NO TIME FOR WORK: 5 CAMPAIGN EVENTS ON POTUS SKED...SAME O, SAME O. As Obama finishes his $365,000 Basketball game, and jumps in his $185,000 dollar an hour AF 1 again at the public expense, he is desperate for more cash……..since finding women’s approval of him dropped from 50% to 41%, making him basically unelectable.

Since Il has been under the death grip of the Democratic party dictatorship, the State deficit has grown to THIRD highest in America. Currently over $150,000,000,000! So sad for their children who will be stuck with the tab for the voters unimaginable political ignorance.

Of course Uncle Michael Madigan won't force the guilty politician to step down. He needs that black vote. He won't mess with the crooked black politician. Are you serious.

Sick people move there to get on the states gracious medicaid programs. Often they are mentally handicapped but make excellent voters for the Democratic Party

We had one yesterday that kicked in a door to a 85 and 90 year old couple, beat them both senseless, raped the 85 year old women and then left them for dead on the floor. Stold their car, tv's and phones.....then went to be with his buds........ They sould execute him on TV tomorrow. Young blacks are militant and we will soon be playing cowboys and crips.

You are mis informed. California Democrats colluded with the Public Empl Unions and have amassed over $400 BILLION in State Debt. Even Illinois Democrats aren't as sadistic as Pelosi's Progressive Calif. UnionCrats.

This is one of the main reasons why any American would have to be a brain dead Loser to vote Democratic in the upcoming elections.

Hey, leave the guy alone, he's just copying his master Obama's style of Ill. politics.

Of course the democrats will protect and serve him. That's their M.O. To protect liberal scumbags.

Whining about it won't change a thing. Those of you who oppose him should get off your asses, go to the polls and vote him out.

Illinois voters do not have the brains to vote someone out.
