Axelrod: Santorum's stance on social issues 'are quite divisive'
The HIll ^ | 2/15/12 | Daniel Strauss

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.

Hey Axe!

What is it about Obama’s Pro-Abortion stance that is NOT “divisive”?

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.

“Divisive”????

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.

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?

Axelrod's greatest skill is in finding current or former whores of different sorts ~ who will work for very little.

Just no idea where he picked up that talent, but there it is.

Yesterday I heard a report on the payroll tax cut issue. NPR pointed out that John Boehner had changed his tune and decided to go along with Obama on the issue. Going along to get along, you know.

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.

The Democrats want working young women to vote, hence the inducement of free birth control and abortificiants.

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.

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.
