This Latest Proposal by Rahm Emanuel Shows How Desperate He is to Get Re-Elected

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]No further proof is needed to show that Democrat Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is deeply worried about his upcoming re-election vote, and is in for the political fight of his life, even though his challenger, Chuy Garcia, is a socialist at best, and a communist at worst, running to the left of Emanuel, to the degree that is even possible.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]In the remaining days up to the April 7, vote, Emanuel is pulling out all the stops, with his latest move a likely cry out to the Obama Regime, screaming, “Help!”

In a shameful act of pandering for last minute political support, Emanuel, the former Obama Regime Chief of Staff, known for his unprincipled, mobster-like ruthlessness (perfect for the politically corrupt City of Chicago), has suggested renaming one of Chicago’s two major international airports, Midway or O’Hare, after his former boss and sitting president, Barack Hussein Obama.

As Politico  reported:

When asked at a candidate forum at Chicago State University why he was no longer supporting his own proposal to name two high schools after Obama and influential religious and community leader Arthur Brazier, Emanuel said that he was still looking for ways to “acknowledge people who have done significant things.”


“We have an airport, two of them, you know, Midway Airport, O’Hare Airport,” Emanuel said. “[Obama and Brazier] are people who have been transformative in the city of Chicago. But we have airports named after battleships.”

President Obama worked as a community organizer in Chicago before enrolling at Harvard Law School in 1988. He then returned to the city, where he taught at the University of Chicago Law School and worked as an attorney before representing the city’s South Side in the Illinois State Senate.

It would be extremely rare, if not unprecedented, for a major airport to be named after a sitting president.

For example, Washington National Airport was changed to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on February 6, 1998, ten years after  Reagan left office, which is the definite norm. Obviously, for Emanuel to suggest the renaming means he wants something in return (see: The Chicago Way).

But then again, desperate times call for desperate measures, even if it means naming one of the nation’s largest airports after a failed president buried in scandal and unconstitutional acts, while he’s still in office.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
