David Axelrod Channels His Inner Col. Nathan Jessup As He’s Heckled In Boston (Video)

President Obama’s chief campaign strategist David Axelrod, the Meyer Lanskey of the Obama campaign, got a less than warm welcome at an appearance in Boston, Massachusetts today.


Obama senior adviser David Axelrod was met with protests from Romney supporters at a press event in Massachusetts today. A frustrated Axelrod, who was shouted down, tells the protesters “they can’t handle the truth.”

After his brief remarks, Axelrod asked for questions from the press but was met with more banter from Romney protesters with slogans like “where are the jobs?”

“You can’t handle the truth, my friends. That’s the problem. You can handle the truth, you quiet down,” Axelrod said.

At first listen, I could sweat Mr. Axelrod says ‘Taxachussets’ at the beginning of the video.
