When you read this from former Senior Adviser, David Axelrod it is statements like this that just makes you shake your head:
Axelrod blamed Republicans lawmakers in Washington for taking partisan lines and preventing Obama from accomplishing major initiatives.
"We honestly thought when we got to Washington, we'd get some cooperation from folks across the aisle," he said.
He then called the current field of GOP presidential candidates “the most ideological, partisan group of Republicans in my lifetime."
Again, you did not know what you were up against from the get go?
See it is statements like this from Obama's so called, "inner circle" that keeps me parked in Missouri, the "Show Me State".
While Obama is now getting fired up, since his poll numbers have cratered, he still has these "smarter than smart" advisers running around out here saying shit like this.
Do you read how out of touch that statement is? I mean really. What kind of planet was Axelrod and crew on during the 8 years of the Bush Regime? I mean really. Did they really think that these corrupt, crooks who lost power would be all nice to the new guys in town? This speaks volumes on how the Obama White House Political Team continued to get everything WRONG.
Bush and Co., did not give a mickey-fickey about the Democrats while in office. The Democrats were IRRELEVANT to these power mongers. In fact, Bush and Co. treated the Democrats like they were Cinderella, until Cindy's shoe was found in November of 2006. So in a nutshell, Axelrod and the smartest guys in town were totally clueless what happened during that time, but more importantly how corrupt, immoral and power hungry the Republicans were that they would do and say anything to get power?
Sorry, folks these individuals hanging around President Obama is the reason why he is out trying to shore up his depressed base. A base that has been hungry along with independents for this White House to act on issues that matter to them (like JOBS, real HEALTHCARE, FORECLOSURES, just shit that impacts families), but we have idiots like Axelrod living in deficit fantasy land.
This is why Obama is in the dumps in the polling.
Until Obama changes, it will stay the same.
