    Ed Miliband Has An Image Problem. And the Labor Party Thinks Barack Obama Can Fix It. By Sebastian Payne July 14 Ed Miliband is desperate to meet Barack Obama. The BBC is reporting that Miliband, the leader of the opposition party in the United Kingdom, is lobbying heavily for a meeting with the president before next year’s general election. Obama is on a two day state visit to Britain. Why, you might ask, given that the pair met in Buckingham Palace three years ago? The Labor Party thinks that, to boost Miliband's chances of winning next year’s general election, they...
  • Britain's Labour Leader Conscripts Obama Architect David Axelrod for 2015 Election

    Britain's Labour Party leader Ed Miliband has conscripted the services of American campaigns professional David Axelrod, otherwise known as the architect behind President Barack Obama's U.S. election victory in 2008. The appointment of Axelrod to the Labour team is the latest in a long line of foreign consultants brought in to try and help Ed Miliband's team on the run up to the UK General Election in May 2015. Axelrod follows in the footsteps of 69-year-old U.S. community organiser Arnie Graf, who embarrassed Labour by claiming he was working for them, rather than consulting for them, without a UK work...
  • Axelrod: ObamaCare is totally going to change “the attitude that government can’t do anything”

    I lost count of the number of straw men President Obama burned during his absurdly premature ObamaCare victory lap on Tuesday afternoon — because Republicans literally don’t want people to have health insurance or something, dont’cha’ know — but as Axelrod even admits in this segment, the real debate over whether ObamaCare is really going to “change the attitude that government can’t do anything” has hardly even begun. Yes, the (currently dressed-up) 7 million enrollment figure (which the administration first said was their goal, then walked back, then put forward again) might mean that ObamaCare will be insanely tough to...

    David Axelrod, President Obama's top strategist when he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2008, wants Democratic donors to focus on the 2014 elections, rather than Clinton's likely campaign. "With the Senate seriously at risk, and the Koch Brothers spending prodigiously, shouldn't Dem funders be focused on '14 and not '16 races?" Axelrod tweeted Thursday afternoon, in what appears to be a very thinly veiled allusion to the Clinton machine that is already coming together. The tweet comes just days after a Wall Street Journal report on Democratic concerns that the early support for Clinton could hurt the Democratic Party's midterm efforts....

    At this point, only the most disengaged and uninformed among us cannot see that America has been taken over by communists. You can call them socialists or Marxists if you like, but the bottom line is still the same: authoritarian, centralized government control of our nation. This is the culmination of at least a hundred years of steady, subversive communist infiltration of our federal, state and local governments and all our major institutions by those who embrace this evil, tyrannical ideology. There is no reaching across the aisle to work with these people unless you want to draw back a...

Axelrod dismissed people currently losing their health plans as a "small group" of people who bought "substandard policies" in the individual market.

Where does it end? In a way, the hiring of David Axelrod as "senior political analyst" providing commentary at NBC seems like a fool's errand from a business standpoint. After all, the White House senior adviser has pretty much been giving NBC and other big media outlets commentary for free during the Obama administration, if the slavish pro-Obama media bias, as well as secretive media-political collaborations...

"What do you do next?" CBS's Bob Schieffer asked Axelrod. "I'm going to spend part of my time starting an institute of politics at the University of Chicago," said Axelrod. "My feeling is if I can help inspire some young people to get into this arena as candidates, as strategists, as journalists, then that would be a great contribution to make."

    LIMA, Ohio--Speaking to reporters here on Friday after a full day of passionate campaign speeches from President Barack Obama, senior adviser David Axelrod said that Obama's enthusiasm "is coming from his loins. "I've never seen him more exhilarated than he is right now. He believes in what he's doing. He believes in what he's fighting for. You can see in the speech that he's delivering that this is coming from his loins. I just wanted to say loins," Axelrod added with a smile. "I wanted to see if I can get loins in the story."

    President Obama is so excited about the final days of his final campaign that he feels it in his "loins," a senior adviser said Friday. "I've never seen him more exhilarated than he is right now," senior campaign strategist David Axelrod said at a campaign stop with the president in Lima, Ohio. "He believes in what he's fighting for. You can see in the speech that he's delivering that this is coming from his loins."

    What better way to close out our Morning Of The Living Polls with this tongue-in-cheek (lip?) pledge from David Axelrod? When challenged on the sudden expansion of the electoral map for Mitt Romney into previously-considered safe Democratic states, Team Obama's communications director scoffed at the notion that Barack Obama might be vulnerable in Pennsylvania, Michigan, or Minnesota --- despite the fact that his team has shifted millions to those states this week in a last-ditch defensive effort. Axelrod tells the Morning Joe crew that he'll shave off his moustache "of 40 years" live on their show if Obama loses any...

    President Obama’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod said Wednesday he’d shave his signature mustache if Obama loses Minnesota, Michigan or Pennsylvania to Mitt Romney. “I will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states,” Axelrod declared on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe." Provoked by recent polls, the campaigns have been in a turf war over traditionally blue states. The Romney campaign says it sees an opening to steal some electoral votes that many believe Obama should’ve locked down by now. The Obama campaign says this is merely posturing by the Romney campaign, and a sign...

    Much of this blog is spent arguing — persuasively I hope — why the polling data and get out the vote activities favor Mitt Romney this election cycle. But if President Obama wins re-election where could all of this analysis have erred? Possibly the final remaining question that will determine the election outcome is whether Obama campaign manager David Axelrod is correct on the racial composition of the electorate being 72% White or whether is he fooling both himself and his acolytes in the media? President Obama regularly polls with national support among Whites as low as between 36 –...

    Axelrod downplays polls, touts Obama early-voting edgeBy Alexandra Jaffe - 10/28/12 09:36 AM ET A top adviser to President Obama's reelection campaign on Sunday dismissed polls showing Obama lagging GOP candidate Mitt Romney as not reflective of reality. Speaking on CNN's State of the Union, David Axelrod said that recent polls of the race that show Romney with an edge nationally, buoyed by a higher percentage of Americans who believe the Republican nominee would better handle the economy, contradicted what the president’s team is seeing on the ground. "In that particular poll, Candy, that may be the case, but in...

    Four years ago, David Axelrod was exuberantly riding the Obama wave. Today, the poor guy sounds decidedly down in the dumps. Check out this line from an email he sent to people on the Obama campaign list: "I don't know how this is going to end. But no matter what, I know each of us will have given this campaign everything we've got." Yikes! Take two Prozac and call me in the morning if you're still trailing by five in the Gallup poll! More after the jump.

    CANTON, Mass. — Mitt Romney testified under oath in 1991 that the ex-wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg got a fair deal in the couple’s 1988 divorce, even though the company shares Maureen Sullivan Stemberg received were valued at a tenth of Staples’ stock price on the day of its initial public offering only a year later. At the time the Stembergs split, Romney suggested, there was little indication that Staples’ value would soon skyrocket. Romney’s testimony in a post-divorce lawsuit brought in 1990 by Sullivan Stemberg was unsealed on Thursday in Norfolk Probate and Family Court at the Globe’s...
