Axelrod Speaks the Truth by Accident: Obama Boulevard is a Dead End

AXELROD: The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a — a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead. Uh, and an economy that continues down the road, uh, we’re on where fewer and fewer number of people do very well and everybody else is running faster and faster just to keep pace.

RUSH: Now, “the road we’re on” is Obama Boulevard. The road that we are on “where fewer and fewer do very well, everybody else running faster and faster just keep up,” is Obama Boulevard. That’s the road. It may not be a boulevard. It’s probably a county road or some such thing. Axelrod said this because their mind-set is that this is 2008. “There is no incumbent president right now. We’re running against George W. Bush. We’re gonna pretend that the last three-and-a-half years didn’t happen. We’re not in office. There is no Barack Obama who’s incumbent.” I don’t believe (and nobody else does, either, by the way) that he really meant to characterize the Obama economy the way he did.
