    This is horrible, Is the truth going to come out? or is it just another news network that will sweep the truth under the rug. "Cheerleaders"

    Perfect illustration of just how hypocritical and scummy Axelrod was during the campaign: He brayed incessantly about Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a slut. Sure, he was right to do so; but then, he refused to criticize the $1 million campaign contribution from that hate-filled sexist pig Bill Maher. Axelrod also echoed the guilty-until-proven-innocent stunt that Harry Reid pulled on the Senate floor regarding Mitt Romney's taxes. Obama ran a thoroughly scummy campaign. I can't wait until November 2016 when Marco Rubio will be elected president.
