CHICAGO Mitt Romney, in his bid to retake the momentum in the Republican primary from Rick Santorum with a win next week in Illinois, arrives in Chicago on Friday. But the citys mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel - couldnt wait to rip into the GOP front-runner, saying Romney lacked the fortitude, strength or character to serve in the Oval Office.
Now Im not going to give advice to Republicans. They dont take it and I dont want to give it. Theyll make whatever decision they want to make, Emanuel said at an event Thursday morning in Chicago. You just take a look at the fortitude, the strength, the determination and the vision the president made on the auto industry and juxtapose it to Mitt Romney, who doesnt have the fortitude, the strength or the character in my view to stand up to Rush Limbaugh. How can he stand up and make a decision to save 1.3 million manufacturing jobs?
A reporter followed up by pointing out to Emanuel that Bill Maher had made comments that some people found as insulting as Limbaughs. Limbaugh was ripped by liberals for insulting Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, while Maher has caught flak from conservatives for remarks he made about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
I thought what Rush Limbaugh said was absolutely not only wrong, it was absolutely repulsive, Emanuel said.
That said, if you cant stand up to Rush, how are you going to stand up to Russia? And I just dont see it. Im just telling you, having advised two presidents, and I think Im very fortunate, it takes fortitude in the Oval Office, it takes strength, it takes determination,

Aww. Ballet Boy's Tender Effin' Sensibilities were offended.
Sounds like the Dems have got the lines for the next act of their play.
You know, deep inside of him, Romney really does want to lash out at Limbaugh. He’s juuuuust smart enough not to do so.
Says Rahm, as he wistfully harkens back to his days of “Plies” “Tights” and “Tutus”.....p@ssy.
Rahm Emanuel: Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha... whoa.... hahahahahahahahahaha hahaha... ohhh ha.
And it is so true.
An odd thing for a party to say which has far more ties to the leftwing lunatic media than Mitt Romney could ever hope to have with Rush, isn’t it?
Rush never committed manpower and material to kill Americans in Korea and Vietnam. Russia has the blood of a lot of Americans on its hands.
Screw you Rahm.
That Rahm can really pirouette.I saw him dance in SWAN LAKE. He moved like a duck.
I didn’t know that was Romney’s job. I’m no Romney fan, by a damn sight, but my retort might have been,
“Your mouth’s as dirty, if not dirtier, and we still let you speak. I know the 1st amendment is under heavy fire from Mr. Obama right now, but if you vote for me Rahm, I’ll make sure you can continue to cuss all you want, Rush too.”
So NOW Russia’s an enemy to stand up to?
If Barack has to bow to the Saudi king how is he ever going to stand up to Bill Maher
Well, if anyone appreciates things that are repulsive, it’s got to be Rahm. What a jerk.
Vote with my dollars between elections.... Rush an his sponsors get a few of my votes if the leftist looneys are fraid of him.
Yeah right, and Mr. Obama is a real tower of strength.
He’s a tower of jello.
I thought all you had to do is bow and apologize. Mitty can probably handle that.
