Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago? Body count: In the last 12 months 500 killed (murdered) in Chicago. 221 killed in Afganistan AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US. President: Barack Hussein Obama Senator: Dick Durbin House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. Governor: Pat Quinn House leader: Mike Madigan Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) Mayor: Rahm Emanuel The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. 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 prison. Of course he was replaced by Rob Blajogevitch who is...that's right, also in prison. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned 11 / 21 / 2012. That is because he is fighting being sent to... that's right, prison.
