Okay, anyway, light-in-the-loafers former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel apparently took exception to the ObamaCare #rollout. Which was already perfect, but who knew?
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former White House chief of staff, told CNBC on Thursday he gave President Barack Obama a “contrary opinion” on the early stages of the Affordable Care Act, which debuted with a glitch-ridden website and troubled exchanges.
“He asked for my opinion,” Emanuel said during an interview on “Squawk Box.” “I gave it to him and why I thought we should do something slightly different.”
Pressed on whether he thought the White House should have listened to his more incremental approach for health-care reform, Emanuel praised the president for seeking out opposing views as they hammered out what would later become known as Obamacare.
Emanuel admitted that he challenged the president’s approach, but would not go as far to say that the White House made a mistake by not listening to him.
“The president, to his credit, he was not scared to have contrary opinions,” Emanuel said. “He, constantly during tough moments in passing that bill, asked me for my opinion, unvarnished.” [More swishy mayor dialogue here]
Which, as we all know by now, is the one glowing quality that has stood out most over the tenure of Barry’s presidency. The man is nothing if not a listener.
Anyway, Emanuel doesn’t specifically say what his contrary thoughts were, but we will assume they had nothing to do with forced labor camps in Iowa for dissenters.
You really have to give the Alinskyites credit; once they establish a plan they stay with it.
They will make a public statement on satellite before the Creator of the universe and when it all goes to $#!+ overnight, with straight faces, deny they said what every news outlet in the country has on video.
So who are you gonna believe, wing-nuts, me or your lying eyes?
Anyway, the former White House chief of staff disagreed with Barack Obama and Barack Obama heard him out. Once. Then he went away. And became mayor of Chicago.
No hard feelings.
And Barack must have been right.
Because everything worked out.
