Axelrod Digs Romney in Conference Call

“If Romney can’t stand up to Rush Limbaugh, how can he stand up to Ahmadinejad?” asked David Axelrod during a conference call Wednesday. He and fellow Obama adviser Jim Messina joined members of the media on the phone to discuss the results of Tuesday’s primaries and the state of the race. Axelrod was, of course, referring to Mitt Romney’s reaction to Rush Limbaugh’s now infamous rant in which he called a Georgetown law student and birth-control advocate a “slut.” When asked about Limbaugh’s comments, Romney simply stated that’s “not the language I would have used,” a response Axelrod called “cowardly.”
