The scoop from Washington

Rahm Emanuel defended by David Broder.

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Now David Broder, the sage Washington Post poltiical columnist, is weighing in on Obama White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in a Thursday column titled "The Fable of Rahm the Great," the latest installment of the Emanuel saga.

Broder's lede: "In the space of 10 days, thanks in no small part to my own newspaper, the president of the United States has been portrayed as a weakling and a chronic screw-up who is wrecking his administration despite everything that his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, can do to make things right."

My Wednesday post summary to date...

WASHINGTON--The Rahmologists get another fix on Wednesday, this time via a story in the New Republic by Noam Scheiber about White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel titled, "The Chief. You think it's so great being Rahm Emanuel?"
