Obama doesn't really care about Chicago, his priorities are elsewhere.

It seems that the hope and change BS luster has worn off about 5 years ago.

It is encouraging to see some of the sheep break free AND think for a change.
Actually, this is how I see it. He isn't the first to pull for amnesty. Reagan did that in the 1980s. And it isn't just Chicago. What about New Orleans? What about Newark? What about Detroit, Oakland, St. Louis, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Memphis, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh,etc. The sad thing is, no President has really cared about the poor Black population living in ghettos. No one. I think what has disappointed many is that President Obama wasn't different from any other politician. Fact is, no one really cares about the poor Black population, neither Democrat or Republican.

Yea, it was a reply to what sounded like sarcasm, if it wasn't I stand corrected.

But back to the topic, many Americans expected Obama to be honest and keep his word about transparency in his administration.

It's easy to see that often times it is his supporters/ ex supporters that would be the most disappointed in his actions.

Why? Like I said, that's not the low hanging fruit.

Both parties are nothing but a bunch of ho's.

They aren't going to waste energy chasing hard to get votes from a segment without deep pockets.

Just like Obama started finally throwing out some pro-gay stuff when 2012 got near and the gays were like "Obama isn't doing sh*t for us". They got some attention after that. Weird huh? Threaten to cut off the free milk and bam! You get some help.

P.S. Obama did propose the colossally stupid STEM program to help blacks going to college to get into the science etc. fields. Um....you need to start EARLIER than that. That's like starting a basketball program for Asians because there aren't enough of them in the pros.....at age 18. That stuff needs to be aimed at gradeschoolers....not highschoolers.

Kind of like how supporters expected the same from other Presidents. I will admit, I did vote for former President George W. Bush in 2004. He ended up disappointed me, especially after the way the Katrina disaster was handled.

Bingo.

I voted for him in 2008. Freakin' Bush 3.0 after he got elected.

My relative was a huge Obama fundraiser and volunteer. I love them but most would call them a far left environmentalist. I think they'd like to poop in his boots if they ever went camping with him at this stage.

Monsanto CEO head of the FDA? Tell me Obama isn't a republican (D).....tell me.....lie to me. lol.

Demonstrators blasted the Obama administration’s inaction in Chicago while federal funds are earmarked to help the roughly 50,000 illegal immigrants who have crossed into America since October."

Obama slammed by black Chicago residents: 'Worst president ever' - Washington Times
The cynical nature of conservatives is pathetic. conservatives actively wouldn't have anything to do with those black residents in poor neighborhoods.


There is a reason, those residents don't make appeals to conservatives, because they know conservatives wouldn't lift a finger to help. So they complain to the people who they feel will listen to there pleas.

And they should complain. I have no problem with voters complaining about politicians when they feel their issues aren't being addressed.

But the headline is sensationalistic and misleading.

But that's the point.

Further irony that early in the thread some of our resident far-left poo-poohed the whole thing because so few were protesting.

That's the key....despite all of this....his "core" lets him get away with it because they are blind out of party loyalty.

For every foaming at the mouth insane birther.....there is a doe-eyed fool rationalizing every corporatist, illegal vote pandering action he takes. Neither of course sees it.

I was merely responding to someone who said that Blacks won't listen to the Republican Party. Truth is, I'm convinced the Republican Party really does not care that this point.

I never paid much attention to the pro-gay stuff until after the election.

I didn't even know a STEM program had been passed. I kept hearing about some stuff with NASA. However, I never knew much about the details of the STEM program. The way technology has been changing, one needs to start young.

Lolz...complaining about conservatives not lifting a finger when the residents protesting in a ****hole neighborhood...walled off from the rest of the city, with murder rates 40x higher than the nice areas....have been living in a democratically controlled city since Al Capone was around.

And you want them to appeal to reps? Bwah hah hah hah. Reps don't ever win elections in Chicago.
