No American with a shred of reason has any doubts that Obama learned politics in Chicago. So much of his political history and methodology are testament to that unsavory school of applied political science.
Part of the problem we’re facing though is that he apparently learned math in Chicago as well…
Back in July, 2009, Obama spoke in Cape Coast, Ghana about the problems facing businesses there:
No business wants to invest in a place where the government skims 20 percent off the top.
That’s Chicago math. It’s bad when the goons in Africa shakedown businesses for 20% but it’s good when his boys shakedown businesses for 35%. In Ghana it’s corruption and confiscatory taxes; in the US under the Obama Posse it’s just “good bidnez.”
