There must be a crisis somewhere that he doesn't want to go to waste.

Update!...

White House Dismisses Emanuel Quitting Report as 'Ludicrous'

Quote:
The White House Monday dismissed as "ludicrous" a report that Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel plans to leave his post after becoming frustrated with the Obama administration.

Citing Washington insiders, British newspaper The Daily Telegraph said Emanuel was fed up with the "idealism" of President Barack Obama's closest advisers and was concerned about burning out and losing touch with his three children due to the pressure of the job.

In response to the report, a senior White House official told Fox News the "ludicrous" story was "not worth looking into."

The Telegraph, however, quoted a Democratic source as saying: "I would bet he will go after the midterms. Nobody thinks it's working, but they can't get rid of him -- that would look awful. He needs the right sort of job to go to, but the consensus is he'll go."

Congress veteran Emanuel, 50, is known as an abrasive pragmatist who has clashed with the optimistic inner circle around Obama.

Although he is believed to have a cordial working relationship with the president, The Telegraph reported Obama aides were frustrated that Emanuel "failed to deliver a smooth ride for the president's legislative program that his background promised."

The newspaper said Emanuel had told friends he envisaged the high-pressure White House role as an 18-month job. He is reportedly interested in running for mayor of Chicago, his home town.

President Barack Obama's chief of staff, then a congressman in Illinois, apparently attempted to trade favors with embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich while he was in office, according to newly disclosed e-mails obtained by The Associated Press.

Emanuel agreed to sign a letter to the Chicago Tribune supporting Blagojevich in the face of a scathing editorial by the newspaper that ridiculed the governor for self-promotion. Within hours, Emanuel's own staff asked for a favor of its own: The release of a delayed $2 million grant to a school in his district.

The 2006 discussion occured with Blagojevich's top aide, Deputy Gov. Bradley Tusk, and doesn't appear to cross legal lines; Emanuel couldn't speed up the distribution of the funds. But it offers a peek at ties between two high-profile Illinois politicians — one now the president's right-hand man, the other facing years in prison if convicted of political corruption.

Discussion of the exchange could come up at Blagojevich's corruption trial, currently under way in Chicago. Blagojevich, who is accused of plotting to profit by selling an appointment to Obama's former Senate seat, also tried later that year to use the school grant in an extortion attempt against Emanuel, according to federal prosecutors.

Not only that, but if the Republicans take the house in November, it's a guarantee that Rep. Issa is going to be in charge of making investigations on Emanuel over the Sestak stuff since the Dems are blocking it now...

I posted something about what Issa said and I believe it could backfire on republicans bigtime because the people are getting sick and tired of each party playing gotcha as soon as they regain control of congress. And, they are really sick and tired of it when the accusations fly and in the end no one is charged with wrong doing.

The people want their government back, they don't care which party it is as long as they, (the people) are listen to!

The first party to say OK let's get to work and really reaches out to everyone will win the day.

Just something I have been thinking about!

News of Rahm-Obama Split Identical to Trotsky-Stalin Reports
"Baffled by the eerie resemblance of the two documents, some experts predict that the uncanny parallel may indeed develop ... "



A previously unknown document, extracted from the Party archives in Moscow and dealing with Trotsky’s departure from Stalin’s inner circle, has made news today because it accurately mirrors Monday morning’s news story about Rahm Emanuel’s planned departure from Obama’s inner circle. Except for the names of the government officials and locations, the verbiage in the Soviet article seems to be identical to that in today’s
New York Post:

Rahm will quit Obama post: report - NYPOST.com



MOSCOW – 1925 Kremlin Chief of Staff Leon Trotsky is expected to quit as soon as this year because he’s fed up with the “idealism” of Joseph Stalin’s inner circle, a British newspaper reported early today.

“I would bet he will go after the midterms,” a Kremlin apparatchik told the Telegraph. “Nobody thinks it’s working, but they can’t get rid of him — that would look awful.”

The apparatchik added that Trotsky is trying to line up the right job offer to explain his departure, but “the consensus is he’ll go.”

Speculation in Moscow has been building for months about divisions between Trotsky and other Stalin confidantes.

Trotsky, who has more experience in the Kremlin, has embraced tough tactics balanced by realistic compromise. But others in the Politburo have urged the use of Stalin’s soaring oratory to break through the gridlock to win major victories in their agenda. Both strategies have largely failed, leaving Stalin with only half the collectivization initiative he wanted, ballooning debt, and record-low approval ratings.

Trotsky, whose bare-knuckled politics earned him the nickname “Demon of the Revolution” when he worked in Lenin’s Politburo, is expected to step down in six to eight months, the paper said.

Despite his good relationship with Stalin, Trotsky and the Great Leader have come to an understanding that their starkly different styles don’t work together, sources said. Their closest advisers are known to have clashed — including butting heads over health-care reform — and Trotsky’s rough style has caused friction.

“The Russian people have not stood behind Stalin in the way they did for the czars and that was meant to be Trotsky’s job,” the apparatchik told the Telegraph.

In response to the report, a senior Politburo official told bourgeois news agencies the “ludicrous” story was “not worth looking into.”

I didn't write the artical, the New York Post wrote it.

I just think it's interesting how the Lame stream media is now starting to publicly compare the communist regime of today with the one from the past, but you seem to have a problem coming to grips with the fact that this country is being taken over...
