“Dead Fish Emanuel” as Hannity calls him, was elected yesterday.

In Chicago – there’s just no defeating that corrupt (vote early; vote often) Chicago Democratic Machine!

Former Obama White House Chief-of-Staff, Rahm Emanuel has been elected Chicago’s first (secular, liberal, progressive) “Jewish” mayor.

His predecessors, the Daley father and son, and his father, Richard J. Daley, had controlled the city of 2.69 million for 42 of the past 55 years.

The current economic crisis in the United States has affected the Midwestern city as it has others, leading to an estimated budget deficit of some $600 million.

Nevertheless, Emanuel’s popularity may stand him in good stead, at least initially, being close to Obama!   The 51-year-old former Congressman won 55 per cent of the vote in a field of six candidates, thus ending the need for a run-off in April. Gery J. Chico, former chief of staff to incumbent Mayor Richard M. Daley, his closest competitor, garnered less than half with only 24 percent.

Emanuel is known as a tough pragmatist and for his blunt manner of speaking, termed “sharp elbows” …..

Exhibiting the Obama Administration’s attitude toward Israel, during his tenure as chief of staff in the Obama White House, he told an Israeli diplomat that the United States was “fed up” with Israel.

Attempting to backtrack, less than a year later, however, as he considered a run in the Chicago mayoral race, he told rabbis that the Obama administration had “screwed up the messaging” and failed to convey its (missing in action) support for the Jewish State.

President Barack Obama called Tuesday night to congratulate Emanuel, saying, “As a Chicagoan and a friend, I couldn’t be prouder.”

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
