Axelrod: Romney’s ‘Oblivious’ To Everyday Life

Posted by on Apr 03, 2012 at 9:44 am

So says the man who works for a guy who spends his life on vacation, golfing or watching basketball. I noticed watching “Mad Men” the other night there was a swipe at Mitt Romney’s father, although that can well be more timed to bash Mitt. Well, here’s the oily David Axelrod to continue with the “Mad Men” theme. How convenient.

A top campaign adviser to President Obama Tuesday called Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney “oblivious” to the concerns of everyday Americans and suggested he is living in a different era.

The former Massachusetts governor is “oblivious to the experiences of everyday people,” David Axelrod said on “CBS This Morning.”

Romney appears to view the world through the “rear view mirror,” Axelrod charged, pointing to his opposition to requiring employers to pay for health insurance that covers contraception and to comments calling Russia the number one foe of the United States.

“I think he must watch Mad Men and think it’s the evening news,” he said, referring to the popular television program set in the 1960s. “He is just in a time warp.”

So one day the name Romney gets a mention on a television show, the next day Obama’s advisers are repeating it. What a coincidence!

    So. Romney has the impression that he can joyride in a jumbo jet on date night? At taxpayer expense? Who knew?
