White House Insider: Pelosi and Obama at War
NewsFlavor ^ | October 7, 2010 | Ulsterman

Posted on 10/07/2010 4:31:09 AM PDT by maggief

Nice to see you again – so you indicated you were given the “green light” to shed some more personal details regarding past events involving members of the White House and Congress. Who gave you that green light?

I won’t say anything more on that specifically beyond simply stating that this individual is no longer burdened by the requirements of their position at the White House. So yes, I was told I could speak more freely now, and that is what I intend to do. I’m happy to do it in fact. And I’m happy to see some more people quietly coming forward also.

Well, you do realize that what you are describing points a very possible finger at Rahm Emanuel, right? He has just left his position at the White House.

That is your position, not mine – and don’t expect me to clarify it.

(snip)

Rahm Emanuel left the White House willingly, but he was also under strong suggestion to leave. He has not been a dominant figure in the West Wing for some time now.

He was the White House Chief of Staff – how could he not have been a dominant figure? He has been marginalized. Pushed aside. Even his direct access to the president was reduced more recently. It happens. There is always an ongoing fight to gain the ear of the president. Rahm lost that fight, and now he is gone. If he hadn’t left, I am certain he would have been forced out, which would have been no easy task because the guy is a fighter.

Who marginalized him?

Good question.

Thank you – but do you have the answer?

Sure… (clears throat) It was mainly three people. Valerie Jarret, David Axelrod, and Michelle Obama.

Obama and Pelosi at war,,,, hell hath no fury than a woman scorned....
Pelosi out of spite could very well tell the world who put her up to it to certify Obama on the DNC certification, and who put her up to signing it... that is ? if this White House insider is trustworthy and is telling us the truth.

I’m not sure The One can handle the stress. He’s never had to endure much pressure his whole charmed life.

He’s about to crack up (IMO) and he’s still surrounded by “friends”.

Wait ‘til he’s faced with a hostile congress, Darryl Issa’s investigations, further anger from both the base and independents... psychologically, he may cave in. Or blow...

FWIW:

http://newsflavor.com/politics/world-politics/white-house-insider-obama-battling-severe-depression/

Just prior to the midterm elections, a significant figure within the party is going to break out and talk publicly to the media about much of what has and is going on both at the White House and Congress

Think about this for a while!

The day Vera Baker was sent into exile by Moosechele, Obama changed. His was no longer as happy, as open or as engaging. Obama knew Vera cared FOR HIM and would direct him with his best interest at heart. Moosechele is ruthless and directs Obama with a cattle prod!

I find it interesting that the “most powerful man on earth” is being or has been jerked around by so many women (Mom, Grandma, Oprah, now Michelle, Valerie, Nancy, Hilary). It really helps to have a Dad around during your formative years, doesn’t it?

Mayhap Rahm was the only voice suggesting that MO's antics/vacations/shopping sprees/parties were hurting the pristine image of the 0bama Administration.

The Beverly Hillbillies lived more modestly than she.

----------------------------

Right, could be we see a 'Great Purge' along the lines of Stalin's in 1936-1938 (purge of the Party ranks). I think Hitler's was in '34 - it included business leaders, I think.

I’m appalled that the White House treated her in such a way. I’m appalled at how this White House has treated so many Democrats. It is simply unacceptable. So if Speaker Pelosi finally decides to fight back and fight for Democrats against the Obama White House, yeah – I respect that. I respect it a lot. Good for her. I sure as hell don’t blame her.

Very good read. If true...this is very good news. It means they got rid of the guy who was actually trying to give them some good political advice...and elevated the people who are running BHO's little ship into the rocks.

That means there for SURE won't be any Clinton readjustment after the midterms (not that I expected it from a narcissist)...and BHO will continue to be a policy disaster.

2012 here we come. With an almost 2-1 Dems up for reelection in the Senate...we could easily get 60 votes.

Hillary vs Sarah vs any other candidate debates will be extremely interesting. Hillary took the Sec of State position for many reasons and this is one of them. She will come out strongly favored in my opinion (By the azz kissing Media). I don’t want to get flamed BUT She’ll have the media and the creds....
I can’t stand the hag for what it’s worth...I’m just sayin...that is my initial perception after reading this which by the way is an amazing read.

I want to know who this person is...

One comment which was not followed up is why the source thought the lame duck session would be so interesting. Hasn’t it been agreed that no legislation would be rammed through?

Good people, good Democrats, are being tossed aside like so much trash – and this White House DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN. In my eyes that is absolutely unforgivable. You just don’t do that to your own people. And some of these politicians are talking. They are – but for the most part the media is ignoring them because they don’t want to hurt the administration. To that I say enough! Do your damn job. Report what is going on within the Democratic Party. We need to clean up this mess, and it starts by getting the truth out there. That is my motivation.

I posted emphatically on FR weeks ago that Rahm didn't resign, he was thrown under the bus!

But everyone wanted to buy the canard that he quit because he wanted to be Da Mare of Chicago. Now this article bears out what I was saying.

Furthermore, Rahm will never be mayor of Chicago despite the media hype going on in the Windy City at the moment. If the current mayor isn't for ya, you're a dead lake smelt....and he ain't for Rahmbo.

Yup, you did.

A couple questions ...

Why did RE (or Axelrod?) float the mayoral trial balloon back in January?

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2421418/posts

And, who or what caused Daley to not seek reelection?

I don't think anyone can answer your first question....YET.

As to why Mayor Richie Daley is not running again...in my opinion, it's a combination. His wife has cancer of the bad kind. Being mayor of one of the world's major cities is all-consuming in the time department.

Plus, Chicago is desperately broke...and potentially volatile consequences lie ahead in this diverse and heavily-unionized city.

Probably a minor, but telling event in the political career of the Mayor is the fact he couldn't bring the Olympics to his city. He was emotionally invested in the effort. When it fell apart, I think, to some extent, so did he, inwardly at least.

It sort of took the wind out of him. It was to be a capstone to his political life and also to the Daley dynasty. His father would have been proud of him....but it was not to be. Nor would another run for the mayorality be in his future.

Not many...alive.
