Obama adviser Axelrod: Romney not 'qualified to call himself a job-creator
By Kevin Bogardus - 06/03/12 11:15 AM ET
David Axelrod, a senior adviser to President Obamas reelection campaign, said Sunday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney does not have a record of a job-creator.
Speaking on CBSs Face the Nation, Axelrod said the former Massachusetts governor shouldnt be considered an expert on the economy. Romneys record in government and in the private sector was not about creating jobs, according to the Obama adviser.
No ones arguing whether Mitt Romneys qualified to be president. What were arguing is whether hes qualified to call himself a job-creator, Axelrod said. Thats not what he did in business. Thats not the purpose of his business. And thats not certainly what he did in Massachusetts, where they had one of the worst economic records in the country.
The economy is a central focus of the presidential race. Fridays jobs report where employers only added 69,000 jobs and the unemployment climbed to 8.2 percent could hurt President Obamas reelection chances if the labor market continues to struggle.
Axelrod dismissed suggestions that the Obama campaign would dial back its attacks on Romneys time at private-equity firm Bain Capital. The Obama adviser talked about one Obama campaign commercial that focused on Bains involvement with GST Steel, a company which went bankrupt.
No. First of all, Its part of a piece. Is Mitt Romneys background, are his ideas the ones that could move our economy forward? Axelrod said. Thats not an economic strategy thats going to rebuild the middle class in this country, thats going to grow our economy in the long run, and thats the point were making.

Axe, muh bro, you are going to be beaten like a rented car come November!
The sad thing is Axelrod takes himself seriously, like Pelosi and Reid. Obama is the least qualified to be president of any who have served that office.
Yeah, they are really pushing that “not qualified” all over the place...while touting the imposter’s “experience” because he has “unlawfully occupied” the White House these last few years, hence obama is now qualified? These libs are nuts. It seems like a long time between now and November...and anything can happen, which means it probably will.
What in the world are Hussein and Axelrod qualified for? They have never run anything but their mouth.
Axelrod is smooth and corrupt, a perfect liar. He doesn’t care how obvious the lie is, and that is a prerequisite for servicing Obama. Obama’s investment ventures in high risk, low return, green scams have been disastrous. He would never make it in the world of venture capitalism where the investors have a say over how their money is being used. Even a water carrier like Axelrod knows that.
Are you kidding? Obama has created countless new jobs in the booming collection agency and repo man industries.
