Emanual Refuses To “Buck Up” and Leaves Washington

October 4, 2010

WASHINGTON — Rahm Emanuel got a grand send-off from the White House  as he begins his run to become Chicago‘s next mayor.

Speaking from the East Room, President Barack Obama welcomed reporters to “the least suspenseful announcement of all time.” Confirming what has been widely reported, Obama said Emanuel was leaving the White House “to explore other opportunities.”

The president called it a “bittersweet day at the White House” and said he was losing an “incomparable leader of our staff.”

“He just brings an unmatched level of energy and commitment to every single thing he does,” Obama said after embracing Emanuel before a cheering White House assembly.

In a nod to the political sensitivities of his move, Emanuel never directly mentioned that he was running for mayor, and Obama didn’t touch that, either. Emanuel, sure to be cast as an outsider by his competitors in the upcoming mayoral campaign, did not want to announce his run from Washington.

Emanual refuses to “buck up” and stay in Washington. Time will tell if his decision to run for mayor of Chicago and deal with Blaggo corruption issues will be a major “f*ck up”.

Sestak Problem..Rahm May Get Rammed.. Back Up The Bus

May 26, 2010

If a Democratic member of Congress is to be believed, there’s someone in the Obama administration who has committed a crime – and if the president knew about it, analysts say it could be grounds for impeachment.

“This scandal could be enormous,” said Dick Morris, a former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, on the Fox News Sean Hannity show last night. “It’s Valerie Plame only 10 times bigger, because it’s illegal and Joe Sestak is either lying or the White House committed a crime.

“Obviously, the offer of a significant job in the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared with Rahm Emanuel,” he said. If the job offer was high enough that it also had Obama’s apppoval, “that is a high crime and misdemeanor.”

“In other words, an impeachable offense?” Hannity asked.

“Absolutely,” said Morris.

The controversy revolves around an oft-repeated statement by Rep. Sestak, D-Pa., that he had been offered a job by the Obama administration in exchange for dropping out of the senatorial primary against Obama supporter Sen. Arlen Specter.

Rahm may get rammed. Bus Stop Walking…
