Because He Can’t Blame George W. Bush

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel took over a city that was in a morass of gang violence.

It’s only gotten worse.

Now, when Democrats inherit tough situations, they blame the problems on their Republican predecessors.  But there hasn’t been a Republican mayor of Chicago since the Blackfoot tribe ran the place.

So he’s doing the next best thing; blaming former Mayor “Stick This Gun Up Your Butt” Daley:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel went on the defensive Thursday about a surge of recent homicides in Chicago and questioned why new law enforcement tactics hadn’t been created before he was elected 10 months ago.

“You can say, ‘Are you doing it right,'” Emanuel said, “but the question is, ‘Why were those policies not done before?'”

Between the start of 2012 and April 1, Chicago Police recorded 120 homicides, a 60 percent spike over the 75 murders during the same period in 2010 and 2011.

And let’s not forget – even that rate was catastrophically high.

So far, the only response has been to disarm the law-abiding public even more.

  2. If Trayvon Martin had been killed in Chicago as an innocent victim of a drive-by – no one would know his name. In that sense, there are countless “Trayvon’s.”

    Outrage and umbrage ought to be directed at the black on black victims in Chicago. Media finds this carnage insignificant. Why? – it doesn’t stoke racial passions.

  3. We’d be remiss not to observe that Chicago is home to Jesse Jackson….I’ve asked my relatives if he’s been making appearances and demands for justice but word is that no one’s seen or heard a peep out of him.

    Maybe if someone pins some “Grants” to the bodies, Jesse will pencil in an appearance.

  4. “Why were those policies not done before?”
    Uh, because there was nothing in it for anyone?
