Senior White House adviser David Axelrod on Sunday suggested the “Tea Party” movement is an “unhealthy” reaction to the tough economic climate facing the country.
Why are conservative movements "unhealthy", but liberal protests "healthy"? Everytime there is a liberal protest for whatever Democrats celebrate that it is an healthy expression of the rights of speech and petition. However, when conservatives come together it's all of a sudden not so healthy.
He went on to be "bewildered" as to why those who received a "tax cut" would be unhappy with Obama. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the "tax cut" was minimal at best. It wasn't significant enough to make a real difference in anyone's life. If I'm wrong tweet me. I'd like to hear from you. However, the added taxes to nicotine, and the proposed new tax on internet sales and energy will more than counter any tax cut received by Obama.
Axlerod, also, suggested that the tea bags need to be directed elsewhere. I agree with him on that. It needs to be directed at all of those that voted for the bailouts, porkulus, and the out-of-control spending bills.
In response to Axlerod, Democratic strategist James Carville called the TEA parties “harmless and damaging to Republicans.”
No, what is damaging to Republicans is spending money they don't have and driving up the national debt. That is one of the big reasons that the Democrats even were able to regain power.
