Axelrod: Romney Picking Hispanic VP Would Insult Hispanics or Something

What an obnoxious douchebag. I guess if he picks a woman, that’s also an insult to women.

President Obama’s top political strategist told Univision television that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would be making an “insult” to Hispanics if he picked Sen. Marco Rubio as his running mate in order to try to boost his showing with Hispanics.

In an interview that aired Sunday on “Al Punto,” the Spanish-language network’s political talk show, Mr. Axelrod said picking Mr. Rubio, a Florida Republican, doesn’t make up for Mr. Romney’s stances that are important to Hispanic voters.

“I think it would be an insult to the Hispanic community to choose Senator Rubio if the thinks that that is somehow — if Governor Romney thinks that’s sort of a get-out-of-jail-free card for all of the things and the positions that he’s taken,” Mr. Axelrod said.

This is more insulting and condescending than Romney picking Rubio.
