Emanuel To Mitt: Stop Whining About Our Lies

From ABC News:

Rahm Emanuel to Mitt Romney: ‘Stop Whining’

By George Stephanopoulos | Jul 15, 2012

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said this morning on “This Week” that presumptive GOP nominee for president Mitt Romney should “stop whining” about attacks on his Bain record and just defend himself.

“What are you going to do when the Chinese leader says something to you or Putin says something to you?” said Emanuel. ”I give him his own advice. ’Stop whining.’ Defend — if you want to claim Bain Capital as your calling card to the White House, then defend what happened to Bain Capital.”

Wasn’t Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff for much of Mr. Obama’s first term, during which Obama constantly whined about all the bad things he inherited from Bush? Or did we dream all of that?

And isn’t Rahm Emanuel the current mayor of Chicago who has been whining to the gangbangers about their lack of values? Who has been begging them to leave the kids alone?

“He said ‘CEO, sole shareholder, president.’ You can’t — as president of the United States you can’t have a sign on your desk that says, gone fishing.’ You can’t put that on that desk. It’s basically the buck stops there,” said Emanuel. “You can’t say to the SEC, ‘I was the CEO, chairman and president, but I’m not responsible. I’m not accountable.’”

Mr. Emanuel is either a liar or an ignoramus or both. If you resign from the management of a company you are not responsible for the activities of that company, even if your name is still on some of the paperwork. It is really that simple.

But Mr. Emanuel’s knowledge of the business world is limited to his very brief stint at Freddie Mac, in 2000-2001, at the height of their corrupt practices. Emanuel was given a do nothing job on Freddie Mac’s board as a “going away gift” from Bill Clinton, according to Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times.

During his very brief sojourn Mr. Emanuel pocketed over $250,000 “in director’s fees” for his expertise in mortgages and housing. He was then given generous contributions from Freddie Mac when he ran for Congress, where he magically ended up on the very House committee that oversaw Freddie Mac.

And yet, even though he was on Freddie Mac’s board of directors and then on the committee overseeing their activities, has he ever accepted any responsibility for their activities which led to the housing crisis? And has he taken responsibility for Chicago becoming the murder capital of the world? — Of course not. He is a Democrat.

By the way, there was an even larger conflict of interest that Ms. Sweet pointed out in the Chicago Sun-Times back on Aug. 14, 2003. Rahm Emanuel sat on the subcommittee that had oversight of Freddie Mac at the same time he had outstanding options for 2,500 shares of Freddie Mac. And yet he has the chutzpah to chide Mitt Romney who has had his finances in a blind trust since 2003.

But for some odd reason all of Mr. Emanuel’s recent past has been forgotten by our one party news media. In the same way they have forgotten about Rahm Emanuel’s close association with Ron Blagojevi

    A little light in the loafers to be making such manly comments, eh, Rahm?

    Was tough guy naked or toweled when he spoke.
    Jesus this guy is as filthy as they come.

  3. untrainable says:

    Oh come on Rahmmy! The whaaaaaaaambulance makes daily stops at the White House. No president in the history of this country has spent more time pointing fingers and whining about EVERYTHING being someone elses fault. But as Obama is so famous for saying … “The Buck Stops There… not here… It’s not my fault… Republicans are holding up our change. Everyone is either hyperpartisan, or just plain racist. Give me a break.

  4. Rusty Shackleford says:

    What’s never mentioned is that R.E. is the kind of guy who has no talent for anything and his projection-ism is what reveals his lack of ability. In other words the very things he points out that Romney is alleged to be doing is the very thing he and his kind do on a regular basis. Kind of hard to put into words but by definition, Romney’s accurate assessment of what the left is doing makes the left respond against the right as “whining” when, in fact, the complaint is legitimate. That is, the left really is whining while the right really is accused of things that bear no legitimacy.

    But that’s how they play their game. That “see how you like it” made-up BS way of quibbling that only five-year-olds and childish national socialists do.

    *sigh*

    So, we can count on any time the national socialists are held to account, they will play an equally childish game, rather than being held to account and that makes me say, the only way to defeat such behavior is to violently destroy it. You can’t win the psychological game because they are begging for you to hit them. The only other alternative is to ignore them but they never quiet down. If anything they keep getting louder until they get their way.

    Which, of course is what they want. The Saul Alinskey bet-wetter attention-getter mentality.

  5. Right of the People says:

    I’m hoping once Romney officially gets the nomination that the gloves come off. I for the most part despise the hatemongering style of politics that Barry the Bozo and his posse excel in however I just hope the GOP holds nothing back this fall.

    To me that was McLame’s biggest mistake four years ago. He had plenty of ammo like the “Reverend” Wright BS and Barry’s record of actually lack of and never used any of it. If he had he might be sitting in the White House now and the country wouldn’t be crashing into the crapper. What is it with the damned Republicans anyway? They get spit on and lied about and they end up either doing nothing or even worse trying to defend themselves against obvious lies and half-truths. I’m waiting for the classic, “So when did you stop beating your wife?” style questions to begin.

    It’s time for the Republicans to grow a pair.
