Axelrod: Republicans Perpetrate 'Reign of Terror' on Capitol Hill

Republicans have engaged in a “reign of terror” on Capitol Hill, forcing their members into lockstep opposition to President Obama – even Republicans who “know better” – Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod said on Sunday.

Axelrod, speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press, made the comments in the context of how Obama would pursue his agenda in a second term. He said that after November, “good Republicans” would break ranks to work with the president on issues such as comprehensive immigration reform.

 

Students of history may associate the “Reign of Terror” with fates far worse than partisan politics. It often refers to the blood-soaked French Revolution, when thousands died at the blade of the guillotine.
