it’s always someone else’s fault — 14 times and counting.

The guy doesn’t take responsibility for the work of his staff, he doesn’t take responsibility for his choice of a church and pastor, he doesn’t take responsibility for his choice of political associates, and he doesn’t take responsibility for the political deals which put cash in his pocket and his family on millionaire’s row.  Barack Obama — being full of bullshit means never having to say you’re sorry:

In a March 2008 interview with the Chicago Sun-Times
to answer questions about Tony Rezko, Obama was asked about the fact
that Obama had told the newspaper in November 2006 that he had never
been asked to do anything to advance Rezko’s business interests. But
the Sun-Times had subsequently learned about a October 28, 1998 letter
Obama wrote to city and state housing officials on behalf of a housing
project for seniors that Rezko was working on.

The letter, Obama said, “was essentially a form letter of the sort
that I did all time. And that I wasn’t, by the way, aware of.”

A reporter asked: You weren’t aware that he was associated with the project?

Responded Obama: “I wasn’t even aware that we wrote the letter. The
answer that I gave at the time was accurate as far as I knew…This was
one of many form letters, or letters of recommendation we would send
out constantly for all sorts of projects. And my understanding is that
our letter was just one of many. And I wasn’t a decision maker in any
of this process.”

The Sun-Times also pointed out that in November 2006 Obama estimated
that Rezko had raised somewhere between $50,000 and $60,000 for him
during his political career.

But since that answer, Obama has given back almost $160,000 in Rezko-related contributions.

“The original estimate was based on, I asked my staff to find what
monies they attributed to Rezko, and this was the figure given to me,”
Obama said.
