    I have been looking for some links on what "Senator Obama" has done to help the Chicago unemployment problem since he became a senator and I can't find anything.

    Does anyone have any links on what Obama has done to create jobs in Chicago?

    Either my search engine is malfunctioning or he hasn't done anything.

    He can't be held responsible. He's been on the road campaigning for the last 2 years.

    Neither your brain is malfunctioning, did you compare to see how every major city is doing across the country.. here in RI we are about the same.. it must be fun reveling in other's hard times.

    He let me change mine, as you know.


    Hey--what's wrong with mine? Have you seen the movie? HMMMMM?


    Watch the movie, then get back to me.


    :D


    I don't care if you slam me. I've still got a man crush on you for your posts lately.

    I did not blame him GJ .. once again a poster who cannot read.

    I asked what has he done to help?

    That is not blame ... it's a question.

    Thread hijack .. our own moderator has now become a major thread hijacker.

    if you would like to start a thread about McCain please do so.

    In any event ... would you care to respond directly to the thread question?

    Looks like a draw to me. Especially when you figure in all the "temporary guest workers" in AZ ;).

    I guessed everyone hijacked your thread because no one answered your question. LOL.

    At any rate, the subject of the thread is unemployment and Obama, and I provided a comparison of the four candidates by way of response.

    You know the question is dumb. Obama like McCain are senators, any action they take would be on the national level not the state level.

    It is not dumb ... there are lots of ways to help their states economy.
    some of it is pork, some of it is who you know and steering products needed to come from your state, some of it is helping to secure Federal money for projects.

    It is anything but a dumb question.

    That's due to all the job losses and you can thank GWB for that, McCain will continue it by the way.

    Oh please enlighten us. How is GWB solely responsible for all the job losses? We eagerly await your insight.
