Sarah Palin Wants Rahm Fired

Are You Capable of Decency, Rahm Emanuel?


The newly-released mind-boggling, record-smashing $3,400,000,000,000 federal budget invites plenty of opportunity to debate the merits of incurring more and more debt that will drown the next generation of Americans. Never has it been possible to spend your way out of debt. So... let the debate begin.

Included in the debate process will be opportunities for our president to deliberate internally the wisdom of this debt explosion, along with other economic, military and social issues facing our country. Our president will discuss these important issues with Democrat leaders and those within his inner circle. 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.

A patriot in North Andover, Massachusetts, notified me of Rahm’s “retarded” slam. I join this gentleman, who is the father of a beautiful child born with Down Syndrome, in asking why the Special Olympics, National Down Syndrome Society and other groups condemning Rahm’s degrading scolding have been completely ignored by the White House. No comment from his boss, the president?

As my friend in North Andover says, “This isn’t about politics; it’s about decency. I am not speaking as a political figure but as a parent and as an everyday American wanting my child to grow up in a country free from mindless prejudice and discrimination, free from gratuitous insults of people who are ostensibly smart enough to know better... Have you no sense of decency, sir?”

Mr. President, you can do better, and our country deserves better.

Rahm Apologizes for Privately Calling Liberal Activists "Retarded"


Jack Tapper

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel apologized to the head of the Special Olympics today after the Wall Street Journal reported the fiery Chicagoan privately called a group of liberal activists "f---ing retarded."

Last August, Emanuel "showed up at a weekly strategy session featuring liberal groups and White House aides," the Journal's Peter Wallsten reported. "Some attendees said they were planning to air ads attacking conservative Democrats who were balking at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul. 'F—ing retarded,' Mr. Emanuel scolded the group, according to several participants. He warned them not to alienate lawmakers whose votes would be needed on health care and other top legislative items."

A White House official confirms that Emanuel made the remark and reports that Emanuel called Tim Shriver last week when the Journal story first appeared to apologize to the disabled community and the apology was accepted.


Wild Thing's comment........

I had no idea Rahm had even said this..WOW..what a disgraceful, disgusting comment to make. Good take down by Sarah. She knows lecturing them gets deep under their skin.

Rahm Emanuel - the nasty ballerina.

This is the second time the White House has offended the Special Olympics.

And this quote of his happened last AUGUST. He's only now apologizing? It shows his heart. If he were sincere he would have apologized last August, but now that he got called out he's apologizing solely for political expediency's sake. Pffft.. Thanks to Sarah for laying into him.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Hey, good deal when even some Democrats are angry at obama's chief of staff. I hope both Emanuels get the hell out of the power group.

He's a Chicago thug. Just because he took ballet lessons doesn't mean he's a nice person. He's not. He's the heavy hitter for this administration. If the mafia needed a hit man, he'd be a perfect pick. He should be ashamed. My grandmother taught those with handicaps how to sing and perform in and around the Peoria, IL area for so many years. They are the least deserving of a slur. Rahm needs to grow up and get over himself!

With all due respect to Sarah, when the Commiecrats are infighting, why intervene? These are moments to sit back and have some popcorn.

I don't believe that hit man stuff. I've always found the ones who talk the loudest are the most frightened of Life itself.

He's such a bad ass he cut his own finger off. I don't think that makes you tough it makes you sort of stupid. He's a little man with even smaller ideas. I guess that's why he fits in so well with this administration. Had he been in the service he'd have been kicked out with a Section 8. This is a sick little man.

Rahm is a homo and I tend to believe his commiecrat brother Ezekiel is one as well. Hell, this whole administration are friggin fags.

Darth, oh wow that is great, thank you for sharing about that and also for the link too.

Tom, I agree, little by little, like you said there are dems talking about things they do not like about Obama. whew it sure has taken long enough.

Lynn, that is so wonderful, thank you for sharing about your grandmother.

Curmudgeon, yes that is the best way to do it. I wonder if she did not know there already had been something done about it. She did a great job though. I love how she sets her sites and takes no prisoners when she does. heh heh

Mark, bullies are like you said. And it would be fun to see him cringe and cowar in a true talking down he would get. It would be soooo good to see.

Eddie, Obama has the throws aways of humanity with all the Mao worshipers and communists and people that hate America. Yes, he sure knows how to pick em'.
