    No way...kinda hard to end the corruption when he himself practiced the same type of "thug politics".

    However, to Obama's credit, he certainly makes it appear that he did something about it.

    The Culture of Corruption has been well entrenched in that putrid septic tank on the Left Bank of the Potomac (how was that for an omen?) for decades. The Leftists are simply letting everybody know that from now on They won't worry about appearances. They control the White House. They control the House of (Mis)Representatives. They control the Senate. They control the Federal Courts. They control the Labour Unions. They control the Universities. They control the ability to count any votes from this day forth....... etc..... Even the Renfields (minions of the media) are just now starting to realize what a disastrous mistake they made! Only they can't bring themselves to correct this problem. They fear the consequences! President Obama has thrown down the gauntlet of Presidential Favour to the press, play by his rules or be locked out! On the bright side of these events Obama,Pelosi, Reid, etal... have made a stupendous mistake and gave themselves only until the middle of February to bring the US stock markets back to where they were last mid December, and to do this without crashing the dollar! If the 'Press' and the Republicans have the sense and courage to grab this opportunity (I'm not betting on them) then they may save themselves When the Dems fall.

    Well, Obama did write some letters to prosecutors in support of Tony Rezko.

    Of course he has done nothing. He is right in the middle of it.

    As an Illinois native I'd just like to invite you to go screw yourself.

    No .. he actually is a product of it. So, you will never see him bite the hand that has fed him.

    If he had...I'd be voting for him. But no, he doesn't accomplish things, he talks about accomplishing things.
