Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs calls for Blago to resign

Echoing Chicago Trib, which calls for Blago’s resignation in its lead editorial.

Until he resigns, however, Blagojevich is still the governor. Theoretically he could, even in his last moments, appoint someone to fill Obama’s vacant seat for two years.  But that person would be irredeemably tainted by the governor’s alleged attempts to sell or barter the seat. Blagojevich needs to step aside and let Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn take over.  This moment, though, shouldn’t be all about politicians and laws.  This moment should be about the serially cheated citizens of Illinois, people who pay their taxes and expect honest governance in return. They have to choose better officials.  They have to demand more.  They deserve more.  Right now, though, the state faces a financial crisis, a $2 billion budget shortfall and an abundance of difficult choices of what to fund and what to cut. Illinois needs a governor who can lead through this crisis. Rod Blagojevich is, more than before, the governor who cannot govern.




  1. Why resign when you could appoint your self?

  2. One thing that people haven’t really brought up is Rod Blagojevich is bad but not as bad as the guy in Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has said he wants to nuke Israel.

    Why do I bring this up?

    Well, “the One” has asked Rod Blagojevich to resign, but Rod Blagojevich has refused.

    So, if “the One” can’t get Rod Blagojevich to resign by just talking to him, how is he going to get Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to give up his pursuit of nuclear weapons by just talking to him like he said he was going to do?

    Either “the One” isn’t a persuasive as he claims to be or he really doesn’t want Rod Blagojevich to resign and has let him know that through back channels.
