Pull out of Iraq?

This is from an e-mail that has made the rounds.

Pull out of Iraq?

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


Body Count In the last six months:
292 Americans killed (murdered) in Chicago;
221 Americans killed in Iraq .


Who Runs Chicago?
Senators: Barack Obama & Dick Durbin
Rep: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Illinois Gov: Rod Blogojevich,
Illinois House leader: Mike Madigan,
Illinois Atty. Gen: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike),
Chicago Mayor: Richard M. Daley (son of Mayor Richard J.Daley)
....our leadership in Illinois .....all Democrats!!

Can't blame Republicans; because there aren't any!!!

State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country.

Although, Cook County (Chicago) sales tax is 10.25% (highest in country).
(Look it up if you want)

Chicago school system is rated one of the worst in the country.

Summary:
This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois .

And he's gonna 'fix' Washington politics for us?

Wake Up America!
