See ya around Rahm....(I think he’s had enough)
Well, it'll certainly be interesting to see if the ballerina can make this stick.
Stupid is as stupid does...
I don't understand. Just after he was elected, Barry S. promised us his administration would be DIFFERENT...
I'm pretty disppointed right now. All I can say is my faith in my moral and intellectual betters has been severly shaken...
I mean, who could POSSIBLY have foreseen that president Barry S. would turn out to be just another sleazy politician?
Who, I ask you? Who?
Maybe he was scouting Israel for another job.....LOL! (I don’t think it will work it too well for him though....;)
I'm beginning to hear apologists say that at worst Obama's actions are just misdemeanors. I don't think this gets Obama off the hook. The Constitution lists "treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors" as the basis for impeachment. It seems to me that whole issue of felony/misdemeanor distinction does not apply to bribery but to another class of misdeeds. My reading of the text suggests that bribery on any criminal level can lead to impeachment.
It’s certainly true that prosecutors will happily forego prosecuting little fish if they’ll rat out bigger fish to fry. In that regard, Emanuel seems quite safe.
But there’s no way he’d throw Obama under the bus unless he thought it was safe to do so. That is, it won’t do Emanuel’s political career much good to be seen as taking down a promising president. The more honorable thing would be to fall on his sword and protect his master etc. But if Dems in Congress want Obama out of the way, perhaps Emanuel is grooming himself for returning to the House and finally getting what he really wanted out of life: to become Speaker of the House, elected by grateful Dems who wish to reward the man who saved their party.
Unfortunately, it’s too late for that.
Rahm Emanuel better not board any planes soon, klinton will fix this.
Worth a ping?
It looks as though I have my answer as to which way he will go.
Obama can try to throw Rahm Emanuel under the bus but it looks like Rahm knew to cover his own @$$ with Obama. Wasn’t there talk that he wanted to run for Governor of Illinois or something like that?
Rahm seemed perfectly ready to help Obama throw Israel under the bus. But maybe he’s having second thoughts.
It can’t be pleasant to visit the wailing wall in the company of his son, who is just coming of age, and having to have an armed guard because most Israelis hate his guts.
If Obongo throws Rahm under the bus he knows Rahm will make sure he chews him up and spits him out. Rahm isn’t going down unless he takes him with him. If I were Rahm, I would be watching my back.
