Axelrod Honest While Obama Deceives

Of all the president's lies, it's the tiny ones that piss me off the most. I see them as being the most malicious, as they are less easily noticed by average folks while having a big impact on distorting the perceptions of a story. In this little lie, the president pretends Hilary Rosen is not a big, well known beltway Democrat.

Ya know, I think this was an ill-advised statement by somebody on television...

What's interesting is that even Obama political boss David Axelrod sees escape from association with Hilary impossible - one of the rare times you'll find him being honest. How come he didn't tell Barack - 'on this one you'd better be honest'?

We have an obligation in public life when someone, even friends, say things that are inappropriate to say so... in fact in certain ways when your friends say it there's more of an obligation...
