    New tone? David Axelrod spoke with National Journal’s Beth Reinhard in a phone interview, excerpts of which were posted a few minutes ago. In the interview, Axelrod decried the “politics of obstruction” — and then compared Republicans to Robespierre:
    NJ President Obama has been vague about what he would accomplish in his second term.

    NJ How would the president accomplish those goals with a Republican-controlled House and possibly Senate?

    AXELROD They have had a policy of obstruction from the day the president arrived. When the president is reelected, it will be a rejection of the politics of obstruction. There’s this reign of terror going on in the Republican Party.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised to hear this kind of rhetoric from the flailing and failing Obama campaign. Axelrod and his cohorts have gotten outfought, outraised, and outclassed in two short months after having the field all to themselves for over a year. Yesterday, the campaign accused Mitt Romney of being a felon, which prompted a demand for an apology that will not be coming forthwith, almost assuredly.

    Axelrod is not just a cheap demagogue, he’s also a cheap small-d democrat. Voters sent a Republican-controlled House to Washington specifically to force a change in policy, a message that Axelrod and Barack Obama ignored. The House, by the way, has passed budgets and more than a dozen jobs bills. It’s the Democratic-controlled Senate that has been the obstruction, refusing to pass budgets so that conference committees can resolve issues, and ignoring the House jobs bills altogether. Obama has shown zero leadership on this issue, griping about Republican dissent while ignoring completely that his own party has yet to cast one single supporting vote in three tries on his own budget proposals, and won’t even attempt to hold a vote on Obama’s tax proposals.

    Voters sent Republicans to Washington in 2010 because the economy wasn't improving fast enough and the GOP promised "Jobs. Jobs. Jobs." Instead, the GOP has voted against women and against Health Care Reform. 33 times against Health Care reform, to be precise. They have never voted in favour of any jobs program in the year and a half they have been in office.

    Prior to that, the GOP set an all-time record for filibusters and threats of filibusters.

    High ranking GOP officials are on record saying that their number one goal is to have a GOP President after this next election.

    Calling them obstructionists is being nice.

    Let's clarify.. The GOP has NOT voted 33 times against health care reform. They've voted 33 times against ObamaTax. And Obama should cry us all a big freaking river over the GOP filibustering his agenda. His ability to pass the giant stimulus for his friends and getting ObamaTax passed show that if he really wants something, he can find a way to make it happen. He's an arrogant asshole that stated "I won" and thought that meant people should give him whatever he wanted.
    As for obstruction and not getting things done, ask Harry Reid how many House bills the Senate is refusing to bring to the floor.
