Dems Ask White House to Stop Bashing D.C. So Much


In a closed-door meeting on Thursday, Nancy Pelosi's campaign chief and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn asked David Axelrod if the White House might be so kind as to stop talking so much trash about Washington, D.C. Their concern? Persistent White House attacks on D.C. culture reflect far worse on the Democrats, who are in charge, than Republicans. So they asked if the president could stop blaming "Washington" and "Congress" for everything and start blaming the GOP instead. According to Politico, David Axelrod basically told them to stop whining. [Politico]
