Presidential Candidate David Axelrod

The 2012 Presidential Race is getting crowded these days.  As the GOP trims its field to one, the democrats are doubling their choices.  Now Obama is running against David Axelrod…well, not exactly…but I got your attention.

Axelrod is just playing the role of Bad Cop and taking shots at Romney.  In fact, he sounds very much like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, chair of the DNC.  Or maybe Jay Carney.  I suppose there’s only so much you can do with talking points.

While Axelrod is casting his stones at Romney, Obama is at the White House with GWB, acting all moderate.

That’s the BO MO in an election year.  But it’s sort of like voting “Present” all those years in the Illinois Legislature.  That’s how he avoids offending people; let other people take a stand for you and grab the headlines.  Meanwhile, Obama plays to the Independent voter.

It doesn’t always work out for Obama, especially when other prominent democrats refuse to play along.  Axelrod labels Romney as a greedy 1%-er while Bill Clinton, Cory Booker and Deval Patrick are praising Bain Capital and Romney’s work there.

But Obama’s record reveals that he talks middle-of-the-road during the campaign then veers sharply left after the election.  What moderate would ever ask John Podesta, a flaming progressive, to head his transition team for the White House? 

Obama wants to keep his mouth shut and let others feed the liberals.

We don’t get fooled again.
