    Obama: 'Chicago Is an Example of What Makes This Country Great' | The Weekly Standard

    "Chicago is an example of what makes this country great," Obama said. His audience applauded.

    President Obama's proof for his assertion? The donors in the room, who had given to his reelection campaign. "Witness this room,

    I believe him. I absolutely believe that Chicago is an example of what obama wants for the country.

    Not only because it has an outrageous crime rate but because it represents the perfection of political corruption.

    It's also a great vibrant city of industry and art and commerce. Yes, we have more crime because we have more people.

    Here's the point. Obama will carry Illinois. Romney won't carry Massachusetts.

    I can only believe that anyone denigrating Chicago has never been there. It's one of the greatest cities on earth.

    I think their Obama Derangement Syndrome has gotten so bad that they pretty much hate anything associated with him.

    Argula? Hate it.
    Chicago? Hate it.
    Indvidual Mandates we used to support? Hate it!

    He should totally screw with their minds and say, "I think Mitt is a wonderful man, and I'm glad to be running against him instead of a real conservative!"

    Yes indeedy! Chicago is a large, densely populated city and there are pockets of very high crime.

    it's also one of the greatest cities on earth. Some of the best and most diverse arts, culture, architecture, food, recreation and sports on the planet. And for what it's worth, probably 85% of the geography of the city is exceedingly safe.

    The "bad part" is pretty seperate from the "good part," do you know how big Chicago is?

    Demeaning it in FULL because of its gang-bangers, ignoring its greatness otherwise, is illogical and likely partisan in inspiration.
