Michelle is such a hypocrite her husband worse.

She is from the murder capitol of America CHICAGO, there were over 520 people shot dead in her home town last year and not a tear or a new weapons ban bill proposed or a stern serious faced lecture for congress for any of those dead people ( guess they don't count) then Chicago had a baby shot dead in a drug deal gone bad, no tears, no arrest, no new ban the gun bills in congress???

several thousand people shot and killed in Chicago in the past 5 years, very few if any arrest, all those murders no tears, no public out cry???
what about all those victims don't they deserve a tear or public comment from the worst first lady in American history??

where is the pubic out cry from the neighborhood , the local state or national press???

al not so Sharpton MIA on Chicago, must not be enough TV cameras there for him to mumble in front of..........

so many people shot dead in Chicago it's not news or even second page below the fold headline anymore, just more work for the undertakers and the ammo shot owners.

guess these liberal democrats just turn tears off and on as it suits the purpose of the day.

so why you still in Chicago????

These hypocrites you speak of could care less about Chicago. When are Chi people gonna wake up.Chicago has the strictest guns laws on record and yet they still have the highest murder rate. What does that say?It says that Fidel Obummer and Moochele Obummer only worry about themselves and what benefits them most. He has turned his backs on his hometown people and the rest of America. He flew the parents of the sandy Hook tragedy to Washington . Yet when four brave men in Bengazi were tortured and murdered not one parent of these brave men were flown to Washington.Obummer is a traitor and a liar. he has deceived and hoodwinked people and brainwashed the uninformed.When are Americans going to wake up and realize that they have been swindled by the greatest use car salesman ever to hold public office.

Lol really??? Everyone wants to blame the President... Why is it his fault? He's not pulling the trigger nor is he selling the guns. Everyone wants to blame this man for something that was broken way before he even thought about running for office, but he is trying his best. I'm pretty sure if the shoes was on the other foot you'd be in the same situation. These people out here killing each other know what their doing, but to be honest they just don't care. So don't blame the president start off by blaming the government whom took away the rights to disciplining your child. Now they are running around having babies, robbing, and killing people. Well as a child I was disciplined and I have never been to jail I graduated from high school I don't rob or kill people I'm in college I don't do drugs, and I have no children. I am a 25 year old black female with goals and I grew up in the city of chicago. Thanks to having both my parents in my life. So if u want to blame someone take a look in the mirror and ask yourself what role do you play in society. It takes a village or an army to fight a battle not one person.

well the world is better off with one less lawyer.

it's a real long way from being 16yrs old to becoming a lawyer lots of things could have prevented that goal from being reached especially on the south side of Chicago.

hard to feel sorry for more dead kid in a city with so many dead kids.

say where is the public out cry the outrage.
where is the local & national press, where is the local, county, state federal law enforcement on this issue?

where is al notso Sharpton??? must not be enough tv cameras in Chicago.

hard to feel sorry for one dead kid when no one on the planet surface cares..........

strange news papers announce that everyone who gets killed in Chicago was " aspiring " to be something . as if they had a higher calling or even goals for better life planned than the one they live until they got shot killed.

yet the rest of the cities people don't got no aspirations they ever talk about nothing positive no aspiration ever seems to happen or come true in the hood.

the general population seem very happy to be gun toting drug dealers shooting at everyone any chance or any reason they get. or be a single mom welfare queens have settled for having lots of kids for better monthly welfare payments rather than actually work for a living, illegal immigrants enjoying Chicago's sanctuary status with all the free stuff that comes with ,armed robbers, car thief's, drive by shooters or car drivers, pan handlers, new paper hawkers other assorted ner do wells accomplishing nothing of note.

so how come we never hear about all these aspirations before some one gets kill and michelle sheds a crocodile phony tear for them???

there should be a column in the news paper announcing the aspirations of everyday normal (if you can find normal people in Chicago) living people before they get killed and become famous.
then we readers can determine what is or what is not aspiring about people if those aspirations were close to being true.
