The Case Against Barack Obama

Chicago's Mayor Daley

Think of Chicago and you may think of "pervasive fraud" in hiring and contracts. (Corruption Scandal Loosening Mayor Daley's Grip on Chicago - New ...)

David Freddoso has written “The Case Against Barack Obama”. (Here's looking at you, kid )

Obama is not, according to Freddoso, “a bad person. It’s just that he’s like all the rest of them. Not a reformer. Not a Messiah. Just like all the rest of them in Washington.”

Part of the book looks at Obama’s record in Chicago, his home town.

Obama served in the local Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004.

Obama won the Democratic nomination for his Illinois seat by challenging the validity of ballot petition signatures for his opponents, resulting in their exclusion from the ballot and allowing him to run unopposed in the primary.[2][4]

In other words, he got a team of lawyers to throw all the other candidates off the ballot on various technicalities.

One of those he threw off was the black woman who had helped him get started in politics in the first place.

Obama was a strong backer of Richard Daley, mayor of Chicago, who failed to deal with corruption.

Obama did not oppose the Strogers of Cook County’s Board of Commissioners, which has been criticised for corruption.

Obama became involved with a crooked Chicago property developer, Antoin Rezko.

The case against Obama is that he is just another rather conservative and ordinary politician.
