Skip to comments.Axelrod Asked If He's Acting Like a Birther "Whackjob"

Jake Tapper talks to David Axelrod about the Obama administration's allegation that the Chamber of Commerce is using foreign money to fund the group's political activities--a charge the Chamber denies. This part of the interview is pretty amusing:
TAPPER: But what do you say to people who argue you are demonizing an organization for a charge that nobody knows if it's true or not?
AXELROD: Well Im not demonizing the Chamber of Commerce. Im simply suggesting to them that they disclose the source of the $75 million that they are spending in campaigns and put to rest, put to rest the questions that have been, that have been raised.
TAPPER: Isn't that like the whackjobs that tell the president he needs to show them his full long-form birth certificate so he can put to rest the questions that have been raised?
AXELROD: The presidents birth certificate has been available to people.
TAPPER: The long form?
AXELROD: Someone once in the course of this debate about whether we should have a law to force these organizations to disclose where theyre money is coming from in the campaigns, someone said, and I think theyre right the only people who want to keep things secret are folks who have something to hide. If the Chamber doesnt have anything to hide about these contributions, and I take them at their word that they dont, then why not disclose? Why not let people see where their money is coming from?
He was never on board with this President and he thinks Axelrod's caucus strategy in the primaries was sneaky and undemocratic.
He's enjoying this.
Go JAKE!! He’s the ONLY media person asking about the LONG FORM!!
Axelrod sure changed the subject fast. Hahaha!!
Axelrod. Typical elite. So arrogant in their own superiority that they can not see the forest for the trees..
I thought that was interesting. Seems he is not buying into the Internet COLB document as proof.
Alexrod thought he was deflecting when asked about the "long form"...but his comment was actually an admission that Obama has something to hide!
I cannot stand to watch Axelrod..He drips with everything troubling and abhorrent to decent Americans.
Jake is NOT a KOOL AID drinker....he’s got a BRAIN!
the only people who want to keep things secret are folks who have something to hide.
IRONIC that the greaseball’s answer (above) came right after JACOB asked about the long form.
I think Jake Tapper must lurk here at Free Republic. This exact analogy was drawn just yesterday on a thread posted here. Tapper seems like a bright guy, but I don’t believe in coincidences where liberals are concerned.
A hitlery clinton liberal, as tho that’s a good thing.
Soft on terrorists, corrupt to the core, and a sneaky anti Semite too, wishing the end of Israel in her heart of hearts.
The hitlery clinton who helped cover up Vince Foster’s mysterious death.
The hitlery clinton who used FBI files to get info on her ‘enemies’.
That kind of hitlery clinton?
Mark my words, this was not a lone person opening this subject in the media. There is something deeper going on here. Tapper had the go ahead from higher ups on this deal. They are going to slowly open this debate up to either force O out or get him to resign.
Hoo boy! Those birthers sure are whackjobs aren’t they yukyukyuk. Soooo, anyway, what about that long form ?
AXELROD: Someone once in the course of this debate about whether we should have a law to force these organizations to disclose where theyre money is coming from in the campaigns, someone said, and I think theyre right the only people who want to keep things secret are folks who have something to hide.
Then tell Barack to AUTHORIZE RELEASE OF HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE THAT REVEALS WHAT HOSPITAL HE WAS BORN IN!! What's he hiding??
Carley, we are all well aware of Hilary Clinton's past and her ideology.
Try and think this through a little.
If the Clinton Democrats and their media allies are breaking ranks with Obama's people and publicly taking them to task, this means that the Democrats are disorganized and that there are opportunities for Republicans.
And the "hitlery" stuff is a bit childish.
She's a terrible human being and an enemy of this republic, but if you call everyone you don't like "Hitler" then the insult kind of loses all meaning.
If anything, she's more of an Allende.
So Meathead, where’s the long form birf certificate?
Answer the question.
