Rahm Emanuel: Mayor America (Paid Advertising No Doubt)
FT ^ | 2/14/14 | Luce

Posted on 02/15/2014 1:18:03 PM PST by mgist

Has the mayor of Chicago reinvented the city’s notorious political machine – and does he covet the White House?

When Rahm Emanuel became mayor of Chicago in 2011, he proclaimed: “I will not be a patient mayor.” It was an understatement. The former chief of staff to Barack Obama returned home with a near-legendary reputation for his take-no-prisoners style of operating. That is how he acquired the nickname “Rahmbo”. He once famously mailed a dead fish to a pollster with whom he had fallen out. There are few significant Washington figures who have not felt the lash of his tongue. In Emanuel’s lexicon, the word “f***” is almost an endearment. Emanuel, 54, lost half a middle finger in a kitchen accident when he was a teenager. It was an amputation that – in Obama’s unforgettable phrase – rendered him “practically mute”.

Daley said that he would not for mayor if Rahm wanted too. Rahm leave BO staff job. Daily retires, Rahm win;s election, Daley’s brother then becomes chief of BO staff..does this stink only to me??

Only Obama could say such a thing.

Then again, Biden is well-capable of it.

~~~He once famously mailed a dead fish to a pollster with whom he had fallen out.~~~

Sounds like misusing the USPS for terrorism, or at least political terrorism / harassment.

Never underestimate the Chicago Mob.
If they decide Rhambo is the one instead of Hillary, they’ll get him elected.

The Gambino crime family wishes it had an organization like Chicago to rule over .... Rahm’s got it all.
