AXELROD CALLS ROMNEY BACKERS 'CONTRACT KILLERS'
FoxNation.com ^ | May 7 | Staff

Posted on 05/08/2012 6:35:08 AM PDT by JesseWatters

On the same day the Obama campaign revealed the first in a series of political ads devoid of political attacks, Senior Campaign Advisor David Axelrod derided several Romney backers as "contract killers." In a conference call with reporters Monday, Axelrod said the positive spin on the new ads, focusing on Obama's accomplishments rather than reverting to political attacks, doesn't preclude the campaign from reacting when it sees fit. "We're also going to be prepared, and I want to be clear, to respond to the attacks that we expect to continue from-- not just from the Romney campaign but from the Karl and Koch brothers contract killers over there in SuperPAC land, who are going to continue to pound away on behalf of Governor Romney," Axelrod said.

Just more of the tone of “civility” that Obama espouses.

Axelrod is becoming hysterical. This should be good.

Why would you need to put a positive spin on your accomplishments?

rather than reverting to political attacks, doesn't preclude the campaign from reacting when it sees fit.

Even if it has to react pre-emptively.

AXELROD CALLS ROMNEY BACKERS ‘CONTRACT KILLERS’

And it’s only May. Herein lies the reason that Romney will win in a landslide... the ignorant a$$ clown socialist and his perverted, vile minions will be so over the top with their daily hate-filled rhetoric toward this less than perfect presidential alternative, that everyone will be put off by the POS. It seems that every time I turn on the set I see a spittle-laced diatribe from some libtard socialist lamenting the “danger” of ridding the country of the unmitigated disaster that is Obama.

"focusing on Obama's accomplishments"

Must be some really, really short ads.

I smell a little projection going on here. Liberals always accuse Conservatives of engaging in the very activities they themselves engage in.

Or is that an Occupier I smell?

They’re getting more and more desparate.

It’s actually quite enjoyable.

Axelrod and Obama are similar in that they are used to getting their own way and lash out and react badly when they don't. They are finding that 2012 will not be a repeat of the 2008 love affair.

We cannot ignore the David Axelrod factor. Axelrod is Obama’s chief campaign strategist, who specializes in sloganeering. Axelrod coined the “hope and change” slogan in 2008, and surely devised “Forward!” in 2012.

Well, Axelrod is likewise a product of this Chicago world, including the communist influences. Axelrod was mentored by David Canter. David and his father, Harry, were part of Chicago’s communist orbit. Harry had been secretary of Boston’s Communist Party, and both father and son spent the 1930s in Moscow, where Harry he worked for the Soviet government as a translator of Lenin’s writings. Harry was among the small group that purchased the Chicago Star from Frank Marshall Davis in September 1948. Harry was familiar to Star readers. Among other instances, he appeared in the April 28, 1947 edition, wishing “May Day Greetings” to fellow comrades. Davis would have joined Harry at that May Day parade in Chicago. Davis editorialized in support of the 1947 May Day.

Axe is safe.
He’s so full of hype that he’s an asset for conservatives.

Dang, it's enough to make one question whether The Boys From Brazil was entirely fictional.

Axelrod needs to start looking for a new job before the November landslide.

Who was it who killed contracts retroactively and ignored laws, causing everybody to be reluctant to enter into agreements because big govt. just might step in and say that the contract doesn’t count? Literally, it is they who are “contract killers” in a different sense of the word.
