The GOP's 'reign of terror'?

News

Senior Obama advisor David Axelrod is opening up about how the president plans to pull of a successful reelection bid and it looks like the Democrat's plan is to demonize the GOP and hope voters think the president is the lesser of two evils.

Check out what Axelrod had to say in this interview with the National Journal:

NJ President Obama has been vague about what he would accomplish in his second term.

AXELROD The president believes you build a strong, sustainable economy by building a strong, viable growing middle class. You have to continue to upgrade our educational system and improve access to higher education and technical training. We have to invest in research and development and the kinds of things that will create high-end, advanced manufacturing jobs. We have to continue to open up markets all over the world for American products. We need to continue with an all-of-the-above energy policy and really push for the development of all sources of energy. Immigration reform is an unfinished piece of business. But the principal thing we need to be pursuing is a very aggressive strategy of putting people back to work.

NJ How would the president accomplish those goals with a Republican-controlled House and possibly Senate?

AXELROD They have had a policy of obstruction from the day the president arrived. When the president is reelected, it will be a rejection of the politics of obstruction. There’s this reign of terror going on in the Republican Party.

Here is yet another example of rhetoric Obama's campaign hopes the public will digest without question: "[The GOP] have had a policy of obstruction from the day the president arrived."  Forget the fact that Obama arrived in Washington with clear majorities in both the House and Senate.  Also pay no mind to the fact that since 2010, the GOP-controlled House has passed numerous jobs bills that the Democrat-controlled Senate has opted to ignore.  Repeat a falsehood enough and people will start to believe it...

PS -- "Reign of terror"?  Seriously?  Will this year's Republican National Convention include a guillotine session?  Do GOP members of Congress decorate their offices with heads on pikes?
