When I first heard that President Obama was going to address the people of Chicago by radio, I figured it would be to apologize for publicly predicting that the Bears would beat the Packers, but no, it was only to give a semi-endorsement to Rahm Emanuel:

Rahm Emanuel’s campaign on Friday unveiled a new radio ad in which President Barack Obama says he gave Emanuel no choice but to accept the job as White House chief of staff.

The ad comes a day after the Illinois Supreme Court ruled Emanuel did not give up his Chicago residency when he moved to Washington to work for Obama. Emanuel remains on the Feb. 22 ballot as a result of the ruling.

The spot includes two clips from Emanuel’s October White House sendoff, when he stepped down to run for mayor. It features Obama proclaiming Emanuel “was not allowed to say no” to Obama’s request to serve in the administration.

Is Obama the next Democrat in line to be branded a racist for backing Emanuel instead of the other candidates? Time will tell.
