The tea-baggers are still crying about the Election... LOL, I love it... Obama is possibly our greatest President and all the tea-baggers can do is cry.
Keep crying losers; i get so much joy from your suffering.
A State with ZERO Republicans
This is the political culture that Barack Obama comes from in Illinois. It is all he knows.

There are more people on Welfare in Illinois than there are people working.

Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. averaging $110,000/year.

Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. You can't blame that on Republicans, because there aren't any.

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?

Body count: In the last six months 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago. 221 killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US!!!

Here's the Chicago chain of command:
. President: Barack Hussein Obama
. Senator: Dick Durbin
. House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
. Governor: Pat Quinn
. House leader: Mike Madigan
. Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
. Mayor: Rohm Emanuel

. The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.
. Thank you for the lawless combat zone in Chicago.

. Of course, they're all blaming each other.
. But can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

. Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

State pension fund $92 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!.

Cook (''Crook?'') County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. It's all he knows. And he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us??? He is 'fixing' it alright!!! Just like so many former Illinois Governors 'fixed' a lot of things (elections, Senate appts, AG cover ups). It's all he knows.

. George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in the ''big house''.

. Of course he was replaced by Rod Blagojevitch who is.....oh yeah, that's right, also in the big house.

. And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago. Because he is desperately fighting being sent to...that's right, the big house.

. The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make your license plates.

But you know what? As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.

But that's Obama's plan...as long as he keeps providing entitlements to the population of the entire US...nothing is going to change...Democrats stay in control. It's the ''perfect fix''. And the Land of Lincoln (land of the honest Republican)... will be no more......

I saw most of the original series years ago.

Didn't watch the new one in spite of Morena Baccarin being in it. She caught my eye in Firefly and later in Stargate. She could whip me, beat me and make me write bad checks.

He had ideas of running the world, look at the
mess he has make by sticking his nose in. Our
country is all but gone, and he keeps coming up with
something different that HE KNOWS NOTHING
ABOUT AND IS NOT CAPABLE OF SOLVING! So
many things he has forced on us which has been a
disaster, yet the ignorant are still with him.
Until it comes to your door, you simply don't have
a clue and its called "whatever"!!! Just keep
doing as he and you have done all these years,
BLAME!
Other countries are taking and laughing in your
face at the fools you are
