AP sources: Emanuel leaving White House on Friday - Yahoo! News

AP-4pm-Rahm Emanuel will resign as White House chief of staff on Friday and will begin his campaign for Chicago mayor by meeting with voters in the city on Monday, two people familiar with Emanuel's plans said.

The two people, who spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt Emanuel's announcement, said he will return to Chicago over the weekend and begin touring neighborhoods Monday.

"He intends to run for mayor," one of the people told The Associated Press.

I think this will be good for Obama. Emanuel is too much a Rove kinda guy, and I think Obama would be better served by some one more issues focused.

Looks like Rahm's leaving will raise the IQ of both Washington and Chicago.

Sorry, Chicagoans. I just had to get this one in. :mrgreen:

It'll definitely be good for Rahmbeaux. He doesn't care if he wins the mayorial campaign, just as long as he doesn't have his name attached to the biggest joke of an administration in history.

Second biggest joke of an administration in history.

hope he is replaced by Erskine Bowles
the guy who turned around the dysfunctional clinton white house

but saw that rahm has rented out his chicago home, potentially making him ineligible to meet resident requirements to be able to file for a run for mayor

they said he played a mean game of tennis-not much for court coverage but he had a big league service and a ferocious forehand
he also held the two most powerful offices in America-the only man to do so

Emanuel is not the only RAT deserting the sinking SS Dumb ass Obama.

David Axelrod and Obama's entire failed economic teams is scurrying for the exits and there is speculation that Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is about to take a hike.

Some Conservatives does not want to see because Gibbs is such a rich source of comedy material because he's so damn stupid, and seemingly very poorly educated.

Everyone sees the writing on the wall and know it is easier too get another job before Obama is thrown out of office by either a Conservative or not even allowed to run by the ever growing numbers of disenchanted of Democrats who may be ready to try Hillary.

It is highly speculated that that even though Hillary is claiming the usual line of having no plans to run that she will because she really can't stand Obama.

I still think she can't win but who knows.

The people fell for Obama's lies hook, line, and sinker, and no3w come Nov. we can begin to reverse his damage and restore America and Our Constitution.

Those who stand for nothing fall for anything

This is good. Rahm was too busy playing politics and was an influence keeping Obama away from listening to his base.

Chicago will be getting rid of an old thug and replacing him with a young thug. Thank God I got out of that city.

I can see someone drawing this picture, and halfway through thinking "NEEDS MORE RATS."

Do you really think that will happen? Personally I have lost faith with the who both parties produce as candiates. The Republicans presented Bush last time and they lost 8 years of congressional control and atleast 4 years of the White House because of it. The Democrats did them a solid and returned an equal failure.

I honestly don't think either party has the capability of producing a quality candidate. It's up to the third parties to take control and they just don't have the numbers or the budget.

I agree, but the GOP II (Tea Party) is not the answer. They have no solutions to the problems we face today and in the future.

And another one bites the dust...
LINK
Gen. James Jones is calling it quits as President Obama's national security adviser...

While Jones' resignation is not unexpected, he is the latest high-profile official to leave Obama's administration following Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's departure last week.

Last month, Christina Romer stepped down as Obama's top economic adviser and Larry Summers announced he would leave as director of the president's National Economic Council at the end of the year. Budget Director Peter Orszag left the administration in July. Dennis Blair resigned as the nation's intelligence director in May.

More leadership changes are expected as Obama nears the two-year mark of his term and the grueling pace of the White House takes a toll.

If Obama had known the scope of the mess the last administration left him he would never had run for office. He would probably like to jump ship right now, too. I don't blame him.
