Rahm Emanuel is, like Joe Lieberman before him, a RADICAL RIGHT-WING WARMONGERING, tax-cuts-for-wealthy, DEREGULATE financial markets, NO-OVERSIGHT BAILOUTS "investment banker" Republican, POSING as a "Democrat."
You can look long and hard to find ANYTHING Emanuel has said or done in the past 10 years that is DIRECTLY CRITICAL of _anything_ Dick Cheney did or advocated while in office as Vice President
(and on almost all substantive polices, Cheney was effectively the de facto President of the United States during most of George W. Bush's 2 terms of office).
Well, sensing that THERE IS NOTHING in the "Democrat" Party's record of 2009 on which he could PROUDLY run on, Senator Dorgan has left the ship.
GOT THAT, NANCY PELOSI? YOU are about to go down as the Democrat Speaker who REPEATED the DISASTER wrought on Democrats of 1994.
Americans WANTED CHANGE in 2008, and YOUR CONGRESS DELIVERED MORE of the BERNANKE-GIETHNER-Rubins-Summers-Paulson Goddamn-Sachs, WALL STREET UBER ALLES economy gutting "BAILOUTS" ATROCITIES that voters TURNED OUT IN DROVES to OPPOSE in 2008, only to BE SWINDLED by the Emanuel/obama/Dodd/Barney Frank "we only listen to Wall Street" "Democrats" throughout the entire year of 2009.
< Just before the holiday, Democratic "leaders" FORCED Senator Byron Dorgan to forgo a key policy initiative–drug reimportation–so as to push through A STINKER of a(note: the ECONOMY IS _NOT_ going to improve in 2009... suggests pro-Democrat PAUL KRUGMAN,
[RAHM EMANUE/max baucus/JOE LIE-BERMAN/barack obama/insurance-industry written] a health care reform bill. And while he says his decision “does not relate to any dissatisfaction that I have about serving in the Senate,” over the holiday he decided not to run for re-election. > (link)
a notion which is SECONDED by ZeroHedge.com, which suggests that the Goddamn-Sachs owned US Fed Reserve is DRAWING UP PLANS to SEIZE the FINANCIAL ASSETS of MILLIONS of Americans, in the form of DENYING Americans access to withdraw money from their money-market accounts!
Actually, as radical as this notion sounds, it has already been done in US history: After President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared a "BANKING HOLIDAY" after his inauguration in 1933, many Americans went back to their banks after "the holiday" to find... that their banks WERE NO LONGER THERE, their savings (deposits, money, safe-deposit boxes) had GONE WITH THE WIND!
This de facto SEIZURE of the savings and assets of millions of American families was REPEATED, when, again under the 'advice' of the bankers-owned US Fed Reserve, the Roosevelt administration DEMANDED that ALL AMERICANS SURRENDER THEIR GOLD with the issuance of "Executive order 6102" in 1933, shortly after the banking "holiday" WIPED OUT millions of American families.
