Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

In the wake of the Safeway massacre, the left has gone to insane lengths to blame the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, et. al. for pure political reasons. They're clearly applying the Rahm Rule - never let a crisis go to waste - which begs the question, does Rahm think they are mis-applying his rule? A reporter asked him about it and though he denied this is the time to use it, he failed to draw any clear line of distinction. All he did was clarify what he meant by saying his rule provides for an opportunity to exploit a crisis in order to do things you wouldn't otherwise be able to do.

Uh, Rahm, that's what the left is doing with the shootings. There's already talk of gun control legislation and Fairness Doctrine resurrection. His inability to draw that distinction is troubling. The only thing he could do to help the situation is to vehemently and publicly chastise and denounce those on the left - by name - if he truly believes his rule is being applied wrongly in a mass murder.

So far, I haven't seen him do that. Here's the video of him responding to the question about whether he agrees with the application of his 'never let a crisis go to waste' rule. He gives the politically wise answer whether he believes it or not but validation of that belief would be a public display and dressing down of the operatives in his own party who are using his rule now.
