Axelrod to Bachmann: Obama Has Proven Himself

Friday, 11 Nov 2011 02:36 PM

David Axelrod, President Barack Obama’s top political adviser, is hitting back at Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann for charging that Obama is running his military policy directives from Chicago,  The Hill reports.

“I think that’s nonsense and I think the president has more than proven himself as commander in chief,” Axelrod said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday. “We’ve been on a track since the beginning of the administration to withdraw troops in a responsible way. That’s what we’ve done. And so it really has nothing to do with me.”

In Wednesday’s debate, Bachmann carried the argument of Obama turning to "General Axelrod" on the military and jobs policy.

“President Obama’s plan for job creation has absolutely nothing to do with the true people who know how to create jobs,” the Minnesota representative said. “He should really be going to job creators if he wants to know how to create jobs. Instead, he continues to go to a General Axelrod in Chicago to look for his orders to figure out how to deal with the economy.”
