    You almost gotta laugh, it seems that former Obama chief and current Chicago Mayor Rohm Emanuel is fighting against municipal union demands.

    Rahm Emanuel is a liberal like Hitler was a socialist. He may sometimes talk the talk but in the end he is just a power hungry prick.

    Maybe Emanuel is a pragmatic SOB who just wants to get the best deal for the poor people in Chicago even if it means fighting municipal unions.

    He just spent millions on some rather military looking police equipment and security measures, that's about the limit of his concern for the poor people of Chicago.

    Um, "power hungry prick" is the very definition of liberal.

    Maybe Emanuel is smarter than we thought He must have met Obama appointee Van Jones who once led an arson and looting rampage and now pulls the strings in the OWS movement so he has a better insight to potential anarchy than most mayors.

    I checked Webster's and apparently that is not the very definition of liberal.

    It's more like he made some powerful friends in the defense industry who would like very much for America to fear populist movements on the left.
