Obama Governing Chicago Style

"From Chicago, he [the President]brings the assumption that there will always be a bounteous private sector that can be plundered endlessly on behalf of political favorites. . . .While promising a politics of mutual respect, he peppers both his speeches and impromptu responses with jabs at his predecessor. . . . Those who stand in the way, like the Chrysler secured creditors, are told that their reputations will be destroyed. Those who expose wrongdoing by political allies, like the AmeriCorps inspector general, are fired." - Michael Barone

Mihael Barone has a very interesting column called Dodge Facts, Skip Details, Govern Chicago-Style which you might enjoy reading. If you have ever spoken to anyone about Barack Obama's time in the Illinois Senate, it looks as if he is yet again bored . . .
