While over a million people gathered last week to protest excessive government spending, earmarks, taxpayer-funded bailouts, and tax increases, Senior White House adviser had a different take. He was asked on CNN’s Face the Nation his thoughts on the TEA parties that took place and his response was less than supportive:
“I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that’s unhealthy,” Axelrod said.
Unhealthy? Hmmmm… We think not. What you saw was a level of frustration and anger in an unprecedented way by taxpayers from across the political spectrum turning out to protest a government that has lost its mind and forgotten who their employers are — the taxpayers.
Axelrod later tried to backpedal unsuccessfully and cover his remarks saying:
“Well, this is a country where we value our liberties and our ability to express ourselves, and so far these are expressions,” he said.
Moments later, Axelrod inserted his foot back into his mouth by spinning another web of lies put out by the Obama administration.
“The thing that bewilders me is that this president just cut taxes for 95 percent of the American people,” Axelrod argued. “I think the tea bags should be directed elsewhere because he certainly understands the burden that people face.”
Fellow Patriots, they don’t get it so we need to continue putting pressure on our legislators and political leaders until they do. Begin by clicking the TEA Party logo above to continue to build this movement and to find out more about how you can get involved.
It’s amazing to me how the politicians just DO NOT GET IT. Way to go on exposing this horrible “spin” that they are trying to put on the TEA parties.
well written article, NN. Keep up the good work. The arrogance of these socialists is amazing. Did you see the report that came out today on the TARP funds? Government Inspector said there was a good possibility of corruption in the TARP initiative? Well, duh! These government hacks just don’t get it!

Not to play to much on the pig pun, but you folks are a bunch of hog wash. Where was the outrage when the Bush administration was spending $1 trillion on an elective war — which he and Cheney lied about? What if Bush didn’t authorize the $750 billion TARP funds and why didn’t you gather and protest the White House then? It’s pretty plain to see there’s a concerted effort on behalf of right wing groups to stir up an unprecedented level of hate in this country, and trust me, there’s nobody sitting in the White House scheming to take away your rights or your guns…
