Not surprisingly (at least not to us rational folks) Barack Hope N' Change Obama has selected Rahm Emanuel as his White House Chief of Staff. Emanuel is a Chicago politician and former member of the Clinton White House.
It would appear that the man is exactly the kind of guy the real Barack Obama wants on his side. Obama, despite his rhetoric, has proven to be your usual Chicago politician. Ignorant, arrogant, intolerant, unwilling to compromise, and downright nasty to those who don't share his worldview. Quelling free speech with the NRA ad fiasco, Obama "Truth Squads," telling his supporters to "get in the face" of fellow Americans etc. etc.
We saw some of the real Barack Obama during the campaign, and now that he's President the choice of Emanuel is true to Obama's nature as a politician. Emmanuel has a reputation as a nasty, uber partisan asshole who's a proponent of Chicago style "dirty politics." He's exactly what Obama wants, a tactless, classless politician that'll do his bidding while allowing Obama to keep his own hands clean. If you're a Democrat maybe you can liken him to Karl Rove?
You are a reflection of those you surround yourself with. Does this sound like someone a man espousing values of hope, change, unity, and tolerance would appoint? Does it sound like the kind of guy you'd appoint if you really believed your BS campaign promises of bipartisanship and "reaching across the aisle with Republicans?"
"At a dinner to celebrate President Clinton's first election victory, Mr Emanuel began to name those who he believed had earned his enmity. As he listed the names of those he saw as traitors, he grabbed a steak knife, stood up and began plunging the knife into the table and shouting "Dead! Dead! Dead!" after each name."
Stay classy Rahm Emmanuel!
As many of us already knew, Barack Obama is a liar, and his idea of change isn't anything of the sort. Obama and Emmanuel must surely know a thing or two about "Liberal Tolerance." Funny to see the parallels between the far left blogosphere's actions vs. words and those of our radical Marxist President.
