Video: David Axelrod makes the case for Mitt Romney

A great rapid response effort by the Mitt Romney team on this one … In an interview on Fox News Sunday this morning, David Axelrod said the 2012 election will come down to a choice: Do Americans want “an economy that produces a growing middle class and gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead?” Or do they want to continue down “the road we’re on”?

The Romney camp quickly clipped the interview and uploaded the relevant soundbite as a YouTube video — then tweeted it out.

Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul wrote quickly, “@davidaxelrod’s right: choice IS btwn growing economy vs continuing down down [sic] road we’re on.”

Romney’s digital director, Zac Moffatt, tweeted along the same lines. “VIDEO: Did @davidaxelrod endorsed [sic] @Mittromney this morning? Sounded like it.”

Moffatt added the hashtag #Axelrod4Romney, a clever little addition.

The idea was rapidly picked up by Congressman Darrell Issa, Erick Erickson and others.

Don’t you just know David Axelrod is kicking himself right now?
