Take it from David Axelod: any time there are severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that’s unhealthy.

It would appear so if one were to listen to David Axelrod, President Obama’s Senior Advisor. Appearing on CBS’ Face The Nation this past Sunday, Axelrod was at once threatened and befuddled by the tea parties that were held throughout the United States on April 15th.
When asked about the tea parties, Axelrod told guest host Harry Smith two things that have raised eyebrows.
First, 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.” To Smith’s credit he pressed Axelrod on the matter when he asked, “Is this unhealthy?”
Axelrod replied, “Well, we’re — this is a country where we value our liberty — our liberties and our ability to express ourselves. And so far these are expressions.”
The SERIOUS work of retrieving our liberty is just now getting cranked up!
If the Obama Administration is ill equipped to handle the protests of half a million Americans then they had better get used to it because there is a very good chance our economic situation could take yet another turn for the worse. Then things will really be “unhealthy” for the Obama Administration because there will be a lot more people on the streets assembling to protest.
In which case the next time we see a bewildered look on David Axelrod’s face will be when the American people put Barack Obama out of work.
Let me be the first to promise I’ll do MY part to make that happen.
