Well, that would finish off the country ... Rahm Isreal Emanuel from the corrupt Chicago political machine. Bush43 then Obama then Emanuel. Yep .. that'd do it. People are speculating on him running for POTUS if Hillary doesn't run, or perhaps running for VPOTUS with Hillary.

Washington Times - Speculation on Rahm Emanuel Running for POTUS in 2016


The take-away suggestion: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is seriously being groomed as a White House contender. “Maybe in the lead role, maybe the running mate. Hey, he’s already been in the White House anyway,” one strategist said to the other.

Indeed, Mr. Emanuel, 54, was senior policy and strategy advisor for President Bill Clinton, and appointed White House Chief of Staff by President Obama. Similar rumors have surfaced about Mr. Emanuel for three years, and from major news organizations. He has so far dismissed the idea he’d run.


Basic Emanuel Information
Democrat. Mayor of Chicago since 2011. Worked with Bill Clinton and Obama. Worked for the investment bank Wasserstein Perella & Co. from 1998 to 2002 and served on the board of directors of Freddie Mac. He was in the US House of Representatives. His family has worked as union organizers in Chicago. And obviously, he's part of the Chicago political machine (YIKES).

Judicial Watch 10 Most Corrupt Politicians 2010

Rahm Emanuel, Former Obama White House Chief of Staff didn’t earn the nickname “Rahmbo” for being a mild-mannered shrinking violet. He served as Bill Clinton’s chief money-man at a time when the Clinton campaign was corrupted by foreign money. He defended the “worst of the worst” Clinton scandals, and, in fact, earned his reputation as a ruthless political combatant by fiercely defending President Clinton in the Monica Lewinsky investigation. (Notably, Emanuel also served on the board of Freddie Mac when the company was involved in fraudulent activity.)

The bottom line is that when the Clintons’ dirty work needed to be done, Emanuel did it and apparently without question. That didn’t change under Obama. Remember when the Obama White House wanted to manipulate Democratic primaries in 2010? Emanuel teamed with his then-Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina to allegedly interfere with Senate elections in Pennsylvania and Colorado by offering federal appointments to Rep. Joe Sestak and Andrew Romanoff. Sestak and Romanoff were not Obama’s favored candidates, so Emanuel and Messina apparently attempted to unlawfully persuade them to abandon their campaigns.

A Judicial Watch complaint to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel on June 15, 2010, tells the story: “As widely reported in the media, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina, on behalf of the Obama Administration, have both used their position and influence as highly placed federal employees to affect the outcome of federal elections in direct violation of the Hatch Act, which states that an employee may not ‘use his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election.’”

And then, of course, there’s Emanuel’s participation in the Blagojevich scandal. According to sworn testimony during the “Blago” trial, Emanuel served as Obama’s chief negotiator with the Blagojevich team as the former Illinois Governor attempted to illegally sell Obama’s former Senate seat to the highest bidder. Unfortunately, the federal prosecutor cut short the case against Blagojevich and Emanuel and other Obama insiders were never called to testify.

Emanuel left the White House under an ethical cloud and has decided to throw his hat in the ring for Mayor of Chicago, where he again stands accused of ignoring the rules and violating the law regarding candidate residency requirements.


Chicago Area Called Most Corrupt in the USA

The Chicago area is the most corrupt federal jurisdiction in the United States, having averaged 51 public corruption convictions each year since 1976, according to a new report. Emanuel, meanwhile, say his refusal to release internal records related to controversial policy initiatives are working against the perception that things are improving.


Now a little something for those on 'prophecy watch' to have fun with ....
Rahm means - High or Lofty
Isreal means - Israel
Emanuel means - God is with us.

Do the Moonies still own the Times?

With an article like that, I wonder. He has as much of a chance as Chris Christie, I guess.
All of the speculation in the media keeps the eyes off the action, or lack thereof, of the current executive and legislative branches. A lot can happen in a year...and due to primaries creeping ever earlier on the calendar, candidates have to start campaigning in mid 2015. Not before then. You'd think half of these people would seek to keep there names OUT of the headlines or else people might start to dig into their pasts.

I can tell you from living the land of corruption, Chicagoans are up in arms about his fiscal reforms in the city.

They are ready to give him the boot.

If they think they can get another hood from the corrupt Chicago political machine in office, I'd bet you'll see the unions and the mobsters and the rest suddenly go on a campaign for the guy. Both Hillary and Emanuel have strong Chicago ties. I don't think they'd turn their back on a Clinton/Emanuel ticket.

Instead of these conservative groups worrying about people have not made any announcements about running for president wouldn't they be better off using their time finding someone in the GOP that is actually worth running for office? Or do they want to wind up with someone like Romney that has no chance of winning.

I don't usually agree with you, but this time I do.

You have a point. A valid point.

There are 350 million (+/-) in the US. We can't get a single one out of that lot that isn't corrupt, a moron, a lackey, a shill for whatever political PAC that pushes him/her?

Grab a phone book, a dart, and we'll have a better chance of finding someone than either party has put forth.

You know very well that Republicans and Democrats BOTH speculate on who will be running and who won't. Emanuel is being speculated on, and for good reason. Same with Hillary. Same with Chris Christy. Same with Ted Cruz. There is a lot of speculation and it's natural to do so.

Pretty dang sad, isn't it? I'm looking at the 'speculation list' for both the democrats and the republicans .... YIKES. Tons of corruption or incompetence .. or both. And the people that could do a good job can't get near public office because they aren't 'rock stars' with a catch phrase ('Yes we can') or they don't have the $$$ or the family connections or the corrupt influences to buy a spot.

As I have said on another thread recently.

Rahm also translates as "Godlike"
Israel
Emmanuel translates to "God among us"

My comment was on page three on the above thread.

I notice that you tried to slam the sources .... but you didn't argue with the information presented.
What is your reason for the deflection attempt?
Do you like Emanuel or are you perhaps sticking up for the dems for some partisan reason?

Which brings us to the Israel connection. WIth a Rahm Israel Emanuel as POTUS or VPOTUS ... what would that mean for our relations with Israel? With 'Muslim countries'?? Would it matter? Should we care what they think??

I wouldn't let what they all think change how I'd vote.
This is the USA and we vote for who we want .. not who they want.
But not everyone thinks that way.

Something tells me that Hillary wouldn't live long if he was her VP.




Well, that would finish off the country ..

If we aren't already.
I hate to be pessimistic, but we haven't reached the end of Obama's tenure yet.

Why would he want to run for President? He has far more unchallenged power as mayor of Chicago.

The mega salary for life. The perks of the office. The notoriety. The fame. The illusion of being the most powerful person in the world. The White House chef. Free travel around the world to any destination you want. Airforce One at your beck and call. All that free unending golf. The thrill of having your own posse of secret service agents who would (supposedly) take a bullet for you. I'm sure all that is very tempting for some folks.

A legislature that opposes your every initiative. Foreign leaders who threaten you. A media you cannot control. Mayor of Chicago comes with absolute control of a well oiled political machine. It is a much cushier job.

Newsmax - Emanuel

In the past month, Emanuel has:

• debuted in CNN’s Robert Redford-produced reality series Chicagoland

• been featured in this month’s Esquire magazine “with lots of prose about how Emanuel ‘inherited’ most of Chicago’s ailments. (Hint: It’s not his fault!),” according to Kelly

• sat with New York Times columnist David Brooks for a Brookings Institute live-audience forum to discuss how Chicago policy has innovated under Emanuel’s tutelage

• penned a full-page article in the Chicago Sun-Times trumpeting the Windy City’s “inspiring digital future;

• appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon to take the annual “Polar Plunge” in Chicago’s frigid temps.

And later this month, Emanuel will join billionaire Sam Zell as a featured speaker at Steve Forbes’ “Reinventing America” summit where he will discuss the heartland and topics such as “cheap energy, innovative manufacturing and job creation.”

The good news is it doesn't matter who gets elected, the bad news is it doesn't matter who gets elected.

Sure. But the Chicago Mayor job also comes with a mob hit being just a pen stroke away ... ya' know?
The allure of the illusion of power of the Oval Office can be intoxicating.

You know Flyers, when a nation only have trash for politicians it means that the whole political system is run by nothing but trash, If Billary, Christy and now this new one Emmanuel is all Americas politics have to offer as the possible candidates to the highest and most prestigious office in the nation it means that we as a nation have fallen into nothing but trash status.

Because that is all those politicians have in common nothing but corrupted trash class.

This is what private interest money is buying this days to run the nation in their behave.
