Mayor Rahm Emanuel is going to have to work hard to spin this. Chicago is turning into a murder capital. Obama’s former chief of staff is running a disaster city, and his strict gun policies are backfiring. He’s a disaster. And the only person who doesn’t know it is him.

The numbers are dismal. They’re appalling. Rahm Emanuel, the ultra liberal anti-gun advocated is running a city that Al Capone would be proud of. His tactics have failed, every policy he has tried to implement is catastrophic. It seems he’s cut from exactly the same cloth as his former boss, Chicago community organizer turned warmonger Barack Obama.

In August alone, there were 53 homicides and 224 shot and wounded in Chicago. This comes after the passing of the strictest gun safety laws in Illinois, not to mention in the country. Chicago’s gun laws couldn’t be more restrictive. But the blood is running down the streets. Rahm Emanuel’s policies are a joke. But the joke is on him.

When are the progressives going to wake up to the fact that gun control doesn’t work? Emanuel has made a career out of pushing uber leftist policies. He’s cut his teeth in Chicago, and built his reputation during Bill Clinton’s presidency. He began his “political” career in the Illinois Public Action organization. He’s a more less a community organizer too. And it shows.

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” This comes straight from the mouth of Rahm Emanuel. This is the ultimate mantra of a leftist.

But how to spin the Chicago crisis and not let it go to waste? For someone as maniacal as Emanuel, this shouldn’t be too big of a problem. Maybe try more gun control. That has worked so well in the past. Or maybe he’ll do what other leftists do when their policies fail. Just ignore them.
