Emanuel: If Republicans Win in Congress, it Would be “Dangerous”


emanuel1President Barack Obama’s chief of staff is warning about what might happen if Republicans-who have defended BP over the Gulf oil spill-were to run Congress after the fall election.

Rahm Emanuel says the GOP philosophy is to paint BP as the victim. He says Obama will make clear to voters the fundamental differences in how each party would govern.

Emanuel tells ABC’s “This Week” it would be “dangerous” if the GOP held power in Washington.

He says GOP lawmakers and candidates are attacking the administration for demanding that BP set up a $20 billion compensation fund.

Last week, Rep. Joe Barton apologized to BP for what he called a White House “shakedown.” The Texas Republican later stepped back from those remarks.

  1. I’m not sure what legal authority a President has to demand that a compensation fund be set up. (If he does, why not have one for Social Security…) This is yet amother power-grab (Think of all the ‘czars’ who were not vetted or confirmed by Congress and are not unaccountable to anyone except the President himself.) The only disaster would be to the Administration which is blindly steamrolling the U.S. into the 1800s.

  2. guess what? It’s more DANGEROUS to have democrats in power! Let them prove what great things they’ve done for the country since Obama joined!
