Chicago is a Quagmire

Democrat party, out of Chicago!

Barack Obama's old "community organizer" stomping grounds seem to be having some problems:

CHICAGO (CBS) ― An estimated 123 people were shot and killed over the summer. That's nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.

In May, began tracking city shootings and posting them on Google maps. Information compiled from our reporters, wire service reports and the Chicago Police Major Incidents log indicated that 123 people were shot and killed throughout the city between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1.

According to the Defense Department, 65 soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq. About the same number were killed in Afghanistan over that same period.

In the same time period, an estimated 245 people were shot and wounded in the city.
I think the the main problem is that we're just not seeing political reconciliation between the various factions. You have the Jesse Jackson faction that has held power until a Democratic offensive forced them out last year. Instead of implementing a "de-Jacksonification" policy, the occupying Daleyist's should have been more inclusive and allowed some Jacksonians to remain instead of allowing them to carry out an insurgency. The third faction is the deeply ingrained Obamaist's who have gained power and worked closely with the Dayeyists.

It's time for a "surge" I believe. Perhaps this may be one that Barack Obama may actually get behind.

Update: It seems like the only "hope and change" happening in C-Town is the criminals hoping they hit their target and changing an empty clip for a full one.
