Axelrod: Government ‘So Vast,‘ Obama can't know about wrongdoing


quote:

The government is simply too big for President Obama to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch, his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, told MSNBC.


quote:

Axelrod also defended the administration against criticism of the Department of Justice’s decision to seize reporters’ phone records, noting that Joe Scarborough had criticized the administration for the number of national-security leaks that had occurred. Scarborough was having none of it: ”I’ve heard the president’s defenders trying to say this, and I congratulate you guys for going off into a room, calling each other, and coming up with this bogus argument, but never did I suggest that 100 AP reporters have all of their phone records seized, their cell-phone records seized, their home phone numbers seized.”

The government is SO VAST that it is out of control and no longer obeys WE THE PEOPLE? So, what should we do about that?

The obvious answer is more taxes, more spending and even more government to monitor governemnt abuses.

No the answer is a more efficient government dedicated to meeting the needs of all the people not just Obama's cronies

Is there an "efficient" way to try to meet all the needs of all the people?

No, the answer is to make the federal government smaller. Efficiency and the removal of corruption can only occur by decreasing the size and power of the federal government.

Well now, isn't THAT just too fricking convenient?

So what do these fricks do? Advocate for even bigger government, of course.

He might not be able to know what every worker is doing, but he sure is responsible for knowing what cabinent members and department heads are doing.

BULL shite. Government is not supposed to meet your needs. You are supposed to take care of yourself. Government is the necessary evil that must be kept small and on a tight leash. What we have now is a leviathan that needs to be slain.

sounds like a great argument for a reduction in the size and scope of FedGov to me. I wonder if that point was lost on Axelrod

Old idea. Dems first used it during Carter. Economy was in the tank. Explanation: "No one person can be President... we need a committee of Presidents to handle economy, foreign affairs, etc."

Amazingly, Reagan had no problem running things as a lone President.

Since the government is too vast to keep up with, maybe we should start an agency to keep an eye on everything that the prez can't. And then maybe another agency to watch over them as well.

Well in that case, Bush shouldn't be held accountable for Abu Ghraib...


Or the slow response of FEMA...


Or the crash of the housing market...


Damn it, government is just too big.

The liberals were saying the same thing when Carter was President.

Ask Axelrod, who made it bigger.
