“The choice in this election,” said [President Obama’s chief strategist David] Axelrod, “is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead and an economy that continues down the road we are on.”

One wonders why Axelrod is making the case for former governor Mitt Romney, but I suspect that he has spent so much time in “Blame Bush!” mode that he just slipped and forgot he wasn’t in 2008.

You know, I sometimes wonder if Obama (and by extension Axelrod) really wants to be re-elected. If not re-elected he can always claim he inherited too big a mess from Bush and the legacy for the 1st black president may not end up being overwhelmingly bad. If re-elected, things might get really ugly, in which case his legacy will be total crap.

Which is why I wonder why Romney wants the job. The motivations of everyone else who ran seem understandable, but to me, not his.

Noblesse oblige?
