Axelrod to CNN: Rosen is 'your employee, not ours'
Politico ^ | 4/13/2012 | By JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 04/13/2012 4:44:30 AM PDT by tobyhill

Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod suggested Thursday that the Romney campaign jumped on Hilary Rosen's comments "like a raft in the deep blue sea" as they drown in "their own problems."

"It was an unfortunate comment," Axelrod said on CNN's "John King USA," following up on a Wednesday night tweet in which he described Rosen's remarks -- made on CNN -- as "inappropriate and offensive."

Axelrod reminded King that Rosen is "your employee, not ours."

Though some Romney supporters have identified Rosen as an Obama adviser, Axelrod noted that "she works for CNN. CNN, I think, wouldn't allow her to be an operative for our campaign or the DNC."

"like a raft in the deep blue sea"

Hmmm. Interesting analogy seeing as tomorrow is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Is he having nightmares about Obama's campaign perhaps?

“”Though some Romney supporters have identified Rosen as an Obama adviser, Axelrod noted that “she works for CNN. CNN, I think, wouldn’t allow her to be an operative for our campaign or the DNC.”””

Wouldn’t allow her to be an operative for the DNC? ALL of them work directly on behalf of the DNC.

Axelrod to CNN: Rosen is ‘your employee, not ours’

Right. The fact that this particularly vile “CNN employee” visited the White House 35 times, 3 1/2 times more than the CIA Director, would indicate that she has nothing to do with attacking the Romneys on behalf of the jug-eared moron.

Back up the bus! After bouncing Hilary Rosen beneath the Greyhound, President Obama and friends might have to throw it in reverse again over the person of key Dem coalitioin member Terry O’Neill. The NOW president suggested to Ed Schultz tonight that Ann Romney, along with Mitt, lacks “life experience” and “imagination” needed to understand most Americans.

For good measure, in the very same segment Dem congresswoman Maxine Waters called the Republican candidate for president Mitt “Rot-ney.” Classy bunch! View the video after the jump.

Watch O’Neill and Waters at work.

Michelle Obama’s $300K “Job” at Hospital Obama Got Earmarks for Eliminated

You might remember this one...

After Barack Obama became an Illinois state legislator, his wife moved up as well, scoring a job as ‘vice president of community relations’ at the University Of Chicago Hospital for a very generous salary of $121,910. When Obama became a senator in 2005, her ‘salary’ leapfrogged to $$316,962 for the same job...and one of Senator Obama’s first acts in office was to see to it that the hospital received over a million dollars of your tax dollars as an earmark.

Well, Michelle has moved on,and guess what...that vital job of hers,worth a salary of over $300 K has been quietly eliminated.

It’s the Chicago Way, cushy no-show jobs in exchange for political patronage...fist bump.

Of course, she had to work twice as hard to get half as far. She said so, so it must be true.

But I wonder, is this so very different that what Rod Blagojevich was popped for? Except that Blagojevich got caught and embarrassed everybody?

ALL of the employees of ABCNNBCBS work for the Obama regime.

ABCNNBCBS is an integral part of Gangster Govt Inc.

Just recall where the so-called “war on women” started: In January in NH, when George Snuffleupagus first popped the birth control questions at the debate.

This was Clinton’s old “war room” general, taking his orders from the Obama war room. Part of the Obama team at GGTV, Gangster Govt TV.

Like Damien Thorn’s minions in the Omen movies, she will be the first to self sacrifice to prove her loyalty. Others will follow in her footsteps to protect him.

And Politico reports Axelrod’s garbage like it’s the gospel truth. Do they think anyone is impressed by a mealy-mouthed political operative? The fact that CNN employs Rosen, a political hack who works for the Democrats, doesn’t matter.

Only a liberal airhead would find the fact that she draws a check from CNN is significant.

Hmmmm....

Rosen now works for SKDKnickerbocker, a Democratic communications firm that has done work for Obama’s campaign in the past. She has visited the White House multiple times, at one point attending a meeting on health-care messaging.

She has also given “occasional advice and media training” to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Wasn’t Axlerod one of the people who tried to protray Rush Limbaugh as “The Head Of The Republican Party”? If he wasn’t, I don’t recall him trying to stop his fellow Democrats from spread this lie.

Indeed, that’s pretty easily proveable.
Take any issue and what God values or says is the “good” view,
turn it 180 degrees, and you’ll have the leftist/democrat viewpoint on it.

Communism is simply building the kingdom of Satan on earth, and there isn’t a hairsbreadth difference between communist policy and democrat policy. But watch them howl if you point out this truth to them (ahem, Alan West).

Axelrod (aka Obama “butt boy”) would throw any of his own under da’ bus. I’ve never trusted this Hitler look-a-like clown. It is rewarding to see these people squirm when they take it over the edge. The Great OZ has spoken.

So why is a CNN employee given 36 visits to the White house and our CIA Head, and a General given less than a handful?

It is obvious to me and everyone else that CNN is taking its orders from Obama and promoting propaganda and not news.

How about that Ax?
