Rahm Emanuel was part of the overseers of $6 tillion in new debt. One of the overseers in adding almost $1 trillion/year in government spending. Overseer of Obamacare where the cost has already doubled. Overseer in saying that the stimulus spending would take care of infrastructure…but NOW we need to take care of infrastructure. All of them continue to say the right things and then screw us. Read this:
Rahm Emanuel, a Democrat, is mayor of Chicago and represented Illinois’ 5th District in the U.S. House from 2003 to 2009. He was White House chief of staff from January 2009 to October 2010.
Too much post-election analysis has focused on voter demographics and campaign mechanics, leaving Democrats in danger of drawing the wrong lessons from our electoral success.
Demographics alone are not destiny. There is nothing in this year’s election returns that guarantees Democrats a permanent majority in the years to come. President Obama and the Democratic Party earned the support of key groups — young people, single women, Latinos, African Americans, auto workers in the Rust Belt and millions of other middle-class Americans — because of our ideas.
But we cannot expect Republicans to cede the economic argument so readily, or to fall so far short on campaign mechanics, the next time around.
