IL Governor Called Obama "Motherf***er"

The saga of the arrested Illinois Governor continues...

In case you were wondering if Obama offered any incentives to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to appoint his long time friend Valerie Jarrett to the Senate, that would a big, NO. To which Blagojevich replied, "Fuck him."

From Ben Smith:
The tapes reveal a two-term governor who no longer wants his job, badly wants cash and is determined to leverage a financial benefit out of his appointment powers.

He also appears to think little of the president-elect, whom he calls a "motherf***er" at one point.

“F**k him,” Blagjoveich says of Obama during a lengthy call with top aides and his wife recorded on November 10th, “For nothing? F**k him.”

In another section of the complaint, Blagojevich expresses exasperation that Obama and his team aren't willing to offer him an inducement in exchange for appointing an aide, apparently Valerie Jarrett, to the Senate.

Blagojevich "said he knows that the President-elect wants Senate Candidate 1 for the Senate seat but 'they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation. F**k them,'" says the complaint.
Obama has managed at every step to avoid the Chicago politics as usual. Pretty impressive.
