    that anyone who let Emanuel turn them into a mediocre leader wasn't such hot shit to begin with.

      anyone who would have done the right thing, but then, after listening to some centrist advisor, changes their mind and is "turned into a mediocre leader" is useless.  Worse than that: a weaked-minded fool to be so easily controlled.

      Show me on the doll where Rahm touched you.

      •  either a "weak-minded fool" or he's a liar (5+ / 0-)

        Either Obama was successfully pressured by Rahm to going back on some of his core campaign promises, or Obama never believed in those core campaign promises to begin with.

        Which means his whole campaign in 2008 was a lie.  The Obama Defense Force should be the first ones throwing Rahm under the bus, because it's better that Obama was "fooled" than selling snake oil.

        I'm a part of the reality-based community, not the personality-based community.
