No Actually, Michelle, Hidiya wasn’t you. She’s now a dead teenager because of the pit that liberal policies made her town. Gang violence, poverty, no jobs, no hope, no real police protection. Neighborhoods that have been abandoned because there’s no money because no one is working because liberal politicians seem more and more like vampires as they drain cities and towns and finally families of their life blood.
No Michelle, Hadiya wasn’t you. She was a teenager condemned, like so many others, by a political class that doesn’t give a damn, and only sees the average American as a speed-bump on the road to more power and money.
Neither of the Obamas have any shame. The ghoulishness of using dead children as political props is bad enough, but it also always has to be about them. Always. After ignoring Chicago for years and the river of blood it has become, they now show up, I’m guessing because MObama wants something from them and they have to appear concerned. The violence that’s ripping Chicago apart isn’t going to stop because MObama arrives. In fact, violence among young people all across this country has gotten worse because of the Obama regime’s craven leftist policies. That the people of Chicago allow them to return is, in itself, shocking. Their lives of Chicagoans are being destroyed while the Obamas rake in the cash. Horrible, and yet frighteningly, so typical.
Keep in mind she’s in Chicago pushing gun control, so someone should remind the First Lady that guns are already banned in Chicago, and we can how well that has worked out. Now if we could just ban the political class we might actually be able to make a difference in this country.
First lady Michelle Obama made the debate over gun control personal on Wednesday, choking up throughout her remarks on gun violence in her hometown of Chicago.
“I’m here today because Chicago is my home,” the first lady said at a conference on youth violence with various civic organizations, hosted by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Ensuring the safety and future of children in Chicago is her passion, she said. “It is my mission and for me, this is personal because my story would not be possible without this city.”
The first lady repeatedly referenced Hadiya Pendleton, the 15-year-old Chicago girl who performed at an inauguration-related event outside of Washington, D.C., in January, a week before she was gunned down in a city park.
“Hadiya’s family was just like my family,” Obama said. “Hadiya Pendleton was me. And I was her. But I got to grow up. And go to Princeton, and Harvard Law School and have a career and a family and the most blessed life I could ever imagine. And Hadiya, oh we know that story.”
