Axelrod: We Need More Time

Last night on CNN Piers Morgan Tonight, a dwindling audience, therefore nobody heard this, which is why I am going to replay it for you here. Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN talked to David Axelrod, Obama’s reelect strategerist. And Piers Morgan Tonight said, “The average American, when they come to vote, the big question for them will be, has Barack Obama done enough to repair the horrific damage from the financial crisis? Do I have an expectation that he will continue that process?”

AXELROD: The president’s done a great job of turning around what was a catastrophic situation, but that’s not the project that he was running. To assume — he ran for a larger reason, which was to reinvigorate the American dream in the twentieth century and for many, many years before the crisis people have been struggling, kind of running in place, their paychecks have been flat, their expenses have been going up, harder to educate their kids, harder to retire, and those are the projects that he’s been working on, and it’s gonna take some time to achieve them. The question is whether people say, “You know what, I want to keep on going down that path, that’s the right vision.”

RUSH: So there you have it. Axelrod confirming last night on CNN, “Yep, yep, it’s worse than we thought. It’s gonna take longer than we thought, and the question is do we want to stay on this path of the right vision? Do we want to change horses in the middle of the stream?” There you heard it from the horse’s mouth. Don’t doubt me, folks, don’t doubt me.
