Axelrod stonewalls on ‘private sector doing fine’ remark, cries about poor, little public sector

.@crowleyCNN asked @davidaxelrod for 3rd straight time if he agrees "private sector is doing fine" and for 3rd time got no answer.

Rut-roh! Is he throwing President Obama under the bus?

David Axelrod was questioned about President Obama’s inane and insane statement that the private sector is “doing fine.” As Twitchy reported, that remark sparked a well-deserved firestorm.

.@davidaxelrod is getting pretty worked up on CNN. He is maybe not #doingfine

Oh, dear. He’s not the only one: Obama was forced to frantically try to backpedal on Friday. Clearly, it did not work.

Chyron under @davidaxelrod during ABC interview … "Obama's Re-election In Peril?" Obama campaign is not #doingfine

David Axelrod continued to stonewall, while frantically trying to spin. Simple questions are hard!

Axelrod agitated on @CNNsotu. @crowleyCNN having hard time not being interrupted. Lean, mean Chicago machine seems a little shaky suddenly

Axelrod getting a little testy on State of the Union. Guess he's not #doingfine this morning.

Axelrod refuses to answer Crowley's question–"Do you agree with the President that the private sector is doing fine"

@CrowleyCNN @davidaxelrod @barackobama I have never seen Axelrod more defensive than I did 2day on CNN's "State of the Union" — pretty sad.

*sigh* on @cnn @axelrod asks"what planet is Romney on" as he says the way to accelerate private sector is to expand public sector #lnyhbt

Bless his heart. Isn’t he just precious?

David Axelrod: "It's [the private sector] certainly doing better than the public sector." #cnnsotu

Oh dear. The cuckoo pants is strong in this one. The thing is, that is why President Obama’s “private sector is doing fine” blunder wasn’t really a blunder. It is what the Left believes. They want a weaker private sector and a far more powerful public sector. The State and their union thug buddies should rule all, in their minds. The private sector is icky what with all that free market stuff and all.

Twitter users are not fans of Mr. Axelrod.

David Axelrod is probably the most obnoxious political hit-man of the last few decades.

Axelrod is just a hack –and a bad one and that–and has a cheesy mustache

— eddy hooks (@eddyhooks) June 10, 2012

'We've had a rough week. Let's get David Axelrod out there to help clean it up' –things nobody should ever say.

Snap! Remember this in November. Hey, what’s a little worsening economy and horrific jobs reports? We need more wasteful spending on government stuff! See, not only do the Obama administration and his surrogates believe that the private sector is doing fine, they believe the government and union thugs need more power.

Update: Video of Axelrod’s squirming.

Update: D’oh, Axelrod!
