Axelrod entangles White House in Delphi scandal
The Daily Caller ^ | 10-23-2012 | Neil Munro

Team Obama’s chief strategist stammered out a contradictory and evasive defense of the White House’s role in the Delphi bankruptcy settlement, which has left up to 20,000 older workers in Ohio with reduced or minimal pensions.

The 2009 bankruptcy of the auto-parts maker “was not the decision of the president,” David Axelrod first told reporters during an Oct. 23 midday press conference, after he was asked about a Delphi-related rally that Gov. Mitt Romney held in Ohio.

"But Axelrod next seemed to admit that President Barack Obama played a role in the lopsided deal, which drained the retirement accounts of non-union workers while boosting the pension of workers in unions allied to the Democratic Party".

Axelrod: “Obviously we’re concerned about the workers there, but the policy that the president undertook was one that was designed to save the larger, you know, universe of people relying on the auto industry,” he claimed.

These men will turn on each other on the drop of a dime. It’s mob rules with them. It will be very interesting to see the history unfold a within a year of a Romney admin. We should begin to get stories of “where are they now”. Headlines: Axlerod 911 call “There’s a horses head in my Bed!”

Finally!. I know this strategy stuff is up to Romney and his campaign, but watching Romney take shots to the chin for months over the Detroit bankruptcy op-ed has been really frustrating.

It wasn't until the second debate that Romney point out that under Obama's bailout these companies went bankrupt anyway. What Romney didn't explain right then and there what the bailout was all about. The auto bailout was all about flipping the pecking order on assets upside down. It was all about taking care of the UAW. It was all about screwing over non-union employees like these people at Delphi.

If played correctly, this could be a long enough lasting political argument to carry through to the election. Obama is out to help his friends and contributors at the expense of hard working Americans. Romney wants everybody working because that makes a stronger America.
