Chicago, CHicago

In the midst of all the scandals, the myopia, the lack of leadership coming from the Obama administration, Chicago, the president's erstwhile home town, is having a rough summer, and the residents have their hands full with gangs, violence, murders, drug-dealing, all the things that come with a dysfunctional city government that doesn't look out for its people.  However, this is the President's hometown, and the mayor is a long-time Democratic operative.  It seems like the people are finally waking up.
“With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“
I don't know the guy's political leanings, and don't ascribe any party to his comments.  He might be a tea-partier.  Or he might not.  Here's the photo ascribed as being the guy from the quote.

The Rebel Pundit has more, and there's lots more to see at the link.

I do note that Chicago has been having a rough month.  150 people shot and at least 26 killed, and the month isn't halfway over yet.  And, the president is having a rough month as well.  When you lose your neighbors, you've lost a lot of political capital.
