    Perhaps the President visited Chicago yesterday to say bye to Jesse and his wife before they head for the federal pen.

      “Today, Chicago is the a (sic) killing field of America…It is interesting to note that Chicago, and Illinois for that matter, have been run by Democrats since anyone can remember. They can't blame their mess on Republicans.” –t.bfine

      Is it “a” killing field? It’s comparable to many urban areas. Is it “the” killing field? Hardly. It’s not even in the top 15. Do you people ever attempt to actually do any research about anything you say? If you need to try to make a political point that all murderers are motivated by political affiliation, so be it. I’m certain that many other socio-economic factors enter into it, but that would require some actual thinking on your part, which, as Bobby Jindall has told you, is not your strong suit.

    • Odd, how his father got away with it and Sharpton gets away with it, yet, he can't. Part of the Obama machine in Chicago.

    • Maybe he can also stop and visit Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R) while on his travels.
