What an "ObamaNation" looks like
Where is the Change Obama????
"The problems of Altgeld Gardens are as bad today as when the youthful Mr Obama was here trying to get rival church and community groups to co-operate. Many of the houses are boarded up and gangs of unemployed youngsters roam the streets. " Linda Randle
There is so much said in that picture. Obama is going to have a tough row to hoe, methinks.
This guy didn’t get the memo. He’s hauling absentee ballots for Hillary.
A good photoshop would be to switch the couch with a dead body.
Midnight in the Altgeld Garden of Obama's Good and Evil
Same dish on another day.
There’s probably some change in the sofa.

That statement offends me. How raciest of you to use it. Are you referring to Obama’s slave heritage with “row to hoe”? Or are you pulling a Don Imus with the “hoe” comment? SARC
It’s pitiful what people give you??!! Is she whining that she’s not getting enough welfare, the dirty crack ho!?
Since when did the statement “tough row to hoe” become racist? I have had lots of “tough rows to hoe” and so did my ancestors.
I think you are still seeing black and white.. you must be a racist.
This community does not look all that organized.
I didn’t make the “tough row to hoe” post. I made the crack ho post.
Obama's job was to explain to local residents how to research their problems, contact political officials and answer reporters' questions. He figured out who the community leaders were and tried to get them to join forces.
"He had to train residents to stand up for their own rights," said Loretta Augustine-Herron, who was part of the Developing Communities Project.
