Trump Showing GOP what Going on Offense Looks like, Goes after Obama / Rezko

This is quite the interesting tack Donald Trump is taking with respect to aggressively going after Barack Obama. Trump singlehandedly resurrected the Birther issue to the point that Obama adviser David Plouffe had to deal with it on the Sunday shows. Now, Trump is going after Obama's relationship with Tony Rezko. In addition to schooling the Republicans on how to actually fight, Trump is shining a spotlight on the Rezko relationship right as Blago's retrial is set to begin.

Via International Business Times:
President Obama “never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko,” said Donald Trump on Fox News.

“People should look into that one,” he added.

In 2005, Rezko’s wife bought a lot adjacent to a house Obama purchased for $625,000 and subsequently sold a part of it to Obama. The deal generated much controversy back in Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Trump went on to say that the President of the United States needs to be able to “deal properly” – something he said Obama isn’t able to do because the latter “never did a deal in his life except with Tony Rezko” before assuming the presidential office in January 2009.
The retrial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is scheduled for April 20th. The timing and choice of Trump's attack on the Obama / Rezko relationship is interesting because Rezko's testimony had been eagerly anticipated by many who followed the first trial. Rezko never did testify but highlighting his name at this point should at least add to the discussion of that possibility in the retrial.
