    And now to take the crime and corruption of the Obama administration back to where it started, Chicago, a city that doesn't need more crime, corruption and robbery by public unions. I can see a future Detroit here.

    Wasn’t it Rahm who said “never let a crisis go to waste.”? Well, now we can add never let a White House departure not become an “Oprah moment.” When Rahm brings up his parents am I supposed to want to hug him? Is this political theater devised to manipulate us or are our leaders such wimps that they need to share their feelings on the national stage? In any case, I can see Al-Qaeda using footage from the W.H. announcement as part of a recruiting video with the title “Are you kidding? We’re fighting these wussies? “
