Well, that didn’t take long: it’s only nine days after the election, and Obama is back to insulting his base.
It’s not clear whether the Axelrod interview is actual policy or just a trial balloon; I certainly hope it’s the latter. If it’s the former, it reflects the White House moving into the Mother of All Defensive Crouches; with the biggest megaphone on the planet, Obama doesn’t think that he can blame the Republicans for holding middle class tax cuts hostage.
What to do? First, you can sign the PCCC petition, here. Second, as soon as you get the next fundraising letter from either the Obama campaign or Organizing for America, unsubscribe with a message explaining why.
In a perfect world, we could organize an “unsubscribe” day, where hundreds of thousands of people would unsubscribe at the same time. In this world, we can still send a signal: Mr. President, we can also play this game.
All right, Mark: get out your pom-poms.
