    I posted this yesterday as I thought it was an important election story considering one of our presidential nominees has had something to do with the City of Chicago over the past 20 years.

    My thread was promptly moved to the taunting section by one of our esteemed moderators.

    Sigh.

    David,

    You are right. Obama has absolutely no responsibility for what goes on in the city where he has spent the last 20 years of his life, most of it as an elected State Representative and U.S. Senator.

    Of course if there were a similar story about Phoenix or Anchorage...

    Sigh.

    "Had something to do with the city of Chicago over the past 20 years."

    Chicago's population is almost 3 million. Is he responsible for everybody's actions there?

    Let me guess, he was friends with Mayor Dailey, so that automatically makes him responsible for all of the crime in Chicago. Or, Barack Obama, somehow magically telepathically is making people be violent, right?

    COME ON! This is the biggest stretch I've ever heard of. One person among 3 million and because he lived in Chicago, he's autoamtically at fault.

    Like I said Obama bears absolutely no responsibility for what goes on in the city he has lived in and represented for the past 20 years. It is silly to say that any single man could transform one city in 20 years.

    On the other hand apparently Obama will be able to transform an entrie world in 4 years. :D

    But in all seriousness it would be worth examining what crime legislation Obama wrote or supported while an Illinois State Senator.

    If you have a question about his record as a State Senator, representing the South Side of Chicago, what bills he voted for or against, I'd be happy to discuss that with you. His time as a State Senator has nothing to do with crime in Chicago. And his time as a United States Senator... well, let's see here, last time I checked, there were other cities in Illinois and wait.. wait...

    BREAKING NEWS! There are 10 million more people in Illinois than there are in Chicago. Obama is a Senator of Illinois, NOT Chicago. And as a State Senator, you can only vote on bills for Illinois.

    By definition, John McCain, Senator of Arizona is responsible for the 12% of the population of Phoenix Arizona living below the poverty line, the 8% of all homes in Arizona that are being hit by the housing crisis, the thousands of murders that have happened in Arizona and don't forget the abysmal record of the Phoenix Cardinals.

    Like I said, you are right: Obama has absolutely zero, zilch, zippo responsibility for what goes on in his community.

    So are you saying we need to take personal responsibilty for ourselves?


    It's funny how Bush is to blame for everything bad that happenes in the country and we can't even link Obama one thing bad that happens in Chicago... More hypocrisy from the left.
