Last August, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel attended a weekly strategy session with liberal groups. Certain groups said they were planning to air ads attacking conservative Blue Dog Democrats who were opposing at Mr. Obama's health-care overhaul. Emanuel called them 'F**king retarded!' He warned them not to alienate lawmakers whose votes would be needed on health care and other top legislative items.
Even though there are those who wanted him terminated; but looking at it closely, was he wrong saying that to these liberal groups? If it quacks like duck and walks like a duck, then it is a duck.
