Obama Adviser David Axelrod on “Face the Nation” Tries to Explain Obama’s Debate Loss to Mitt Romney – Video 10/7/12
Here is video of Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod doing his best to rehabilitate Barack Obama from his disastrous debate performance against Mitt Romney. Axelrod essentially blamed the loss on pure as the driven-snow Obama being shocked at a “Gantry-esque” performance by Mitt Romney. You would think Barack Obama had never heard of what a debate is, to listen to Axelrod. Mitt Romney did tell the truth about his tax proposal, and Barack Obama engaged in “fiction” by the way he tried, and failed, to characterize it.
Once again, no one hammered Axelrod with the obvious question when he acted concerned about what Mitt Romney’s tax proposal will do to “explode” the debt – Why should anyone take Barack Obama seriously on the deficit and debt? He has more than doubled the annual budget deficit AND has added nearly $6 Trillion to the national debt. He deserves to be literally laughed at when he tries to say anything about deficit and debt! Something tells me that when Barack Obama tries this “Gantry-esque” concern routine about the debt in one of the remaining two debates, Mitt Romney will be ready to pounce.
