To the editor:
Their notoriety flares and wanes, but Chicago politicians know how to play the game. Nobody gets elected unless they play the game, too. Obama is playing the game or he would never have been elected to office. He has been groomed and polished. Yes, he is handsome and smooth (slick is a better adjective). Is "Mr. Clean" clean?
The corruption of Chicago politics is interwoven into every garment he wears, and the years of preparing him in mind, body and soul are paying off. He has not finished his first term in office, but the corrupt politicians decided that this is the time to put him in the spotlight.
We are told, "Never mind where he came from. Ain't he beautiful?" Yes, he looks good, and we Kansans are always fighting for the rights of blacks. We must look behind the facade and see Obama's ever-present ties to Chicago-style corrupt government.
Kansans have the frontier mindset. We do not want to have to fight for our freedom from the outlaws, but we will fight when necessary. Keep Kansas clean. Keep our nation clean.
