Axelrod: Obama thinks Boston bombings could be related to tax day
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 04/16/2013 7:24:03 AM PDT by Windy City Conservative

In explaining why President Obama didn't call the Boston bombings a "terrorist attack," former adviser David Axelrod said, "I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day":

"The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11," Axelrod said of the phrase "terrorist attack."

"You use those words and it means something very specific in people's mind. And I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day. Was it someone who was pro--you know, you just don't know. And so I think his attitude is, let's not put any inference into this, let's just make clear that we're going to get the people responsible."

Axelrod and the gang SO want the bomber to be a right winger who hates taxes, they Sooo want this. Wouldn’t surprise me if they plucked some right wing guy from the crowd and planted the evidence on him.

What goes through Hussein’s “mind” is doubtless constantly warped. Warped indeed.

Remember when the Austin Barking Moonbat flew a plan into the IRS building there? The Left was quick to point fingers at the Right and slow to reflect on their own extremists.

Of course... that's why DHS and FEMA always have mobile command posts lurking near Super Bowl venues and other events that draw large crowds.

I said in another thread, this could be Obama's Kristallnacht...the opportunity to lay down some serious new directives against those on the right.

former adviser David Axelrod said, "I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day"

Then I say this is one surrender that I can fully support the Appeasement Monkey in the White House.
Stop the bloodshed! Cancel taxes now!

Actually I doubt much is going on in that empty, abandoned warehouse of a mind - other than the latest ESPN schedule, his next golf date, and the occasional tumbleweed of a random thought that blows across those empty caverns...

Of course, the thought would never occur to Axelrod and his constitutionally-illiterate "progressives" that the ideas and principles underlying Patriot's Day are anathema to those who wish America and Americans harm!!

The plans for this was hatched right there in the white house by the Muslim brotherhood the ones Obama and his crew of Communist gave offices to..

That's what I think....

My look ahead at MSNBC analysis

AHHH , THE Tea party...I knew demonization of higher taxes would trigger something like this...
we need a more civil way of communicating...
and those universal gun checks...theys would have stopped this..gun shows...
The sequester too was part of this...

Axelrod is still plugged in to everything going on in the White House. That he is throwing this out makes me wonder if the investigation might be focusing on domestic terrorism.

You can always count on this creep Axelrod to talk shiite and talk it every day. Honor and truth are irrelevant to him. Slime, sleaze and smears are his triplet gods. He does his smears (like this one) in the passive-aggressive style kinda gay if you ask me

Maybe it’s not projection. Maybe, and I suppose I have just as much right to spectulate politically just as Assholerod, Chrissy Matthews, Sink Ungur, etc ,etc are doing....

Perhaps Assholerod actually planned it.

He’s like the Smoking Guy from the X-files. He got some operatives to plant the bombs, detonate them, and now he’s ready to blame it on the Right, Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Partiers, political opponents of Hussein/Pelosi/Reid, and of course, aided and abetted in this endeavor by a willing and able media....
