Rahm Emanuel Is Getting Sworn The ^$%^&$ In As Chicago’s New Mayor

Rahm Emanuel Is Getting Sworn The ^$%^&$ In As Chicago’s New Mayor

Now that former White House Chief of Staff is about to be sworn in as Mayor of Chicago, there’s just one question looming in everyone’s mind.

Can he get through his acceptance speech without swearing?

Prepared remarks via The Page indicate yes, he just might do it.

New times demand new answers; old problems cry out for better results. This morning, we leave behind the old ways and old divisions and begin a new day for Chicago. I am proud to lead a city united in common purpose and driven by a common thirst for change.

To do that, we must face the truth. It is time to take on the challenges that threaten the very future of our city: the quality of our schools, the safety of our streets, the cost and effectiveness of city government, and the urgent need to create and keep the jobs of the future right here in Chicago.

All of us have a role to play in writing Chicago’s next chapter. And anyone open to change will have a seat at the table.

None of what we must overcome will be easy, but in my heart I know this: The challenges for the city of Chicago are no match for the character of the people of Chicago.

Change, challenge, jobs of the future?  He sounds very much like his old boss in his speech.

Expect Vice President Joe Biden to be in attendance at the ceremony, where Emanuel will be sworn in as the first new mayor the city has had in over two decades.

Rahm may be able to make it through while curbing his tongue, but it’s less likely that his twitter alter ego could have done it.

We miss you, Mayor Emanuel.

Past Member,

He's living up to the standard of harry S. Truman, who used to swear so much, that he included swear words in executive orders.

I wonder how long before he calls his ex-employer for bailout money for his city. with their compbined lack of economic experience and thirst for big government and his wishes to save all he stated... he will need A LOT of bailout monies. Small price to pay amongst friends and Obama's home state, etc. Watch the news carefully, they will do it, under the radar of course, to make Rahm look good.

Is he really Jewish... you would have never known it considering his policy stances on Israel.
