Those of you who participated in “Tea Parties” on April 15th have been vilified as “Plutocrats” or worse. Be relieved. The king of AstroTurf has now pronounced you as nothing more than “Unhealthy”.
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.
Axelrod was asked on CBS’s “Face the Nation” about the “spreading and very public disaffection” with the president’s fiscal policies seen at the “Tea Party” rallies around the country last week.
“I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that’s unhealthy,” Axelrod said.
Axelrod appeared to backtrack when pressed on whether the movement is unhealthy.
“Well, this is a country where we value our liberties and our ability to express ourselves, and so far these are expressions,” he said.
Nice to see what high regard you all are held in by the White House, isn’t it?
