Axelrod: I'll shave my mustache if Obama loses Minnesota
thehill.com ^ | 10/31/12 | Jonathan Easely

Posted on 10/31/2012 8:01:08 AM PDT by Justaham

President Obama’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod said Wednesday he’d shave his signature mustache if Obama loses Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania to Mitt Romney.

“I will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states,” Axelrod declared on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe."

Provoked by recent polls, the campaigns have been in a turf war over traditionally blue states.

The Romney campaign says it sees an opening to steal some electoral votes that many believe Obama should’ve locked down by now. The Obama campaign says this is merely posturing by the Romney campaign, and a sign of desperation because Romney needs to expand his map for an Electoral College victory.

“They’re going to states that they’re simply not going to win in hopes that they can make something happen to compensate for the fact that we’re even or ahead in all of these battleground states,” Axelrod continued. “There’s not one of these battleground states that they can say with absolute confidence that they’re going to win.”

Recent polls have shown Romney within striking distance in Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania, although the polling averages still favor Obama. Many analysts believe Romney is a long shot to overtake the president in any of the three because the states have leaned Democratic in recent elections.

The clean-shaven look will be better in his job search after November. Looking like Adolf just doesn’t look good to the owners of used car lots who want to hire a new sleazeball salesman.

He was planning to shave anyway, because he doesnt want anyone to recognize him as a guy who worked for Obama. He’ll have to go work in the real world now.

The EPA may have to shut that down. That mustache is bound to be a habitat for an endangered species or two.

The mere fact that Axelrod is even talking about Minnesota (a state which hasn’t voted for a Republican president in forty years) this late in the game shows that Obama is in serious trouble.

The fact the Axelrod is making this stand about MINNESOTA, and not Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, or Ohio tells us a lot.

Trademark mustache? Groucho Marx had a trademark mustache; so did Jerry Colonna and Tom Selleck.

David Axelrod has a child molester in a white van mustache.

There, I said it.

That is one creepy looking man.

Seeing that Obama has locked up the Dictator Vote around the world, after the Romney inauguration Congress should resurrect the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC)and begin the weeding out of these communists from our government institutions.

A bit of facial hair is a small thing to lose over a campaign.

I would prefer instead that he move to Saudi Arabia if O loses.

After four years of lying for Obama, Axelrods self imposed punishment is shaving his mustache? He is only doing so because he does not want to be recognized after the election. I hope he is held accountable for all the slander and lies against Mitt and others that have different opinions....
I hope never to have to look at his ugly mug post January 2013!!!!

His “trademark mustache” reminds me of nothing else but Hitler. Axelrod, you Nazi b*st*rd.
And, yes, “Nazi” fits when it comes to these people.
