He brought the war home.
President Obama prides himself on having ended wars. He should not be proud of how he ended them, but still, he takes his pride wherever he can find it.
Now, in an echo that dates to the days of the Vietnam counterculture, the war has come home. More precisely, it has come home to Chicago.
Chicago was Obama’s home base. It’s where he spent his Sunday’s at the feet of notoriously peace-loving Rev. Jeremiah Wright. It’s the home of Louis Farrakhan and Bill Ayers. The city is ruled by Obama’s former chief of staff. What better laboratory could there be for Obamist policies?
By now, you have heard that Chicagoans celebrated the Fourth of July by shooting up the town. Fourteen people were killed. Eighty-two people were shot.
Apparently, the Age of Obama has not brought peace to Chicago. Mayor Rahmbo has certainly not done a very good job curbing the violence.
