CHICAGO In Washington, he is Rahmbo, the ruthless, profane operative who survived the Clinton White House despite being vanquished by the first lady. In Chicago, Rahm Emanuel has been dubbed the murder mayor by one critic, a snipe at the citys high homicide rate.
In Washington, hes the campaign mastermind who reportedly mused about a 2016 presidential run if Hillary Clinton takes a pass. In Chicago, hes the ham-fisted gentrifer whos been tripped up by the citys entrenched racial politics.
In Washington, hes the star of the CNN series Chicagoland a careful keeper of his image whose office helped coordinate the show. In the real Chicago, a city known for its mobster history, his tough-guy veneer just isnt as intimidating.

In the hearts and minds of true men...he is the consummate assclown.
And in freeperland he is ...
In Washington he could blame any mis-steps on the Republicans....There are no Republicans in Illinois.
(Rahmbo was also COS while at Treasury---the multi-tasking little devil.)
Rahm Emanuel takes over Chicago / May 16, 2011
EDITED EXCERPT .... an exciting time in the inbred world of Chicago Democratic politics.... Democratic don, Richard M. Daley ruled for 22 years, inheriting the mayoralty from his father, Mayor Richard J. Daley who held on for a generation. Now the ex-chief of staff of Chicagoan Barack Obama (once a state Senator, now president) was installed. US Treasury Secy Tim Geithner was there, and so was Chicagoan David Axelrod, an O team player.
BTW, Mayor Daley's former chief of staff, Valerie Jarrett, hired Obama's wife, Michelle, to work in Chicago City Hall. Jarret is now ensconced as Obama's chief policy advisor. In Chicago gangland parlance, "chief policy advisor" means "wire-transfer artist".
Mayor Emanuel's innovative ways commenced early on---his organization was getting $50G's for the best seats at the inauguration (mmmm........that accounts for another couple million scammed from Treasury).
The mayoralty (and its--cough--"benefits") is a job Emanuel has coveted since he was a machine go-fer back in the 1980s.....before he became Bill Clinton's national campaign finance chairman and then a dual role as senior White House aide and Goldman Sachs lobbyist and then (gasp) becoming a multi-millionaire, thanks to a measly few months at a local investment firm...then a (gag) Congressman for four terms---then White House chief of staff for Obama that helped create the 2010 Republican House landslide.
HOW THE WALL STREET TYPES MAKE MONEY DISAPPEAR When he went to jail, investigators found Bernie Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities. Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers that, to unsuspecting outsiders, seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances......the purpose of this complex architecture was to direct money to Madoff sans scrutiny and to generate more fees.
And let's not forget Rahmbo's brothers: Dr Zeke---the lamebrain behind the Obamacare monster. And the reason why Rahbo got a reality show...his bigshot Hollywood brother, Ari, described as the pre-eminent power player in Hollywood.

BACKUP---October 11, 2011 ---- Police Chief Regina Evans Resigns
COUNTRY CLUB HILLS, Ill. (CBSLOCAL.COM) Country Club Hills Mayor said that negotiations were underway to clear the way for the resignation of police Chief Regina Evans, in office for about two years,
<><> Regina Evans was on (ahem) disability leave since August 2011,
<><> it was earlier reported that Illinois AG's office is suing Regina Evans' n/p over its handling of state job training grant worth more than $500,000.
<><> Evans also signed off on invoices for a controversial summer camp where the campers including children of aldermen who voted for it got paid to attend (Chicago-way--"redistribution of income").
<><> Most recently, Evans came under fire for overseeing a 2011 part-time police program where 10 part-time police officers were hired.... bur that many had questionable backgrounds, and werent qualified to do police work. They were ordered to turn in their guns and badges (got high-paid city sanitation jobs).

"My Brother's Keeper" scam rears its ugly head in Washington.
WASH/POST---Community lenders network commits to lend $1 billion in support of Obama's My Brothers Keeper / By Zachary A. Goldfarb, March 6, 2014
A network of (ahem) community lenders is committing to lending (?) $1 billion in support of President Obamas My Brothers Keeper initiative that aims to boost the life chances of young African and Hispanic men.
Yawn.....just goes to show: there's always a sap-happy Dem/Lib willing to say they're "for" their fellow-man---and conniving to make a buck on it.
You are right. No where to run and hide. No one to blame. I find it funny that this turd is still being talked up how good he is.
You know, I know the congress critters will never move to take the poser down, but what if we the people filed a RICO case against the Democrat Party?
Rahm’s “people” in the media basically tore the Black Political establishment a new one in his mayoral race. At one time the black political establishment had competent grifters high up, but today blacks are left with dementia cases and black power idiots. The “wildings” in the rich areas of Chicago are not spontaneous demonstrations of violence they are the black political establishments way of striking back at Rahm. Enjoy it Democrats, you deserve it.
“Rahm Emanuel: D.C. hero, Chicago goat”..
The author left off one important thing....”Democratic Jackass”.
Emanuel knows nothing about street-level Chicago - he’s a suburban twerp, he grew up with the swells, and has about as much connection to city folk as Pontius Pilate had to the residents of Judea.
Old man Daley was Democrat slime, but he was a real Chicagoan, and lived his entire life as a resident of Bridgeport, a blue-collar neighborhood. His kid Richie was Democrat slime, but at least he grew up in Bridgeport - then once he hit the big-time as mayor moved to up-scale Printer’s Row. Rahm is just plain Democrat slime - he lives in one of the few safe neighborhoods left in the city, sends his kids to private school, and wouldn’t know what to say to butcher or a taxi driver if his life depended on it. He claimed the mayor’s office as his reward for engineering the Democrat takeover of congress, and Chicago politics being what it is, the Machine could’ve put Sasha and Malia into City Hall if they wanted.
The teacher’s union hates him, the cops hate him, the blacks hate him, the Hispanics are starting to hate him, and the ethnic whites don’t identify with him in the least. The schools are as bad as ever; shootings are up; and the mini-rioting of wildings are getting harder and harder to hide. But the papers are in his pocket, the Machine still knows how to use clout, and most of the everyday folk are so apathetic and beaten-down that I expect Rahm will be reelected, even if an attractive black candidate emerges.
Being an ingenious political slime merchant does not translate into your being capable of actually running anything.
