Axelrod's Disturbing Revelation

George Joyce
When asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether Barack Obama had ordered the resignation of green czar Van Jones, White House senior advisor David Axelrod retorted:

"Absolutely not -- this was Van Jones' own decision.”

Axelrod’s answer is telling.  His defiant tone suggests that the thought of firing Jones had never been entertained by President Obama, thus protecting Obama’s image among the radical left.  On the other hand, Axelrod’s response might be the product of a special arrangement with Jones – a man who probably knows more than we do about some of Obama’s deepest convictions.

Most disturbing however is what seems to be Axelrod’s indignation at the mere suggestion that Obama would ever decide to fire Jones.  

Doesn’t this say something about our president?
