Rahm Emanuel in the NYT Magazine

The media is giving Rahmblr -- the single-topic blog on Rahm Emanuel published on the Tumblr platform -- a run for its money.

The latest story about the president's chief of staff comes from New York Times White House reporter Peter Baker, a former Post White House correspondent. He has penned the upcoming New York Times Magazine story, "The Limits of Rahmism."

Baker sets up the moment Emanuel is facing:

The stupid season has arrived for Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel, the unlikely tandem of inspirational leader and legislative mechanic that was supposed to enact the most expansive domestic program since the Great Society. After the debacle in Massachusetts that cost Democrats their supermajority in the Senate, Washington has engaged in a favorite exercise, conducting the autopsy before the body is actually dead. How had it come to this? How did the president's legislative drive drag on for so long that the surprise loss of a Senate seat could unravel it? Did Obama make a mistake by disregarding his top adviser's counsel? Or was it Emanuel who failed to execute the president's strategy? Was it both, or perhaps neither?

Read the whole thing.

If no one has commented........it is because it is on the last page...if it was in print at all.............

Why have things not got done??

Good question ...Obama has a year with a Democrat Congress....LOL...

He thought these guys with a lot of book knowledge could just walk in and tell Americans how it was going to be and it would ......."be".........

Not in America...and if the jam this Health Care .....they will lose big time.

This administration thinks that we don't know why Andy Sterns was put on the Labor Board or why they wanted Craig Becker....we know.

They can't run anything, look at how they rob Peter to pay Paul....and have made us slaves to China.

I don't want them to run anything for me.
I tried for 3 hours to reach someone in Fema today....you talk about a mess....not one person could help me...I finally had to get online and write a letter. They are not worth one dime.....they have lost records that I faxed to them last year,and now we receive a notice that we need flood Insurance... and we settled that last year, but they can't find the records so now I have to go through everything I did last year and prove that I do not need flood insurance........what a mess. "this is your Federal Government...."stinks"

Unions are running the White House...
,,,,,,,,, "we see"


This latest story with Massa and Rahm naked.....LOL

They can "trash" Massa all they want to..
We will know why they are doing it..."it want work"

The Dems are just having a great year, bet they wish it was over....what is coming next ???

I look for Nancy to go off the edge soon.

She looks like a wild woman.

I am really enjoying this...I guess because this bunch of young bucks that think they know everything are showing just how much they don't know...LOL
