I don't believe it unless the Enquirer released it. They seem to ALWAYS get it right anymore without bias!

Aside from the source being laughable, the title quotes an amount that is twice what the article does.

Aside from that minor misstatement; how much as the current administration and McCain approved for associates? My guess is that this number has probably easily exceeded hundreds of billions of dollars. I wouldn't be surprised if this number is an extremely low ball estimate either.

I'll add that as a native south sider in Chicago I have a pretty decent understanding of not only the reality of the influence of Rezko, but also of the areas that he was invested in. He would be lucky to actually be worth 5 million in net worth and if you guys want to continue to push this issue I think you'll end up being embarrassed when push comes to shove.

You're swallowing crocodiles while choking on gnats.

That reeks of desperation.

But haven't you heard? Obama personally started the Iraq War. That's right! He did it one weekend as a joke--a favor for his oil buddies. Barack was the one who manipulated Bush and Cheney into telling all those lies about weapons of mass destruction.

And then the next week, he had to resolve a poker bet with his buddies so he personally poisoned the birds of China so he could create Bird Flu. That Barry, what a pranskter.
