Blago: I’m Blacker Than Barack Obama

For some reason our media masters seem to have cleaned up Mr. Blagojevich’s comments about the melanin level in Mr. Obama.

Here is what he actually said in an interview in the current issue of Esquire:

The Notorious Blago

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich has a new dog (Skittles), a new source of income (Elvis impersonations) and — despite an old worry (prison) — a confounding optimism. You have to read this.

"It’s such a cynical business, and most of the people in the business are full of sh*t and phonies, but I was real, man — and am real. This guy, he was catapulted in on hope and change, what we hope the guy is. What the f**k? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter. I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up."

All we can say is that we are so glad that with the ascension of Barack Obama to the Presidency we can finally put the issue of race behind us.

Now we can judge each other by the contents of our character rather than the color of our skin.

(For the record, the entire interview is quite a hoot. That is, until you release how much power this man had.)

    Blagojevich blasts Obama as phonie. Blagojevich describes himself as a poor black forced to live in a 5 room apartment.

    AP: Blagojevich: ‘I’m blacker than Barack Obama’
    By Deanna Bellandi Jan 11 2010

    CHICAGO – Ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he’s “blacker than Barack Obama” and tells Esquire magazine that he was a real person in a political arena dominated by phonies.

    Blagojevich, referring to the president as “this guy,” says Obama was elected based simply on hope.

    “What the (expletive)? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter,” Blagojevich told the magazine…

    “I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived,” Blagojevich said. “I saw it all growing up.”

    Blagojevich is appearing on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” this spring and his trial is expected to start later this year.

    I’m confused??? I thought Bill Clinton was the first black president???

  3. GetBackJack says:

    Black … is not a color anymore. It’s a state of mind. A form of consciousness. A specific paradigm.

    Blago might well be more ‘black’ than Obama, based on how these people associate with the world. Obama clearly thinks he’s God. Why can’t Blago be black if a Kenyan with Islamic inculcation associates that he’s Marxism’ new world-god?

    • Reality Bytes says:

      A black business man once told my old man “Ray, if you could be black just one Saturday night, you’d never want to be white again.”

      Hmmm. Somebody get Ann Coulter on the phone.

    • GetBackJack says:

      Ah, jeez … so many images roll through my fevered brainpan …

      (ps – and he’s wrong. but I get his point)

    I’m really starting to love this guy. This is real entertainment. I can just picture his business card:

    Rod “The King” Blagojevich
    Elvis Recreator
    Canine Obedience Facilitator

    • jobeth says:

      And didn’t he audition for a show or something where he was to be hitched up to a flying rig? Wow, a man of all trades.

      I’m with you…he is real entertainment, but the poor thing has no idea people are laughing AT him and not with him.

      But I forgot…he is a dem and they are known for living in an alternate universe of thought

    Now that he’s out of politics, Blago can be honest.

  6. wirenut says:

    Anyone who looks at elected office as a “business” is unfit to hold it. Blago’s business in office certainly wasn’t that of the people. It’s our business their trusted with, not the politicians. White political hacks that feel the need for more blackness, I may be of some help. Blunt force properly applied by a fist to a eye socket will get results, a “shiner” if you will. One on the snot-locker will get you a twofer.
    Wear’m with pride. Fools.

    Rush, are you going to blend McNabb, Vick, and Romo into the discussion?

    drama king Obama found the business lead to begging, which offset the high he experienced in politics. He also got a “thrill” while performing on the theater at Occidental College and became jealous when he did not get larger parts in skits. Megalomaniac Obama’s obsession with possessiveness to control & own the people in this country. I can see reality tv show in the horizons. Many possessive athletes like OJ became actors in 2nd career.

    The Audacity of Hope Barack Obama 2006
    For the first time in my career, I began to experience the envy of seeing younger politicians succeed where I had failed, moving into higher offices, getting more things done. The pleasures of politics–the adrenaline of debate, the animal warmth of shaking hands and plunging into a crowd–began to pale against the meaner tasks of the job: the begging for money, the long drives home after the banquet had run two hours longer than scheduled, the bad food and stale air and clipped phone conversations with a wife who had stuck by me so far but was pretty fed up with raising our children alone and was beginning to question my priorities.

    …..I began to harbor doubts about the path I had chosen; I began feeling the way I imagine an actor or athlete must feel when after years of waiting tables between auditions or scratching out hits in the minor leagues, he realizes that he’s gone about as far as talent or fortune will take him. The dream will not happen, and he now faces the choice of accepting this fact like a grownup and moving on to more sensible pursuits, or refusing the truth and ending up bitter, quarrelsome, and slightly pathetic.

    DENIAL, ANGER, bargaining, despair–I’m not sure I went through all the stages prescribed by the experts. .———–…”

    I’ve always contended that the Bamster was only black by convenience. He has no understanding of the people whose backs he rode to the Oval Office on only that they would vote for him because of the color of his skin. If any of the minorities who put this fool in office had bothered to look into his past (what little he would reveal. By the way, Ace, when ARE we going to see those transcripts Barry my man?) and actually listen to his words they most likely would have seen the hating honkie underneath that dark makeup. He is an Indonesian oreo to his core.

    Blago probably is correct in asserting he’s blacker than the Bamster. Hell, I probably am.

    “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, having its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    • proreason says:

      “I’ve always contended that the Bamster was only black by convenience.”

      It’s a good point.

      Obamy has experienced NOTHING similar to the experiences of Black people in America. Indeed, he has been carried around on a silk pillow his entire life. He has more in common with European princes than he does any black man.

      All he has done with or about his Aftican heritage is to exploit it.

      His real ingrained heritage is Communism. It was instilled in him from the age of 4 forward in Indonesia, then by Frank Russel in Hawaii, then in undergraduate school, than as a community organizer, then in Harvard, then by Ayers, than by Wright. Along the way, through Russell, Ayers and Wright he picked up his racial hatred for whites..

      Communism / Marxism permeates every pore of his body. Hatred of Whites is a lesser, but still important theme. Then there is pro-Islam / anit-christianity picked up from his Mother, and step-father. The fourth and final factor that shapes his world view is hatred of America, which was instilled at every step of his development.

      This creature is BRIMMING WITH HATRED of every philosophical pillar of the United States…..Freedom, Representative Government, Free Market Economy, Christianity, American Exceptionalism and Western Heritage.

      Future historians are going to look back on the American people with the same shock that the view the German people who let Hitler sieze power. But at least the Germans supported someone who wanted to promote his own country. Our guy wants to destroy our country.

      It is simply unbelievable.

    • jobeth says:

      Pro, reading all the various components of Obalmy’s upbringing and life in your post is pretty telling. To continue along the line of your thoughts…

      Confusion to the max, resulting as is typical, in the resentment and hatred for just about everything that this spoiled rotten boy king has around him is not surprising. A look back in history shows that the indulged have always been poor leaders…and down right destructive.

      I don’t believe he ever had a sane voice in his background that would produce an upstanding responsible individual. And now we as well as the world must endure this angry person’s delutions about himself as well as well as being the target of his confused anger.

      He is totally about destruction. In every way possible. What has he ever done that has resulted in a positive end?

      I am being too nice to him to be truthful. In reality, I think he is pure evil and adopts everything negative to a peaceful and honest world.

      That was a pretty insightful comment from you.

    • proreason says:

      thanks Jobeth

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      What also may be worth noting is that our republic is not immune from electing a psychopath.

      Pro, you put it all right on target.

    I believe Rod been hangin’ wit Horn dog Bill and it shows.

    Leave the drugs alone………and Bubba!!

    Pro, future historians will mark this time as, “The Awakening of the Citizen’s”. Not the slow march to the end of the trench. Have faith in your fellow countrymen. Small battles won, have ended big wars. Libtards will scatter like marbles on a hardwood floor, once the adults have landed.

  12. Rip Cord says:

    It used to be RED, but now its BLACK. The color of Marxism. Did they replace the hammer and cycle with the Boombox and chrome rims yet?
