Monday 9-28 Impeach Rahm Emanuel

Politics is the art of achieving the possible. Now is the time for us to demand the resignation of Rahm Emanuel as Obama's Chief of Staff. And, as far as I am concerned, he can take David Axelrod back to Chicago with him. The Democrats have overwhelming majorities in the Senate and in the House of Representatives so the best we could hope for is to kick Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod out of Washington.

I think we can get the backing of Obama's die hard supporters to join us in ousting Emanuel and Axelrod because their resignations would force Obama to become President of the United States and to give us the change he promised us.

To date Obama has read many teleprompter speeches but has done nothing presidential. He held no hearings to draft a health care plan. He has allowed cohorts of Cheney and Bush to tell him what to do in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The generals are still waiting for his decision on whether or not he will increase troop levels in Afghanistan.

Those of you who voted for anti-war congressional candidates in 2006 will remember what happened after the elections and the Democrats took control of the House. Rahm Emanuel had been in charge of raising funds for the House Democrats. He sent a lot of money to pro-war and pro-Israel Democrat candidates and actually cut off funding for anti-war candidates even in districts where Republicans were vulnerable.

We cannot afford to allow Rahm Emanuel to be anywhere near the White House when the President of the United States has to make critical decisions about war with Iran, health care and Bail Outs for Wall Street.

In my opinion we should also ask all of the 32 or more special czars to resign. I say force Obama to become President and to hold meetings with his Cabinet.

At the next protest rally, we need signs or even bumper stickers saying Impeach Rahm Emanuel.

I also posted this at my new blog here.
