A senior political adviser to President Barack Obama is likening Mitt Romneys selection of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate to John McCains choice of Sarah Palin.
David Axelrod tells CBS This Morning he recalls that kind of excitement four years ago when McCain presented Palin to the country as his choice for vice president. Axelrod says in Mondays interview he thinks the selection of Ryan, who is popular with tea party figures as Palin was is not going to be a plus for Mr. Romney.(continued)

Plus, there was no “Tea Party” in 2008, genius, so how was she “popular” with a non-existent group in 2008? And this guy runs a national campaign? Wow!
David AxelFRAUD looks like Adolf Hitler, in fact the resemblance is downright scary..Commies are scared that they are going down in November, their chance to turn America into Commieland is going go down in flames(hopefully)
I would LOVE to play poker with Axelrod.
I know his job is to spin and obfuscate, so there is no surprise here. Do independent thinkers not see that virtually every election since 2009 is going the way the Tea Party wants it to go? This movement is a very mainstream movement. Even many who do not consider themselves ‘Tea Party’ are voting for the same message.
Axelrod is scared. haha, can’t stand the evil little guy and his lies.
Palin's fresh "common-sense" approach caused enthusiasm, and Ryan's unique ability to articulate America's founding ideas will bring real "change" to the understanding of voters. Their combined appeal will help to engender a new sense of individual worth and the "People-over-government" idea which gave birth to America.
Instead of falling into the so-called "progressive" tactic of dividing people by ethnic background, level of income, etc., Paul Ryan enables Romney's campaign to articulate the singularly American idea that Creator-endowed life, rights and liberties belong to every individual, and that those ideas are, therefore, unalienable and are not grants from government, nor are they available for proscription by government.
That idea, if articulated clearly, will be understood by each citizen who catches the Founders' meaning, to be applicable to that citizen, and to work to that citizen's benefit to provide opportunity and freedom.
For decades, the "progressive movement" has sought to eradicate that idea from textbooks and public discourse, because the power of that idea ennobles, dignifies, and causes individuals to resist the appeal of those who wish to enslave them.
Another of the FOREIGNERS commie advisers trying to spin a lie. It’s unbelievable how far the MSM and DEMOCRAT PARTY have fallen into the sewer right down where the RATS like DAVID reside. David, you better sign up for the fall teaching schedule because your out of a job come November.
The author MIGHT have a point, if Obama had numbers as high as he had in 2008. Closer in, I believe his poll numbers will collapse. Obama will either have to declare martial law, or he will be tossed out of the White House.
Anyone have a picture of AxelHitler that I can put on my dartboard?
I always look to David Axelrod for advice on pubbie campaigns. He’ll never steer us wrong.
