Well, first of all, Chicago is not Obama's "hometown". That would be Honolulu, Hawaii. That said, name one thing the Bushy boys did for Crawford, Texas while they were presidents. Bill Clinton for Hope, Arkansas? Ronald Reagan for Tampico, Illinois; Los Angeles or Santa Barbara? Jimmy Carter for Plains, Georgia? Etc, Etc, Etc. Other than generating business for the tourist trade, I can't think of one thing.here is whats sad....most presidents help out their home town when they hold titles like MR. PRESIDENT...but obama has not done one thing to help chicago...why is that...crime is running rampant..and he wont do a thing to help...why is that?
