“What, Breitbart was wrong, that can’t be,” the President blurted out. “Yes, Mr. President,” Valerie said while Rahm supported her claim. “Holy shit, my God, that means I fired a loyal black-American government employee without cause in front of the entire country, based on a right wing blogger. What the hell’s wrong with me,” as both Rahm and Valerie looked at each other tight-lipped? “What the hell is going on here, Rahm, Valerie?” “Well sir, you did want her fired yesterday, so we did it.” “Listen Valerie I don’t need your happy horseshit, and that see I told you so attitude.” "Sorry sir, but you were so hell bent on firing her with no proof. What did you think was going to happen if you were wrong?”
Rahm, kept looking over his shoulder as he thought, what am I doing here with this half wit that never thinks things through and leaves us to clean up his mess while he goes on vacations and plays another round of golf. Rahm, in his normal smart ass manner commented, “well Barry, should we count this firing as a job created or a job saved?” Hearing that the President flipped his ignore sign on and directed his attention back to Valerie.
“I have an idea Mr. President, let’s blame this on Fox, Glenn Beck and O‘Reilly .” “Good idea Valerie,” the President said. “OK Valerie, you take care of that.” Rahm, was still looking around for snipers as the President asked him to come up with more damage control on the Daily Caller article that now was spreading like wildfire. The Caller also hinted that they had more information and would be slowly releasing it over the coming weeks. The thought of this turning into a weekly series of articles exposing his operatives in the mainstream media left him with a throbbing headache. Rahm thought it would be good if he could get Keith Olbermann over at MSNBC off his vacation to charge Fox and it’s talking heads with racism, again.
Rahm wished he was back in Chicago, since the Blago case was cooling off and the fix was in for the ex-Governor. The heat was also off on most in the White House since no one was called to testify. The damage would have been incalculable if his case had gotten any deeper and Rahm knew they had dodged a bullet as the 537th day of the Obama Presidency kept bobbing and weaving.
