Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis is busting “Murder Mayor” Rahm Emanuel over his plan to close 53 city schools, but Emanuel doesn’t have time for that kind of talk:

He’d much rather hear ideas:

Has the “naked rage”-aholic turned over a new leaf? Well, anything’s possible.

But it’s not effing likely.

    Something tells me Rahm really isn’t that interested in ideas either. However, Karne Lewis shouldn’t open any brown paper boxes that come in the mail. Just sayin.

    I don’t like Rahm, but I appreciate how he is playing hardball with the Chicago Teacher’s Union. You know he has to be doing something right if the head of the union is calling him “Murder Mayor”

      He didn’t play hardball with the “CTU”, he caved man! Rahm watered down the demand that Teacher performance evaluations which would have been tired to standardized test scores. After the strike not so much.

    Dear voters of Chicago –

    You should have known who this jackass was before you voted him into office. But because you voted for him, you get exactly what you deserve.

    Sincerely,

    Anyone capable of critical thinking

      Just curious … Did you mean Dear voters or Dead voters?

        Yes.

      There was an election? I’m sure votes didn’t matter.

      I’m sure everyone here is going to jump on this, but, as a business owner in Chicago, I have to say that I’m relatively impressed with Rahm. Granted that’s not saying much for an Illinois politician, but he’s playing hardball with unions and is doing a terrific job attracting jobs to the city and revitalizing the “super loop”. With that said I still have issues with TIF subsidies, unfunded pensions, gang violence and gun control. At least it’s a step in the right direction following the Daley fiefdom.

      I don’t know how much credit Rahm deserve for this, but there is a huge swell of companies in the suburbs moving back to the city (Google/Motorola, Sara Lee) as well as a bunch of tech based startups and incubators popping up in the city.

    Here’s an idea for Deadfish:
    Obama’s Rezko Estates mansion is sitting idle. He’s never coming back to it and Chicago has spent millions guarding it, till they turned it over to the Secret Service to handle.

    Make it a clubhouse for local gang members.
    A place where these youths can bake cookies and socialize and play Monopoly.
    Maybe put up a basketball hoop and have someone teach crafts.

    This will solve the gang violence problems and the youths can guard Obama’s property. Everyone wins..

      Perhaps they can turn the swimming pools at the closed schools into Talapia ponds and have institute an exchange : turn in an illegally possessed firearm and get a dead fish.

    I’m sure the people of Chicago would like ballots, not bullets, but that’s not happening either.

    Rahm was the Al Capone of his ballerina class.

    Memo to Rahm:

    Insults are all we have.
    Deal with it!

    Watch out folks, they can get vicious when they turn on each other.

    Liberal policies have bankrupted the once fine city of Chicago. The Democrats have managed to chase out most of the moral tax payers and are now stuck with keeping their promises to the ‘minorities’ living there. Maybe one of the drive-by shooting gang bangers have a clue since the lemming-like teachers remain clueless which their Union demands.
    Emanuel wanted the job of Mayor, the teachers wanted Rahm, so they are both stuck with the results of their desires. I hope they lose lots of sleep!
