Chicago on the Potomac – Part 2

We wrote a previous column awhile back, pointing out the influence of Chicago politicians and Chicago“bigshots” on the operations in the Obama Administration. The Chicago-based names included Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Arne Duncan, and, of course, Michelle Obama herself. Others who have influenced Barack Hussein Obama, from the “great” City of Chicago, have included the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his mentor while he was located in Chicago, and who is a known Socialist, anti-white, anti-Semite rabble-rouser; Father Phleger, a radical Catholic priest; Tony Rezko, a convicted felon who helped the Obama's buy their house in Chicago; Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, admitted domestic terrorists of Weather Underground fame; Rashid Khalidi, a member of a few Muslim radical groups who support Hamas and Hezzbollah here in the U.S.; Jesse Jackson of the corrupt Rainbow Coalition, headquartered in Chicago; and the infamous white-hating Louis Farrakhan of the Black Muslims, also based in Chicago. He was also pals with the disgraced former Governor of Illinois, Blago, and he is a disciple of that late famous Chicago radical who wrote the book, “Rules for Radicals”, Saul Alinsky.

Now, since the departure of Rahm Emanuel, as Chief of Staff, the “Messiah” has appointed another Chicagoite, William Daley, as his new Chief of Staff. Just what we need, another career politician from the corrupt City of Chicago. He will fit right in with all the other flunky's that surround our “Spender in Chief” in the White House. Daley comes from a political family who have been prominent movers and shakers in Chicago for many, many years. He is the youngest son of Richard J. Daley, who was Mayor of Chicago for 21 years starting in 1955 until his death in 1976. His eldest son, and Williams brother, Richard M. Daley was elected Mayor in 1989 and has served in that position until this year. Known as the “Daley Machine”, whose power came from the control of thousands of patronage positions (city jobs) which were meticulously doled out to trusting political supporters, thereby guaranteeing future support from these job holders. By the way, Al Capone also called Chicago home.

It has been said that Mayor Richard J. Daley, the father, was responsible for the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 by “stuffing” ballot boxes in Texas and by rigging the vote in Chicago. Some said even the “dead” voted for Kennedy in that election. In addition, it was reported that Mayor Daley withheld many votes from certain wards when the race seemed close. Kennedy won Illinois by the slightest of margins, thanks mainly, and in a good part, to Mayor Daley. I guess you could say that it isn't the person who gets the most votes who wins, it's the person who counts those votes that determines the winner.

This is the background that the new Chief of Staff, William Daley came from and from which many of Obama's cronies in the White House and his Administration came from. It's not a pretty picture.

William Daley is a lawyer and was a lobbyist for J.P. Morgan, Bank One Corp. and he sat on the Boards of Directors of Boeing Corp., Merck & Co., the Loyola University of Chicago. You could say that he is well connected and typical of the people who surround Barack Hussein Obama.

Yes, you could say, with a certain amount of certainty, that the Obama Administration is “Chicago on the Potomac” and will probably remain that way till he leaves office, hopefully in 2012.

Excellent! That pretty much captures and sums up the status of the whole sordid mess.
Amazing how much damage one ideologically flawed and RACIST US president can do to screw up America in 2 years.

Can't the people, who support Obama, realize that a "Community Organizer" from Chicago is in over his head in the rough and tumble world of international politics? What he did in Chicago to rouse up the A.C.O.R.N. thugs to march on City Hall, cannot be applied on the world stage. It looks like we might lose a foothold in the Middle East because of his touchy-feely approach with the Muslims and his irresponsible disdain for our only true friend in the area, Israel. I would not like to be in Israels boots now with our pretender in the White House calling the shots. May God bless America and Israel, to hopefully bring us through this moment of turmoil and unrest.
