Snipit: As an Illinois state legislator, Sen. Barack Obama secured at least $300,000 to fund projects that benefited friends, relatives and contributors, according to a conservative government watchdog group.

Those projects included a botanical garden that was never built, a church with a controversial pastor and an organization headed by Michelle Obama’s cousin.

Obama and his chicago-style politics and friends.

It's old news, but considering the MSM ignores these types of things about Obama, it's refreshing to see it again.

Yet more proof that every single politician is in it for the benefit of themselves and their own little inner cirlce.
When will the masses realise?
I'd love to be UK PM to fix the mess, but unfortunately we don't elect our PM. We choose our local MP and the leader of the party with the most MPs becomes PM... which basically proves we have no choice.
Our leaders are chosen for us, and are in it for themselves.

Oops, I started ranting a bit there. But there is meaning, if you can decipher it..
