WASHINGTON: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emaunuel, who served as US President Barack Obama’s first chief of staff, says his former boss’ re-election was far from a sure thing.
“There’s no doubt there’s a challenge politically because the economy is not where the American middle-class family needs it to be for their bottom line,” Emanuel said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Emanuel said the American people would hold Obama and other elected officials accountable for the faltering economy when they cast their votes in 2012. “Everybody in public life, everybody in corporate life, is accountable for that result,” Emanuel said.
