Viewing the nation from the south side of Chicago
A MIDGET BULLY
I'm no Emanuel fan, but let's be honest. If you call a tap on the shoulder being "shoved," sad for you. On the other hand, the cameraman is obviously much taller than the midget, but the midget isn't afraid to tell you what he thinks.
On the other hand (no pun intended) he could have just given you the finger.....if he had one.
It is funny that all the city workers who irrationally hate Emanuel are the very dupes who have supported the liberal Democratic Establishment of Chicago. Like the pillager who was Daley. You were all in for Clinton and ignored all his and his wife's scandals. You supported Obama even when you were sitting at home with no work. You thought or were told you would get the Olympics and - in YOUR greed - supported Obumstead...TWICE....YOU then supported this weasel.... and because he was not a complete puppet of the Unions and did not IMMEDIATELY give you the spoils you considered yourselves entitled to...he is now a completely evil enemy. Now you want us to support an even more radical left winger like Chuy! He is totally in favor of illegal immigration....the very immigration that hurts you and your unions. It makes no sense...I hated Rahm when he was with Clinton....hated him when he was with Obammunist....and hated him as Mayor. However I will be voting for him over Chuy. But just like starry eyed idiots elected Harold Washington only to find out he was not interested in "us"....and just like starry eyed fools swooned over Obama in 2008....and then...when faced with his failures...could not face it and re-elected him in 2012. The 19th Ward Democrats are being wooed by another leftist who has no financial knowledge, answers, or specific proposals for how he will deal with the unprecedented mountain of debt the city is faced with. My guess is he will, like the left wingers have A:WAYS done...is raise taxes. No thanks...and p.s. - that video showed nothing significant to me.
You're blind. It's pure aggression right in your face. Midgets are the cause of most of the problems in the world today. Always trying to prove something. You must be a blind midget yourself.
Rahm is an ass. Chuy is a man of the people.
So was Hitler, Mao, and every other tin pot Dictator. Good luck with that promotion with your city job when you don't speak Spanish.
He is a man of HIS people...and I doubt you are a recent Mexican immigrant - legal or not.
Why are you so afraid of a midget? Some weird guy in Target just videotaping him...wont engage him....I didn't see any push...making a huge deal out of nothing....just hoping to say "gotcha"....don't see it.
Rahm is all for immigration also. Let's face it neither is a good choice but I can't take Rahm again. I'm up for term limits for everyone
Dart doesn;t have a awn sign in front of his house. I'm confused. What does this mean? Who should we vote for?
Has the WIND blown yet for his decision??
Rahm has always been nice to me when I have run into him in person. Still, I would rather be voting for Mayor Dart or Gov Dart.I am really confused who to vote for myself.
Mayor reneges on promise to Chicago Veterans. Mayor Emanuel announced on 11/9/12 the establishment of the Service to Success Scholarship for Veterans attending the City Colleges to bridge potential funding gaps for returning Veterans attending college. The City Colleges set up $50,000 seed money to start the scholarship and was committed to work with corporate and institutional funders to fund scholarships into the future. The Scholarship was started as planned Spring Semester 2013 but after only providing scholarships to Veterans for 2 semesters, it was ceased even though the initial $50,000 was not completely exhausted. No additional funds were solicited and the Mayor's promise & commitment to our Veterans now goes unfulfilled Who is going to question him and the City Colleges on this?Now the Mayor is promising scholarships to Chicago public school graduates with GPA of 3.0. Will he renege on the promise too after he is elected? The Mayor does not have to answer to how he will fund the new scholarship/program for Chicago high school graduates or what the cost will be or if he will renege on his commitment to Chicago high school graduates as he has done with our Veterans after the Elections?
Timeline:Emanuel was sworn in as the 55th Mayor of Chicago on May 16, 2011, His Brother-In-Law, Laurent Pernot moved into the position as Executive Director, Communication at the City Colleges of Chicago in 8/11 at salary of $128,00.

Laurent Pernot moved into the position as Executive Vice Chancellor at the City Colleges of Chicago in 8/13 at salary of $150,000. Laurent Pernot current salary $153,750. Mayor Emanuel looks after his Family not us Chicagoans.
So what. Sounds like every other 19th Ward gov't worker...their brother's friend...blah blah...I knew Dart in High School....look at all the ex State Attorneys working for Dart ...huge bureaucracy...you have no problem with that...but you name one guy....again big deal...and again what is Jesus gonna do?
Hi, I can't find the connection with Pernot and Rahm, it does not show anywhere that he is his bro in law
Considering that guys like Pickle Joyce have quite a history of doing big things on Easter Sunday, Is Emanuel and his merry band of aristocrats and other royalty ready for the Easter surprise?
Apparently Rahm has a habit of shoving people when he doesn't get his way.The new Chicago way: Evade questions by playing the parent card.That’s some fancy footwork, Rahm-bo:Emanuel was uncharacteristically absent from Obama’s news conference this morning. He was spotted two hours later in the lobby of Chicago’s City Hall. He was there to listen to his two children performing in a concert with their school, Anshe Emet.A Sun-Times reporter pressed him to comment about whether he was the emissary named in the criminal complaint.“You’re wasting your time,” Emanuel said. “I’m not going to say a word to you. I’m going to do this with my children. Dont do that. I’m a father. I have two kids. I’m not going to do it.”Asked, “Can’t you do both?” Emanuel replied, “I’m not as capable as you. I’m going to be a father. I’m allowed to be a father,” and he pushed the reporter’s digital recorder away.Rahm was that kid who got real tough and started talking shit when has a good half a block away. What a wus!
