Republicans of good will be not afraid, your liberation is at hand!
In an interview with C-SPAN, Axelrod said there are plenty of Republicans who would like to work with Obama but have been unable to because of a “kind of reign of terror” in which any act of cooperation with the president was seen as a betrayal.
Yet Axelrod insisted there are Republicans “of good will” would would like to work with Obama.
“My belief is that when the president wins in November, we’re going to liberate these Republicans of good will,” Axelrod said.
He added that those Republicans will “blink into the light of a new day and they’re going to turn to the Grover Norquists of the world, frankly as Jeb Bush has recently, and say, ‘You know we did it your way, and frankly that was a failure for the country, and also for the Republican Party, and now we’re going to work together.’”
As Doug Powers writes: ““Republicans of good will” by Axelrod’s definition don’t need Obama to be re-elected in order to be liberated — they’re either doing it themselves or fed up voters are doing it for them.” But he has links.
As a kicker…
