President-elect Barack Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, refused to take questions from reporters this morning about whether he was the Obama “advisor” named in the criminal complaint against Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The complaint states Blagojevich wanted a promise of a high-level appointment or some other reward for Blagojevich in exchange for Blagojevich naming Obama’s friend Valerie Jarrett to replace him in the U.S. Senate.

Well, well, well. What do we have here?
I heard tough boy (Rahm) then pushed his way by the reporter. I think Mr. F U Emmanual is going to be in a heap of trouble before this whole Chicago thing is over.
Thugs, thugs, thugs.
Hey Rahm...........STAY AWAY FROM THOSE STEAK KNIVES, will ya?
You seem to like people DEAD!!!! (who don’t agree with you around).
hmmmmmmm, so Rahm is playing up his dady role to appeal to the “people”
Perhaps he'll be run out of town on a rail.
Blagojevich said, He asks me for the fifth CD thing, I want it to be in his head. Emanuel represents the 5th Congressional District in Illinois.
Ok, how much did Rahm pay Blagojevich for that 5th CD?
how does anyone in there right mind think that a obama aide b would go rogue and do this with out pres elect zero not knowing. if people believe obama had no knowledge i got a igloo for sale in the desert for sale!
Obama isn’t even elected and already his administration is immersed in scandal.
If the MSM had done its job, we’d have at least a vetted Pres-elect (McCain or Clinton). Now, the economy is tanking, and the Pres-elect is finally being vetted.
BFD. OBAMA refuses to take questions from any “reporters” not on his Official Reporter Suck-Up List. The press whores don’t seem to mind!
Mr. Emanuel, you would have made Golda Mier anti-Semitic. Congratulations.
his words to the press trying to interview him sure sound TERSE for a man who should be relaxed and happy with a clear conscience attending a school program with his children in it....oh yeah, that’s right-he hasn’t gotten a lawyer yet;any lawyers left in CHicago that can handle his case?must of just done run outta’ lawyers out there.
Asked, Cant you do both? Emanuel replied, Im not as capable as you. Im going to be a father. Im allowed to be a father, and he pushed the reporters digital recorder away.
The words of a coward, hiding behind his children.
I suppose he's going pull a Daily and suggest he did the dirty dealing to help provide for his children.
Ok, now it all makes sense :^)
