President Barack Obama’s top campaign adviser David Axelrod appeared rattled as he was booed and shouted down by Mitt Romney supporters during an appearance in Boston on Thursday, the New York Times reported.

What was meant to be a press conference criticizing the Republican nominee’s record as Massachusetts governor in front of the statehouse he once occupied turned into a kind of political rally for Romney supporters, who chanted, “We Want Mitt!” “Broken Record!” and “Go Back to Chicago!”

Axelrod and Democratic state lawmakers pressed on throughout the relentless chants and boos to make their case to the cameras—CNN carried it live—and Axelrod responded to the shouts at one point, saying, “You can’t handle the truth, my friend. You can’t handle the truth,” according to the Times. His attempts to attack Romney’s tenure as governor were mostly lost in the din of the chants. He said Massachusetts under Romney’s leadership was 47th in job creation, according to the Times and that its government expanded at a rate of 6.5 percent.

Axelrod also had to face questions from reporters about the Elizabeth Warren, who admitted yesterday for the first time that she claimed minority status as a Native American at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania. Warren is the Democratic party’s front-runner in the campaign against incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
