Checking the news over lunch I see that the legislature of Illinois is trying to figure out how to fire Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. This is in response to protests calling for his resignation. This comes only a week after the firing of Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy for covering up criminal activity by the CPD.
Chicago is not the only city that has suffered recently.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has set NYC back more than 20 years, bringing back the homeless, crime, and squeegee men.
Detroit is bankrupt. It takes an hour for police to respond on a good day.
Baltimore is besieged by a record crime wave.
The major common characteristic of each of these cities is that they are Democrat strongholds, run by Democrats, some for 50 years or more.
We are watching in real time the failure of Liberal policies. It’s like watching the slow collapse of the Soviet Union.
What amazes me is that these local failures don’t stick to national candidates. From what I can tell Hillary and Bernie want to do at the federal level everything that the mayors of these cities did locally. Hillary is Emanuel. Sanders is de Blasio. The Democrat presidential candidates need to be made to own the failure of Democrat cities.

I love it when the dems start eating their own. The republicans alone cornered that market for far too long.
The single greatest sin in the Liberal pantheon is admitting fault for anything. We can try to force them to own it, but it is highly unlikely they will actually take credit.
I’ve told my relatives that still reside in NYC that they have short memories. They don’t remember the “dark days” of the 80’s and early 90’s which led to Giuliani being elected. There answers are usually something about how “we have always been at war with Eastasia.”
As someone who spends a significant amount of time in NYC, I can wholly say that while De Blasio is universally hated, this is not 2A friendly city no matter who is in charge. Don’t think that will change at all with a Republican mayor.
I don’t understand how the dems and liberals can stay bling to everything that is happening right in front them.Why don’t the rest take action and stop this madness.Start with Obama and work it’s way down and start cleaning this mess up
