Nevermind that the war room and world headquarters of this regime are really in Chicago.
So is the basis of practically everything, especially style. DC is just the satelite office. The bigest import under Obama is Chicago politics.

Speaker Boehner and the Republican House are frustrated that they can’t get President Obama or Senate leader Reid to compromise with them.
The regular rules of order in Congress are that the committees hold hearings, both parties have input into the writing of legislation, and eventually the Senate and House leaders have a conference to come to mutually agreeable terms. This conference report results in a bill that is submitted to the president for signing.
But the president doesn’t seem to follow the old established rules. He wants the speaker to visit the White House, meet with him and his inner circle, and, particularly with regard to issues of spending, sign an unconditional surrender.
Analysts have seen this as proof of Obama’s totalitarian ambitions or an inflated political ego. Others characterize it as a sure sign that he is pursuing socialism.
While the president’s behavior can be used to support all of these descriptions, the real answer may be none of these. Those who seek to understand President Obama may benefit from studying the governing tactics of Chicago’s Mayor Daley I. These have been thoroughly described in biographies of Daley. //…

American Pharaoh is a good name for it. ‘Chicago does DC’; it is like Daley on steroids.
“[Valerie Jarrett] was Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daley, during which time (1991) she hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama, away from a private law firm.” And Obama even had Bill Daley as chief of staff for a stint.
It is nothing short of Chicago expanding its operations to Washington. Remember the guy who was going to cleanup Washington politics and bring transparency? “Give us that good ol’ Chicago transparency.” Now we got the rebooted campaign rerouted through Chicago’s outfit, and the brownshirt network coming to a street corner near you.
