I must correct some of my previous statements. The president did appoint Daley as his chief of staff at the whitehouse. The corrupt Daley family connection to the obama's are thur Michelle Robinson-obama who was an assist to Mayor Daley. I stand corrected. So I understand better about the connect between the Daley family and the Robinson-obama family. The president also worked for the Chicago Law Firm of Miner, Barnhill & Gallard as a civil rights lawyer. The president also work in the Business Sector for two years somewhere? He taught at U of Chicago Law School.
Know matter what there's a connection to the corrupt Daley family on both sides of the obama's.
Cronyism is clear practices of the obama's.
Its clear to me that after reviewing Michelle Robinson-obama Bio that she was a member of the Daley crew. I mean she apart of the most politically corrupt family in this country (The Daley's). Once a member of the Daley's always a member of the Daley's gang. Look at all the positions she had from harvard law school and the salaries she recieved. Involved with Americorp to funnel money. Worked at U of Chicago along with her husband. Involved with an intern when she was a member of sibley & austin's managerment. Check out her families estate holdings.
We as Black people have to think past the obama's. They're a product of the american dream (CORRUPTION) AT ALL LEVELS. We have always had Black gangsters and phoney's. Now we have Ivy Leage sellouts and phoneys from harvard, columbia and princeston. I grew-up in and around the HOOD and being a gangster was for those who couldn't do anything else. My question is why have so many of US cover-up for the phoneys in the whitehouse??? Our great children will pay for this lie. The Black elite and civil rights so-called leaders have sold us OUT. Tavis and West could have done a better job of telling the truth.
Following law school, Michelle worked as an associate in the Chicago branch of the law firm Sidley Austin in the area of marketing and intellectual property. There in 1989, she met her future husband, Barack Obama, a summer intern whom she was assigned as an adviser. "I went to Harvard and he went to Harvard, and the firm thought, 'Oh, we'll hook these two people up,'" Michelle said. "So, you know, there was a little intrigue, but I must say after about a month, Barack…asked me out, and I thought no way. This is completely tacky." Initially, she refused to date Obama, believing that their work relationship would make the romance improper. Eventually she relented, and the couple soon fell in love.
After two years of dating, Barack proposed. "We were at a restaurant having dinner to celebrate the fact that he had finished the bar," Michelle remembers. "Then the waiter came over with the dessert and a tray. And there was the ring. And I was completely shocked." The couple married at Trinity United Church of Christ on October 18, 1992.
