On another tape just played by prosecutors, Rod Blagojevich is heard talking to John Harris over the phone on Nov. 3, 2008 -- the day before the election.

They are discussing how Barack Obama is sending two representatives -- union leaders Tom Balanoff and Andy Stern -- to visit to talk about Valerie Jarrett.

"Do they think I would just appoint Valerie Jarrett for nothing?" Blagojevich is heard saying of the Obama camp. "Just to make it happen?"

Liberal Supporter: Yet the next spill will somehow be Obama's fault.

Ummm No Libby, the next one won't be Obama's fault any more than this one was Bush's OR Obama's. What WILL be Obama's fault will be his dragging his feet in suspending or changing certain regulations in order to better facilitate the clean up.

See the difference? Bush = pilloried for taking 4 days to decisively act, Obama = loved by you for, well, still not acting yet.

There's a comment out on some blog - and fairly recent - to the effect that BP got really speedy approval of this well under the Obama administration. It could be argued that the department in question was still staffed by leftovers from the Bush days, but there is the question of the generous donations BP gave Mr Obama's campaign.
