He Obama campaign waging political war on governor Mitt Romney's home turf.
And governor Romney's team apparently fighting back yesterday's event on the Massachusetts State House.
Posted by David Axelrod the president's chief political strategist did not however go exactly as planned.
Instead axle -- what are the president's top campaign guys was drowned out by Romney supporters.
And Democrats are not too happy about it take a look.
The other Romney's -- played OK.
Get rid of them.
-- -- -- Inside as we grow our economy create.
Reduce the size of government free use.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- These roads and rivers and has made.
This young people here.
And it went on from there.
-- -- dean is president of Gotham ghost writers and Lars Larson is a syndicated radio talk show host.
Both join me now so you've got the Obama campaign coming out calling this juvenile.
And discussing these quote circus like tactics.
And you've got governor Romney himself coming out and saying.
Something about sauce for the goose in the gander here's Romulus and.
We you know I've noticed now that we've gone to a number of events and you've been with -- as well and they -- most of the events I go to our many of the events I go to their.
Large groups of if you'll Obama supporters there heckling me.
Bad day at some point just say you know -- sauce for the goose is just for the gander if they're going to be heckling us what -- not gonna sit back and and play by a very different rules.
If if the president's gonna have is people coming to my rallies and and exactly -- We'll show them that you know we we conservatives have the same kind of the capacity to us.
-- -- -- May get may get I've never defended the idea of drowning out speakers I want everybody -- -- to speak.
But did it it should be understood that has been a tactic of the left forever I'm not defending -- the -- to those people who drowned out David Axelrod.
Frankly I'd like to hear his spin on what is this summer of recovery three and how the unemployment numbers just keep getting worse.
For the president but the fact is I won't stand up and defend rounding out a speaker but they do have to understand.
That if they're gonna ask the Republicans and conservatives to rein in the anger the palpable anger that Americans are feeling at the non performance of this president.
Then they should rein in their supporters as well and I we've been asking for that for a long long time.
Dan they they Axelrod -- this as they kick off for the campaign's newest -- on Mitt Romney in his governor.
His record as governor it was in Massachusetts that's why they were there.
Going -- you know Mitt Romney's home turf to sort of you know go after him.
Is it you know what do you make of the -- -- -- -- below the -- things but that.
And I'm glad to hear what -- said because I couldn't agree more.
You want to know why people hate politics right now it's this event encapsulates it it's.
You know at the country's desperate for grown up leadership.
And what do they get here a rumble between the -- in the flat.
The hacks in the perhaps.
With all due respect to David Axelrod he's a really good ad maker but what is he doing -- being out front and being a spokesman for the Obama campaign just doesn't have the credibility and it's.
It's it's crazy that this is what it's defaulted on the other hand you have a bunch of folks coming in and -- we should be having serious debates.
And shouting him down we've gone from juvenile infantile you know -- And it -- -- a brother -- -- -- -- you -- -- because there's a question about whether these folks -- are drowning him -- would have felt as comfortable doing that to the candidate himself the president of the United States is there -- risk.
Yes in sending out you know your top political guy -- that the candidate.
Yeah there is and I just I don't get this at all either sides angry at large neither side.
That's neither side to being nice to see it be nice to see both -- grow up and just demand some real answers but frankly Megan I understand why people -- this angry we've seen -- all around the world about economic conditions and various different countries for various reasons what we have now is a president who's never held a real job in his life.
Who has no record of success as president.
And he's trying to attack a man who's actually created tens of thousands of jobs.
And the folks who support Romney and say he would make a better president believe that this guy has a real track record of creating jobs and saving broken companies in some cases they couldn't be saved of course.
But the president has no record of this and yet his is spin meisters like axle -- -- try to say we're growing jobs.
No you're not we have net fewer jobs today than we did three years ago.
American women for example have lost three quarters of a million of the jobs that have been lost in the last round months in the Obama administration.
But I -- not a Republican -- women.
I wanna ask Dan about this because you know that there -- some arguing that this makes governor Romney look bad because and reading the reports it it.
Some suggest that he actually -- these people there.
I couldn't tell whether in fact that was the case or whether he just supported what they did -- -- -- the criticism it is it makes him look bad to have done that at all.
But at the end of the day you tell me again because you had.
Supporters of Mitt Romney -- -- there shouting at.
David Axelrod a guy who is you know clearly in charge of the president's reelection campaign and rather than saying you know -- Both Stewart on the other side axle -- That you know you heard the clip you can't handle the truth might rent you can't handle that -- did he miss an opportunity to look like the classy guy in this.
Situation you can say that but you know what this is all meaningless and trivial it's self indulgence shadow boxing -- has no relevance the American people.
And totally misses the point -- -- right people are angry but they're not just angry at President Obama they're angry at the state -- -- our economy that it's totally imbalanced.
There's a concentration of of wealth in the benefits the economy -- -- going to have very few people in the middle class is suffering and the reality is neither side.
Has a credible answer not just had to stop bleeding but to create long term growth and that's why and but -- -- -- -- their cars.
Both sides are going to engage in these.
Finger pointing trying to -- I don't because the realities and this is hard work coming up with the easier to start work.
But they don't have the answers and if they don't have the answers all the -- was here the other guy.
Well I understand it -- as a whole incident they'd be campaigns have now put out a no bullying role in the trying to educate the public.
-- the damage that this kind of.
