The Washington Post explains:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s camp seized on a Sunday morning interview in which Obama senior adviser David Axelrod appeared to suggest that the country’s economic recovery is not on the right path.
“The choice in this election is between economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead, and an economy that continues down the road we are on, where a fewer and fewer number of people do very well, and everybody else is running faster and faster just to keep pace,” Axelrod told host Chris Wallace during a contentious interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
First Hilary Rosen attacks Ann Romney, and now Obama’s chief political strategist accidentally endorses the other guy. Who needs Biden for gaffes when you’ve got these clowns?
The video, by the way, is courtesy of the Romney campaign’s communications shop; you can bet this will be in a commercial coming your way. Since it became all but official that Romney’s the nominee, his campaign has shown a refreshing willingness to hit back hard and fast and to take the battle to the foe, something sorely lacking in the McCain campaign in 2008.
