Axelrod: Government is 'So Vast' Obama Can't Know About All the Bad Things It's Doing

Or -- alternatively -- Barack Obama is too small for the job?

The government is simply too big for President Obama to keep track of all the wrongdoing taking place on his watch, his former senior adviser, David Axelrod, told MSNBC. “Part of being president is there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast,” he explained.

If government is now so vast that even a lightworker and messianic figure like Barack Obama can't run it, what say we shrink it down to size? We probably can't make it small enough for someone with Obama's unique lack of executive experience to deal with, but we can shrink it down so that a competent governor could deal with it.

How about it, Dave?
