Posted on 03/16/2012 9:40:29 PM PDT by Fred
Top Obama re-election adviser David Axelrod posted and then deleted something of a head-scratching tweet Monday that included a link to a news story about menstruating Mormon women being barred from official ceremonies.

Axelrod does not make mistakes - all his moves are calculated.
Combover meant to say “menstruating muslim women”
musta been a typo, eh Dave
Too much too soon! Mitty aint the nom yet!
If not by the Rod himself, then by the devil.
You won’t “tweet” about your hero, Obama, OK-ing aborted babies’ BRAINS being used in lab tests, will ya?
Yeah...didn’t think so.
Axelrod does not want Mitt as the nominee...
Almost anybody would view this as silly, either now or then. This is talking about private ceremonies of the LDS and their criteria for qualifying to participate. Not even Obama has moved to the point of trying to intervene in such a matter... yet.
It’s great that mormanism is now a norm. Isn’t it?
Why is he focused on menstruating women?
Why is he focused on mormon dead dunking?
Both of those focuses are weird.
I sure don't. I think Mormonism is downright creepy and is nothing but a corrupt money-grubbing cult.
There's other things to talk about - years of experience, the economy, the value of the dollar, employment numbers, the economy, gas prices, the economy, deficit spending, seizure of private companies, the economy, ObamaCare, immigration, the economy. There's NO REASON WHATSOEVER for the Obama campaign to stoop in any way, shape or form to making this about Mormonism.
None. None at all. They got this whole thing covered.
Little Adolph is the top hatchetman of the Obama regime. Valerie Jarrett is the top hatchwoman, with Maoist Anita Dunn coming in a close second.
They will float smears just to keep the pot boiling. Axelord’s two mentors were Soviet agent of influence and Communist Party USA member David S. Canter and Don Rose, an admitted old lefty from the CPUSA political fronts of the 1940’s, and its anti-intelligence front, the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights, among other organizations.
If you “vet” (i.e. look into) the backgrounds of most of Obama’s top advisors in the political arena, you will scratch some kind of red. Jarrett has some skeletons in her closet (i.e. her late father-in-law, for one).
And remember, that any Democrat of influence from Chicago is either a Communist/marxist/socialist, a crook, or a crazy, or any combination thereof. Wright, Pleger, Rep. Danny Davis, Alice Palmer, Quinton Young, Bill Ayers - you get the picture - just people in the neighborhood.
And so if they are all that, they are a private affair still. If their cult means nothing but evil then why complain that they won’t let some of their women go to some of those evil ceremonies? It’s silly, it means nothing to the discourse of national politics, no more than similar ritual distinctions made by Orthodox Jews do.
Valerie Jarrett: IRANIAN of the DAY!!!!
Quote: “Every memory from Iran is a very happy memory,” Jarrett told me.
Are you a Mormon? I’m asking in the interest of disclosure.
It was just a hint of things to come, once Myth gets the nomination.
This is nothing compared to what they are planning....They will do a Jeremiah Wright number on the Mormons bigtime only this time...the press will pay attention...
Nope. Never was a Mormon, not one now, never will be. I think the LDS system is utterly bogus. And so what. America tolerates bogus religions in the interest of not squelching any true one. If Mitt’s Mormon influence threatens the US order that would be a matter of wrongly preferring a particular religion in the conduct of affairs of government.
As if the religion of liberalism weren’t at least equally looming?
It gets people TALKING about MORMONISM.
Not Romney. Not Obama. Not the election.
Mormonism. And what Mormons DO THAT IS DIFFERENT.
Then they’ll start to think about Romney being a Mormon himself and what that means to them, personally.
Only till Willard gets the numbers.
OK, but a flash twitter by Axelrod is hardly going to provoke a deep, impassioned national debate about the LDS. IMHO.
Wouldn’t it look ridiculously ham handed for Obama to declare at any time that these weird Mormons should let their ladies attend all their weird Mormon ceremonies? The parallel to Orthodox Jews would be drawn in half a New York minute and it would only bring ridicule upon Obama.
The flash and the deletion makes people wonder what they missed. They’ll look further if they’re curious.
This is just the beginning. There will be much more coming.
Like the Ax is some closely watched national prophet? Occam’s Razor suggests it is a political misstep that even the Rod caught.
Axelrod and his family/parents need some serious vetting. Knowing the Axelrod family has Soviet roots and Americanized family name that reportedly include Trotsky and Lenin it should be no surprise that a communist woman in Moscow had info about 1992 about Obama being groomed for POTUSA. That this is too far fetched for some who won’t deal with it I suggest they read the history of communist infiltration in the USA during and after WWII. McCarthy might have been too far out but Ike was too much withdrawn on the communist endeavors to change the USA. The matter goes even further back when the socialist Wilson wanted the USA in the League of Nations and set up the Federal Reserve Bank which is not a USA controlled money dealer/supplier. Of course Obama’s Muslim heritage complicates his vetting but it is not out of the communist spectrum. Look at Jarret.
Too many Saturday nights with Teddy?
The story that he linked to is a non-story. It’s not much of anything. But, the people who breathlessly follow his tweets will take notice of it. They will go to the story and look at it. They’ll frown and think. “Weird. Mormons are weird.”
That’s all it was meant to do.
“I think Mormonism is downright creepy and is nothing but a corrupt money-grubbing cult.”
BS and if Romney is the nominee I’ll be voting for him.
You can defend your Bishop Romney support any way you choose to, but you cannot change the fact that Mormonism is a sex and money based cult.
Bishop Romney is the Patriarch of perhaps the most powerful family in the entire cult leadership, he will be promoted in office within the religion, regardless of how this election turns out.
Romney is a religious leader, his single term in elective office before trying to purchase the Presidency was just for political reasons to expose him to the non-Mormon world. The Bishop is not a mere Mormon.
Just a sign of the angles they will use to attack Mitt if we're unfortunate enough to be saddled with him. The weirder the better.
Why is he focused on menstruating women?
Now waiting for some loon to want her monthly supplies paid for by the taxpayer! If contraceptives, why not this?!
Romney is a gun grabbing socialist. I don’t see how anyone who claims to be conservative can vote for him with good conscience.
If we are doomed to having a gun grabbing, global warming loving, abortion supporting, socialist used car salesman with no integrity in office....let it be a Democrat. I don’t want that blood on the hands of the GOP.
HEADLINE and Talking Point to be used by Conservative/Republicans:
Does Obama adviser, David Axelrod, have a problem with women?
Women menstrate. Why doe Obama adviser, David Axelrod, seem to have a problem with that?
Why did Obama adviser, David Axelrod, delete a Tweet critical of women having their period. If it wasn’t a cheap sexist attack on women, why did he delete the Tweet?
Make this Hitler lookalike answer the question. When he avoids it, or minimizes it, ask simply: “How long have you had a negative view of women menstrating?” Follow up: “Do you think women are unfit to serve in government because they menstrate?
When his head starts exploding ask him: “Why the original tweet?”, “Why did you delete it?”, “Were you just taking a cheapshot at Mormons?”
I didn’t know that Orthodox Jews had super secret ceremonies and rituals that only the “chosen” are allowed to participate in.
“Romney is a gun grabbing socialist. I dont see how anyone who claims to be conservative can vote for him with good conscience.”
Get real. I’ll vote for anyone or anything that runs against Obama. You are tripping if you think Romney is as bad as Obama.
“You can defend your Bishop Romney support any way you choose to, but you cannot change the fact that Mormonism is a sex and money based cult.”
So you will be voting for Oabam’s Marxist Muslim cult? Is that your ridiculous game?
if Romney is the nominee and there is no viable 3rd party write-in i may vote for Obama
i was born into the lds and have my own story about getting out of that cult, i will not set foot on this country with a mormon president over it...and if youre an ex-mormon, you know that means a shadow gov in SLC
plus, Zero has this country set to crash and burn, so put a waffle iron behind the wheel that steers according to polls?...obama destroys the country and we provide the fall guy with an 'R' next to his name so conservs take the rap...shrewd/s
the one positive note about four more years of Zero is that he owns the destruction of this country, and it's just possible that people will finally be outraged enough to have a real revolution...although that may be a dim hope...Gingrich is sitting watching the Delaware river and the Continental army is obsessed with "American Idol"
its all a replay of 2008...the liberal candidate the progressives prefer versus the rino candidate the progressives prefer
You are changing the subject to a matter that Axelrod never brought up. The original tweeted remark was that menstruating women were not permitted into certain LDS ceremonies. This is also true about Orthodox Jewish women during their periods. The Old Testament spelled out a number of restrictions about the ritual pollution this created and rabbinical law elaborated somewhat on it. It’s not really a big nuisance. Maybe the LDS women are glad to be excused from going to “weird ceremonies” for all we know.
Whoever bakes the waffle rules the world???
or, the man who waffles on every position gets the vote...fool some of the people all of the time etc
And totally avoided my question.
