Rahmbo Says Goodbye

Turn out the lights.  The party is over.  White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is calling it quits.  He’s taking his ball and going home.  The man with the ear of the President reportedly says he’s leaving before the year is out.  Why?

Washington Insiders have told the London Telegraph that Emanuel can’t take it anymore.  He’s leaving his position in 6-8 months according to the New York Daily News.  Supposedly many in the White House are ready to get rid of the man known for working Chicago-style politics.  The Telegraph quotes a leading Democrat who spoke anonymously on the issue:

“Nobody thinks it’s working but they can’t get rid of him – that would look awful. He needs the right sort of job to go but the consensus is he’ll go.” – Democrat Anonymous Insider

The White House has yet to comment on the issue, but Emanuel has complained in the past of the heavy work load and some believe he wants to be Mayor of Chicago.  Emmanuel told 60 Minutes last March:

“It’s seven days a week, constant. And even at night, you’re never really calm sleeping. No matter how exhausted, you’re not calm. You’re never kinda off.” – Rahm Emanuel

Many have complained that Emanuel’s style is just too rough.  He is expected to quit  shortly after the midterms.  It won’t be any surprise to see multiple Obama staff leave at that time – especially if November gives Obama’s party a crushing defeat.

Emanuel may be the canary in the coal mine.  His exit could be the first of many.
