Fritz Pfister , you were right, I (and a whole lot of other people) were wrong. We beleived the advertising that Barack Obama was not just a game changer, but one who was going to change things for the better. We were wrong, and I admit it. Not only that, but I voted against Obama this past November. Not that Romney was all that much better, but because we now have a national track record for Mr Obama and it isn't pretty. Too bad more people in this country weren't as intelligent when they voted.

That's change!

Blagojevich’s Illinois was reeling in corruption, political favoritism, extra constitutional mandates, and unfunded pension liabilities...
