Is Rahm Emanuel President Obama's Pit Bull?
In the days before President Obama's last news conference, as the networks weighed whether to give up a chunk of their precious prime time, Rahm Emanuel went straight to the top. Rather than calling ABC, the White House chief of staff phoned Bob Iger, chief executive of parent company Disney. Instead of contacting NBC, Emanuel went to Jeffrey Immelt, the chief executive of General Electric. He also spoke with Les Moonves, the chief executive of CBS, the company spun off from Viacom. Whether this amounted to undue pressure or plain old Chicago arm-twisting, Emanuel got results: the fourth hour of lucrative network time for his boss in six months. But network executives have been privately complaining to White House officials that they cannot afford to keep airing these sessions in the current economic downturn. The networks "absolutely" feel pressured, says Paul Friedman, CBS's senior vice president: "It's an enormous financial cost when the president replaces one of those prime-time hours. The news divisions also have mixed feelings about whether they are being used." ********************************************** And if so, should we send Raham Emanuel after the GOP to crush them once and for all.

Part of the chief's job is to make things happen on the Hill. That's always true.

Old Rahm is just brothers with all those heads of the broadcasting companies. And he isn't Obama's pit bull, he is Obama's handler.

No. President Obama is his own pit bull, when he has to be. But you guys just keep right on underestimating him.

Don't compare Pitbulls to the joke that is in our White house. I like Pitbulls, I think the administration is a joke and is slowly and very effectively taking away our rights but most people won't see it till its to late. Which side are you on?
