I've often said Rahm Emanuel is the Enforcer, Axelrod the Brain and Obama the Teleprompter. But Emanuel is not just the Enforcer, he has a brain as well. We don't see the Enforcer and the Brain very often, but when you watch closely they both always sit nearby when Obama is holding a conference or making a speech.
Rahmbo, or the way Hannity calls him so lovingly, the deadfish, is the son of a zionist terrorist father who belonged to the Irgun terror group. Here is an interesting article on his father and Rahm's early years.
Rahm was an Israeli citizen until he was 18 years old, when for obvious reasons he hid his Israeli passport in his underwear drawer. In 1991, however, he pulled his Israeli passport out and went and reportedly joined the Israeli Army to defend Zion from Saddam's Scuds.
It's been said that in his very early years Rahm took ballet lessons, kind of hard to imagine.
Rahm served 3 terms in the US House and in between was a partner in a Private Equity firm where he quickly earned 16 Million before Clinton appointed him a seat at Freddie Mac. Little is known that the mortgage crises happened on his watch, and for his short stint as director at Freddie Mac he received stock options totaling $ 380,000. The private equity firm in which he was partner merged with another firm in which he is now a quiet partner holding shares. This firm switched from Financial Services to Health Care Services recently. He's a limited partner of that fund, meaning he's invested capital into that group. Additionally, he's actively enabled several private equity and hedge funds access to state pensions for large sums of capital. What do you think he gets in return? Major money. And if Obama's health care bill gets passed, the sky will probably be the limit for him and who else?
I just came across this posting by LL which compliments everything I've found and said so far about Rahm and the Chicago politics.
The Chicago Way = The Obama Way
I believe it is Rahm that strong arms the members of Congress, I believe it is Rahm that advises Obama how to handle situations, I believe it is Rahm that has longterm ambitions, maybe even to be the next President. The only thing that I don't understand is the way Obama treats Israel and Rahm just stands by and accepts that? This is a subject that needs further investigation, maybe in my next blog? There is just something dark and evil about this man that makes me shudder when I see him.
Now to Axelrod. Ironically, don't you think he looks a little bit like Hitler? He's jewish, so there can't be a connection to Hitler, but his idealogy which is the same as Emanual's and Obama's points to dictatorship like Hitler. He was mostly raised in New York by a left wing newspaper journalist mother and got involved in politics early on because he believed in Idealism. He started his career as a political writer and later formed a political consulting firm. He ran many important campaigns, many for black candidates, before he became the primary political consultant for Barrack Obama. At that time those two had already known each other for a long time. He is the one that crafted the Obama campaign as one of "Change".
Axelrod is credited with implementing a strategy that encourages the participation of people, a lesson drawn partly from Howard Dean's 2004 presidential campaign as well as a personal goal of Barack Obama. Axelrod explained to Rolling Stone magazine, "When we started this race, Barack told us that he wanted the campaign to be a vehicle for involving people and giving them a stake in the kind of organizing he believed in. According to Axelrod getting volunteers involved became the legacy of the campaign " This includes drawing on "Web 2.0" technology and viral media to support a grassroots strategy. Obama's web platform allows supporters to blog, create their own personal page, and even phonebank from home. Axelrod's elaborate use of the Internet has helped Obama to organize under-30 voters and build over 475,000 donors in 2007, most of whom were Internet donors contributing less than $100 each. The Obama strategy stood in contrast to Hillary Clinton's campaign, which benefited from high name recognition, large donors and strong support among established Democratic leaders.

And what has Obama done? He wrote 2 books (did he really write them?) and he kept himself busy as a community organizer before he won a Senate seat. He voted present on all votes and he only served in the Senate for less than a year. Not much experience, compared to his two main men. But, he knew how to handle the teleprompter, he has a presence that appealed to many and with the support of the Enforcer and the Brain, he won the election.
Obama still can't talk without his buddy the teleprompter and I am sure all the trouble he's getting us all into originate with Rahm and Axelrod, that's why I believe it is these three that are running the country, Chicago style. Based on their combined experiences and socialist and marxists beliefs, their goal is to defeat capitalism in this country and maybe even around the world. Just my two cents.
