I’m still transferring posts over from blogger. I thought I’d post this one from November 6, 2008. The video was taken down from you tube. It was funny but not exactly flattering. And from a different post comes this quote from the Trib’s Mike Dorning & Christi Parsons dated Jan 19, 2007. The article concerned who Emanuel was going to endorse – Sen Clinton or barry.
In fact, several Illinois Democratic operatives who are drawn to Obama confessed to a bit of early trepidation about lining up behind the senator because of concerns that an alliance would provoke vengeance from Emanuel, a famously unforgiving politician.
Makes one wonder where they are and who they are aligning themselves behind. I’m curious what the non-Illinois proobamedia will think of Micheal Madigan. You want cronyism look at dad & daughter — Speaker of the House & Attorney General. Dad hates Rod and daughter wants Rod’s job.
And they will be the ones cleaning up corruption??
November 6, 2008
Funny how people are commenting on Rahm Emanuel as “someone who gets things done” and someone who promotes bipartisanship.” Gergen came the close by saying he’ll be the bad cop to barry’s good cop – same as his campaign was. He’s a foulmouthed, aggressive politician of the Sipowicz brand.
[Here's a Rahm for VP video.]
1 – Barry would trust only a Chicago politician to get that close to him.
2 – He owes a great deal to Chicago and Illinois politics and you can bet there are more to come.
3 – Rahm Emanuel is Jewish
4 – He was a Senator Clinton supporter, if only by name.
5 – He was a President Clinton operative.
7 – His name matches the Messiah theme.
Then add whatever you want after that. The question is how he will use Valerie Jarret a former Daley aide and close friend of Mrs barry. And Colin Powell, who was so reprehensible to his fellow friend, Republican and Vietnam Vet. Say what you will about what he actually believed and thinks about barry he totally dissed Senator McCain by not calling him and that was scumminess at the highest level.
People were attacked – including every one of barry’s opponents for being racists but not a single barry supporter has been scrutinized as to their vicious treatment of Sen & President Clinton and Gov Palin & Sen McCain. Those people showed themselves to be not only disloyal – but also cruel and vindictive.
No old Washington?
barama matthews says barry is a “new type of politician”.
He is – a Chicago politician who is more vicious and unscrupulous than anything you’ll see in Washington.
Some people have woken up and some are still deluded in their cocoon of denial – barama matthews – who thinks barry is completely clean and guilty only of proximity.
What is it going to take?
