Senior Obama campaign advisor David Axelrod just lost his cool on a group of rowdy Mitt Romney supporters protesting his press conference on the steps of the Massachusetts State House.“You can’t handle the truth, my friends!” Axelrod yelled at the protesters. “If you could handle the truth, then you would quiet down.”
Flanked by a crew of Massachusetts Democrats, Axelrod attempted to open up the Obama campaign’s new front against Romney, attacking his record as governor of Massachusetts.
But this morning’s remarks were drowned out by the protesters, made up mostly of Romney campaign staffers and volunteers, who booed, blew bubbles, and shouted things like “Solyndra!” “Cory Booker!” “Elect Mitt!” and “Go Home!”
“You can shout down speakers my friends, but it’s hard to etch a sketch the truth away,” Axelrod told the chanters. He later called the debacle “the great pageant of democracy.”
