on his bulls–t in November, if not, open riots may start occurring.

  29. Rice Meets with Obama, Then Defends His Administration’s Approach
    (Drudge Report referenced to article in The Washington Post)

    (excerpt)
    “Rice rolled her eyes at the notion that Obama is a closet Muslim, and she defended him from criticism – led by former vice president Richard B. Cheney – that Obama had weakened the country. “Nothing in this president’s methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America’s interests,” Rice told an audience that included presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett.”

    The above confirms my worst suspicions. Race has a lot to do with Condoleessa Rice’s opinions about Obama. People like she and Colin Powell just could not bring themselves to be critical of a fellow black, regardless. How in the world could she say that Obama is a defender of America’s interests?

    Somehow, I turned the topic from the Madigan Family Maneuverings to Christine O’Donnell’s Senate race in Delaware because the guy I was talking to did a lot of fundraising in New England during the 2008 campaign and I know he “gets” states up there better than I do, having never lived there.
    He told me that Christine O’Donnell is going to get VERY, VERY CLOSE to winning in Delaware but he does not think she will win. But, he emphasized, “It’s going to be scary close for Coons”.
    I then asked him if he thought Scott Brown would win in Massachusetts, and he said, “No, I was surprised. I thought Coakley would win but it would be close”.
    So, I’m thinking Democrats are really very scared of O’Donnell.

    Oh, this is SO true! In the article I read the other day (interview re. her book) she says she is not in the political field anymore and doesn’t want to be. Then, why not just “zip it” and keep her personal feelings to herself?

    She is doing a great deal of harm to the country’s welfare by publicly lauding this Usurper. She is a very gifted, well-educated person who has excelled in several fields and carries some clout with her race and others around the world. It just goes to show that she doesn’t apparently have a clue as to what is really going on concerning the terrible damage BO has done to our country. To tell the truth, it makes me sick and disgusted.

  41. So many ex-Dems in who were campaign activists are now leading the charge to take down the Obama so-called Democratic Party it could make your head spin. If the 18+ million Hillary voters vote Republican which most intend to do, Nov 2 ought to be very interesting.

    Max sees the Democrat Party as a Leftist/Communist Party now and says he will do whatever he can to destroy it.
    This is interesting to me because I haven’t talked to Max in a year and a half, and because he actually makes his living in politics, and has only worked Democrat politics, I assumed he’d return to the fold and keep his mouth shut just to keep food on the table.
    “I still work for Demcorats,” he explained, “but no one who’s on the list”.
    “What list?,” I asked him, already guessing.
    “Those f***ers who stabbed Hillary in the back, like Jan Schakowsky, Rahm Emanuel, Claire McCaskill, all those f***ers. Almost everyone I know from the HRC days are working to destroy all of these people. They’re going to be primaried in 2012 if they survive this upcoming election. They are all going down. People no longer write checks to the party. People want payback for what they did in 2008. It was a big mistake to put Obama in there and do what they did to HRC and us. F*** them”.
    Max is black, and gay, so it’s always fun to hear him rail against Obama. He and I worked the Wisconsin primary together, in what was a doomed and frustrating effort. We were on the ground there the day Michelle Antoinette made her famous “I’m proud of my country for the first time in my adult life” remarks. Max was even more revolted by that than I was.

    Merkel says German multicultural society has failed

    A recent survey showed that more than 30% of Germans believed Germany was “overrun by foreigners”.
    The study – by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank – also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany’s immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for the social benefits. “Anyone who does not immediately speak German”, she said, “is not welcome”.

  43. DANGER, DANGER (lame duck session) This is from an e-mail from Floyd Brown (Impeach Obama):

    ALERT: Barack Obama has just vowed that there is going to be “hand-to-hand combat up here on Capitol Hill” and our self-proclaimed Republican leaders are planning to simply roll-over and play dead.

    Just in case you have not heard the news, Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are gearing up for the mother of all battles against the American people.

    They’ve seen the handwriting on the wall… they know that the American people are about to go to the polls and hand them a massive repudiation of their radical left-wing agenda, and they’re not happy that their servants (meaning you) have the audacity to openly defy their masters (meaning them).

    And they’re refusing to accept defeat. Instead of taking to heart the unmistakable message the American people are sending their way… instead of holding back on their radical agenda… they’re moving, full steam ahead, in the opposite direction.

    Digging in with unprecedented and arrogant defiance, they’ve planned a legislative blitzkrieg during the coming lame-duck session of Congress in order to shove as much of their radical agenda, as humanly possible, down your throat BEFORE the new Congress convenes.
    **********************
    We need to be proactive in warning the incumbent Repubs before the election that we are vigorously resisting any of their efforts to “go along” with the Dems further push to take this country over the edge of the precipice before they leave office. It’s a never ending battle!

    Least brilliant plan I ever heard of. First it’s probably un-American, and if they can push their luck far enough probably unConstitutional. Is it possible for one day in their lives to think like Americans-small minded little fascists though they are. They are just slaughtering the Democrat Party-sooner it’s gone the better. Maybe mission accomplished in this election cycle, but if we have to destroy the remainder in a couple more election cycles so be it. Go Tea Party, Go Republicans.

  46. Michelle , probably unConstitutional ?, how could anything be Constitutional with the signature of an undocumented Indonesian ?.

  47. Proverbs commands “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves”
    on behalf of all the WE THE PEOPLE, who are not in a government position this is for you. The current government is an abomination, it must be voted out of existence. Heed the command of Isiah-“to undo the heavy burden and let the oppressed go free.” WE THE PEOPLE-taxpayers excludes all in the Obama admin and those who suborn and enable his unconstitutional antics.
    Tonight’s gospel at Mass was the widow v/s the the unjust judge. She preyed on his conscience until he ruled for her. WE THE PEOPLE are the widow, the unjust judge is the government.
    It can’t be done! Don’t be ridiculous – what difference can one person make? … “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” (Proverbs 31:8);
    We must pray always. The Pharisee and the publican. The danger of riches. The blind man is restored to sight.
    [1] And he spoke also a parable to them, that we ought always to pray, and not to faint, [2] Saying: There was a judge in a certain city, who feared not God, nor regarded man. [3] And there was a certain widow in that city, and she came to him, saying: Avenge me of my adversary. [4] And he would not for a long time. But afterwards he said within himself: Although I fear not God, nor regard man, [5] Yet because this widow is troublesome to me, I will avenge her, lest continually coming she weary me.
    [3] “Avenge”… That is, do me justice. It is a Hebraism.

  48. ARMY D.A.V. @ 9:41 pm |
    “how could anything be Constitutional with the signature of an undocumented Indonesian ” sorry ARMY D.A.V. you are correct, but they are still allowing him to do the dog and pony show-why I have no idea? He is “acting” the part of potus and doing a lousy job of that too. He plays it way too hammy and cloying. Barf.

  49. Sometimes lamecherry loses me, I got this part. No wonder the Federal Gov’t can’t balance it’s books.
    http://lamecherry.blogspot.com/In the continued exclusives exposing the pay for vote scheme of B. Hussein
    Obama, Tim Johnson and Stephanie Herseth Sandlin running a massive Native Americans vote scheme for Democrats, here comes another one baby…………so I hope the front benchers are going to catch up before Obama, Johnson and Sandlin are indicted on RICO racketeering charges.
    Over a billion and a half for housing alone, along with the entire BIA budget run out of Interior, and Obama signing Indian sovereignty laws…………..hey people wake up as one hears non stop about how much money the Israeli state gets in taxpayer funds, well Indians are by proportion the biggest welfare black hole on the planet.
    The Indians get more money from Sandlin and Obama than most American States!
    This is something which demands criminal investigation as it is corruption of the most treasonous order. It is especially reprehensible in this time when Americans who pay taxes have lost their jobs, their homes, have their families ripped apart and their savings destroyed by B. Hussein Obama and happy supporter Sandlin while Indians are getting a fortune tax free that never has to be paid back.
    That money then goes to Democratic contractors who donate that money back to Democrats.
    That is racketeering and must be stopped in the indictments of the five biggest kingpins in this in Barack Hussein Obama, Al Franken, Tim Johnson, apparently Lisa Murkowski in the fortune she is getting in Alaska from Natives and Stephanie Heresth Sandlin

  50. U.S. Attorney: Nothing Americans Can Do About Eligibility

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=215901

    This has probably been already posted here, but I have just read this article and it is another finger in the eye of good, honest Americans who know that Obama’s eligibility is doubtful indeed. Here we have a team of U.S. attorneys who have argued to the 9th Circuit that “there essentially is nothing the American public can do to determine if Barack Obama is qualified under the U.S. Constitution…..”

    This is, in effect, a rebuttal of the numerous attempts by plaintiffs like Alan Keyes, Drake, Robinson, cases heard by Judge David Carter, who although a former Marine, succumbed to pressure and ruled that the plaintiffs suffered no injury – did not have standing. Ughh…….

    Now we have this group of U.S. attorneys arguing that a possible violation of the Constitution is a POLITICAL ISSUE, not judicial. Then on the other hand, how many times have we heard congressmen pass the buck by saying it is a matter for the courts to decide? Isn’t this maddening?

    Get this: “The attorneys brushed off concerns that a violation of the Constitution was a serious matter and caused any injury to the plaintiffs, saying, “To put it another way, the relief sought by appellants, consisting of a determination by the court of the eligibility of the president to hold office, and, possibly, his removal from office, would have ‘no more directly and tangibly benefitted [them] than … the public at large.”

    I know we have covered many angles here on CW about the eligibility issue over and over again, but, pray tell me, where are We the People going to get any redress of our grievances in any shape or form? The passing the buck MUST STOP! This article has ignited anew the fire of passion!

  51. Cabby AZ…………………………
    To stop all the MORONS from passing the buck we need only TO POLITICALLY WHACK THEM ALONGSIDE THE HEAD WITH A TWO BY FOUR, IN NOVEMBER THEN GIVE AS MANY OF THEM AS POSSIBLE EXTENDED VACATIONS IN LEAVANWORTH. PARTICULARLY PEOPLE LIKE MMMMSSSS. IMPORTANT,DIRTY ,HARRY REID,DICKEY BIRD DURBIN,CHUCKY PIE SCHUMMER,MANURE SPREADER BIDEN, CHRIST SAKES,DODD,ETC. THEN IN 2012 WE GO “HAIL TO THE CHIEF” (HOPEFULLY THE SIZE OF BASEBALLS).

    Snatching Defeat out of the Jaws of Victory. Many, Many Soldiers gave up so much to give the people of Iraq a chance at freedom, and Obama did so little to help them keep it.
