Jake Tapper asks the WH mouthpiece if it’s time for this President to “man up” and make the tough decisions rather than making no decisions at all so he can win at the ballot box:
I would ask the president to show decency in this process by eliminating one member of that inner circle, Mr. Rahm Emanuel, and not allow Rahm’s continued indecent tactics to cloud efforts. Yes, Rahm is known for his caustic, crude references about those with whom he disagrees, but his recent tirade against participants in a strategy session was such a strong slap in many American faces that our president is doing himself a disservice by seeming to condone Rahm’s recent sick and offensive tactic.
The Obama Administration’s Chief of Staff scolded participants, calling them, “F—ing retarded,” according to several participants, as reported in the Wall Street Journal.
Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the “N-word” or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.
I believe myself that Emanuel should of been sacked long ago for many different reasons, many of which Bush and his advisers would of been vilified for. But not this President, and not his keepers.
One thing that is bringing a smile to my face tho is that the hardcore leftists are making life difficult for his administration. Obama came into office with all these grandiose promises of socialistic change but many months later realized he can’t do what he promised or he will lose at the ballot box. He choose preservation of power and now both sides are of the aisle are kicking him to the curb.
Gotta love it.
