Axelrod, Government Is Too Big

In defense of President Obama’s ignorance of what is going on in the Internal Revenue Service (and the State and Justice Departments), David Axelrod finds himself agreeing with what the Tea Party folks have said since the beginning of this administration. The only difference is Axlerod is attempting to excuse abuse by the embedded liberal government employees because, the government is too big. Whereas the Tea Party continues to say that because the government is too big and getting bigger, it is limiting freedom and liberty, by-passing the Constitution, and with Obamacare, is usurping one sixth of the private sector economy.

Axelrod said, “Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast.” And that is exactly the way the community-organizer-turned-president wants it. He can accept, or reject, responsibility for whatever he chooses.

There is a dichotomy there that Axelrod is missing. Welcome to the Tea Party Mr. Axelrod.
