'Special Olympics' Obama chief of staff’s 'retarded' insult brings fallout, Palin criticism.

Dating back to the time he worked in the Clinton administration, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has developed an almost notorious reputation in Washington for being a brash personality with a penchant for profanity-laced diatribes. Conversely, his intense nature, in addition to his sharp mind, are what many attribute to his success and effectiveness as a Washington power player. But a recently revealed remark he made in a closed-door meeting attended by White House aides and leaders of liberal special-interest groups has irked many, prompting him to issue an apology.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Emanuel, exasperated upon learning that liberal special-interest groups were planning to run ads against conservative Democrats not supportive of health care reform, blasted the plan as "f------ retarded" over the summer. Naturally, some outrage ensued after Emanuel's words came to light, with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin taking to her Facebook page to call on President Obama to fire him for what she saw as the equivalent of a racial slur. READ MORE...

Barack Obama will NOT fire Rahm Emanuel. Sarah Palin knows that Obama is not going to fire Rahm, but she probably suggested it just to get under the skin of liberals, and we applaud her for continuing to make the most deranged people who are destroying this country MAD as hell.

President Obama needs the 'thug' of staff, Rahm 'Brass Knuckles' Emanuel, to stick around so he can continue to threaten, bribe and lead the charge in 'hope and change' with his Chicago style politics. He isn't going anywhere.

As for Obama himself, his special Olympics comment last year wasn't received so well. (Video below) The hypocrisy of liberals is still obvious and this is just another example of it.

A Great Liberal Slogan, 'do as I say, not as I do.'

It's not that this comment was super offensive, it's the fact that Obama is the President. Liberals create 'political correctness' which is killing our society, but when it backfires, they have no one to blame but themselves...

Using the word 'retarded' should ONLY be used when referring to someone who is REALLY REALLY mentally challenged (or mentally unstable) like Nancy Pelosi.


  1. As a tactic to get under the Lib's skin, Palin's remarks are good. Overall though, they make her look bad. Perpetuating this culture of "everyone offended, all the time," is fucking retarded. Why don't we just start paving all the sidewalks with eggshells? Pass out ballet slippers in schools and teach our children how to tiptoe properly?

    I know, let's just burn all the books and outlaw speaking and writing because someone might get their tender feelings hurt?

    Or better yet, hate crime laws! Yeah, that's the ticket!

    I was all for Palin at first and I still have hope for her, but I'm not liking what I see lately.

    She should stop saying "yeah, yeah, yeah...", and start taking a stand instead of talking a lot and saying little. Maybe she should stop consulting her vagina on every issue and start consulting the Constitution.

    She doesn't appear to be fighting for freedom. She appears to be attempting to cement herself as a career politician in the national political machine.

    Dems don't like freedom, and neither do the Repubs. They are fighting over who gets to own us. She is just working for one of the teams that wants to dominate every aspect of our lives while they live like royalty at our expense.

    I hope I'm wrong, but this is what it looks like to me and it makes me sick.

  2. good point. she can call for Rahm's firing over all of the crooked shit he's done, not for calling democrats effin retards. he was right.

    I still like her, but she needs to chill. he didn't say 'so and so, you are a retard.'
