Emanuel: White House not 'amateur hour' Jon Ward (Contact)
Defending the White House in the wake of Sen. Judd Gregg's withdrawal as Commerce Secretary, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said it is not "amateur hour" and that the Obama administration is still doing better than President Clinton was at this point.
"Some may call it amateur hour. Having been in two separate White Houses, I'm more than and within our third week given this set of accomplishments measure them up," said Mr. Emanuel, who served as a senior adviser in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 1998.
Mr. Gregg, New Hampshire Republican, withdrew his nomination nine days after it was announced. The senator cited "irresolvable conflicts" over their conflicting positions on the economic recovery bill and on operations for the 2010 Census.
Mr. Emanuel said winning passage of the $789 billion recovery spending bill Congress is rushing to beat a weekend deadline for getting the bill to Mr. Obama will overshadow the bumps.
"I think the president has always indicated there will be days where there are setbacks, days where there will be disappointments, but as long as we're moving forward those will be bright days not just for us but in fact the American people, he said. "Let's be honest: will the economic recovery or Judd Gregg be a bigger discussion point a week from now?"

“White House not ‘amateur hour’”
Try “Year of the commies...”
Wanna second opinion?
Never mind, I’ll opt to continue posting here for the time being....just use yer imagaination
So you’re saying you sucked at your job then?
Actions speak louder than words, Ballerina Boy.
And if it’s not Amateur Hour, why do you feel the need to go on record denying it’s Amateur Hour?
they control the house, senate and the white house. and the are still having trouble getting bills passed. the ones they do are only done through lies and deceit.
yeah thats leadership. /vomit
Methinks the Rahm doth protest too much.
I can’t think of a time when I was more proud of my senior senator. Jugg, you done the right thing, and I appreciate it.
so let me get this straight
compared to a complete screw up the last time this one is only slightly better ...HAHAHAHAHAHAH
let me also point out on a really serious issue — his learning lesson the last time caused the death of 18 heros in Somalia...are we looking at a slightly less of a screw up this time...what 15 lives?? is that considered better...
these guys are floundering around in the WH...
a telepromter reader and a guy who feels using a paragraph from his cv about major screw ups from the death of soldiers to the lying under oath of a president...wow one can only imagine how much ‘better’ it will be this time...
I was thinking more in the line of Cartoon Hour. See, you have Obama and Hillary. It’s like a bad Disney movie— Bambi and the Beast — only there ain’t no happy ending. The warm up to the main show is Rahm as Wile E. Coyote - Super Genius. I’m just hoping this isn’t a double feature.
Hey Al Capone, who you trying to fool...?
Hey Rahm, an hour I could stand, 4 years will kill us all.
I wonder how much Gregg owes in back taxes?????????????
It seems like a lot of people are shying away from Zero because he is too radical.
The circus has come to town and the clowns are in control. Cotton candy and confetti for everyone. Unfortunately for obozo, the audience is not amused.
Was it ever determined to whom he was making that face?
Zero is surrounded by Clintonite pros yet still stumbles around like a clown. Something still smells funny and I think it’s ole Crusty.
