Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course, they’re all blaming each other.Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country.Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.
And he is going to “fix” Washington politics for us???
George Ryan is no longer governor; he is in the big house.
Of course he was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is…that’s right, also in the big house.
And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. That’s because he’s fighting being sent to….right again, the big house!
The Land of Lincoln, where former Illinois governors make our license plates (while serving time in prison)!!!!
And for the past five years, Democrats controlled the White House and at least one of the halls of Congress. From 2006 to 2008, Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate. From 2008 to 2010, Democrats controlled the White House and both halls of Congress (the Senate and the House) which means Democrats had the power to do whatever they wanted for blacks, for illegal immigrants and for the poor.
So will someone tell me who is the blame.
