There are plenty of naive folks out there who think that a President can't do much about the level of violence in a major city like Chicago. Well, that's total BS. The same way Barry spent millions to save Wall Street, he can put money into programs within Chicago (and other large cities struggling with crime) that help to combat crime (such as $$$ specifically earmarked to hire more police). The same way Barry has gone out of his way for gays (attempting to repeal DADT, granting gay couples hospital rights, etc), he can work with Congress to institute tougher guns laws and anti-gang initiatives. Barry can also talk to the First Lady about getting out there to promote education and self-responsibility (esp. with young, black women are dropping out of school, getting pregnant, catching STD's and committing increasing rates of crime nationwide) as much as she talks about obesity. 2008 saw Blacks vote in record numbers to elect a "first Black president" and thanks to Barry's obsession with pushing a white, radically-Left agenda, they've gotten zip in return--but it's the 'evil' Republicans are the "RACIST!" ones.
