U.S. should immediately pull out of Chicago!
Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago; 221 killed in Iraq.
Senators Barack Obama & Dick Durbin, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Gov. Rod Blogojevich, House leader Mike Madigan, Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike), Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J. Daley) -- the leadership in Illinois. All Democrats.
Presiding over the combat zone in Chicago.
Of course, they're all blaming each other. (They can't blame Republicans, they're aren't any!!!!)
State pension fund = $44 billion in debt, worst in the country.
Cook County sales tax = 10.25%, highest in country.
Chicago school system = one of the worst in country.
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he's gonna 'fix' Washington politics?
