The Day David Axelrod Made the Case for Smaller Government

David Axelrod went on “Morning Joe” this morning and said this (bold mine):

“I was in the White House during the years, I think much of the period in question. I must say, I don’t think I could pick an IRS person out of a lineup,” Mr. Axelrod said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program.

“I never met any of them when I was there” in the West Wing, he added.

The government is “so vast,” Mr. Axelrod said, that it’s unreasonable to expect Mr. Obama — or any president — to keep tabs on every development in every department or agency.

“There’s so much underneath you that you can’t know,” Mr. Axelrod said.
