Skip to comments.Axelrod: Romney does not have "big momentum"
Posted on 10/11/2012 5:34:35 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
President Obama's senior adviser, David Axelrod, denied on "CBS This Morning" that Mr. Obama is sliding in the polls and that Mitt Romney is gaining momentum.
"I don't think there's a slide in the polls; I think there was a bump after the debate," Axelrod said Thursday. "I don't think there's big momentum" for Romney, he said, allowing that the Republican challenger "collected a couple of points."
On the morning of the first and only vice presidential debate, Axelrod said Vice President Joe Biden's challenge "is going to be to pin Congressman Ryan down."
"The Romney campaign is running away from some of their positions like unwanted step children, but we're going to hold them to them," he said.
On the ongoing investigation into the administration's handling of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, Axelrod defended U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's initial comments that the attacks were "spontaneous." He said accusations that she was pressured to make the remarks is "absolute nonsense," adding that she repeated what she was told by the intelligence community.

Why does anyone listen to a man reared by Communists and steeped in Marxism all his life? Because he has so much in common with Obama.
Valerie Jarret also has this bizarre background. Nice work, Democrat presstitutes, hiding this bunch of Marxists from the voters.
lol. Axelod is such a jerk.
The Gibbs-Axelrod AstroTurf Factory, based in Chicago, is cranking out yet another phony narrative appearing to be from “the grass roots” - which is completely manufactured.
They need to keep playing that “it’s what the intellegence agencies told us at the time” card.
Soon some high Ranking Intellegence Officer is gonna break silence like those two Officers on the Ground In Libya did yesterday at the hearing.
There has got to be one or two Members close to retirement that respect their Country more than “The Taliban on the inside” Administration.
Order more Popcorn.
Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. - Mark Twain
Just Yesterday in the House Hearings Charlene Lamb the “person in Charge” told of being in contact REAL time
with those in the complex at the time of the attack AND
there is a security tape from the Embassy that the State Dept. FBI have.
So Putz WHO told you a LIE that it was a spontanious group action? Names?
Axelrod is the creepiest looking man ever. I wonder if his limosine is a white van with Tootsie Rolls in his backseat.
when you see the kitchen sink flying hrough the air, you know they’re getting desparate.
There are no troops in Baghdad! Exactly what came to mind.
Out of the mouth of a communist, who’s mother writes for a communist magazine. I believe everything he says....../sarc
dding that she repeated what she was told by the intelligence community....Whose?
Sadly, Axelrod and his boss are still stuck between Stage-1-Denial and Stage-2-Anger of the Kubler-Ross model of Grief. The stages, popularly known by the acronym DABDA, include:
1. Denial “I feel fine.”; “This can’t be happening
2. Anger “Why me? It’s not fair!”; “How can this happen to me?”; ‘”Who is to blame?”
3. Bargaining “I’ll do anything for a few more years.”;
4. Depression “I’m so sad, why bother with anything?”;
5. Acceptance “It’s going to be okay.”; “I can’t fight it, I may as well prepare for it.”
Serious question. Are there REALLY people out there that just aren’t sure who they are going to vote for?
It’s hard to imagine.
I would think by now its just a matter of who is willing to answer a poll, and if they do whether they feel comfortable telling the truth.
I tend to think that if it becomes “acceptable” to criticize Zero on late night TV people will feel more free to be honest about their intent to not vote for this clown.
“I don’t think there’s big momentum”
Then why the need to go on tv and talk about it?
Keep telling yourself that AHOLE.
I think Obama needs Axelrod for his VP. Joe is way to believable compared to Axelrod.
November 7: “Romney didn’t win the Presidency. He eeked out a minor victory and got a couple more Electoral Votes. We’ll still be in the White House January 21st.”
“Are there REALLY people out there that just arent sure who they are going to vote for?”
They’re apparently out there...with eyes wide shut while strolling through La-la Land.
Wonder if it was Axlerod’s idea to for Susan Rice to sell the Video story on the 16th?
David the Liar lying for Obama the Liar.
Romney is ahead by 1.5 percent in the RCP poll average, Romney is ahead in the liberal polls too.
Keep it up Axelrod, you’re a genius!
Uh. Axle-who? You’re history, pal. AND you’re ugly!
Doesn’t Axelrod look tired?
he is so haggard.
Axelrod is the creepiest looking man ever.
reminds me of granpa from the musters
I heard on FNC this morning he has been with Biden over seeing debate practice .
I am curious if David Axelrod was adorned with tire tracks when he gave this gem to the press.
IF that is the case you can expect the most vile, hate filled attack with nothing but innuendo and out right lies flowing from Plugs tonight.
Yup . But Ryan has facts on his side .
