Axelrod Says Romney Is Most Secretive Since Nixon

Axelrod Says Romney Is Most Secretive Since Nixon

Mr. Truth-in-Reporting David Axelrod has now compared Mitt Romney to former President Richard Nixon, claiming:

“This is the most secretive candidate since Richard Nixon. What happened after Nixon is we as a country said we need a higher level of disclosure, so people know who their candidates are, what their entanglements are, and we can make judgments on it. Gov. Romney and his campaign have stonewalled and are trying to turn the clock back 50 years on transparency and disclosure.”

Wait a minute. Axelrod, Barack Obama’s mouthpiece, is saying Romney is secretive?


Let’s see Obama’s grades in college.

Let’s see who got him into Columbia University.

Let’s see who got him into Harvard law school.

Let’s see who paid for his trips abroad.

Let’s see his medical records.

Let’s see his client list when he was a lawyer.

And I’m sure our readers have a number of other questions they would like answered. Among them:

Let’s see the full Department of Justice records on Fast and Furious.

Let’s see all the backroom dealmaking over stimulus dollars.

Let’s see the full records of all meetings between President Obama and union leaders.

The list goes on and on.

Do us a favor, Axelrod; until your man can be forthright about who he really is and how he got to where he is, don’t go around saying someone who will answer all those questions, like Mitt Romney, is secretive.
