Amazing how many dirt bag "politicians" are not seeking to continue their feeding at the public trough. Another Q casualty?

    I think he actually believes he's doing this so he can run for president. Well I sure hope so, he'd be a great representative of the democratic party of today.

    Emmanuel couldn't run a streetcar let alone a city. But he sure could turn a vibrant city into a hell-hole, that looks more like Beirut than Chicago.

    He got the "Trump Memo"...leave now or we are coming to take you away.
    There has been so many terminations, resignations and retirements by those that don't want to go to gitmo.

    The Gulch is so much better when comments are used to make points and/or bring up discussion points. Using cliche comments on subjects you have no first hand knowledge about really is not what this forum is meant for. Ironically Rahm is being run out by his own party. Not that Rahm has been a great Mayor. Mayor Daley and his Democratic machine bankrupt this city and sold out to every possible union for 20 years. Rahm tried a nice balance of raising taxes and reigning in spending. This city has decided it prefers Mayor Daley's way instead. There are 12 democrats running in the primary. There probably will not be a republican even running in the general election.

      Which illustrates what a lot of the comments are (frustratingly) saying. He forced draconian gun control, just so it fails in a more spectacular fashion than what they had, and never addresses the real issue, which is black on black violence. The fact you have 12 Democrats illustrates the corrupt system that does NOT allow for a 2 party system, and is a legacy to the late Mayor Daley. Nothing in this is positive, or does anything for anyone's rights or freedom, just more obsession with control over people. I also believe he was involved in several scandals involving cronyism. This guy is as Cabal as Obama and Hillary.

        You are 100% correct about Rahm. That is why it is so ironic he is being run out by his own party. And Thank you for an intelligent thought out comment. The Gulch needs more of that than the one liners.
