David Axelrod Unable to Answer a Question
David Axelrod, Senior Strategist for Obama’s re-election campaign, appeared on the Sunday News shows to promote the President’s agenda prior to the Democratic National Convention this coming week.
Axelrod, who previously has played deaf and dumb to things around the Obama campaign, was completely dismissive with Chris Wallace in his non-answer to a question posed to him.
Unable to directly answer the question, Wallace presents some statistical evidence for Axelrod to address. Once again Axelrod is dumbfounded on the basics of answering questions on the national stage.
Gas prices: $1.85 per gallon then, $3.78 now.
Median income: $54,983 then, $50,964 now.
National debt: $10.6 trillion then, $15.9 trillion now.
Unemployment: 7.8% then, 8.3% now.
And the ongoing national question is, as it was during the Ronald Reagan political campaign towards the White House, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Is there more or less unemployment…than there was four years ago?”
