Chicago politics is probably the third most corrupt in the nation (following NJ and Washington, DC, itself).
My husband's family is from there and they were involved in the Democratic Party for 60 years as aldermen and minor functionaries. What my husband overheard as a child involving graft, fraud and corruption on a massive scale convinced him to switch parties when he was old enough to vote.
Obama saying he's from Chicago does not give me any confidence. 'Chicago Democrat' is just another way to say 'corrupt'.
I had no fondness for Bush and I inundated my Congresscritters with letters, emails and phone calls in opposition to much of the crap that went on during the Bush years. The fact that they didn't respond doesn't mean that I - and thousands like me - didn't TRY to stop them.
In fact, I am betting that the dollar will go in the toilet with a 3 year CD from Everbank which is invested in the currency of China, Brazil, India and Russia.
