Mayor Daley: No ‘Chicago mafia’ in White House

President Obama’s selection of William Daley as his new chief of staff is not an example of a “Chicago mafia,” Mayor Richard M. Daley, William Daley’s brother, said Thursday.

At a press conference about Chicago schools Thursday, Mayor Daley said that his brother’s appointment to be President Obama’s new chief of staff was not an example of a “Chicago mafia.”

“(President George W. Bush) brought people from Texas. John F. Kennedy brought people from Massachusetts. Richard Nixon brought people from California,” Daley said. “Ronald Reagan brought people from California. Jimmy Carter brought people from Georgia. Bush brought people from Texas. Clinton brought people from Arkansas.”

Rather than an example of Chicago-style politics, Mayor Daley said it was an example of the president picking someone he knows.

“There’s nothing wrong with that,” Daley said.

Mayor Daley: No ‘Chicago mafia’ in White House

One day this nasty old wolf came up to the straw pig’s house and said, ”I’m gonna huff and puff and blow your house down.” And he did.

So the straw pig went running over to the stick pig’s house and said, “Please let me in, the wolf just blew down my house.” So the stick Pig let the straw pig in. Just then the wolf showed up and said, “I’m gonna huff and puff and blow your house down.” And he did.

So the straw pig and the stick pig went running over to the brick pig’s house and said, “Let us in, let us in, the big bad wolf just blew our houses down!” So the brick pig let them in just as the wolf showed up. The wolf said, “I’m gonna huff and puff and blow your house down.”

The straw pig and the stick pig were so scared. But the brick pig picked up the phone and made a call. A few minutes passed and a big, black stretch limo pulled up. Out stepped two massive pigs in pin striped suits and fedora hats. These pigs went over to the wolf, grabbed him by the neck and beat the stuffing out of him. Then one of them pulled out a gun, stuck it in is mouth and fired, killing the wolf. Then they got back into their limo and drove off.

The straw pig and stick pig were amazed!

“Who the heck were those guys?” they asked.

“Those were my cousins from Jersey … the Guinea Pigs.”

The moral of this story you ask? There’s MAFIA everywhere..

The Godfather, “Michael, This Obama guy, he’s going to come at you when you least expect it. He’s a Socialist Michael, he thinks he a  big shot, a .90 caliber.”

Michael Corleone, “Don’t worry Pop, this guy is a babe in the woods, we can take care of him and his Chicago Mafia, think about it Pop, have ya heard from Capone lately?”

Hussein Obama was NOT available for comment!

Veteran to Veteran and a bit more

Veteran to Veteran and a bit more

When a Veteran leaves the ‘job’ and retires to a better life, many are jealous, some are pleased, and others, who may have already retired, wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because we already know.

1. We know, for example, that after a lifetime of camaraderie that few experience, it will remain as a longing for those past times.

2. We know in the Military life there is a fellowship which lasts long after the uniforms are hung up in the back of the closet.

3. We know even if he throws them away, they will be on him with every step and breath that remains in his life. We also know how the very bearing of the man speaks of what he was and in his heart still is.

These are the burdens of the job. You will still look at people suspiciously, still see what others do not see or choose to ignore and always will look at the rest of the Military world with a respect for what they do; only grown in a lifetime of knowing.

Never think for one moment you are escaping from that life. You are only escaping the ‘job’ and merely being allowed to leave ‘active’ duty.

So what I wish for you is that whenever you ease into retirement, in your heart you never forget for one moment that you are still a member of the greatest fraternity the world has ever known.

NOW… Civilian Friends vs. Veteran Friends Comparisons:

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Get upset if you’re too busy to talk to them for a week.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Are glad to see you after years, and will happily carry on the same conversation you were having the last time you met.
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Have cried with you.
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it’s yours.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that’s what the crowd is doing.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Will stand by you no matter what the crowd does.
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Are for a while.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Are for life.
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have shared a few experiences…

VETERAN FRIENDS: Have shared a lifetime of experiences no citizen could ever dream of…
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you’ve had enough.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say, ‘You better drink the rest of that before you spill it!’ Then carry you home safely and put you to bed…
CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will ignore this.

VETERAN FRIENDS: Will forward this.
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, served one hitch, or reserve is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The Government of the United States of America ‘ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life’.

From one Veteran to another, it’s an honor to be in your company.

Thank you for your service to our country and for defending the freedoms we enjoy.

I received this via email from Mr. GM Roper of GM’s Place and I immediately knew that I had to post it.

I am fed up to the point of choking those that denigrate our troops and police officers, those anarchists that cheer the death of our troops and police officers, those haters that encourage and hope for the deaths of our troops and police officers.

I have declared my own personal WAR against the anarchists and Libertarians that advocate the legalization of narcotics, the abolition of all laws, the overthrow of our government and the death of police officers and troops.

If you take the beginning of this post and replace the word veteran with word police officer, you will find the parallels, and similarities of dedication to one another, to be uncanny.

God bless and protect our troops and police officers, and keep them safe in your sight!

Those that have never served, those that have never worn a badge and gun, those have have never known or loved persons that have, will NOT understand this post and the camaraderie and loyalty it espouses.

Next Obama chapter: Change coming to White House

Next Obama chapter: Change coming to White House

WASHINGTON (AP) - Retooling for a re-election run, President Barack Obama is shaking up his senior leadership team to deal with the new realities of his term: The era of big legislation is over, a massive campaign effort needs energy and people, and the White House is taking a toll on those who run it.

Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, is likely to leave that job, and his interim chief of staff, Pete Rouse, may go, too. Those departures would significantly alter the management of the White House and the way it explains itself to the world.

In the coming days and weeks, Obama is also expected to have a new chief economic adviser, a new senior political counselor, and two new deputy chiefs of staff.

Collectively, the moves reflect that change is coming to the White House in ways that will alter the dynamic of the place - and, in turn, will influence the agenda affecting the nation. The vice president’s office is in for its own new leadership, with its chief of staff, Ron Klain, leaving to run an investment company.

Next Obama chapter: Change coming to White House

This disgusting socialist SOB has done more than enough damage already.

We, American Conservatives and Patriots, have got to mobilize NOW and stop Hussein Obama from even having a remote shot at another term. Obama, and his corrupt regime of socialists and commies, have got to go!

Ladies and Gentlemen, THAT is the 1st Family of the United States of America!

An America hating socialist SOB that has no desire other than to please his *handlers* by bringing this nation to it’s knees. And with him is his little posse of ghetto ‘hood rats. You can take the ‘hood rats out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the ‘hood rats.

Dr. Richard Bacon, my good friend, neighbor and fellow patriot, and I were discussing this very story earlier today and Dr. Bacon said:

Fred we have already talked about this. Obama will govern for the next two years by “executive order” in defiance of the Constitution, which states that ALL legislative power shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.

To which I responded, “Well Richard, I am locked and loaded…I will NOT go quietly.”

As the original story says, it appears that a shakeup of the Obama staff is eminent, and that staff will be led by William M. Daley, another member of Obama’s *Chicago Connection*.

William Daley is under serious consideration to replace Rouse as chief of staff, which is considered the most important gatekeeping job in American politics. Daley, a banking executive and former Cabinet secretary under President Bill Clinton, is said to want the job. Rouse, a camera-shy adviser to Obama who has served smoothly as interim chief of staff, had never wanted to do it for long. If Rouse decides to leave, Daley will likely come aboard. No other scenarios are being strongly considered. Obama and Rouse are expected to decide shortly.

Somehow, recycled Clinton Cabinet members joining the Obama regime just doesn’t inspire me with any great feeling of confidence and well-being.

Gibbs, the most visible spokesman for the president, is likely to leave the briefing room podium. It is unclear whether he would stay at the White House or leave for private sector work, but either way, he will remain a presidential adviser. Gibbs has been at Obama’s side since 2004 and has been expected to seek a change from the grueling job.

Robert Lane Gibbs, much like the human gaffe machine, Joe Biden, is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Gibbs is so willingly foolish, and just plain silly, than many Conservative pundits call him Baghdad Bob Gibbs, as a barb comparing him to another foolish press guy, one Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, the original Baghdad Bob.

David Axelrod, one of Obama’s most trusted advisers and strategists, is leaving the White House after the State of the Union speech in January. He plans to recharge at home in Chicago and play a significant role in Obama’s re-election bid. David Plouffe, Obama’s presidential campaign manager and a counselor to Obama over the last two years from outside the building, is expected to join the White House as early as next week as a top adviser.
