Rahm Emanuel for 2016 Presidential Bid!

According to the Washington Examiner, 2016 Democratic-Candidates.org, Frontpage Magazine, The Daily Beast and more, Rahm Emanuel is either toying with or being groomed for a White House run in 2016.   


From the Washington Examiner:

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.

Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that Mr. Emanuel is now being showcased in CNN’s gritty new weekly documentary series “Chicagoland,” which is produced by Robert Redford and began Sunday.

“I have a high regard for Rahm Emanuel. It is not an easy job. To manage a city like Chicago with so many disparate parts to it is not an enviable task. I think that he is as qualified as anybody, but boy, it’s like being the president of the United States,” Mr. Redford said in an interview with the network before the series began.

“President in 2016? Perhaps Emanuel is angling to be Hillary’s 2016 vice presidential running mate. A Hillary-Rahm ticket?” asks William Kelly, a conservative blogger based in the Windy City.

“This series could have all the makings of a national political rebrand,” he adds.

The 53-year-old Emanuel, who is busy raising money for his 2015 reelection campaign in the Windy City, has had discussions both over the phone and face to face in the past month with Democratic Party donors and fundraisers about a possible White House run

****  I can not say I am exactly jumping for joy about having Emanuel in our White House, I think it would be like having a 110% Socialist to finish the destruction of our great nation. However, to be fair and give a report of what the people of Chicago think of having Emanuel as their Mayor, I also set out to research their ratings on his job performance.  This is the result of my search:

Chicago Huffington Post   2/22/2014:

Good thing Rahm Emanuel isn't the sensitive type: A new poll indicates there is little love for the Chicago mayor, with just a measly two percent of Chicagoans "strongly" approving of the "Rahmfather."

The Crain's poll notes it's Illinoisans outside Chicago that harbor a far less favorable view of Emanuel compared to Windy City residents; chalk it up to the mayor's "hardball image," his Chicago-centric agenda on gun control and generally progressive stance on issues that chafe more conservative residents downstate.

It is also noted that Chicago keeps track of Emanuel's foul mouth with:

First he should dismantle the Chicago Boss Daly political "machine"   then try his luck goin after the chi-town mafia for a complete cleanup....WHAT?   then where would our contributions come from???

if we thought obama had a dirty campaign and voting fraud,  this Rahm idiot will put all others to shame.  chicago style politics on the move.  hillary would not want to go up against that group.  what a bad prez he would make.  commie, queer, payoffs, deadly.  lots of stuff here to think about.

Patriot Eagle: an old joke comes to mind...If God was going to give the world an enema---where would he stick the tube??? Fist choice washdc then a close second for chicago...

I am of the mind that it just might be a good thing that Emanuel would run for POTUS or be ask to serve as a VP or in some other capacity for a demo candidate. Chicago conjurers up negative images not for one race bu all races. Blacks and Latino's, at least some, very dismayed with Emanuel, so having him om the Dems ticket a plus I should think. 

PG  great post...RE if nominated would get slammed bammed and crammed...Bushys little terrier could beat that crook..
