Here's the link.

Obviously Obama (who walks on water and rescues kittens) has no control over this.

cbs2chicago.com - Chicago Beats New York, Los Angeles In Murders (http://cbs2chicago.com/local/chicago.homicide.rate.2.847736.html - broken link)

Doesn't Chicago have a handgun ban? Does Obama have any hand in this?

Of course he doesn't. Why do republicans keep bringing something up Obama has no control over?

By the way, the last time I posted about all the murders in Chicago it got moved by the mods as being a "non-presidential" issue.

This is SERIOUS stuff. Democrats seem to like banning certain things but ignore the results of doing so.

and a full cup of coffee that has sat on your desk for a week, might not be good, but how does that affect Obama. Answer to both - It doesn't.

No but he actually voted against curtailing stronger penalties for gang violence.

Funny. It seems EVERY problem Illinois has Obama has nothing to do with.

I think a lot of you need clarification on the difference between a senator and a mayor or police chief.

Should we blame John McCain for Arizona being the meth capital of the country? Or the massive rise in illegal immigration in past years?
