This breaks my heart. I was thrilled to see Obama elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004 and to be sworn into that select group of 100 in 2005. I was excited to know that a bright, highly educated, charismatic man would serve his state of Illinois and the American people. I was happy — and followed his new Senate career with hopeful interest — until I began to research his history and found out that he ignored the plight of Chicago’s poorest and most desperate. It was a “deal breaker” for me, as it was for Taters, whose “poignant story I hope that you read last night here at No Quarter.
See Flineo’s other videos. They are unforgettable … unlike the “forgotten people” that Obama has ignored because he was more interested in the money and influence that slumlord Tony Rezko could bring his way.

… Tenants had to call the city just to get the garbage collected because Rezko and his company ignored their requests for help.
… Rezko moved on — turning away from the TAXPAYER-FUNDED “rehab” projects (he got over $100 million) and all of its tenants — with many buildings boarded up as bills and mortgage payments went unpaid, and Rezko going into the fast-food business.
… And Sen. Barack Obama turned a blind eye.
Instead of calling Tony Rezko and telling him to get his ass moving to clean up his properties and make them safe and inhabitable, Barack Obama called Tony Rezko to get him to help finance the purchase of a $1.65 million mansion.
