PANIC: More papers endorse Romney; Axelrod mumbles about ‘cold, hard data,’ clings to … Boston Globe

Oh, dear. Poor Davey seems to have his creepy briefs in a spin-tastic, panic-stricken twist. Polls are turning, newspaper endorsements are flipping. But he has “cold, hard data.” At high noon. Or something.

Could the tidal wave of newspaper endorsements for Mitt Romney, including the Des Moines Register,  have anything to do with it, perhaps? Shockingly, he didn’t parrot Stephanie Cutter’s line about the Des Moines Register not being based in reality. Cutter’s reality is in Bizarro world, evidently.

But, wait! Guess what? Obama might totally win Massachusetts! David Axelrod and other members of Team Obama up the stompy foot idiocy by breathlessly touting The Boston Globe as an arbiter of who is winning. No, for reals! They are actually bitterly clinging to The Boston Globe.

Twitter users are gasping for breath.


And, wait, what’s this?

Here is some “cold, hard data” for you, sweetie.

And what about the battleground state Ohio?

That’s right. As Twitchy reported, Rasmussen now has Romney at 50 and Obama at 48 in Ohio.

Yes, we will. On the plus side, Axelrod, the egg on your face may cover that unfortunate mustache.

  • Josephine (D)

    Yeah, and the lemmings over at the Toledo Blade want Obama re-elected. How much you wanna bet that if (God forbid) he were re-elected, he’d try to shut down the papers that endorsed Romney?

    At least some newspapers aren’t totally lockstep with the Democrats.

  • LoriGirl

    Anyone know if the L.A. Times has made an endorsement?

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Axelrod. Go take a break and walk down the sidewalk in Chicago.

    Clear your head and relax. It’s not the end of the world.

    Obama will write a few more autobiographies and you can go on MSNBC and try to sell them. Good luck with that.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Maybe Axelrod should take that walk over on the lake shore a little later when Sandy’s winds have started throwing the waves high enough that they’re washing over onto Lake Shore Drive.

  • Owen007

    Perhaps this is the expression of freedom of speech that Obama’s embassy staff in Cairo was REALLY concerned about. 😉

  • orringtonmom (D)

    boston… practice law without a license? run for office? sure! hell, kill people. we’ll elect you. our standards are quite low…

    • Shawn Smith

      Now let’s be fair. We don’t know that Ted Kennedy *killed* her. He just left her to die . . . and didn’t tell anybody till the next day. You know, that doesn’t seem much better.

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Surely you know that he was so distraught that he spent HOURS on the spot praying rosaries until he could even bring himself to leave!

        • RightThinking1

          Not so easy to do when you’ve got that sympathy-seeking neck brace on.

  • SammFan

    I think he means “hard data” of a “moral victory” – that O is as close as he is despite 4 disastrous years at the helm.

  • TocksNedlog

    Amazing how all of a sudden the candidate whose Massachusetts residency was being questioned has now been dissed by his “home state” newspaper.

  • Typewriterstreaming

    On election night he’ll be a bitter diaper clinger.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Axelrude was lost to Stephanie Cutter’s reality a long time ago.

  • BeyondPolls

    Today Reuters has decided that Ohio doesn’t really matter anymore…


  • Silenttype78

    Charlie Sheen said the same thing.

  • Junie3

    I hope the egg covers those eyebrows too. David consider the Boston Globe endorsement a hug for the Obama camp. They fill your pain.

  • Mischelle Divietro

    I wish someone would start talking about Bath house Barry and the down low club staring Jeremiah Wright. I’m sure Axelrod would have kittens over this overlooked subject.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Oh yeah, the Boston Glob endorses the Demonrat, yeah that’s a real shakeup shocker, huh?

    • RightThinking1

      Yeah, shocking…, pretty much like the NY Times doing it. I guess the Times figured they had better get it on paper before they folded.

  • JoeMusgo

    ‘I don’t want to be ambiguous about this at all: We’re winning this race…’

    Does anyone know whether Axelrod was whistling through a graveyard as he made this statement?

    • James Neal

      Give him a little credit. That’s the first un-ambiguous statement that he’s uttered in five years. There might be hope for him and his 70’s porn mustache yet…

  • Peyton

    @davidaxelrod If I were you, I’d focus on Newspaper endorsements that weren’t in solidly #BlueStates. #TCOT. #RomneyRyan = #FiringAxelrod

  • John Hanover

    Here are some cold hard facts for you.

    1. All polls leading up to the debates had Obama in huge margins most of those now show him trailing.

    2. All polling data is considered inconclusive if 1994 and 2010 models blow away 2008 model they desperately cling to but only by the losing side.

    3. Axelrod and others will be out of work come January if not sooner.

    4. Romney now has a chance to turn indigo blue Minnesota red for the first time since 1972

    5. Libya is still a big deal since we had a commander-in-chief purposely ignore all pleas for help contrary to his duties and his humanity.

    6. Obama if and that is a huge if, gets reelected I look forward to his impeachment for not just Libya but other crimes against the Constitution and the American people.

  • RightThinking1

    I am reminded of the fight scene between King Arthur and the Black Knight in Monty Python’s “Holy Grail” Fast forward to 1:24 for the fun…
    Rofl…: “What are you going to do…, bleed on me?

  • ML438

    Mitt Romney was born and raised in Michigan, so I would say his hometown paper is The Detroit News, which endorsed him last week. I believe Axelrod is grasping at straws.

  • Jack Deth

    Is anyone else getting very tired of listening and watching Obama and his slimy henchmen through the warped prism of ‘Lying Sack of Crap-Vision’?

    Can’t wait for Axelrod to pull in Stephanie Cutter, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Jay Carney to have a Barbershop Quartet rendition of Chip Diller’s “Remain Calm!… All is Well!!!” moment from ‘Animal House’.

    Their solo attempts become more lame and irrelevant by the minute.

  • Love of Country

    Are these idiots still writing all those creepy messages on their hands?

    You could tell they were jealous of Sarah Palin’s more sensible “hand writing” a couple years ago because libs berated her for weeks on end in the media for writing on her hands. And any time Republicans beat Dems to the punch about anything, ANYTHING, the libs first trash said activity ad nauseum and then turn around and copy it and do it themselves … unbelievable!

    • Jack Deth

      Hi, LoC:

      Deep down inside and even on the surface. Liberals and Dems (I repeat myself) actually believe and wants us to behave like them. That way, they believe they have a common language and can control the narrative. As have since the 1960s.

      Nothing could be further from the truth and that angers and annoys them to the point viciousness, shared hissy-fits, vandalism, illogic and insanity.

      • Love of Country

        I agree.

  • dobermangang

    Obama now losing in Ohio in Rasmussen latest poll: Romney 50 – Obama 48.
    Expect bombing of Libyan aspirin factory any day now. Obama might even
    get another Nobel Peace Prize this week.

  • Juan_Rico

    I have this image of the Bamster and Axlegrease being drug out of the White House by security kicking and screaming: “BUT…. But…. The Boston Globe!!!! The Boston Globe…. Cold hard data…. BOSTON…… GLOBE!!!!!!”

    Yeah, that’ll be sweet.

  • RealityBitesBack

    Cold, hard data? Sounds like fraudulent absentee ballots to me. I hope the Romney Administration does a sweeping audit of the 2008 & 2012 elections and prosecutes the outrageous fraud that we have seen.

    SEIU is busing people from state to state so that they can vote. Anyone working on THAT story???

  • Jim Denney

    Earth to Axelshaft; we’ve had enough of Dope & Strange. Don’t let the White House door hit you in the ass….

  • linda

    Axelrod is a punk.

  • snuggle

    yeesh! Dabney Coleman has really let himself go.

  • JD Olson

    Hey Dave, at this point, it might be more helpful for you to check the open jobs listings in newspapers.

  • rant stocks

    These crooks really think the fix is in, we’ll see NOV.7 if Obama is the winner there will be repecustions,because the sane will call fowl….

  • Brett McMicken

    is he channeling charlie sheen? winning!

  • tomtom1983

    They seem to forget that “cold hard data” in liberal speak is actually fabricated memos from Media Matters and the big O.

    Its a very clear indicator you may have loss touch with reality if you believe your fabricated data is actually factual.

  • John Kissel

    & the UN thinks the GOP is commiting voter fraud. sounds like Axelrod thinks they got cold hard facts in the bag…hmmm he seems to know the out come before the Majority has even voted…

  • Paul C.

    Gee, the Boston globe endorses Obama. Only because the NYT owns them. So shove it Axelrod.

  • BeeKaaay

    When he talks about “cold hard data” he talks about all the dead people voting for Obama. That’s what is cold and hard. Besides typical leftwingwackos.

  • TomJB

    If by “cold, hard data” he means data cryo-frozen in 2008, then maybe it does show Obama winning. But it still means nothing today.

  • Bill Bradham

    Anyone remember Dabney Coleman in the movie ‘Nine to Five’ back in 1980? Yeah, that’s Axelrod.

    • marcellucci

      I thought he was going for the “Mr. Drysdale” look……

  • JTwig

    Axelrod is right, considering that MN, MI, and PA are not actually swing states and Obama is slightly ahead in early voting in all three of those state. Of course the fact is those three states have been true Blue since Reagan left office is another story.
