Scheiffer asked Axelrod today about stopping the foreclosures until the current problems were solved:

The following is from

""I'm not sure about a national moratorium," Axelrod said on the CBS program "Face the Nation." He said valid foreclosures with proper paperwork should go forward, and that questionable foreclosures need to be addressed right away."

Why the heck didn't Axelrod say he sympathized with those having their homes foreclosed on? Why the heck didn't he say, "We will abide by the law but we know how difficult it is to lose your home and we will do everything we can to ensure that our citizens have their rights protected and their families made as whole as possible."

What he said -- and what the soundbite above indicates -- is an attitude of, "You're tied to the railroad tracks and the train is coming at you? Well, let's make sure the trestle remains up so you can be destroyed by the train!"

Axelrod should IMMEDIATELY visit some homeownders that have been unfairly treated and let his experiences be broadcast.

Also, anyone else notice Ed Gillespie on the same show using the Pain word, "Refudiate?" It was noticeable to me...

Yup -- "refudiate" used by Gillespie today.

How about facing the nation while living on the mean household income hoping you can make it to the Check Cashing Store to pay the light bill before running out of gas?

Axelrod comes across more as a technocrat than as someone with a great deal of empathy. In politics, image and presentation matter. The White House does not have great spokespeople right now other than the president himself.

"The market has become tilted..."

It seems like the most popular word in this election cycle is 'inequality,' but we need more than talk to narrow the great divide between the haves and have-nots in our nation.

According to a recent article by former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, the pro-corporate elite have rigged the system against us, and it's going to take the majority of us standing together to change the system.
