    By the way, I guess I'm Dutch-English. We don't wield much power.

    Not sure why so many are going after this as though it has no credence, or that we have to have Michelle ma Belle in video saying it. Anonymous sources never stopped the libbos from running stories all over the news, and here. Further, Daley did just resign a year too early, so something is up there. And then the story broke that while Gibbs was still in the loop, he blew up in a meeting, where although Michelle was not present, he falled an f'ing something. Axelrod confirmed as much in an interview over the weekend, and Gibbs apologized today.

    Michelle Obama is a two faced arrogant bitch. She's fair game too.

    Little Paranoid aren't they? Here's a hint Mrs. Obama, it's same brand of stupid that got you into the White House that keeps these people you are so distressed about IN office (and that goes for the Bush Family as well).
    You must be distressingly unfamiliar with Chicago and Illinois politics if you think understand the hold that the Daleys and other "big families" held in Chicago while he was Mayor is "paranoia".

    But, when a black person says it about white people, it's suddenly no biggy.
    It does make a difference. The Daley's are basically a political machine.

    Again, I agree. Which again brings up the question as to why Obama brought him to D.C.

    Allow me to clarify: The "justification" I was referring to related to the FLOTUS' commentary of the Daley's, Madigan's and Hynes' was in how they used strong-arm tactics in the past to get what they wanted. I merely used the Gary Municiple Airport project as an example of the Daley's Chicago-style underhandedness.

    Because as much as he might not have liked all of it, he was involved in Chicago/Illinois politics. I have no doubt that the Daley's did him some favors. He was probably returning them.

    Funny though. We both can recognize the problems with some like Bill Daley but yet, Obama brings him to D.C.
    Maybe William Daley was a better man of character and personal integrity than either Richard J. (father) or Richard M. (son) Daley.
