It’s a sure sign of the deep-seatedness of the beliefs in the individual as to how long they will cling to those beliefs. David Axelrod (who looks more and more like Charmin’s Mister Whipple Every day) is apparently a dyed-in-the-wool leftist, since he just keeps repeating the same old neo-leftist threats, even after Meet The Press’s David Gregory give his a chance to retract or restate them.
MR. GREGORY: You’ve talked about a price for Republicans if they continue to block the president’s agenda. What should that price be? What will it be?
MR. AXELROD: Well, I think there’s a price for both parties if the impression is what we’re more interested in our own jobs than we are in the jobs of the American people, if we play politics on every single issue. I’ll give you an example. We believe that in the near–in the, in the mid and long term, we have to deal with these deficits, that’s why the president has proposed a, a freeze on domestic discretionary spending, something that the Republican leadership actually suggested when we had a bipartisan meeting some weeks ago. But when a measure came up in the Senate this week, or this past week, for a bipartisan commission, a statutory commission to deal with the fiscal crisis–because we understand we can only deal with that together–it lost by seven votes, and the seven votes were seven Republican co-sponsors of that amendment who then walked away from their own proposal. Well, we have to get serious about this. So I think the American people will punish any party who they believe is playing politics ahead of solving problems, and, and they should.
November is looking better and better every day with this kind of deep-seated thinking going on. Like Thelma and Louise, right off that cliff, buddy.
