Skip to comments.President Obama returns to Chicago

SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio - President Obama left the Cleveland area and an afternoon of health care reform events for two Democratic National Committee fundraisers in Chicago, where he struck a defensive and at times defiant tone about his top priority.
After touching down in his home city for the first time in more than five months, Obama first attended a $15,200-a-person dinner at the Lincoln Park home his campaign fundraiser Penny Pritzker, where he took a shot at the media for what he deemed its "lack of sustained focus on the facts" concerning health care reform, which he said "makes it very difficult" for him.
Then he moved on to an event at the Hyatt Regency, where he defiantly told a crowd of about 750 donors, "We are going to pass health care reform in 2009."
And he used the backdrop of the street-fighter politics that define his home city to fire back at his Republican critics one of whom, Sen. Jim DeMint, he said has told the GOP that defeating health care reform would break Obama.
Let me tell you something," Obama said. "I'm from Chicago. I don't break."

Jesus done left Chicago and he’s bound for New Orleans.
Probably going to have dinner with Bill Ayers and Rev Wright.
Now the evil one is blaming the MEDIA for his woes!
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY are unknown words to the 0bama cabinet and Pelosi and the backyard gang.
Teleprompter has to be re-programmed.
He should stay in Chitcago....they deserve each other.
Life can be sooo difficult when people refuse to be “organized.”
Yeah and a pat on the head for 0bama from Jesse, Al and Soro’s.
Ya' got my hopes up...
Only to dash them into little bitty pieces.
Thank you for bringing up this fact that many are afraid to say outloud for fear of sounding nuts,? I guess...
All over the news and out of peoples mouths we hear, ‘0bama seems to be purposefully destroying our economy and country.’
He is! Simply because this is the ONLY way America will sit down when 0bama introduces his global tax bill (global currency,global governance, global love, peace,we are the world happiness-with 0bama kool-aid bullcrap)
Many have said it outright.... glbal governance, global economy...(Gore most recently)it has been INOURFACES in our news.... We are just shell-shocked watching our country collapse by a Chicago mob thug long legged mack daddy, that our minds seem to refuse to go there because watching 0bama now is too surreal.
Ha! Beautiful... Obama complaining that the media aren’t reporting the facts can only mean that the media are starting to report the facts.
Hey 0bozo, you dumb ass lying POS commie pig!!! I thought you said this wasn't about you, it was for "health care (un)reform" and all the heart breaking letters you are supposedly reading.
It souunds like pressure is really building on this Chicago thug bully. This is literally the first time in his entire sorry ass (hidden) life that he is experiencing any sustained push back. After 46 years, especially the last 3, of a fawning, worshipful, adulating press & rallies, he is no longer being worshipped as he was so used to. In fact now he is lambasting the press for making it "very difficult for him"!!!
His arrogant, immature, narcissistic personality is showing through big time. Personally I think he might be experiencing an emotional breakdown because he just can't handle the thought of people not worshipping or following his every edict.
Seems to me that's what Al Capone said.
Now that's funny.
LOL......oh we all know all about Chicago.
And none of it is good.
Maybe it was the lighting...but his EARS really looked huge....in light of the fact that he complained to Dowd when she mentioned his big ears....showing obvious sensitivity like a school boy............. I have now started to refer to him as "Ears".....pick at that scab, I say!!
I also noticed his ears looked even bigger.
The RACIST remarks following the Officer Crowley/Dr Gates confrontation may awaken enough sheeple to realize who 0bama really is and who it is they elected to govern the USofA.
0bama is not Post-Racial, he is a Race-Bait Racial. And he should NEVER have made the remark he did. He got defensive instead of presidential.
Those remarks will overshadow EVERYTHING else that goes on in DC for a long long time.
He is a radical Marxist, Race-Baiting, Community organizer, mob thug.
He will go down as the worst President ever elected.
I wonder why Al Sharpton and Jesse rentthemob Jackson are so quiet.
That's the very thing about media which is the reason he got elected, their LACK of focus on the facts!
It's the LAST thing Obama should want them to do. Perhaps now that he's biting the hand that helped him up, they will start checking into the facts more carefully...
Prove it! You claim you were born in Hawaii. Do you also have a fake BC from Illinois?
Yeah what makes him a Chicagoian?
