Rahm Emanuel Seeks to Become Mayor of Chicago
Is There any Danger of Vote Fraud in 2012?

What is the national significance of the recent Illinois Supreme Court decision ordering Rahm Emanuel’s name to be placed on the ballot on February 22, 2011 in Chicago, and allowing him to run as the Democratic candidate for Mayor? By my estimate, it’s worth about three million votes, not for Emanuel but for his old boss, President Obama! How else could President Obama hope to win the 2012 Presidential Election without Chicago firmly in his back pocket? And who else could be trusted better to deliver the votes, now that Chicago strong man, Mayor Richard Daley is retiring, then Rahm 'dead fish' Emanuel? Who else could summon up all of those dead Democratic voters on Election Day and cause them to rise up from their graves again, and make their annual pilgrimage to the nearest polling place and pull the lever once more for Obama, better than Rahm a.k.a. 'Rahmbo' Emanuel?
That is why the President’s Chief of Staff left his position at the White House! He wasn’t bailing out on the President. On the contrary, he was looking out for the President! Emanuel was simply needed more in Chicago, then he was back in Washington! There is a city to be held for the Democratic Party and an election to be won in 2012! With President Obama’s popularity rating bottoming out faster than a brick in a bathtub full of water, the Chicago results are absolutely critical to Obama’s chances for victory in 2012! That is why Emanuel was shuttled back to Chicago, for damage control! They always seem to be one step ahead of us, don’t they? Emanuel’s new job is to make sure that Chicago votes for Obama, and votes a straight Democratic Party-line ticket. That’s the same job that every Mayor of Chicago has always had for the past 100 years, that is to deliver Chicago to the Democratic Party! But in order to guarantee a Democratic victory in Chicago, you have to be securely in control of the “levers of power.” In Chicago that means only one thing, the Mayor’s office!
“My kind of town, Chicago is, my kind of town,” Chicago was, the reason that John F. Kennedy beat Richard Nixon in the Presidential Election of 1960 and if it hadn’t been for Chicago, which fell solidly into the Kennedy camp, Nixon would have been our 35th President, not our 37th President! Chicago was the key then, and Chicago is still the key now! It is the key to President Obama’s chances for victory in 2012. There are over three million voters in Chicago, and depending upon just how many deceased Democratic voters cast their ballots on Election Day, nobody actually knows just how many votes there really are in Cook County! But one thing is for sure. There is a vast, well-oiled Democratic Party Machine, already in place just waiting to deliver the votes, and the city to Obama! There just needs to be the right person in charge, at the top! And who better than the President’s right hand man, and former Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel?
I can’t speculate on just why Mayor Richard M. Daley decided to resign at this critical moment in President Obama’s career, or whether it had anything at all to do with the sale of President Obama’s old Senate seat, or the fallout resulting from that, or the trial of former Illinois Governor Rob Blagojevich. Maybe Mayor Daley just decided that he had enough of government and it is just a sheer coincidence that his decision not to run again occurred at about the same time that President Obama is seeking re-election. It is remotely possible that Mayor Daley just wanted to spend more time with his family. But I have to tell you, there hasn’t been more than 13 years out of the past 56 years that there hasn’t been a Mayor of Chicago whose name was Richard Daley!
