RCP Video ^ | 7-25-012 | Axelrod

Posted on 07/25/2012 9:22:29 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

....

David Axelrod: ... that's because the Romney campaign and their friends in the Super PAC world have just spent tens and tens of millions of dollars specifically on spots accusing Obama of running a negative campaign. So, I'm not surprised to see those numbers, generally.

[laughter]

Scarborough: So, it's not you're negative ads, it's their negative ads accusing you of being negative that is causing --

Axelrod: I think that had an impact on the numbers.

Obama can’t run anything BUT a negative campaign. He has done nothing positive to run on ... unless you consider championing homosexuals in the military, adding 4 trillion to the national debt or dismantling whole sectors of the American economy to be positives.

There is an incredible amount of projection and pot-kettle-black type allegations from Obama camp.

Alinsykite rule - accuse the other side of doing what you are doing. Communists were famous for this, accussing the west of supressing human rights or bad economy or whatever.

Axelrod and Obama do the same thing.

People Think Obama’s Running A Negative Campaign Because He IS Running A negative Campaign!!! Besides....HE can’t RUN ON HIS RECORD (OR lack OF ONE!!)because if people evaluate his record he’d get walked out of the White Hoouse before the election!

Isn’t the Obama campaign being negative by accusing Romney of being negative by accusing Obama of being negative? I thought so.

I think so...

Obama doesn’t run any negative ads.

They call them “contrast” ads.

Axelrod’s left root go deep. didnt know that, check out the comment at the bottom of the comments section here, he was a red diaper baby, who’d a thunk?!?:

David M. Axelrod was born February 22, 1955, to Myril Bennett Axelrod and Joseph Axelrod. Both were liberals, “your classic New York leftist Democrats,” says Axelrod. Politics was a family interest. Though Jewish, they seemed animated more by politics than synagogue. They loved politics. The father, a baseball aficionado and reportedly a decent player, became a psychologist. The mother had worked for an extremely political newspaper-the liberal New York daily, PM.

The story of PM is fascinating and revealing of the nuances and internecine warfare of the 1940s left. The founder of PM was Ralph McAllister Ingersoll. The newspaper ran from 1940 until 1948, funded by Chicago-based millionaire Marshall Field, pioneer of the department store chain. Field was a progressive dupe. The communist left could often count on Field as a sucker to fund their fronts and causes.

In encountering Canter and Rose, Ax had veered within the extreme orbit of the old Chicago CPUSA apparatus—indeed, the American Communist Party was founded in Chicago in September 1919. Of the two, Canter had the deep Party and even Soviet roots.
