David Axelrod Calls Possible Rubio VP Pick ‘An Insult To The Hispanic Community’

During an interview with Spanish language politics show, David Axelrod spewed forth from his face gutter that ‘It would be an insult to the Hispanic community” for Marco Rubio to be Mitt Romney’s Vice President pick.

h/t to Mediaite

When asked if choosing Cuban-American Senator Marco Rubio as a vice presidential candidate could help Romney make up some lost ground, Axelrod not only believed Sen. Rubio to potentially have no impact in the campaign, but called putting him on the ticket “an insult to the Hispanic community.”

Frances Martel continues:

The comment is interesting for a number of reasons– the first and most obvious being that it is insulting in itself to think that trusting someone of Latin American descent to share a ticket is an “insulting” thing to do. Certainly Democrats didn’t seem to think it insulting to women when Walter Mondale chose Geraldine Ferraro as his vice presidential pick.

To further the point, how is it not insulting to the Black community to have a Black president who completely goes against their opinion on gay marriage? Polling shows Blacks are much more likely to be against gay marriage, and yet curiously, no one finds it insulting that they support Obama overwhelmingly.

This is just the latest in this adminstration’s recent admissions of disdain for Latinos. While they believe that they have a stranglehold on this voting bloc, they will never actually fulfill their election-time promises. Given how their policies and promises have helped destroy the African-American community, it would be behoove the Latino community to gravitate towards less government help, and more economic freedom.

In February, Obama’s campaign manager mocked Latinos by repeating a line having to do with eating chimichangas. There was a furor among conservative Latinos, but of course the lapdog media gave it little coverage.

Harry Reid also chimed in to tell Marco Rubio to not forget he’s Hispanic, again trying to push the lie that amnesty for illegals is the only thing we care about.

Last month, a Democratic strategist was quoted as saying disdainfully that they were not worried about the Latino vote, since they had enough money, and could buy off the community.

When Obama finally began his re-election campaign, he foolishly planned the opening event on Cinco De Mayo. Rather than include Hispanics, he decided he would push the holiday back, to get it out of the way. This is no surprise since he called it “Cinco de Cuatro” one year.

Even when begging Latinos for campaign contributions, Obama couldn’t respect the community enough to meet his supporters without combining the event with the LGBT cause.

And of course, there’s always the specter of Fast and Furious that resulted in at least 300 dead Mexican nationals through the illegal sale of guns to drug czars, authorized by ATF. What little media coverage has been allowed to dribble out has still not inspired enough anger to demand that Eric Holder and the Department of Justice stop stonewalling the investigation.

All of these would gaffes would be fatal to a re-election campaign if it were coming from Republicans, as you can bet the media would continuously demand answers, and gin up outrage with intense coverage. Not for a Democrat, and especially not for Obama.

Still, there are signs that the democratic boot on the neck of this minority group is lessening in strength. We reported months ago on the failure of the expected explosion in Latino voters to materialize. Hopefully this is evidence of the Latino community waking up to the lies, broken promises, and insults from this feckless, arrogant administration.

    That campaign just disdains anything conservative-period.

  • Sober_Thinking


    Axelrod always sounds and looks like he just got done taking a hairy growler and didn’t flush.

    Everything this man says is a lie… just like his master.

  • Joseph ewing

    They can’t run on their dismal record, so their only choice is to attack, attack, attack. And America isn’t buying it.

    It’s going to be fun to watch this bunch implode.

  • Nukeman60

    Wow. It’s interesting to hear this man spew garbage. Either he is so stupid to think Rubio isn’t liked, not only in his own community, but across the board, or there is a concerted effort within the Democrat party to get Obama removed at the convention and replace him with Hillary.

    As to his stupidity, what he continues to say, day after day, is driving people away from their own base. How can it not be a landslide in November?

    As to making Obama’s ratings drop like a rock to get Hillary in, I think they are doing a wonderful job at it, intentionally or unintentionally.

    Either way, they are in complete chaos in the White House. It’s no wonder the rats are fighting amongst themselves.

  • FutureOnePercent

    “I mean, who would possibly just vote for someone based on their race, right?! Am I right?… hello?”


  • heres a clue for all politicians and citizens.

    you’re american.
    worry about that vote and group only.

  • Joe

    Hopefully their “strategy” will backfire

    We all know – again and again – that ZERO has a ZERO record

    and he can only speak badly about Romney

    BUT we all know this already – I hope the rest of the Nation gets it.

    I am hopeful – because every day Obama seems to be going into the Abyss

    ASELrod looks like and is a weasel – I guess he never looks in the mirror

    He looks like he never told any truth to anybody – ever

  • poljunkie

    Is that fear we’re seeing David?

  • As a Hispanic, I couldn’t disagree more.

  • anneinarkansas

    Axe is an insult to America!

  • PJRodman

    The liberals are incensed by black conservatives “leaving the plantation”- it stands to reason they expect the same loyalty from Latinos. Broad assumptions and generalizations about groups-or voting blocs- being unable to think for themselves and unwilling to give up the government tit is so incredibly racist in the first place…poor minorities can’t take care of themselves.

  • lilium479

    Axelrod is a disgrace to America.

  • aPLWBinAK

    It is not hyperbole or name calling to call Axelrod a Communist…he really is, as is well documented in this March 2012 American Spectator story…. http://spectator.org/archives/2012/03/09/david-axelrod-lefty-lumberjack

  • “Spewed from his face gutter” I like the way you speak Sooper! 😀 Axelrod is a moron.

  • Axelrod is imploding. I’m starting to wonder if he is trying to sink Obama.

  • MaxineCA

    I love sitting back and watching the O’s campaign implode. It’s quit entertaining! Let’s see how many Americans they’ve already insulted:

    Women – Too stupid to figure out how to obtain birth control
    Catholics – Sit down, shut up, we don’t care about the constitution or your rights
    Blacks and Latinos – Voter ID is bad because you are too stupid to get an ID
    All conservatives – Pushing their LGBT agenda
    And the list goes on and on.

    I hope they keep flapping their yaps, as it really does show their true colors.

  • How dare a Hispanic be Conservative and venture off the Socialist Plantation of the Democrat Party.

  • did you seek help for you mental disease Rot Axle?
    Oh, nobody can help you?
    We know it; it was a rhetorical question…………………….
    BWT – you’ll get points with us if you slug Erikk HoldHer 😉

  • actionsspeaklouder

    Axelrod is bascially telling Hispanics that one of their own isn’t fit to hold the Vice Presidency of the United States. This is extremely insulting to Hispanics. Obama has not and will not do a thing for Hispanics – no matter how many times he promises them he will, he won’t. My fellow Americans – WAKE UP and vote Obama OUT.

    • WestGAFlash

      Axlerod is extremely insulting. Period.

  • dk_in_tn

    Axelrod is worried. He should be. Obama is going to be a one-term president.

  • Well, I think it was an insult for the black community to have voted for someone as base, shallow, naive, and unqualified as Obama for president. There was lots (and I mean lots) of proof out there in 2008 that this guy had no business running for president. He had a slogan and good reading skills and that’s about it. Now look at where we are today. Feel any buyer’s remorse yet? There’s always November to make right what went horribly wrong in 2008.

  • tularockstar

    Doesn’t AxleFraud looks “Hittler-Like” if he’d cut the sides of his mustache? If he’d done that, he would look as he was separated from birth with Hittler.

  • 911Infidel

    Speaking of insults, I think that David Axlefraud should get a new brain after he buys himself a new face. Geez, that dude is one fugly-a$$ cretin.

  • sparkyintexas

    If Axlerod thinks it’s a bad idea, it must be the right thing to do!

    Barry would probably give Joe “Bite me” the boot in exchange for Rubio in a heartbeat…

  • Rubio is a qualified candidate. Axelrod’s comments that Hispanics shouldn’t be allowed to make the choice themselves over whether Rubio is a qualified candidate is an insult to the Hispanic community.

    • jlbs

      I agree, Rubio is MORE than qualified. But he was 4 years old before his parents became US Citizens, so he is not eligible. It doesn’t make me any happier than it does you.

  • jackl92

    I am so happy to know that soon this jerk will be out of a job.

  • stevenbiot

    He says that Rubio’s stances aren’t conducive to the values of hispanics. Axelrod then goes on to frame the values of Hispanics, by saying that hispanics wholeheartedly agree with the federal governments inability to enforce our immigration laws, and give citizenship to law breakers. Liberals are race card using, class warfare practicing wankers.

  • K-Bob

    Más excelente, Soopermexican!

    This kind of stuff makes me want Rubio to take over Biden’s “Gaffe Chair,” and restore some dignity to the office.

  • lambfound

    Now we know for certain who they fear the most as the VP.

  • poljunkie

    Here’s an idea Mr Axelrod, we actually vote for the ticket that represents our values and beliefs. The candidate and his pick that follows the Constitution.

    We dont base it on the candidates skin color, the way they saunter, the way they dance, the way they twitter or the way they sing or their Facebook friends.

    Is that ok Mr Axelrod. We want a ticket that can lead us.

    • kong1967

      I kinda disagree with that. Don’t get me wrong, WE as voters don’t care about any of that, but I believe McCain chose Palin because she was a woman and it seemed like the right time to use her to boost the ticket with the womens’ vote. The reason I believe that is because he treated her like crap, wouldn’t let her be interviewed by conservative reporters, and blamed the loss entirely on her.

      Little does his pea brain know that she was the only thing worth voting for on the ticket at all.

      • poljunkie

        I agree about Mc Cain- Sarah Palin dragged his sorry butt nearly across the finish line.

        But im looking for candidates that will do their best to uphold the Constitution. AND one that will represent me, and my family and our beliefs, and interests.. We are very concerned about the next Supreme Court Justices….
        Some things that are important to us- and Im pretty sure we agree:
        Less government intrusion, less taxes, teaching/promoting self help rather than dependence, self control on all levels, respect, recognizing that it is ok to be successful in life. Its ok to be Christian or follow any other religion.
        Bring back the Pledge of Allegiance. exercising the power of the free market
        drilling now, and becoming less reliant on foreign oil.

        I dont care if he/she is white, black, latino whatever.
        I dont care if he is on FACEBOOK or Twitter. I dont care if he can dance, or sing….or even what his golf handicap is. Those things dont concern me. As President his job is to run the country. Not to build a Farm on Facebook.

        I just want a some integrity and someone willing to stop the insanity.

        • kong1967

          I’m with ya. Although I believe it’s a good thing to get Romney in because if we take both houses a conservative President will be a must to get any bills passed, I’m worried about his urging Congress to bend over backwards to appease the libs. I hope he doesn’t interfere and I hope a Republican Congress gives Pelosi and Reid a taste of their own medicine. Lock them bastards out and if they don’t like it tell them maybe next time they’re in power they’ll think twice about excluding the Republicans on everything. Besides, we won’t be able to turn anything around if we keep compromising. That’s how we got here to begin with.

  • Axelrrhoid.

  • An insult? What’s an insult is you Asselrod!

  • Mr Axelrod can shove a rod up his axel.

    That’s an insult!

  • bigtexan2

    No one should know what a great insult to the American people is but the man (Axelrod) who spends every waking hour licking the boots of the Insulter in Chief.

  • jlbs

    I don’t have time to read all the comments now so I apologize if someone else already pointed out that Rubio is no more a natural born citizen than the present resident in OUR White House.

    Why does Axelrod remind me of…..

  • nehemiahreturns

    Axelrod is an expert in get-out-of-jail-free cards. It’s pretty much the only thing he’s an expert on, unless you count brainwashing the brain-dead.

  • smbren

    Blah,Blah,Blah with these people. Just like Condi was a disgrace to black people. Condi was for a time, the most important female in the world, but of course that is not good enough for the democratic party.

  • Listen to this guy, we paid off this group and we paid off that group so if you want to keep seeing the special interests doled your way you better vote for the Obama Stash.

  • Jay

    What Axelrude was actually saying was, “You can’t steal the Hispanic vote from us like that!”

  • bobemakk

    Hey Axelrod, you are an insult to ALL Americans.

  • Mackie72

    My stepkids are all Hispanic and they say they’d vote Mitt/Marco in a heartbeat. Axelrod looks and talks like a pillhead. Is he doing the Vikees?

  • SahibandCrew

    He’s like a liberal Karl Rove but without the brains and charm.

  • What? Axelrod thinks he has the corner market of spanish people? There is many of them that do not agree with him or Obama. And there is some that only wants citizenship and says they’ll worry about the rest later, without realizing or admitting that by then the USA won’t be what they imagined. W#hy is it liberals think just keep talking and sooner or later they’ll believe it and have you ever noticed libeerals do not discuss – they YELL. Watch tv and tell me they don’t! This year go for broke and dish back to liberals what they dish out and don’t be weak. Their counting on it! Not that it’s right – but- the only way to get the point across yo them. State what your doing first though to show it is not your way, it’s theirs.
