has said that he will step down as press secretary in order to devote himself to Obama's re-election campaign. Which means that the Big O has decided to run again. The guy can't even admit that he has failed.
This news means that there MUST be an intra-party challenge to Obama. We simply cannot survive any more of this crap.
It gets better. Obama will probably give the press secretary position to Richard Daley's brother. When the House Republicans get their investigative engines going, they will be looking hard at Obama's links to Chicago corruption. This won't be like the Clinton years, when the Republican attacks were just smears. In Obama's case, the corruption was real.
And now he is going to have a member of the Daley family function as the voice of the administration. This will be fun.Here is an example
of what to expect:
Mayor Richard Daley has often sought to portray himself as above involvement in machine-style politics, once declaring, "My political organization is myself."
But testimony Monday in a federal corruption trial linked the mayor's brother William Daley and longtime top strategist Timothy Degnan to the embryonic stages of what became the Hispanic Democratic Organization.
Although the mayor has denied knowing that city job openings were rigged for his supporters, a former HDO leader from the Southeast Side testified Degnan dangled jobs in return for loyalty in Daley's first successful campaign for mayor in 1989.
And another former top Latino political operative said he helped build HDO on the North Side for Daley's political organization in the early 1990s at the urging of Degnan, William Daley and U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.)
