Axelrod: Yeah, I’d probably use the GSA, Solyndra, and Secret Service scandals against a Republican president

posted at 12:30 pm on April 22, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

“I think people will judge him [Barack Obama] on the totality,” David Axelrod tells CNN’s Candy Crowley about the rash of scandals in the Obama administration, “not these transient stories.”  Crowley, however, doesn’t let Axelrod off the hook:

CROWLEY: So if this were happening in a Republican administration, would you be one of the first guys out there going, “Hey, this guy’s in charge”?

AXELROD: Maybe, although I have to say that the stories that stick are the ones that are really reflective and emblematic of an administration.

Maybe? Isn’t this the same guy who attacked Romney for the way he traveled with his dog in 1983?  Talk about transient stories.

Meanwhile, on Meet the Press, Axelrod compared John Boehner to Robespierre, or something:

Republicans have engaged in a “reign of terror” on Capitol Hill, forcing their members into lockstep opposition to President Obama – even Republicans who “know better” – Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod said on Sunday.

Axelrod was trying to explain how “good Republicans” would work with Obama in a second term to pass comprehensive immigration reform — an effort that Obama didn’t bother to pursue when he had near-supermajorities in both chambers of Congress for two full years.  That’s an absurd statement, and National Journal calls Axelrod out for his hyperbole:

Students of history may associate the “Reign of Terror” with fates far worse than partisan politics. It often refers to the blood-soaked French Revolution, when thousands died at the blade of the guillotine.

No one has ever accused this President and this administration of being students of history.

So it is back to the Tea Party as terrorist.

Barack should know what a terrorist is since he is good friends with one Bill Ayers.

The improving economy is giving the president poll momentum in many of the 14 states deemed critical.

This is the headline at Yahoo News along with a smiling picture of Obama.

Then above that is the pic of a haggard looking Romney with the captions “Romney budget” “guns over butter” “cuts to basic services” and the “reign of terror” sub-headline.

THIS is where SoundByte Americans that are called “independents” get a lot of their news.

THIS is who will decide the election?

Obama acts smug but he ate a pug.

Rusty Allen on April 22, 2012 at 12:49 PM

The absurd thing is, everyone knows Democrats would not hesitate to “go for the throat” with any of these scandals were the roles reversed. The Obama (first Black President) administration is swimming in such a sewer of corruption that a nonpartisan press would be getting awards handed to them on a silver platter if they were to even report basic facts.

Everything gets downplayed and blamed on Bush, when they are forced to report on something.

Romney on spending: Guns triumph over butter

WASHINGTON (AP) — Reducing government deficits Mitt Romney’s way would mean less money for health care for the poor and disabled and big cuts to nuts-and-bolts functions such as food inspection, border security and education.

……….and then down a few paragraphs you read that his proposed budget is IN LINE WITH THAT OF BUSH 43.

But the grab-and-go headline is that the disabled will be sicker, etc.

I can’t wait for President Romney. I remember in 2004 there were many Anybody but Bush voters. Not enough, thank God, but still quite a few. The reason they didn’t succeed is because the alternative was not any better and would have been worse. Kerry was an incredibly weak candidate, like Dole. This time around there will be more than enough Anybody but Obama voters b/c the alternative IS better. Of course, a ham sandwich would be better, so probably not saying much. Obama is now the incredibly weak candidate.

These crazy conservative policies like eliminating the minimum wage discourages poor people from looking for work and instead relying on welfare.

But that won’t stop them from feeding their radical base with lies they know will motivate them to the polls. What a shame.

Obama has increased the size of the federal govt. by 30% in 3 yrs. He’s added nearly 150,000 new fed employees. None of which has been paid for, hence the 5 TRILLION dollar deficits in under 4 yrs. The gobsmacking fiscal insanity of your hero and Reid and Pelosi makes them criminal! Your Buffett gimmicks won’t help this economy and if you don’t know that, then you really are the stupid one.

You are really proud that Harry Reid and party have broken the law? That they can’t even fulfill their basic legislative duty of budgeting? This is what passes for “core principles” on the Dem side?

Umm the congress has to approve any wars. So, why don’t you go (since you don’t like MY LINKS) and find out how many congressmen actually said no? I will give you a hint… it was only 3 out of all of congress.

“I think people will judge him [Barack Obama] on the totality,”

I think people will judge Romney in the same manner.

Actions speak louder than words, and neither candidate have a thing they can proudly point to without being soundly rebuffed.

You and I have conversed before but you seem to have gotten a much nastier tone lately. Your boy losing getting you upset? You should change your nic to angryuppereastside.

You must think the true middle class Americans are stupid.

Uppereastside on April 22, 2012 at 1:23 PM

No, but you certainly are. I would think that eventually you would grow tired of demonstrating your breathtaking ignorance here.
Nice of all the trolls to swarm in here to flail away trying to support Axehole.

Aviator on April 22, 2012 at 1:43 PM

You are funny Uppereastside, now you are losing the argument you have to go after the Iraq War, that liberate people from the hands of Saddam Hussin, that war was authorize by Congress in 2002.

Barack NEVER went to congress for his ILLEGAL WAR he did last year.

BroncosRock on April 22, 2012 at 1:44 PM

Well as long as your crew continues to shower the rich with tax breaks while expecting the middle class to pick up the tab, there won’t be any “budgets” or “entitlement reform” from us. You must think the true middle class Americans are stupid.

Uppereastside on April 22, 2012 at 1:23 PM

Seems to me your peeps are in charge and have extended the so called tax cuts for the so called wealthy. Not sure how the pubs can pass legislation and make it law without Barry’s signing it. Nice try though. Now go take your meds.

Um, ok. Irony meter = 10! Practice what you preach! WHere’s YOUR outrage at Obama for pissing away BILLIONS of dollars on green companies that go belly up every other week? What about his bundlers all getting cushy jobs? His cronies getting all kinds of subsidies from taxpayers? WHat about all his lies about funding ObamaCare? About unemployment? About the stimulus? About Bowles-Simpson?

Christ the list goes on, and on…where’s your fake outrage?

No, I think you are stupid. Next?
Obama has increased the size of the federal govt. by 30% in 3 yrs. He’s added nearly 150,000 new fed employees. None of which has been paid for, hence the 5 TRILLION dollar deficits in under 4 yrs. The gobsmacking fiscal insanity of your hero and Reid and Pelosi makes them criminal! Your Buffett gimmicks won’t help this economy and if you don’t know that, then you really are the stupid one.
You are really proud that Harry Reid and party have broken the law? That they can’t even fulfill their basic legislative duty of budgeting? This is what passes for “core principles” on the Dem side? Well you can keep your criminal core then, jerkoff. I’ll throw in w/fiscal sanity and spending restraint.
JAM on April 22, 2012 at 1:36 PM

Calm down! Don’t get your thongs in a twist. As long as you continue to support a middle class to upper class wealth distribution policy, your fiscal sanity illusion will never happen. You know it and everyone with a brain knows it. Better start applying for that Chineee green card if you ate looking for a country with fiscal sanity.

Apparently your comprehension of the English language as spoken here in America leaves a great deal to be desired. Here, let me help you out a little.

il·le·gal
   [ih-lee-guhl] Show IPA
adjective
1.
forbidden by law or statute.
2.
contrary to or forbidden by official rules, regulations, etc.: The referee ruled that it was an illegal forward pass.
noun
3.
Informal . illegal alien.

Now that we have defined the word illegal let us also note that the Vice President of the United States (That’s who Dick Cheney was) does not fund any military action against anyone only the United States Congress can fund.

Moreover, as Vice President Dick Cheney likewise did not and could not authorize the use of military force (again, for the obviously brain dead that was congress) your assertion is not only factually incorrect in its premise it was mind numbingly stupid and clearly a symptom of your Cranial-Rectal disorder.

How about this, go find your facts and link them here. Then you can debate. Until then, you should like a teenage girl, who isn’t getting her way. Sound familiar?

Rich getting even richer under Obama administration

Mr. Saez is the E. Morris Cox professor of economics and director of the Center for Equitable Growth at the University of California at Berkeley, no bastion of conservatism. Mr. Saez’s field of expertise is public economics. According to Mr. Saez, fully 93 percent of the income gains made during the Obama “recovery” in 2010 went to the despised top 1 percent, while the other 99 percent saw only a 0.2 percent growth in real income.

Axelrod looks like a catfish, but acts like a flounder.

SouthernGent on April 22, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Actually, he looks and acts more like a hungry shark. Also glad to see posters have diffused and debunked uppereastside, who apparently thinks because he/she has lots of money, he/she can adopt a patronizing and liberal air….
