Skip to comments.Axelrod: Santorum's stance on social issues 'are quite divisive'
Posted on 02/15/2012 8:04:05 AM PST by Nachum
Top Obama political strategist David Axelrod took aim at surging GOP hopeful Rick Santorum Wednesday, painting him as a fringe candidate unlikely to appeal to voters after closer inspection. Speaking on CBS This Morning on Wednesday, Axelrod said the former Pennsylvania senator's economic policies were unlikely to win over voters. "I think when people really examine his economic policies, I don't think the average working person in this economy is going to look at his economic policies and say 'yeah, that's the ticket for me. That offers great hope for me.'" Axelrod said.

****ing nazi bastard.
What is it about Obama’s Pro-Abortion stance that is NOT “divisive”?
And killing live born babies isn’t..?
So then is he saying that Obama’s and liberals stands on the social issues and other are NOT divisive or controversial?
If you are going to criticize the opposition as “divisive”, then you are implying that your liberal positions are mainstream and non-controversial.
Or am I missing something?
Maybe what I’m missing is that you are not supposed to question Team Obama about anything.
Coming from the likes of Axelrod, that is really rich....unfortunately, the stupes who support Obama (eg, the 47%) will buy this hook, line, and sinker.
I hope this endorsement helps.
I guess it is. He doesnt approve of aborting 8 month old babies like mr obama
Interesting that Axe comments reflect “the working” middle-class.
Doesn’t the White Hut care about the unemployed? Is he implying that they aren’t counting on them to vote?
Just no idea where he picked up that talent, but there it is.
And Obama’s are NOT!?!
F U D A!!!!
I paraphrase the NPR panel -- people who likely seek more political unity in this country:
"Ha! You lost!!"
"Whoop! Obama wins another one!"
"Boy, those Republicans sure take a long time to decide to do the right thing, huh?"
"These people just care about the rich, but they lost this round!"
But Axelrod is worried about Santorum being divisive ...
Ahhhh, but Mr. Axlerod, Senator Santorum would protect our freedoms (the free exercise of religion comes to mind) unlike the current resident of the White House. This is a very unifying issue among a majority of Americans.
Also, Mr. Axlerod, I sincerely doubt that there will ever be a resident of the White House as DIVISIVE as Mr. Obama, particularly when it has to do with race, religion, and class warfare.
Given a choice, Obama would kill Axlerod’s daughter to prevent wasting resources on a girl who is never likely to become a producer.
These people disgust me.
Wow. Coming from an advisor to the most divisive President in US history, his criticism of Santorum is laughable.
Axelrod is an evil man.
They don't want unemployed young men to vote, hence their total elimination from Democrat rhetoric.
Unemployed young men are available to the Republicans for very little investment. Just don't send Romney after them ~ he's the guy into consolidation, greater efficiency, and structural layoffs.
They know all about that.
One hell of an endorsement.
Santorum offers a clear difference between the current communist in the white hut and a Patriotic, Constitution Supporting, Honest, American Leader.
Romney, not so much.
yes he is and so what?
Oh yeah Axelrod — and your boss can issue a fatwa against one of the largest Christian churches in the country, but he’s not divisive at all. Not at all. Unbelievable.
