Obama Advisor David Axelrod Calls Miss California a Dog … Since Obama has Same Position on Gay Marriage is he a Dog too?
Didn’t President Barack Obama make the following comment at Notre Dame University today regarding working together and not demonizing the other side? I guess his senior advisor did not get a copy of the speech. Because referring to another as a dog is praising them. Once again, it’s a just words.
The question, then _ the question then is how do we work through these conflicts? Is it possible for us to join hands in common effort? As citizens of a vibrant and varied democracy, how do we engage in vigorous debate? How does each of us remain firm in our principles, and fight for what we consider right, without, as Father John said, demonizing those with just as strongly held convictions on the other side?
David Axelrod, the senior advisor to President Barack Obama referred to Carrie Prejan, Miss California as a dog. Does that mean that Axelrod thinks Barack Obama is a dog as well? After all, Obama and Miss California have the same stance on gay marriage. However, to liberals, this isn’t mean or demeaning, it’s funny. Because they said so.
More tolerance from the Obama Administration. Senor Obama advisor went in NPR’s “Wait, Wait … don’t tell me,” and called Miss California, Carrie Prejan, a dog. It’s nice to know that so many in Barack’s posse got his memo on tolerance and changing the attitudes in Washington.
Finally, there was the conversation weaving between, of all things, Miss California U.S.A. Carrie Prejean, the same-sex marriage opponent who the panel had already mocked at length, and Bo, the Obama family’s Portuguese water dog.
When Mr. Axelrod was asked how involved he was in the selection of Bo, he jokingly answered that he “only got called in for the final three.”
But as Mr. Axelrod was trying to set the record straight – he actually was not consulted – Mr. Sagal asked about the two runner-ups.
“One was Miss California,” Mr. Axelrod cracked to the audience’s laughter.
As the Gateway Pundit points out, it is not the first time that the WH has bashed a young, attractive, conservative woman.
The American Thinker asks the question that hopefully many will be asking in 2010 and 2012:
How much longer will this country be able to endure the utter contempt these progressives have for traditional American values? When will conservatives begin to stand up for this young woman and the values she is defending?
