The Axe Man

Yesterday, everyone on Air Force One was jacked about senior adviser David Axelrod's appearance on "Fox News Sunday." Big Guy has taken some heat the past couple of days for not performing well on the stump - not my fault, from where I stand - and Axelrod decided that instead of explaining Big O's performance, he'd just spend time ripping into former Vice President Dick Cheney.

We absolutely hate Cheney. Not because he was a more than competent vice president, or because he could make a speech without sticking his foot in his mouth, or because he had better hair plugs than Joey B., but because he just doesn't seem to care about us, the Obama Administration. I mean, what gives? We bait him, pay a lot of attention to him, offer to make him a political bogeyman for years to come - attention someone like Newt Gingrich would kill for - and what do we get in return? Nada. It's like he has better things to do with his time.

But Axelrod doesn't. In fact, he's pretty much being paid to do two things: attack Cheney every chance he gets, and attack Rush Limbaugh at every turn. And Dave has been doing phenomenally well at both. Someone suggested that a senior White House adviser should probably be doing more. But folks need to understand, when you've built a presidential administration's entire political operation on attacking two people, that kind of focus can be really time-consuming.

  1. Hello TOTUS,

    Rumor has it you once dated Wheel of Fortune's Vanna White. Is it true? After all, she turns letters, and you scroll words, so you seem very compatible.

  3. OK…wait a minute…the main stream media has been telling me there could ONLY be right wing attack machines? How can this be?

  4. The Obama administration has perfected the blame game. It got old about two months ago, though.

  6. Divide and Conquer it isn't a new concept. Are we Mice or are we (Wo)Men. I am an American First I don't need any Political qualifiers.

  7. Speaking of getting axed..... don't know where else to ask, but have you withdrawn from Facebook? Totus is missing from my friend list.

  8. This post is hilarious! LOL!

    Cheney acts like he has something better to do with his time, and Newt Gingrich would kill for that kind of attention. That's gold, seriously. LOL

    Imus guest this morning, Frank Rich of the New York Times. They discuss Frank's take on Wall Street vs Detroit Bail Outs, the double standard. There is a romance that surrounds Americans love of their cars however Americans view of Wall Street not so sentimental. Frank Rich thinks Detroit and Wall Street are guilty of the same things.

    Plus Obama's trip abroad.

    Was that your cue TOTUS? It's still George W Bush's fault...Obama represents real Americans :)

  11. Hey, did you blog about Obamie prostrating himself before his real master, the Saudi King?

    This guy is a fool and an embarrassment. What an uneducated turd!

  12. TOTUS, you must insist that BO spend more time lip syncing his words with you.

    you are so underappreciated.

  13. Axe needs to stop giving Big Guy speaking tips. Axe says "uhh" just slightly more than Obama. It's excruciating listening to him. Here's a tip to Axe and the Big Guy: when you're thinking of the next word, SHUT UP and wait for it to come.

  14. Mr. Switzer, I've long noticed the same thing about Axe (and D'oh!, too, of course). "Excruciating" is exactly the word. Just reeks to high heaven of dissembling. Snakes of a feather...

    RE: Axe's reappearance on the public scene, I guess they decided to let him out of his cell in the White House basement. Seems like he's been in there ever since he (D'oh!) said that B.O. HAD been talking with Blago of Chicago around the time of the attempted sale of Senate seat #666. Ol' B.O. got real pouty-faced about that.
