  •  Rahm Emanuel actually makes Daley Jr. (0+ / 0-)

    look good, by comparison, and Daley appointed Arne Duncan to be the Chicago schools chief! Regarding the Chicago school closings, Rahm is operating like a right-wing Republican. And why did Obama select Arne Duncan for US Education Secretary? When is comes to educational concerns, this man is completely incompetent.

    •  on Obama and Duncan (0+ / 0-)

      1.  he knew Duncan from Chicago, and remember that Rahm was also his chief of staff

      2.  O had a long connection with Dems for Education Reform

      3.  In March 2008 he committed to their agenda in return for Wall Street money for the general election.

      •  Yes, I knew about (0+ / 0-)

        the past association of Obama, Duncan and Emanuel. The question regarding Duncan was supposed to be rhetorical because of my frustration with Obama - more of a "WTF?" type comment. Not surprised - just pissed.
