democracy thing, does he?
Shortly after taking office, Obama held a meeting with governors. At the time, one person in the room relayed Obama's request that critics and skeptics of the stimulus plan keep their concerns to themselves. Just let me do it, was his attitude. He got pushback and he wasn't happy. He wanted democratically elected state governors to shut up so he could do as he pleased. He knows better and we should respect that, seems to be the attitude.
And if you disagree, you'll have Rahm to deal with.
I'm making an effort to keep my language in control(most of the time) so I'll refrain from suggesting what that thug Emanuel can do with himself, his foul mouth and his bigotry.
Besides, he doesn't have to trouble his Chief of Staff; he has his Purple Shirts to do dirty work for him.
