Emanuel has apologized for a remark, quoted last week in the Wall Street Journal, in which he called liberal Democrats "(bleepin') retarded."
If you don't know much about Emanuel, read the GLH post on this subject.
Then, share your views with The White House.
Here's what I wrote:
Rahm Emanuel is a liability to progress. He exudes the misplaced values of Washington group think.
The perceptions of his political talents are not substantiated by his track record: He was the architect of NAFTA in 1993, resulting in unions staying home in 1994 and the Democrats losing 54 House seats. As anti-war sentiment raged in 2006, Emanuel, then head of the DCCC, recruited pro-war Democrats. The result, only nine of his hand picked 22 candidates won almost costing the Democrats the majority in a year they should have won a landslide.
Let Emanuel go. There are plenty of talented people to be Chief of Staff.
Sincerely, a "bleeping" retarded lefty.
