David Axelrod

When asked on Fox whether the president would accept some 8000 earmarks in the new spending bill David Axelrod made the preposterous statement that this was “old business” left over from the last Congress. So the president is now willing to accept “old business” and shrug his shoulders? It’s this sort of thing that convinces you the Obama team is deeply cynical — or is banking on everyone being in a coma (after reading their 401K statement or from anticipating the tax bill they are going to receive).
