Axelrod: Obama May Have Thought Bombings Were Tied to ‘Tax Day’

By Lisa Barron   |   Tuesday, 16 Apr 2013 11:59 AM

Former White House adviser David Axelrod said Tuesday President Barack Obama did not immediately call Monday’s Boston bombings a “terrorist attack” because it could have been related to “tax day,” The Weekly Standard reports.

"The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11. You use those words and it means something very specific in people’s mind," Axelrod told NBC News' Chuck Todd. "And I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day."

He continued, “Was it someone who was pro — you know, you just don’t know. And so I think his attitude is, let’s not put any inference into this, let’s just make clear that we’re going to get the people responsible.”
