The following are public opinions published in the "Your View" section of Southern California's largest daily newspaper, The San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Jan. 6, 2009 - Investigating himself

Loren Kizzia, of West Covina, Ca.
"I heard on the news that Obama's staff has investigated Obama's staff to determine whether Obama's staff had inappropriate contacts with Illinois Gov. Blagojevich and his alleged 'pay to play' scheme. The results of the investigation are that Obama's staff had no inappropriate contacts!Whew! There for a minute, I thought that they might be trying to do a cover up.The funny part is that the news media are treating this whitewash as an actual exoneration of Obama!"

Well Mr. Kizzia, here is what we know for a fact which differs from the propaganda that you are obviously getting from The Fox News Channel. White House Chief of Staff designate Rahm Emanuel talked twice with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and four times with the governor's chief of staff but did not engage in any inappropriate discussions about Obama's vacant Senate seat, a report by Obama's presidential transition staff asserts.

U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald called the Blagojevich arrest the end of a "political corruption crime spree" that included attempts to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-elect President-elect Barack Obama. The existence of FBI recorded wiretaps-- almost all of which remain unheard by the public -- has prompted furious speculation about whether any of them captured discussions between Blagojevich and members of Obama's staff. However transcripts of the recordings confirm what U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald's described during a press conference when he said that the Illinois Governor was frustrated by contacts with some of [Obma's] staff. Fitzgerald quoted a Blagojevich conversation in which the governor said the Senate seat is "a [Fucking] valuable thing. You just don't give it away. ... I've got this thing, and it's [Fucking] golden, but 'they're [Obama's Team] are not willing to give me anything except appreciation. [Fuck] them."

If Loren Kizzia is right about this being a whitewash, then not only is the media in on it, so are the FBI, The U.S. Attorney's Office etc. These are pearls of wisdom from the same Loren Kizzia when he said in another opinion during the 2008 primary.

"Obama is running like a deer! The girl (Clinton) is kicking his rear end and he wants his mommy!" -Loren Kizzia West Covina, Ca.

Well...Mr. Kizzia, the election didn't quite turn out the way you hoped it would, did it? My best advice for you sir is to stop watching The Fox News Channel, Take your meds as perscribed and eventually the paranoia will fade away. Good Luck Sir!
