Hilarious. The Chicago machine is so on edge about President Obama’s re-election chances, Rahm Emanuel actually withholds stories about the President when asked by a fourth grader:
From CNS News:
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who formerly served as President Barack Obama’s White House chief of staff, promised a Florida fourth-grader interviewing him that "after the election"–but not before–he would tell him some funny stories about President Obama.
Jaylen Williams, a student in West Palm Beach, asked Emanuel on October 22: “Do you have any funny stories you can tell us about President Obama?”
Emanuel, who was visiting an Obama campaign office, responded: “Funny stories about the president? Well, let’s see, I’m trying to think — there’s all kinds of stories, I mean things that we used to do that we had fun about. But I want to be respectful of him. He’s got a big campaign.”
Emanuel continued: “How about this? I’m going to make a commitment to you. After the election, I’ll tell you some funny stories. I don’t want to do anything that would ever be used the wrong way to jeopardize his election, okay?” he said.
