Well, Rahm is a progressive so it makes perfect sense to use progressive logic. If you have some investments that make good money and some that don't, if you get rid of those that make money, it makes those that don't look better.

Rahm looks like he's ready to give something oral, not moral.

Obama taught him well. Never let a round mouth go to waste was Obama's motto.

The defining characteristic of the Obama Era is America as a spiritually and emotionally bankrupt gaggle of Losers.

Today, Obama travels to yet another ultra divisive staged Union rally in Minnesota to use Guns to further drive His wedge between the American people.

We have no one to blame but ourselves. We knew his primary goal was to permenantly divide us into a morass of disconnected strangers before we watched him be re-elected.

How is this era less spiritual? does some mythical spirituality really mean anything in the real world? when you throw out statements that don't really mean anything and claim that as the moral high ground, this is why people poke fun of your hypocrisy...

I totally agree. We proved we are a Nation of political ignoramists......in November. We deserve every horrific out come that Obama and the hard left deal to our families. We didn't MAN UP and must accept that each day will be worse than yesterday for all who love our Country.

Listen to today's rant in Minneapolis. Listen and cringe.

Who would expect more than theatrics when the clowns are in charge of the parade?
I'm sure the overpaid government workers won't mind a bit that their retirement money isn't there and will campaign for more progressive investment to ensure that their funds go broke.
I'd suggest that the criminal mayor put all investments into good, solid, "morally acceptable" businesses like Solyndra and Radio Free America.. Oh wait - they are both already broke - Perfect !
Just like Chicago !
