Another one of Marxist Obama's hammer and sickle sidekicks has had his political door slammed in his face by the Illinois Appeals Court. Emanuel thought he was going to waltz into Chicago and get to be Mayor. But in a 2-1 Appeals Court decision, he cannot be on the Feb. 22, 2011, ballot for Mayor. Being that he is a dual citizen of Israel and the U.S., maybe he should understand that he is not wanted in America any longer ... and should pack his bags and go back to the land of imposter's called Israeli and be with the rest of his ilk.

CHICAGO – An Illinois Appeals Court ruled Monday that former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel's name can't appear on the ballot for Chicago mayor because he didn't live in the city in the year before the election. The court voted 2-1 to overturn a judge's ruling to keep Emanuel's name on the Feb. 22 ballot.

Those challenging Emanuel's candidacy have argued that the Democrat doesn't meet the one-year residency requirement because he rented out his Chicago home and moved his family to Washington to work for President Barack Obama for nearly two years.

Emanuel has said he always intended to return to Chicago and was only living in Washington at the request of the president.

There was no immediate response from Emanuel on Monday. The appellate court's ruling is not the final step in the process and its decision can be appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court. Emanuel is one of several candidates vying to replace Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, who didn't seek a seventh term. Emanuel moved back to Chicago in October after he quit working for Obama to campaign full-time.
