David Axelrod Hypocrisy Bomb Of The Day

There’s hypocrisy and then there’s the load of crap former Obama senior advisor David Axelrod fed to Yahoo’s Katie Couric.

Axelrod started his harsh criticism of Hillary Clinton, saying “I’ve said many times that Hillary Clinton was a bad candidate in 2007 when she was kind of cloaked in this presumption of inevitability, and therefore very cautious. And she carried her candidacy like a porcelain bowl and didn’t wanna drop it and didn’t venture much.”

Axelrod predicted that if Hillary can “throw off caution and go out there and relate very much to the American people she may have a better chance of winning. After she lost the Iowa caucuses, she became a much better candidate . . . she felt freer to be revealing of herself, her own vulnerabilities and struggles, to identify with other people’s struggles. And she became a much more potent candidate. Frighteningly so, if you were on the other side. She needs to be that person.”

But here’s the kicker.

“You say that the message ‘Ready for Hillary’ isn’t enough of a message?” Couric asked.

“Yeah,” Axelrod responded. “I’ve said ‘Ready for Hillary’ doesn’t tell you what you’re ready for . . . ready for what?”

“People are so eager for” Hillary to run for president, Axelrod explains, “that there’s this cult of personality growing up and that’s dangerous.”

This may be the mother lode of hypocrisy precisely because David friggin’ Axelrod was the puppet master pulling the strings on the guy whose entire 2008 presidential campaign was built around and based on empty slogans like “Forward, “Hope and Change,” and “Yes We Can!”

 I appreciate Axelrod taking jabs at Hillary. But his remarks in the interview above are beyond stupid.
