Rahm is Qualified

  • Chicago mayoral contender Rahm Emanuel got the big boost of a Bill Clinton visit Tuesday, basking in public praise at a rally and counting campaign cash raised behind closed doors.

    The former president said Chicago is "critical" to the nation's future and needs "a big person for the job" of mayor.

    "Rahm is not even 6 feet tall. He probably weighs about 150 pounds dripping wet," Clinton said of Emanuel, who served him as a top White House aide. "But in all the ways that are important, he is a very big person. He has made big decisions."
So he's like Shortshanks-lite? With a mean streak?

It's nice to see his rivals bringing up some dirty laundry finally:
  • Two candidates for mayor used former President Bill Clinton’s visit Tuesday to suggest that Clinton’s plum appointment of Emanuel to the board of government mortgage giant Freddie Mac means Emanuel shares some blame for the nation’s foreclosure crisis.

    Emanuel “sat on his hands, looked the other way and took the cash” when presented with an “Enron-style” scandal at Freddie Mac, said challenger Gery Chico, who is expected to be endorsed by Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police today.

Maybe someone will bring up the millions Rahm made from shady utility company deals when he was helping them out for a mere year or so. Must be nice to be connected and be able to roll in the dough.

Of course Clinton says Rahm's qualified. Clinton taught Rahm all of his grifter ways. Clinton had a net worth of less than $500,000 prior to his presidential election. Today, he's worth over one-hundred million dollars. Not bad for eight years of Oval Office time.

Clinton appointed Rahm to the board of Fannie Mae. Hey you hard hitting journalists, find out how Rahm made his money!

Not sure bringing in Clinton was a good political move. If people think you MAY BE an outsider and a non-resident, why would you bring in a REAL outsider to try and boost your campaign?

Only the weak minded and politically uneducated will be impressed by Clinton stumping for Rahm... unfortunately, that covers the bulk of Chicago's voters!

I liked Clinton as a president. (I don't care about his sex life; I'm talking about his abilities as a president.)

That being said, I don't give a rat's patoot who he endorses or stumps for. I can determine for myself who I want to vote for.

And, Rahm, it's not you.

With the Clinton endorsement the president who bold faced lied to us about Monica and many other things great to be endorsed by him lol! Talk to people who have been around rahm and they will tell you what a mean little man he is! Watched the debate with the kids asking questions rahm had no clue,and that racist delvalle was stating "the police in the neighborhoods should reflect the residents race"! He is out,and old carol has so much money due she has no clue looks like Chico is not the best choice but is the only choice!

Moseley Braun: Clinton 'betrays' blacks, Latinos

"President Bill Clinton does not live or vote in Chicago," said a statement issued by her campaign. "He's an outsider parachuting in to support another outsider. For him to come on the day following Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday to insert himself in the middle of a mayoral race, when the majority of the population and mayoral candidates are African American and Latino, is a betrayal of the people who were most loyal to him. It's a mistake."

You're wrong Phil. Clinton didn't teach Rahm anything. Clinton's campaign was in disarray before Rahm showed up and taught Clinton the grifter ways.

As for Clinton's net worth, that's easy. Any president can make a ton of money after leaving office. You're talking minimum $100k for a speaking engagement, book deals, etc, etc. President may not pay all that much compared to a corporate CEO job, but the money gets made up afterwards.

#1 Register to vote.
#2 Get your family registered. Spouse, parents, kids, aunts, uncles, etc.
#3 Get your friends registered.

If WE are not registered to vote, then WE are powerless.

Will Rahm still be a resident when Burke's wife on the Supreme court hears the case? I'm thinking no way.

Given Bill Clinton's wink-wink, you-betcha-buddy moral character, it was nauseating to listen to this near-pornographic "endorsement." The only thing missing was a couple of pole-dancers twining around Emanuel, saying "Ooh!" and "Aah!"

Clinton has just done what most others in the political class have done while in office and immediately after, enrich themselves. One way or the other, through law firms with government contracts, bond deals, insurance, real estate deals, security firms, etc. etc. Nothing new here. The middle class tax payer gets it in the neck every time and pays for these people to live a very good life. And, yes, I am referring to the cook county board, the park district board, the chicago alderman, the state reps and senators. None of these jobs should be pensionable and they should have term limits.

I believe that Rahm E. is about as truthful as a used car salesman and the morals of an adulterous ex-president Clinton! Fish anyone?!

He is no better than Mayor Daley, who spent too much time in office and basically screwed up the city finances with his goofy gimics of privatization and losing Olympic bid! We are quickly becoming the laughing stock of this country due to the highest taxes and fees in the United States!

Anyone but Rahm, another young Daley disciple!

Thanks Mayor Daley!

Yeah, and if you thought it was hard to follow (let alone prosecute effectively) before, just wait until everything starts moving through a labyrinth of offshore banks, "holding companies," etc.

George Soros alone could buy Chicago and flatten it for tennis courts; I think the only reason he doesn't is that he enjoys laughing at the futile efforts of the little people who wait for buses and save pennies in jars.

We are kind of like a giant Ant Farm to these people, something for their entertainment -- if they think of us at all.
