The White House has a message to the tens of thousands of protesters who railed against big government during a rally in Washington Saturday: You're wrong.
White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that the protesters, part of the "tea party" movement, do not represent the views of the broader public when it comes to health care reform.
"I don't think it's indicative of the nation's mood," Axelrod said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "You know, I don't think we ought to be distracted by that. My message to them is, they're wrong."

First, the D.C. Tea-Party Protesters were vastly under-counted by the media. "Tens of thousands" is what they reported at the networks. Yet estimates put the crowd at between 1.2 - 2 million people. Now this, the response to the Tea Party Protesters from the White House: SCREW ALL OF YOU.
