Today the Obama campaign, in obvious coordination with the Washington Post, expected to launch a new attack against presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney from the steps of the Massachusetts state capital. The Post wrote a story critical of Romney’s time as governor, Axelrod intended to ride that nifty wave into a broadside that, unlike all their others, might actually stick to Romney. But as you can see in the video below, the Romney camp out-maneuvered them big-time:
I’ve never seen Axelrod so rattled, and my guess is that his being so shaken has little to do with the hecklers and more to do with the fact that Axelrod now knows that Mitt Romney is no John McCain.
As we saw in this year’s Republican primary, Romney is a tough customer who doesn’t allow the media to set the rules. And if you remember, even though the media buried this story, last week, Romney had an event pretty much spoiled by Occupy-style hecklers organized by the Obama campaign.
