    The media whores lied or, if you want to go easy on them, didn't check out their sources. Same difference.

    If you're referring to the story I think you are, the news story never stated that the conversations were between Rahm Emanuel and Rod Blagojevich.

    It doesn't matter. The number 21 has been in the news on countless occasions, and that what people will remember. How many times have untruths become the "truth"? Way too many times.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    First of all, your FOX compiled video takes the quotes "21 contacts" out of context so that we don't even know where all these comments originated from (some of them appear to be legitimate guests on the show, not FOX reporters). I have to admit that this reminds me of the way every MSM (i.e. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, except FOX) outlet handled attacks on any conservative stance (and anything Bush said) over the last few years. Sean Hannity would be proud of your work, Dan, as he likes to do similar hatchet jobs.

    Doesn't any thinking individual on this website find the quote below interesting?
    Harris asked if in return for picking Jarrett, "all we get is appreciation, right?" "Right," Emanuel responded.
    If this doesn't look like a set up by someone who suspects they are being recorded than I don't know what else it could be. It would be different if Harris asked for money and Emanuel responded "All you get is appreciation." No, Harris throws out the appreciation thing there right up front as if to put on record (you know, the "secretly" recorded record) that "Lookie here, we ain't passin' no bucks here!"

    Is it just me or is this a set up reminiscent of Abbot and Costello's best stuff?

    Oh, pardon me... Obama investigated his people... how stupid of me to question!
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    Honestly when I read that line I thought the same thing for a moment.

    I'm not making any decision on this either way till some actual legitiamte FACTS start coming out on this case. People on every side of this are laughably jumping and swearing by whatever RUMOR (however you wish to term it, this unofficial speculatory "facts" are nothing but rumors) fits their mind set and condemning any that don't.

    It sounds more like a way of testing the waters for how receptive he'd be to bribery. It's not a good idea to just flat-out ask someone for a bribe if you have no idea what their reaction would be.

    By asking him if "all we get is appreciation" instead of flat-out asking him for a bribe, Harris maintained enough plausible deniability (at least for that conversation) to claim that he meant something other than a bribe. Harris probably didn't realize that ALL of his conversations were being recorded and there was plenty of OTHER evidence to link him to this.

    As for Emanuel, I don't see how that reflects negatively on him at all. He might not have even known what the comment meant, or he might've thought it meant the usual politicking and deal-making as opposed to outright bribery.
