Mayoral Honeymoon is Over - Crime, schools and race all hound Rahm Emanuel

The honeymoon may or may not be over for Mayor Rahm Emanuel. But, let’s put it this way: The romance is gone.

This week, Emanuel returned from a week-long summer vacation to the political equivalent of a punch in the nose. He was forced to face the music about three intransigent problems with the potential to trip him up: crime, schools and racial diversity.

Fueled by a 39 percent spike in Chicago’s homicide rate that has become a media obsession both locally and nationally, African-American aldermen were demanding the return of specialized police units disbanded to put more officers on beat patrol.

Chicago’s convention and tourism chief warned that the spike in homicides and a troubling return to mob attacks downtown was making meeting planners nervous about whether Chicago is a safe place to visit.

The Chicago Sun-Times turned up the heat with an analysis that showed nearly two-thirds of Emanuel’s City Hall cabinet is white.

And the mayor was forced to explain why he authorized a $5.7 billion school budget that leaves the Chicago Public Schools without a penny in the bank, even though he has ridiculed Richard M. Daley for selling off Chicago parking meters and spending the proceeds to hold the line on taxes at City Hall.

The morning after is here. You wake up, your head and ass hurts, you got a bad taste in your mouth. Look over and see Rahmbo snoring away. You wonder what the fuck you were drinking that made him seem even remotely fuckable. Then a day or two later, the burning sensation starts and next month those little itching blisters show up.

Rahm, the smirking midget, was Obama's chief advisor.
What those two fools did to the country Rahm is now doing to chicago! This arrogant mutt has never had a real job, just like Obama!
And the results are the same. They get rich, we get poor! Any working man who would vote for ANY democRAT IS A TOTAL FOOL.

White cabinet because there's no non-whites that can do the fucken job. If and when some come along that can, hire them. Until then, "I hired the most qualified individuals available."

Schools: They're fucked up. Have been for 40 years. Want to unfuck them? Break the Union. No one makes more than $80K at the job - want more? Get a private sector job. No pensions for us to fund - want money in your retirement? Save your own fucken money assholes.

Crime: Let every law abiding citizen carry concealed and shoot to kill if some jagoff tries to commit him bodily harm. Put every fucken jagoff in jail who uses a firearm in commission of a crime. Kick every illegal sponge out of the Country - deport every fucken last one of the con artist pricks.

Got it? Get to work Rahm... or get the fuck out of Chicago. Stop being a pussy already.

Sure now they will start up MTU, SOS, TRU or some other named unit to start a new named unit to combat crime, staffed by the officers that were just assigned to the districts to make his promise of adding 1000 police officers to the streets. But HE ISN'T going to say that the manpower to staff these units is being reduced from the very same districts that they were sent to. That is why they need to hire more and CCW.

Lift residency now! It's unconstitutional! We are the last of the major metropolitan cities that has this outdated ruling where we have to live in the city. State law says we have to live here, however, they can change that shit if they really wanted to...they do it for everything else if it fits their needs..ahem..PENSIONS!!!

Rahm is just doing to Chicago what Obama wants to do, and IS doing, to the USA at large!

This guy needs to go. Period.

He doesn't have a clue (just like Obama) but he is going to throw on the arrogance and pseudo-intellect to put down his critics.

Vote him out next time or STFU and get your shine box.

Without public office - or an appointed cabinet job - people like Rahm are just some loudmouth blowhard who you wouldn't give a second notice to.
