(Video) In which David Axelrod endorses Mitt Romney

Oh, my.

The Washington Post explains:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s camp seized on a Sunday morning interview in which Obama senior adviser David Axelrod appeared to suggest that the country’s economic recovery is not on the right path.

“The choice in this election is between 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,” Axelrod told host Chris Wallace during a contentious interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

First Hilary Rosen attacks Ann Romney, and now Obama’s chief political strategist accidentally endorses the other guy. Who needs Biden for gaffes when you’ve got these clowns?

The video, by the way, is courtesy of the Romney campaign’s communications shop; you can bet this will be in a commercial coming your way. Since it became all but official that Romney’s the nominee, his campaign has shown a refreshing willingness to hit back hard and fast and to take the battle to the foe, something sorely lacking in the McCain campaign in 2008.

Keep it up, guys.

    At least when Biden makes a gaffe, he’s telling the truth or giving his personal take on an issue. Axelrod? Good God, what an idiot.

    And as for Team Romney hitting back hard, remember how Obama behaves under pressure – whines, attempts distraction, asks for waffles, etc. If they effectively hit back hard, then Obama and his people will crumble.

  2. Drew the Infidel says:

    Having never been accused of brilliance, one would hope if Axelrod is going to endorse Romney he would at least not talk like a child while doing so by using the the grammatically incorrect phrase “a fewer and fewer number”. This is as idiotic as the checkout counters that say “10 items or less” when fewer is the word they are looking for. But thanks for the shout out anyway.

  3. Ken66 says:

    I disagree with Biden, must be 90% of the time at least. But he means what he says and says what he means and I respect that about him. Axelrod and Obama, on the other hand are, as they say in my old Kentucky home, “crooked as a dog’s hind leg.”

  4. Carlos says:

    Biden honest? Let’s start with the basics, Ken66: #1, Biden is a politician, therefore is at least 99% likely to be a liar.

    #2, Biden is a liberal, which makes him 100% likely to be a liar.

    #3, Biden is a Democrat, therefore is a liar by definition.

    He may mean what he says and says what he means, but what he says is all lies to begin with and he knows it. Most of his “gaffes” occur when his addled brain can’t keep up with a tongue that has never known a day off.
