The president’s chief political advisor keeps giving us a foretaste of the 2012 campaign, attack Republicans. This time, David Axelrod is going after presumptive Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney:
“Having ducked and dodged and dithered throughout the debt-ceiling debate, and then dropping in on the final day and opposing the compromise, it’s pathetic that Mitt Romney was the first out of the gate with a press release blaming the president after S&P issued its report,” Mr. Axelrod, who is advising Mr. Obama’s campaign, said in an interview.
Ducked and dodged during the debt-ceiling debate? Hmmm. . . . sounds like the behavior of another man running for the White House in 2012. Only that guy is the only announced Democratic candidate. The good news is that Axelrod doesn’t think that kind of politics will play:
“I don’t think the American people are going to reward that kind of politics,” he said. “People are looking for constructive ideas about how we build a better future. The president is offering those.”
He is, Mr. Axelrod? Then, please do tell us what’s his plan for the FY 2012 budget and proposal to reform entitlements.
Oh, whoops, I read that wrong. You said “constructive ideas” not plans. Guess that’s how Obama governs.
