Massa: Rahm is 'son of devil's spawn'

Massa: Rahm is 'son of devil's spawn' By Eric Zimmermann - 03/08/10 10:03 AM ET

Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) is taking some harsh parting shots at the White House on his way out of office.

Massa, who is stepping down amid allegations of sexual harrassment, said that Emanuel is a ruthless tactician who would "sell his mother" for a vote.

"Rahm Emanuel is son of the devil's spawn," Massa said in a radio interview. "He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive."

Massa also accused Democratic leaders of forcing him out of office because he had voted against healthcare reform.

"This administration and this House leadership has said, quote-unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this healthcare bill," he said. "And now they've gotten rid of me and it will pass. You connect the dots."

The New York Democrat has said he's retiring due to a recurrence of his cancer, but the House Ethics Committee has also opened an investigation into allegations that he sexually harrassed a male staffer.

I don’t think Rahm has the goods on enough closeted Democrats to blackmail them all into yes votes but I’m sure Democrat opps researcher had a busy weekend. BTW where’s the outrage over this outing from Bar -nay and the media?

Was sure I could and glad to find story here as link is broken at Drudge. . .

No question; just like communists/fascists, including Islamic fascists. ..everywhere; 'purge' is Party MO for those who stray.

Totalitarianism is a 'beautiful thing', no?

Obama has started the political purges to consolidate power. This is a very common occurrence in dictatorships and revolutionary governments. Imagine Rahm Emmanuel as heading Obama’s purges just like Lavrentiy Beria did for Stalin.

This is the beginning of the end of the presidency of Obozo. He is going to be suprised when his enemies come at him and from so many places.

There are some people walking this Earth who just seem to be void of a human soul.

Rahm is one of them.

Obama warned Gov. David Paterson of NY not to run for governor again. See what’s happening to him?

“Imagine Rahm Emmanuel as heading Obama’s purges just like Lavrentiy Beria did for Stalin.”

If Rahm indeed is playing this role, he might do well to remember that Beria himself eventually was purged after he’d poisoned Stalin.

"I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me."

That sounds like sexual harrassment to me.

Rahm is toast. Here is something to spread on him:

Moore wrote Obama that Rahm Emanuel had "turned into a fighter -- not of Republicans, but of the left. Democrats have been in charge for over a year and not one banking regulation has been reinstated...there's no universal health care. The war in Afghanistan has escalated. And tens of thousands of Americans continue to lose their jobs and be thrown out of their homes."

Mmmmmmmm.........Moore forgot to mention all the Kennedy's dropping out of politics. Ohaha is going down in history as a Camelot killer.

MICHAEL MOORE: Democrats are 'going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions'
The Hill By Tony Romm, 03/07/10
FR Posted by Sub-Driver

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday railed on Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, predicting, "Democrats on Election Day 2010 are going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions if things don't change right now."

In an open letter to the White House, Moore placed the blame for Democrats' dismal electoral prospects in 2010 squarely on the shoulders of Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, recently a popular target for liberals dissatisfied with the White House's handling of healthcare.

While Moore praised the sitting chief of staff for long being a "no apologies, take-no-prisoners fighting machine," he ultimately said Emanuel had "turned into a fighter -- not of Republicans, but of the left." "Well, you and the Democrats have been in charge now for over a year and not one banking regulation has been reinstated.

We don't have universal health care. The war in Afghanistan has escalated. And tens of thousands of Americans continue to lose their jobs and be thrown out of their homes," Moore wrote. "You're such a good guy, Mr. President," Moore added. "Yet, you kept on saying you still believed in bipartisanship. Well, if you really want bipartisanship, just go ahead and let the Republicans win in November. Then you'll get all the bipartisanship you want."

Consequently, Moore later implored President Barack Obama to "replace Rahm with me." He subsequently offered to serve as chief of staff for $1 a day, while living in the White House basement. "Now, don't get too giddy with excitement over my offer, because you and I are going to be up at 5 in the morning, 7 days a week and I am going to get you pumped up for battle every single day," Moore continued.
