Rahm as progressive scapgoat for Obama’s failings

Some progressives are blaming Rahm Emmanuel for the perilous condition of the Obama presidency. Ah yes, the evil Machiavelli whispers things in poor little Obama’s ear, forcing him to do things against his will. It’s just so tragic. And surely, they reason, were the Evil One to depart the White House, then Obama would quickly come to his senses and Do The Right Thing.

Talk about wishful thinking. These progressives forget that Obama hired Emmanuel.
