Election 2012: Your stories
Did David Axelrod Actually Say This?
They say that turnabout is fair play. If that is so, then shouldn't Republicans be able to pounce on a statement made by President Barack Obama's chief re-election official and not delve into what he actually meant when he spoke on Fox News Sunday?
What David Axelrod, the Team Obama top-placed official, said:
“The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead, and an economy that continues down the road we are on, where a fewer and fewer number of people do very well, and everybody else is running faster and faster just to keep pace.”
Sounds like Axelrod is saying Americans have a better choice in presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney than staying the course with Obama.
Naturally the Romney campaign wasted no time in uploading the sound byte to YouTube for the whole world to hear.
From the Cornfield, this has not been a great week for Democrats and engaging the brain before the gums went to flapping.
