David Axelrod is spinning Republican victories in gubernatorial elections as victories for Obamaism. Is there anything this President can`t do? (Or lie about?)
George Neumayr in the American Spectator:
" `Victory has a thousand fathers,` said John F. Kennedy, `but defeat is an orphan.`David Axelrod, netting the prize for the most shameless display of post-defeat spinning, added an additional father to Bob McDonnell`s victory in Virginia: Barack Obama.McDonnell ran `not as a Sarah Palin Republican, but more as a Barack Obama centrist,` said Axelrod, according to liberal columnist E.J. Dionne.Axelrod`s fanciful description of Obama as a `centrist` betrays what he denies: that hundreds of thousands of voters in major states once thought permanently blue did recoil from a year of radical, Obama-led change, both real and proposed."
Barack Obama as a centrist was alwaysÂ a David Axelrod created
myth. This is something we said before
the election, and Americans who get their news from the New York Times
are finding out afterwards.
