Obama on Housing: Dismal, Corrupt and Ordinary

Russ Vaughn 30 June 2008 2 Comments

It was, of course, inevitable. How could any politician rise so quickly on the legendarily corrupt Chicago political scene and be as pure as Obama’s devoted followers were purporting him to be? The question in the minds of skeptics was, “Who sent you?”

Well now we’re beginning to find out and it ain’t pretty. In a lengthy, and amazingly frank, Boston Globe article depicting the dismal results of Chicago’s attempt to develop and manage low income housing through private developers, we see that the candidate of change is nothing more than another Chicago machine-generated pol with his feet firmly mired in the muck of corruption of the city he chose to make his political base.

    I hope people follow that link and read the incredibly ignorant comments below the article. Seriously what rock did these people climb out from under. Everything to Obama is receiving contributions from Mosques in other countries to being part of the Syrian Mafia, to him not being a natural born citizen. The article and the comments are asinine.

    Chad,

    Can you expand on what you see as problematic with the article?

    Thanks,
