DuPage County Illinois States Attorney, Joe Birkett’s office just sent out an email blast regarding the recent liberal media’s smear campaign aimed at Governor Sarah Palin and her family. He slams the media for their pettiness then rips into Obama’s political fortitude.
Birkett States, “If Barack Obama had her political courage, our state wouldn’t be in the sorry position it is in today under Democratic rule.”
He adds, “Can anyone remember Barack Obama speaking out against Democratic corruption? Trying to remember is a bridge to nowhere.”
I’d like to see the national media ask that tough question of Obama. Illinois is one of the most heavily taxed and corrupt states in the union. Gas prices and sales tax are the the highest in the nation, unconstitutional handgun laws have made the City of Chicago more unsafe and dangerous than ever, and cronyism, corruption, and pay to play are rampant. That is the type of leadership an experience we can look forward to under an Obama administration.
