Axelrod, Emmanuel Leaving WH For Chicago

From a concerned CBS News:

Axelrod Leaving WH; Emmanuel Likely Next

By Bill Plante
September 23, 2010

(CBS)  President Obama’s inner circle will likely be losing some key players. CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante reports that sources say David Axelrod, the president’s closest advisor, will move to Chicago next spring.

Axelrod is expected to reassume his role as campaign manager in Mr. Obama’s 2012 reelection bid.

A job he has never really relinquished. After all, getting Mr. Obama re-elected has always been job number one. And the country be damned.

A potential, if not likely, replacement for Axelrod is current White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

That is reassuring, is it not? If ever a person just shouted ‘competence,’ it’s Mr. Gibbs.

The dominoes don’t stop there. Rahm Emanuel, the president’s Chief of Staff, may leave the White House as soon as next month.

Emanuel has told colleagues that he’s very likely to run for mayor of Chicago, and that could see him depart the White House in October

You would think that a former ballet dancer would not be a natural fit for ‘the hog butcher of the world, the tool maker, the stacker of wheat, the city of big shoulders.’ But apparently times have changed.

Besides, Carl Sandberg also noted in the same poem: “And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true.”

    Rahm the Impaler isn’t hard to understand…..he apparently is a conventional leftist loon who is more into wielding power than he is into implementing marxism and destroying the country. In other words, in the mold of Clinton rather than Obamy.

    But Axelrod is more interesting. My hunch is he simply can’t steal enough money as a White House advisor…at least in real time….and needs to get back to Chicago where he can stuff his pockets will illegal lucre for a year or so.

    I cannot stop laughing at this! LOLOLOLOLOLOL! :D

      I’m thinking he may very well shout “competence”, but he’ll have to get back with you later after checking with his sources to be able to tell you what it means.

    Of course this is all staged, we know. The WH is already anticipating the November results in the voting booths, and Barry’s handlers are trying to mold him into a Clinton/Truman character, always pitted against Congress (might we even hear the poor little man-child utter Willie’s famous “I’m still relevant” refrain?)

    When Axelrod et al have left, we will see headlines trying to stoke sympathy for the professor, saying, “All Alone, In A Hostile World”, and such. Get ready for the “intimate” interviews from Diane Sawyer, Catie Curic, etc, asking the in-depth questions of him, such as, “How do you put up with those GOP meanies?”

      I’m having a good time imagining what Obalmy is feeling right now…after Deadfish and Axie helped push Obalmy to the end of the plank…and since the seas are getting rough…they are running like h*** leaving Barry boy to weather the storm all by himself.

      When things get tough…they run like the dickens.

      Just when Obalmy needs support from his “supporters” the most, they throw him under the bus… “See ya!”

      If he is popular…a “god”, the person the world has been waiting for…they are up his arse.

      If, on the other hand, he loses his popularity and when all their grand plans are exposed and their game plan is circling the drain….Gone!

      I think they call this type of friend…fair weather friends.

      Does a heart good to watch it all unfold.

    It looks like Jesse Jackson Jr. is the 1st causality. Where did they get the blonde bimbo?

    Steve – love the picture of the Three Wankers, aka The Gay Caballeros.

    As for Axeldork’s and Rhambo’s chances for winning? I’d say they’re pretty good: they know where the bodies are buried, and, (drum roll, please) They have ACORN ready to stuff ballot boxes and do what they do best – cheat.

    It just galls me to no end that that vain, arrogant and utterly profane creature carries the name of Emmanuel. From the Hebrew it translates as ‘God with us.’ Is that nauseating or what?

    Emanuel a typical replacement for the very evil Richard Daley that Michelle worked for.
    Says a lot about her.

  9. TwilightZoned says:

    I heard an interesting take on this by Dick Morris. He seems to think all are getting out while the gettin’ is good. In other words, all these useful idiots can make more money getting out early of what they know will be a one-term president. If they wait until the end they’re more negatively connected and this will hinder their ability to stuff the old pocketbook.

    My first thought was these people are being put into place for crap ‘n tax (aka – cap and trade). There’s a Chicago bank already set up for carbon exchange. Axelrod, Emmanuel and company stand to make millions off this scam if it ever comes to fruition.

    • proreason says:

      Agreed. See my first post in this thread.

      They can make their money now. In 2013 it will be much harder as humiliated ex-capo’s.

      Few from Carter’s disgraced administration made millions, but lots from Clinton’s. That’t the difference between being booted out on your ass and winning a second term.

      By walking, all of the criminals are signalling that they agree the gig is doomed. They have to grab as much as they can NOW.

    Whatever will the grateful nation do without these very intelligent, useful, and important patriots in Washington?

  11. Mae says:

    Years of brainwashing have rendered the Chicago populace incapable of making reasoned or ethical decisions. Rahm is their ideal candidate on paper, but somehow I can’t see him winning. Some other corrupt politician is just around the corner, you know it, who will take what’s left of the Chicagoan heart.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Makes this one wonder why they won’t let the citizens wield their Second Amendment Right.
      Probably because only criminals have rights?
