They just don't get it, do they?

Quote:
The White House has a message to the tens of thousands of protesters who railed against big government during a rally in Washington Saturday: You're wrong.

White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that the protesters, part of the "tea party" movement, do not represent the views of the broader public when it comes to health care reform.

"I don't think it's indicative of the nation's mood," Axelrod said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "You know, I don't think we ought to be distracted by that. My message to them is, they're wrong."

Axelrod said that President Obama has made clear he wants to "build on the system that we have," dismissing concerns that the president is proposing a large-scale government intervention and claiming broad support for the president's plan.

The rally, and others like it, have been billed as "tea parties," part of a movement that takes its cue from the Boston Tea Party and other imagery from the days of the founding fathers. On Saturday, men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day" -- Election Day 2010.

FreedomWorks Foundation, a conservative organization led by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, had organized several groups from across the country for the Saturday event, dubbed a "March on Washington."

Some demonstrators specifically protested government spending and health care reform plans.

"I'm Not Your ATM," one sign said. Another slogan was, "Obamacare makes me sick."

Some signs, reflecting the growing intensity of the health care debate, depicted Obama with the mustache of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Many made reference to Obama as a socialist or communist, and another imposed his face on that of the villainous Joker from "Batman."

Axelrod suggested Sunday that the more over-the-top demonstrations were representative of a minority view -- the kind exhibited at some town hall meetings over the summer.

"I don't believe that some of the angriest, most strident voices we saw during the summer were representative of the thousands of town hall meetings that went on around the country that came off peacefully, that were constructive, people voicing their points of view," Axelrod said. "You know, one of the great things about our country is people can express themselves even if they're not representative of the majority."

haha omg I love it...

I wonder how many people in the country share the same views as the protestors but just aren't able/willing to participate in these marches (10-1, 100-1...)?? I have yet to see the masses of people marching in the street demanding health care reform, maybe they are stuck at home trying to get insurance

thats funny because when Bill Clinton went to korea to make a deal for the 2 females that were in prison.

I wanted to say to North Korea Bill Clinton does not represent the views of the broader public in America.

Greatness.

Does it surprise anyone here that nobody in D.C. can't count?

I bet they can't say the same for the inauguration...

btw, how is it that 3 million people (mostly black from what I saw on TV) can get into and out of DC in a matter of hours, but could not evacuate New Orleans in 3-5 days?

The people that went to DC could afford to go to DC, and can afford to leave it.

They were giving the oprotunity to leave, and no one did.

You know, I remember seeing pictures just like that from the million man march, and Dr. Kings speech.

On those two occasions, all of the media said there was more than a million people there. And these pictures look about the same amount of people as the pictures from the other two events.

Is this new media math?

Or is fluoride in the water doing it's job, dumb down America?



All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

I heard today that they are saying that the protestors present in DC this past Saturday do not reflect the views of the masses. Everyone who shares the same views should send a letter to Congress, lets see if that shows that enough of us share the same views to boot their asses
