Uh Oh

  • Chicago’s mayoral runoff race moved on Sunday to the West Side, where a crowd at an NAACP forum turned on Mayor Rahm Emanuel before warmly embracing his challenger, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.

    The Chicago Westside NAACP Branch gave Emanuel and Garcia an opportunity to make their cases to voters at Purcell Hall in Garfield Park. The candidates spent roughly an hour each answering questions from a two-person panel.

    Emanuel went first, fielding questions about education, street violence, West Side representation on city boards and community participation in city government. But the crowd grew restless as he neared his closing statement and had used examples from other parts of the city to explain his policies.
Everyone knows there are a few major factions in the black community - the west side reverends and the south side reverends are two of them. These aren't the only factions, but they hold sway over sizable voting blocs. It's been that was since the old Machine days. It's a bit more fractious now, but still, if Rahm can't get canned applause at a west side event in front of a reliable democrat voting bloc, there are big issues for him. Good weather on election day will have many of these people at the polls early.

Get out and VOTE!

Does any incumbent deserve your vote?
Why?
Did they fight for more police?
Funding your pension?
Support the police?
Support better schools?

Does ANY judge deserve your vote?

To my black co workers, remind your extended family members that Rahm closed all those schools in BLACK neighborhoods. Those school staff members were mostly black who all lost their jobs. These reverends that have now endorsed Rahm have done that for the same reason Fioretti did...money!!!Rahm and Mccarthy continually disrespect all Chicagoans by regurgitating the lies about crime. Stop being led around by your nose and think for yourself. Read between the lines and think analytically.

Its over. Rahms pulling away in the Tribune poll. Everytime Chuy opens his mouth he loses votes. Channel 7 news did a segment last night, Chuy did not sound good.
On crime he says he will hire 1,000 more police, no answer on how to pay for them. Will put them in CAPS, just what we need, 1,000 more CAPS officers Further stated he would put more into high crime area communities to get the trust,cooperation of the residents to solve crime. Yea like they haven't been trying that for 20 years. Wants to take more policing out of downtown and put in high crime districts. How many more po's does 007, 011 and other high crime districts need. Rahm countered that the downtown area has to be protected because of the revenue it brings in from business and tourists.

"...a crowd at an NAACP forum turned on Mayor Rahm Emanuel before warmly embracing his challenger..."

Woo hoo! Sounds like The Word has come down.

Amalgamated Transit Union has weighed in for Chuy. Running radio commercials -- pleasant-sounding black man, talking about "the working people."

"...the crowd grew restless as [Emanuel]...used examples from other parts of the city to explain his policies."

Examples like this?

"The marked deterioration of the Jefferson Park and Portage Park commercial districts in recent years is a growing concern. The streets...resemble...a ghost town [rather] than a hub of local commerce."

-- Shattered Sense Of Innocence, Lindberg, R. and Sykes, G., SIU Press, 2006

Rahm's progress? Milwaukee Avenue -- new sidewalks and planters and lights and trees and banners at our expense, but still "FOR RENT, "FOR RENT," "FOR RENT."

Chuy made a big deal about closing 50 schools. Does he want them opened with attendance less than 50%
Under used schools were closed, thats what you have to do. Also doesn't want appointed school board members, but elected ones. Look at how the local school boards have done.
And the best after hes elected he will "form a committee to find the solution" Why not right now. City budgets are public information or is it the old Pelosi,"We have to pass it to see whats in it trick"

My God, look at the puss on that guy. Tiny Dancer looks like he just ate Raw Rat.

It's a good thing he's just trying to get votes from imbeciles. His dismissive attitude and gestures -- 'I hate you low-life peasants' -- wouldn't go over so well with normal voters in a national campaign. So Rahm better get used to staying in Chicago 'cause he ain't going nowhere in any other election.

Of course he can always go back to DC again and work behind the scenes for the demonRATS, all he needs is a new set of Steak Knives. :-)
[for those that don't know what that refers to: Rahm & his Steak Knife)

CHORUS

Don’t resent Mayor One Percent
He’s the guy lookin’ out for you
From Lincoln Park down to Streeterville
Unless your collar’s blue

He’s got the backs of Goldman Sachs
And JP Morgan, too
Mayor One Percent is quite content
To have a city that works for a few

VERSE ONE

Drinkin’ wine in Montana
With Bruce and Diana
He’s closing down neighborhood schools
We’ll all go and see him
At the Star Wars Museum
When he rewrites the lakefront rules

His management duties
Get downgrades from Moody’s
But his red-light camera fines
Will hammer the poor
And help to ensure
That downtown Chicago shines

CHORUS

VERSE TWO

He gave a gym to DePaul
With a TIF basketball
While young kids have no place to play
Jukin’ the crime stats
Strokin’ the fat cats
As parts of the city decay

With a wink and a smile
He’s on the Mag Mile
Taking checks from Gold Coast friends
And his V-neck sweater
Will make it all better
As the TV commercial ends

No Presidential library announcement , no Firefightr test results , one police recruit class day before election , no endorsement by the Daley 's for rahm , No preckwinle endorsement for rahm , she knows the blacks are mad about violence , school closings and rahm swearing at a female black like she was a dog .
Another day of Chicago History will be made on April 7,2015 when Chicago Elects it's First , but not last Mexican Mayor from the Southside of Chicago .
Bobby rush couldn't get a vote if he ran for mayor , blacks hate his kind that preach black power , he wore a hoodie in congress , black working class know thje travon types are the ones shooting their kids down like dogs , burglarizing their homes and slinging dope on the corner . That endorsement cost ballerina dancer from newtrier votes

Well, this time we DO have to vote it in to see what's in it, because rahm is doing everything he can to keep Garcia from having access to all the information he needs. Two sets of books, one of them hidden in the back room, doesn't give Chuy - or us - much to work with.

It's so depressing. You expect to see tumbleweeds blowing down Milwaukee and down Irving Park.

Rahm's had four years to turn that, and a number of other city problems, around. He's failed. Let's move on from the arrogance experiment.

How if your black and not rich can you vote for a guy like rahm who closed 50 schools, closed mental health centers, will not support opening up a much needed trauma unit at university of Chicago hospital (don't forget trauma is not just gun shot victims, but if you have a car accident or heck even fall off a ladder and you have major problems you could realistically die before your taken to a trauma center as the ambulance drives past university of Chicago hospital), maybe if you can wave as you go past knowing your life could of possible saved or you would have less medical problems with quick trauma care!

To make matters worse don't forget Michelle Obama had a job made up style on the board at university of Chicago hospital paying her over $350,000 per year and when she left the job was closed, pay to play??

What's funny is lots of police and police families are getting the robo polling calls. Most are saying they're voting for rahm. They're not. Totally skews the polls. Oops.

Proposed city budgets are a matter of record, but city income is not available to the public, because of the TIFs. The allocation of TIF money isn't public, either. So, not even YOU can get that information. Garcia doesn't stand a chance in hell of getting that information from Rahm; it's the only way Rahm retains a little bit of control in this race.

And Rham is endorsed by Obama- the head "card carrying commie".

NO good choice here,but Chuy will be gone after 1 term.

Let the turn-over begin!

No politician should have more than 1 term.
