Axelrod: 'Reign of Terror' From Far Right

Well, how's that for bipartisan rhetoric? Reports Reuters:
 

"Republicans in the U.S. Congress are under a "reign of terror" imposed by the party's conservative wing that also has pushed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to the right, President Barack Obama's senior campaign strategist said on Sunday.

David Axelrod, in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" program, cited the Obama administration's plans for immigration reform as an example of Republican intransigence in Congress.

The political process in Washington should not be "monolithic opposition to everything the chief executive wants to do as a political strategy," Axelrod said, adding that an "implacable group of Republicans" had blocked any possibility of immigration reform.

"I think there are a lot of Republicans in Congress who want to cooperate ... but they're in the thralls of this reign of terror from the far right that has dragged the party to the right," he said.

Funny, when I think reign of terror in Congress, I think about a Democrat-controlled legislature that strong-armed through a health care monstrosity yet couldn't get organized enough to produce a simple budget, with a president whose message was basically "I won" to the minority party.

Actually, if you ask me, there's an extremism on the Left that shows Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi unable to compromise when she was in charge.
