Videos: David Axelrod’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad morning

posted at 12:41 pm on July 25, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Some days, it doesn’t pay to get out of bed and have that first cup of Morning Joe.  David Axerlrod’s day got off to a rough start on the MSNBC show, which pleased the GOP enough to promote his appearance.  In one segment, Joe Scarborough challenges Axelrod to explain why twice as many voters think Barack Obama has conducted a negative campaign than Mitt Romney (with even more calling it a tie).  Axelrod’s answer?  Mitt Romney has been so relentlessly negative that people blame it on Obama.  No, seriously:

It didn’t get any easier for Axelrod when Scarborough asked Axelrod about leaks from the Obama administration.  Axelrod tries to offer “distractions,” as Scarborough called them when upbraiding Axelrod for trying to avoid the question.  Axelrod insists that Obama never “authorized” the leak of classified information, which is hardly a ringing denial about leaks from the White House:

The Hill notices a change in position in this dodge:

“I can tell you that the president of the United States did not leak classified information, as Mitt Romney suggested yesterday, and he didn’t authorize the leak of information, as Mitt Romney suggested yesterday,” Axelrod told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Axelrod’s statements are a shift from previous remarks where he denied that the leaks originated from anyone at the White House. “There were obvious leaks, but they weren’t from the White House,” he said in an interview in June.

Meanwhile, the Olympics ad that both Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski derided at the end of this interview came from Obama’s super-PAC, Priorities USA Action, called “Romney’s Gold.”  Axelrod denied any knowledge of it, and he’d be unable to do what Scarborough suggests — advise Bill Burton to pull it — because Team Obama can’t coordinate with the super-PACs.  It is pretty cheesy and amateurish, though:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkGSoZj5zwo&feature=player_embedded

Seriously?  They’ve been hammering the Swiss bank account and “outsourcing” issue for months.  Maybe Obama’s supporters think they’ll get more traction by beating this to death, but so far they’ve wasted tens of millions of dollars to end up with the status quo ante.  And really, not even that; the relentless personal attacks on Romney’s wealth has completely eroded Obama’s favorability and made him the ugly, angry candidate in the race.

Finally, back to Axelrod.  During his appearance on the show, Mark McKinnon asked Axelrod about the “you didn’t build that” attacks launched by Republicans, and Axelrod didn’t have much of an answer, according to NBC’s own write-up of the appearance:

Mark McKinnon on MSNBC’s Morning Joe asked Obama adviser David Axelrod, “We have a saying, ‘A hit dog barks, and it sounds like you’re barking, so does that mean you’re hit?” It’s a great way to put it, and it’s likely the case. Axelrod tried to downplay they campaigns’ hyper reaction. But it was a hyper reaction.

Looks like a bad morning for Axelrod … and another bad month for Team Obama.

Ax really should be appearing on Onion News to try to rehabilitate his cred. The only positive that might come from this appearance for him is he takes RINO Joe’s advice and gets Burton to pull the incredibly lame Olympic ad. I hope that doesn’t happen.

Fixed. I assume you’re referring to last night’s NBC “Poll” that sampled 11% more Democrats than Republicans.

A poster on another forum put it best:

Find me one poll that over-samples Republicans. You will find zippo. Now find me any pollster using Likely Voters. You will find one – Rasmussen.

Now go look for polls that over-sample Dems. Now you are in friendly Obama territory – you will find that, with the exception of Rasmussen, virtually all the polls are in that category.

And here’s more proof you’re losing.

If attacking the song “America the Beautiful”, Ann’s horse and the Olympics isn’t anti-American and nasty, then nothing is.

Doubt it would have helped. Because of the following things:

1. Inflexible RNC leadership. They gave McCain the nod because it was His Turn. Had they not done that and instead run someone like Giuliani, things might have been different.

2. Incurious Democrat Media. Had they vetted O’bama to the same extent that they vetted Sarah Palin, he would have never been the Democrat nominee to begin with.

3. October Surprise.

Status quo is good enough. Based on polling, he is still winning the needed swing state electorate votes.

Looks like a bad morning for Axelrod … and another bad month for Team Obama.

Yet, bad months do very little in regards to the polling numbers needed in swing state electorate votes.

I propose this appelation for Mr. Axelrod:

The Mortician

If that dude does not look like an undertaker, then Morticia Adams is a suntanned bathing beauty.

Almost four years of success, “our plan worked” as TFGRP put it and yet all they can do is hit Rombo for being at the Olympics.

Run on your record, Axel, go for it.

Let’s be honest – negative ads work.

Keep them coming, Obama. Clearly the actual polls show they are working.

Barry’s lead in large population states are

NY +25.5
NJ +15.3
CA +17.2
MA +19.2
IL +15
CT +12
MD +23

TX -7

Yet the national polls are tied. Might that mean Barry is behind in a lot more states than the national media and the Barry campaign want you to know?

The fight will be in the battleground states, and Romney’s drive probably will not start in earnest until after the GOP convention.

I have known people like Obama. A former brother-in-law comes to mind, actually, and when Obama began his campaign I saw the similarities at once. They aren’t subtle. I could see the nasty, vicious, basically mean and petty man behind the big smile. I remember thinking that this guy was a fraud and was probably going to take in a majority of voters.

And the rest is history. However, a fraud like that can’t keep up the mask forever. I saw it in my brother-in-law. When you saw through him he was furious. If he managed to deceive you, he was contemptuous of you. And that describes our President to a T.

Obama is not and never was a nice guy. He’s a con man with no ethics or standards of behavior. No con man cares about his victims, whether he is a used car salesman or a politician.

All he cares about is himself.

To expect so little of the first black pressident is the ultimate form of racism.
