From Talking Points Memo:
"Rahm To Reid: Give Lieberman What He Wants
Obama administration officials were not pleased when word leaked out earlier today that the White House was leaning on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to cut a deal with Joe Lieberman on a public option alternative...
The aide confirmed an account, reported by Huffington Post, that Emanuel visited Reid personally, telling him to cut a deal with Lieberman."
Have I ever pointed out that Rahm Emmanuel is a disgusting, power hungry dick without a shred of principle in his body? He is always on the wrong side at the White House, and has his dirty fingers deep into every failure the Democrats have had the last year. He saddled the country when he was in congress with a pile of repulsive blue dogs who are worse than Republicans, and now he is working as hard as he can to see that they beat real democrats every step of the way.
If we needed people like him running this country, we could have stuck with Bush and Cheney.
The fact that Obama tolerates him makes me wonder if Obama had anything more in mind last year than a steady job and a free house for four years.
