Political commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod knocked former Vice President Joe Biden for tweeting a video of himself and former President Obama ahead of Thursday night's presidential primary debate, writing that Biden's attempts to tie himself to his ex-boss's legacy were far from subtle.
Axelrod, who served as chief strategist for both Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns, tweeted that Biden was "claiming co-authorship of Obamas record" in a way that was "about as subtle as a screen door on a submarine."
TWEET: "This pre-debate video tribute to @BarackObama from @JoeBiden is about as subtle as a screen door on a submarine. Not only is he claiming co-authorship of Obamas record. Hes sending message to the others: You want to attack Obamas record? Make my day!
Barack Obama was a great president. We dont say that enough.
Since when should a guy who was VP be expected to be subtle about tying himself to the legacy (such as it is) of his boss? Biden sure isn’t going to win on the basis of his Senate career or anything he did as VP, such as going to funerals and groping wives and kids of people getting awards.
I do not understand Axelrod’s metaphor. A screen door on a submarine should not be a matter of subtlety, but of uselessness.
You really want to stand on Barry’s legacy? They are not going to be able to drag Joe to the convention with a rope and hoist.
Yes, he got the submarine metaphor wrong.
I hope the dumb bastards does attach himself to his idiot bosses legacy!!!
“I do not understand Axelrods metaphor. A screen door on a submarine should not be a matter of subtlety, but of uselessness.”
That was my first thought too. I am beginning to wonder if more than about one percent of the American population even understand English now.
Indeed. My favorite mixed/ridiculous metaphor:
"Sir, I smell a rat; I see him forming in the air and darkening the sky; but I'll nip him in the bud." (attributed to Sir Boyle Roche, 1736-1807)
Nothing like mixing metaphors.
Obama was the worst president in our country’s history. By far.
Democrats do not understand how submarines work.
Axelrod is about as useful as tits on a bull.
The Democrat party consists of Dumb Democrats calling other Democrats Dumb.
“’as subtle as a screen door on a submarine’”
Makes no sense.
Perhaps, “as subtle as a turd in the punch bowl”
“as subtle as a fart in the confession booth”
Hey! That’s racist against Poles!
Slow Joe has every right ... he was Obama’s step-n-fetchit butt-boy for 8 years ....
It would make more sense to say “As subtle as a trident missile fired from a submarine.”
