…No comment. Via Politico:

NBC News and MSNBC’s new contributors — and former advisers to President Barack Obama — Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod both say they’re not going to be acting as partisan cheerleaders while serving as political analysts. …

“I don’t see it either as being a cheerleader for the president or as a spokesman for the administration’s point of view,” [Gibbs] said. …

“I’m proud of my work for and with the president,” [Axelrod] told Kurtz. “But in this role, I will offer observations, based on my experience over 35 years in journalism and politics, and will call them as I see them.”
