Why is Axelrod Speaking for Democrats?
Today’s “Meet The Press” on NBC, hosted by David Gregory, was about how the presidential race is shaping up for 2012.
Gregory interviewed one representative for the Democratic Party and one representative for the Republican Party.
David Axelrod represented the Democrats and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus represented the Republicans.
Gregory did a good job asking tough questions of both guys and not letting either one off the hook. They both reacted exactly as you would expect them to.
- Why is Obama’s former chief adviser, David Axelrod, representing the Democratic Party?
- Why isn’t the DNC party chair speaking for the Democratic Party like the RNC party chair is speaking for the Republican Party?
David Axelrod pops up all over the place speaking for the Democratic Party. Why? It doesn’t make sense.
The same question could be asked of Karl Rove, too.
Shouldn’t DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz be representing the Democratic Party instead of David Axelrod in these situations?
Axelrod no longer has any official job in politics or government anymore. Axelrod is a private citizen living in Chicago who runs a consulting firm.
When an outside paid consultant and close friend of the President is representing the Democratic party instead of its official paid representative then it is legitimate curiosity to wonder how much the President’s friend is being paid.
How big are the consulting fees that Axelrod is raking in from Democratic campaign coffers? Why is Axelrod the mouthpiece (Chicago-style) for President Barack Obama?
Will the final total be in the millions?
