David Axelrod = dumbass

One of President Obama's closest advisors, David Axelrod called the 'Tea Party' movement "unhealthy" over the weekend.  He said "I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that's unhealthy".

Unhealthy?  Exercising the first amendment is unhealthy?  Really?  Hmm...

Well, we should take this with a grain of salt of course, since Mr. Axelrod is such a quality person.  Let's look at the some of the other people he's worked for prior to helping President Messiah save the world.

1.  Eliot Spitzer - Axelrod helped the hooker-addict get elected to governor of New York as a campaign advisor.  Nothing unhealthy there..moving along
2.  John Edwards - Axelrod was one of the main consultants on the John Edwards campaign.  He was eventually relieved of his responsibilities of developing advertising, but remained a spokesman.  One wonders if he knew of Mr. Edwards' extra-marital activities....probably not, completely healthy, move on.
3.  ASK services - Axelrod (the A in ASK) was partners in a political consulting/PR company which lobbied (gee, a lobbyist working for the Messiah?  NOOOOO!!!) for companies such as Exelon Corp (a nuclear energy company), AT&T, Cablevision, and ComEd.  Most ethical administration in history?  Check.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright criticized Axelrod about a year ago for being too white.  He said "while he was expert at promoting black candidates with white voters, he did not know much about relating to the black community...They're spiriting him away from people in the African-American community. David doesn't know the African-American church scene".  No word on what Reverend Wright thinks of the first amendment.

So, let me make sure I understand this correctly, Axelrod's opinion is:
  • La Raza organizing protests to support illegal aliens = Good for the country
  • ACORN staging protests and subverting the voter registration process = Good for the country
  • Various liberal groups protesting military actions in the war on terror = Good for the country
  • Code Pink disrupting congress and vandalising Marine Corp recruiting stations = Good for the country
  • People taking to the streets to defend the Constitution and runaway government spending and taxation(Republican OR Democrat) = Unhealthy
Yep, that sounds about like the logic of a dumbass.  Welcome to Dumbassville, Mr. Axelrod, population:  You.
