The last thing I expected of the new Messiah was change. President Obama is an Illinois politician. The traditions of pork and payoff, logrolling and back-scratching run deep in the Land of Lincoln. It’s not the cream that rises to the top of the political caldron in the Windy City, it’s something more akin to what covers a stagnant pond, floating on a froth of taxpayer money. To judge by the “stimulus” package, BHO has taken his political traditions with him to the White House.
