Rahm Emmanuel seems to be the one pulling Obammie’s puppet strings. Is Emmanuel one of Georgie Soros’ butt boys or what?

Can we get rid of the slime before the change over? Oops, there wouldn’t be anyone left.

Was going to post this somewhere else, but that article needs some serious editing.

That being said, I hope it’s true.

Unless money actually changed hands, could he really be arrested and charged?

I heard about him whining about the media’s treatment of him today. I find it amusing that he can’t take what he dishes out to other people...wasn’t he the person who sent that pollster the dead fish?

Rahm Immanuel is a party gauleiter, a Brownshirt who earned his stripes in the service of the Clinton Crime Family. His allegiance is to whatever criminal mastermind offers him the most. He has no scruples. He would have shoved his own parents into the gas chambers had he been offered sufficient lucre and power.

Yes it was strange. He apparently allow someone from the media into his house to use his bathroom. Then began to unload on the media guy with complaints about how they were hounding him Sounds like a setup...Don’t understand the scenario at all.

“Is Emmanuel one of Georgie Soros’ butt boys or what?”

Rahm Emanuel and George Soros are both heterosexual, with 3 and 5 children respectively.

There’s plenty in their politics to criticize, but no reason to believe they are gay, or have sex with each other.

Stay out of the political gutter, please.

He’s hiding out from the media, but allows one reporter into his house to use the bathroom ... riiight. That reporter was likely known to him as sympathetic, and a little alone time to rant prevented any other inconvenient questions, allowing his spin to be put out there without interference.

I don’t think this will get much traction for two reasons:
1- *ANYONE* coming out of, or even in contact with, Illinois/ Chicago politics is not only dirty, but a corrupt, shiv wielding S.O.B. That’s like saying an NBA basketball player is tall; no surprise there to anyone but the most dense and isolated voter, to say nothing of journalist. “Chicago Pol involved in corruption” = “Dog Bites Man”.
2- the chief of staff of the POTUS is supposed to be a down and dirty S.O.B. The guy who does the nasty stuff so the President can keep his hands clean, claim ‘plausible deniability’ and be a nice guy.

Realistically, is there any way a Senator could avoid having some political intercourse with the governor of their state? Obama’s smart enough to distance himself from the dirt, and have several fall guys; I also think he’s smart enough to not risk his neck over the small potatoes of selling a Senate seat when he could probably get 100x that much from his base with a request via a mailing list, especially when he’s already moved on to the much bigger prize.
It’s nice to see them sweat, and good to let them know they are under some scrutiny, but my guess is that if anything this is a distraction from something we AREN’T supposed to see happening right now, like a magician making you look at the other hand. But then I’ve been wrong before:-)

Yeah. He’s even allowed to be a contemptuous SOB of a father but on the flip side he’s a public servant too. The obots need to know who they really voted for too. ;) Come clean Blago!

Well, other than that shady deal with Rezko, possibly brokered by Patty f'in Blagojevich, and other than Michelle getting that cush paid board position ... are really you sure he's smart enough? Looks to me as if he thought it was his due, and he'd never be called on it. He's been protected from consequences by various patrons all his life, so why wouldn't he think this way?

You and I must have a different definition of butt boy. Let’s see. Ass kisser, flunky, toady, lackey and things along those lines. That’s where I was coming from. Still. The political gutter.

Imagine Life Without Consequences as a Chicago Democrat. If I say anymore, I'm gonna start sounding like John Lennon.

If you are aware of a felony and do not report it, you are guilty of a felony. So, if Rahm even knew the governor was soliciting bribes and kept quiet about it, he is guilty of a felony.

If Blags and crew were Republicans, you'd know the answer.....arrested, charged, convicted and executed.

I’s love to see his arrogant ass frog-marched off to a Federal Pen.

“butt boy” is a nice little insult that doesn’t usually have anything to do with somebody’s sexual persuasion. It’s essentially the same as “butt-kisser”.

It’s not being stupid. Just business as usual in Chicago land politics. For those who think this whole situation is just a one-time mistake, I have some ocean front property for sale.
