Anatomy of a White House win: how Obama outmaneuvered Romney By JEFF MASON, Reuters November 8, 2012 9:31am 162 78 1 290 CHICAGO - On the day after the 2010 midterm election that swept Republicans into control of the House of Representatives and decreased Democrats' majority in the Senate, senior White House adviser David Axelrod had a message for President Barack Obama. "I think they just planted the seeds of your re-election," he told his boss. "The most strident voices had seized control of the Republican Party and you knew that the nominee who would emerge either would come from that Tea Party base or would have to yield to it in order to be the nominee," Axelrod told Reuters. That nominee ended up being former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and Obama's campaign went on to exploit his ties to the conservative wing of his party and outmaneuver him to victory in the Nov. 6 general election. Axelrod, who left the White House to oversee strategy for the president's 2012 campaign, and fellow Democr ...
As I and my family cast our votes today in early balloting, I think I can now opine as to what I perceive is our national problem, vis-a-vis the general election. I make no bones about being Republican. At one point in my youth, I thought I was a Democrat, but that was then and this is now. To date, the Democratic Party has gone out of its way to villify the Republican Party and liars, misinformants and generally willing to make a political issue of anything that happens in the world today. What I see as a counter arguement is Stephanie Cutter who did blatantly lie about the worker whose wife died of cancer by saying she'd never heard of him before while she'd been on a recorded conference call with him weeks before. David Axelrod (who in my opinion has yet to find a verb that works for him) is a miscreant scallywag - a phrase which over 100 years ago would be tantamount to cussing him in public. I might have just said something rude about his mother. As for the Democratic Party making Nazi Party r ...
To all my liberal friends and Obama supporters who believe in Obama. Answer me one question. The Democrats have tried to portray Romney and the Republican Party as greedy for not wanting to share more of their money with the needy. Why do you feel it is greedy to want to keep your money you earned, but its not greedy to want to take more of someone elses money? Seems to be the great divide between liberals and conservatives. We Conservatives feel that Government takes enough of our money already to share with the needy, and liberals want more of our money to share with the needy. I personally feel Democrats are greedy to want more money from taxpayers to give to the needy. Love to hear some real responses, not talking points from David Axelrod.
Ssome of us are lucky.we have never been without healthcare coverage. Either we or our spouse was fortunate to have coverage through our jobs. Many people can't get coverage due to pre-existing health conditions. I have known a few: they are professional, hardworking people caught up in the financial collapse. It ain't pretty. This is from David Axelrod: Judging from the number of times they've said it this week, you would think repealing Obamacare on Day One is the most urgent goal of the Republican Party and number one reason to elect Mitt Romney. I'd like to know what's noble about making it harder for people to get health care. President Obama refused to give up on this legislation because he knew it was about real people -- people like his own mother who, in her final days, battled cancer and mounting bills, or my daughter Lauren, whose intractable epilepsy, at just seven months old, nearly bankrupted our family and burdened her with a pre-existing condition that threatened her future coverage. ...
via Re-Elect President Obama "The changes that the President made in the Affordable Care Act, taking subsidies away from insurance companies within the Medicare system, helped us lengthen the life, the viability, financial viability, of Medicare by almost a decade. [Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan] would repeal that and Medicare would be bankrupt by 2016. So right away, there are concerns for seniors about what they would do. But in the long-term, what they would do is turn Medicare into a voucher program. They would cap that voucher so that over time, more and more of the burden would be shifted to seniors who would be left to contend on the private insurance market or choose a very weakened Medicare alternative. It is not a plan to strengthen Medicare. It's a death spiral for Medicare. And let's be honest - the Republican Party has never been supportive of Medicare. And Congressman Ryan philosophically doesn't really believe in Medicare. And Governor Romney has essentially a version of the same plan. So if Me ...

Photograph: AP Photo/Alex Brandon So why does the US economy stink? Why has job creation in America slowed to a crawl? Why, after several months of economic hope, are things suddenly turning sour? The culprits might seem obvious – uncertainty in Europe, an uneven economic recovery, fiscal and monetary policymakers immobilized and incapable of acting. But increasingly, Democrats are making the argument that the real culprit for the country's economic woes lies in a more discrete location: with the Republican Party. In recent days, Democrats have started coming out and saying publicly what many have been mumbling privately for years – Republicans are so intent on defeating President Obama for re-election that they are purposely sabotaging the country's economic recovery. These charges are now being le ...
Axelrod, GOP leaders spar over Ryan on Sunday morning talk shows By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 3 hrs ago Ryan and Romney on the campaign plane en route to Charlotte (Justin Sullivan/Getty) Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate dominated the discussion on Sunday morning's political talk shows. And the reaction to the choice of Ryan, a Tea Party favorite, fell along party lines. David Axelrod, senior adviser to the Obama campaign, appeared on ABC, NBC and CNN to curb the GOP enthusiasm. "It is a pick that is meant to thrill the most strident voices in the Republican Party," Axelrod told Stephanopoulos. "But it's one that should trouble everybody else, the middle class, seniors, students, because of Ryan's record. I mean, he is a right-wing ideologue, the intellectual energy behind the Republican caucus there in Congress. He constructed a budget that, like Romney, would lavish trillions of dollars of tax cuts, most of them on the wealthy, would raise ...
"As we’ve said from the beginning, Gov. Romney’s problem is that his approach on health care was very much the model for the Affordable Care Act. His case for the mandate was as cogent as any. His explanation then of the penalty on “free riders,” who game the system and let taxpayers and the insured pick up their freight, was right on target. So now, as the Republican Party and their SuperPacs try to depict this narrow, freeloader penalty, that would touch less than 1 percent of Americans, as a broad tax on the middle class, they’re sliming their own nominee, as well." - David Axelrod
Even among the liberal dems, this stinks. Had he simply cooperated two years ago instead of spending his preciously short time in office to punish the republican party this would have never happened. I am sorry but, this screams cover up ! It makes you wonder if David Axelrod and reelection team made wrong choices or perhaps someone else. Will we ever know ?
I don't know whose idea it is to keep putting this guy in front of the cameras -- his, I guess -- but I approve wholeheartedly. David Axelrod might be the greatest gift the Republican Party has ever b
It's only April, and I am already tired of this Presidential Campaign. It is getting a little ridiculous. Chris Matthews told Michael Steele (former Chair of the Rep Nat Com) the other night that he is upset with "the Republican Party and all of the 'Grand Wizards' who associate with it." Huh?? Totally inappropriate, espeically since Mr. Steele is an Afro American. The Prez, out making "official" White House speeches, has told his audiences that "I was not born wiht a silver spoon in my mouth" - a little knock at his opposition?? David Axelrod, the Prez's campaign committee has been chiding Romney for putting his dog on the roof of his car while on vacation. Come on, lets talk about issues!! The economy, housing problems, unenmplyment, Iran, N Korea, Syria, our National Debt.
David Axelrod couldn't be more wrong. Mitt Romney hasn't even come close to dragging the Republican Party to the "far right" if the Dems go after Romney for being too far to the right, they will fail miserably.
