JP Morgan Chase Exec For WH Chief of Staff?

Things I Couldn’t Make Up If I Tried, continued:

William Daley, an executive with JP Morgan Chase in Chicago, is under consideration to replace Rahm Emanuel, who is running for Mayor of Chicago, as President Obama’s Chief of Staff.


Emanuel hopes to succeed outgoing Mayor Richard M. Daley, the brother of William Daley. Like Emanuel, Daley would be a choice with strong ties to the president’s hometown of Chicago.

The decision comes at a critical point of turnover for the Obama administration, as it pivots toward the back half of its first term, and looks toward re-election in 2012.

“McVeigh wannabes” promote Tea Parties, Glenn Beck on their website. Tell me about that Snark again

     If you haven’t heard about the 30 Governors who have received “Resign or else” threats, you might be interested to learn about this.

    The group, “Guardians of the Free Republics,” wants to “restore America” by dismantling parts of the government, according to its web site.      


    The website also promotes tea party protests, calls for revolution, videos from Glenn Beck, and sympathetic articles about recent right-wing domestic terrorist activities, like the suicide attack on an IRS building in Austin earlier this year.
