  •  Not ONCEhas Rahm attacked the Right with the (16+ / 0-)

    fervor with which he attacks the left.

    Time to fire Blue Dog Rahm or let the Obama Admin get dragged down by his bullshit centrist crap. (Which I do NOT want but will come of things of Obama keeps taking Rahm's crap advice)

      It would be bad form for Barack to fire him this soon as Rahm gave up a promising congressional career to join the WH. And given how Lieberman has behaved, pointing fingers at anyone else would not fly ...

      Too bad.

        if I don't cry a river for Rahm Emanuel's great personal sacrifice.

        He got to be White House Chief of Staff for a year, a job that usually only keeps people for two years anyway. He won't die an anonymous Congressman, and he could easily go back to the House in future and resume his career anyway.

        Not firing someone who's doing a really bad job "because they gave up so much to take the job" wouldn't fly at any company in the world. It shouldn't at the White House either.
