Rahm Rips Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Brings Up Campaign Gaffe

CHICAGO — Mayor Rahm Emanuel gave Rick Perry a Chicago-style greeting Monday, challenging the Texas governor to remember the reasons for his visit to Illinois — a jab at Perry's presidential debate forgetfulness.

"I hope when he comes he remembers all three of his reasons," Emanuel said. "Because it will be a real test for him."

Perry was in Illinois Monday to encourage businesses to move to Texas and was scheduled to address a Chicago business convention Tuesday.

Emanuel made pointed reference to a campaign gaffe Perry committed while running for president. At a Republican debate late in 2011, Perry said he had plans to eliminate three federal departments, but could remember only two.

Asked about Perry's visit at a Monday news conference, Emanuel used the opportunity to tout Chicago's infrastructure improvements and wealth of well-educated residents thanks to its universities, both of which he said were lacking in Texas.

He pointed to the 14 major businesses that have moved their headquarters to Chicago during his administration, and also drew attention to Texas' drought....

Taking potshots form a distance... sounds like Rahm is suffering from Short Man’s Syndrome.

I wonder how many more of Holder’s people died in Rahm-ago this last weekend?

Yawn - another day, another dozen shootings in the city of gun-free zones.

Three reasons, Rahm? Taxes, taxes, and more taxes.

They relocated company headquarters to Chicago for one reason only. That being the epicenter of union bribery. If you don’t want your plant to have labor issues in Toledo Ohio, your bagmen and negotiators strike the deals in Chicago. Rahmbo and company get their cut.

I laugh at all his faux mafia tough guy act. He cusses in front of little White House intern girls, walks up to argue with congressmen in the shower,,,buck naked. He sends a dead fish to someone?

This is a ballerina homo ACTING the way he thinks tough men act. The truth is he cannot order a “hit”, he inspires no fear, and his only “power” is to use connections to power to intimidate others. (the equivalent of getting his big brother to come beat you up)

Gay gay gay ,,,

Agree. Who the hell wants to live in Chicago, much less have a business and their employees there? With the likes of the mayor, the entire crime ridden city, plus the unions cost up the ying yang-why stay? Rahm-Go on welfare with your pals. Chicago is a joke from those I know. They want out of Chicago.

Maybe Perry can convince Springfield, ArmaLite and Rock River to move to Texas.

I was having a little fun with it, wondering if quacking in your boots was anything like talking into your hat, lol.

We all make typos, I’ve seen some hum-dingers. Might as well have a good time, lol.

Rahm Emanuel is an AH, but Perry running all over the country begging for jobs is a bit much.

BTW, watch what ya ask for, or you'll have 10,000 twenty story pink apartment buildings across those Texas plains and a Muslim owned 7-11 greedymart on every corner...

7-11, like many other large companies, is home-based in Texas. Dallas, in this case.

7-11?

The greedymart company who forbids they're help to protect themselves...Then fires them when they do attempt to do so.

Enjoy!

After Rahm was elected, I elected to forego my annual trip to Wrigley Field for a couple of Cubs games...didn’t want to spend any money (taxes) in Chicago.

Semper Fi,
