David Axelrod on Mitt Romney: "He has a sense of entitlement, that he doesn't have to operate under the same rules"

This evening at 9 p.m. "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed former Barack Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod to the program for his inside perspective and candid commentary on recent political developments, as well as the state of the race for the White House.

Currently serving as Senior Strategist for the president's re-election campaign, Axelrod offered his reaction to the divisive issue surrounding Mitt Romney's back tax returns:

"Governor Romney thinks he can operate under a different set of rules, he has a sense of entitlement, that he doesn't have to operate under the same rules that presidential candidates have for decades," says Axelrod, of the man who'll face his candidate in the fall. "Not just disclosure on his tax returns, by the way, but who is raising money for him, his so-called 'bundlers.'"

With the general election a mere 82 days away, the one-time top political adviser to President Bill Clinton also called into question the Republican's ethics and lack of transparency:

"He left office in Massachusetts with the hard drives from his computers, with all his records, because he said he didn't want opposition researchers looking," said Axelrod. "He did the same thing when he left the Olympics. He has a penchant for secrecy and he thinks he can play by a different set of rules. I don't accept his word on what his taxes say."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Axelrod responds to Romney's declaration today about his taxes.

    That was the biggest "milk-toast" interview I have ever seen. It was absolutely nothing more than an opportunity for Axelrod to repeat his script. Where were the challenges to his spin?

      You must be white? Romney is hiding his tax returns for a reason...he claims that the Obama team might use that information to the voter's and that would decide who the taxpayers would vote for. MR. ROMNEY..LET THE TAXES PAYER'S SEE AND DECIDE....NOT YOU!

        Why has Obama sealed all his personal records? If we expect transparency from candidates, shouldn't we expect transparency from both? It's a double standard. Obama can seal anything he wants. He is the first President to seal his records. Have you ever wondered why? We can claim Romney must have something that he doesn't want the public to see. What does Obama have to hide? Fair is fair. They should both be made to lay everything on the table.

    Mr. Morgan,
    Where or where did your guest come from? I am referring to Mr. DSouza.
    His entire take on "Obama's America" is so BIAS and almost NO DOES SOUND like his entire AGENDA is to
    BAD MOUTH OUR PRESIDENT. I do not care how much he (D'Souza) attempts to "INFER" the president's past statements and/or actions.. This man clearly has a PERSONAL AGENDA, he is totally FACT FREE. Ug!

      Morgan is the bias one. He couldn't prove anything was inaccurate that D'Sousa said. He hated it when D'Sousa tried to back up what he was saying. Going to go out and buy his book! Never watch Morgan anyhow but decided to see what the subject was. Didn't take long to remember why I don't watch. Morgan sucks at interviews. One liberal son of a gun. Go back to Britain quit trying to ruin US along with Obama.

      I agree and I want to say to Piers, having D'Souza on your show last night was irresponsible journalism at best and down right dangerous at worst. His inflammatory comments showed him to be a fanatic whose views are based on hate rather than fact. He all but called the President a traitor. Do you realize Piers that such allegations against the President could lead to his being harmed? And what was Penn doing there? He said outright that he is not Pro Obama. Could you not have at least had a democrat present to counter D'Souza's comments?

      You made a feeble attempt to dispute appalling comments such as Pres. Obama hates the British and Pres. Obama wants America to fail but you got nowhere with him and at the end you said, I don't agree with what you say but I like the way you say it. What were you thinking Piers? Is this all about ratings? Disgusting..

    As an Independent minded Republican that is somewhat undecided I do find it disturbing that Piers/CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC are all such Obama backers they should have "Obama for President" bumper stickers on their foreheads.

      I find it amusing (but not a little scary) that conservatives all feel the "lame-stream" media (Palin's phrase) are biased toward liberals, the mainstream media being ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc. Conservatives only trust Fox News as fair and unbiased. So, if someone doesn't agree with a conservative, he calls them names and says they're biased. 🙂

      Mika, I will take you at our word as an “independently-minded-republican” So, please, realize that Fox is not a news organization. A news organization is one that reports “news” to inform people of what is going on. Fox doesn’t do that, Fox purposely and continually provides you with a distorted view. You are not informed if you watch Fox. Although within news organization we can find people that may have leanings towards one side or the other, in general the viewer gets a balanced showing of the issues. A Fox watcher, like you, may feel that Fox and the others provide such a different angle on the political news but that is because Fox has manipulated the information at a shameful degree

  8. Have a brain - unlike P. Morgan

    I tuned in to watch Mr. D'Souza, who I admire and find interesting and intelligent and, unlike Mr. Morgan, rational and objective. Mr. D'Souza gave informed, articulate responses to Mr. Morgan's "challenges" (he doesn't ask "questions"), while the sum total of Mr. Morgan's input was "That's NONSENSE!" WOW. What an intellectual giant...
    Could Mr. Morgan's lack of any recognizable intellect, and his extreme, narrow-minded bias explain the fact that his ratings are currently dwarfed by Rachel Maddow, who's one of the most boring TV hosts on record?

      You are absolutely right. Morgan was the one who came off looking like a fool. You don't have to agree with all off D'Souza's opinions but Morgan's righteous indignation and rude behaviour was typical of CNN's unabashed love affair with Obama. Morgan attempted to dismiss out of hand D'Sousa's opinions on Obama's treatment of Churchill, Israel, and anti-colonialist stance as wacko. Dr. Krauthammer, who even Bill Clinton describes as brilliant, has expressed the same view point. Obama in his own words has professed an affinity to his father's admitted anti-colonialist views.

        So what if Obama has affinities with his father anti-colonial views? weren't the USA founded after an anticolonialist war? wasn't the declaration of Independance made to free the Americans from the Colonial Power? Same happened in the third World in the first half of the 20th century, even India under Gandhi (birthplace of MR D'Souza now an american) resisted the colonial rule ? SO WHAT EXACTLY IS ANTI'AMERICAN HERE? basically you're saying that if we were in the 18th century you would side with the British colonial power against the US? Admit it there is a racist undertone to your statement.

      Vote for a leader who could likely declare economic war on China and military wars with Iran and North Korea. Take the US into its mission of global dominance. Why do you think the US cannot ‘mess’ with China or even Pakistan? These ideologies fit the GOP agenda. Mr. Bush is lucky he can visit selected countries in Africa without protests. Even Britain he is not welcomed. Now ask yourself why Bill Clinton still remains a global leader in pursuit of his own endeavors.
      Clinton can still electrify a crowd. Bush jr. will fade into oblivion. He will be well recognized globally for his wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and the events of 911.

    Re: Mike Stevens' comment about Piers Morgan's "milk toast" interview with Axelrod. Where have you been? Piers Morgan has practically been gushing over one republcan after another "ad nauseum" on his show for the last year and a half! I have been voting in presidential elections for 49 years now and never have I seen our Presidents so demonized. I swear I don't recall even Richard Nixon being this bashed. I have paid close attention to this election for almost 2 years now and I don't see any of President Obama's policies so radical as to create such venal, vitriolic reactions from the right wing. Makes you wonder. Let me see-First African American President? Just so you know. I have cast one Democratic vote in my 49 year voting life and and will vote Democratic again in 2012. I no longer recognize the republican party. It has been taken over by zealots.

    Just a word of advice to Piers - if you are going to give international exposure to nut-cases like the pro gun guy a few weeks ago or the nutcase tonight who thinks Obama wants to deliberately diminish the UAS's stature in the world, then please, please make sure you are able to discredit them on the air. In both cases you Piers, came out a sad second.. and gave those guys credibility on and international forum. I think you should exert more or better judgement than displayed in these two cases.

This is beyond irresponsible journalism. With all the other nut cases out there who hate President Obama, D'Souza's comments just added fuel to the fire. This could not only hurt the President's chances for re-election, it could also lead to his being physically harmed. I am sickened and think I will have to give Pier's show a pass from now on if he is willing to stoop this low in order to up his ratings.

I don't care what political slant a guest has, but as a "journalist" why didnt u challenge him on any of the contentions. This whole tax issue is subterfuge. No laws have been broken, no violation of ethics. Romney has complied with all disclosure requirements. There is only so much time for this election and days spent on nonsense issues such as this demean the character and spirit of the political discourse. You naively play into the spinmasters hand cheapen the debate and come off looking dim-witted and quite frankly stupid.

    There is a saying that "A clear conscience fears no accusation." What is Governor Romney hiding??? Is it not easier for him to release his Tax Returns for the American people to see than going back to "take a look at them" – just to say that he has paid more than 13%? It is a justified presumption that Governor Romney has "something TERRIBLE" to hide in his Tax Returns hence his refusal to release them, even against all dictates of commonsense. Even elementary principle of law supports such a presumption – because he has exclusive access to and/or custody of the information as contained in his Tax Returns. What a man gunning for Presidency. And what he does not seem to realize is that this Tax Returns issue fits into a common narrative about Governor Romney right from when he ran for Governor in Massachusetts, to Senatorial race against Ted Kennedy to when he ran for nomination against John McCain; Ricj Santorum, Gingrich, and now against president Obama.

      When Romney says that he paid more than 13% in taxes, at least a couple of questions arise: The taxes that he has shown have around the same percentage, so, if 13% sounds acceptable to him there must be a reason, other than the percentage, that he doesn’t want to show. When he stated that he has paid 13%, he also said that adding his charity contributions his “actual” taxes were about 30%, then is it the 13% in previous years including charity contributions??

    What about George Soros income tax records? If Romney is following the tax rules, it's totally his business.

    FLASH to the uneducated readers/voters, there is NO RULE that requires anyone to release copies of back tax history. The left is big on privacy. I applaud Romney's decision to tell the Democrats to stick it. I have absolutely no problem with Romney's decision if he and his accountants are following the IRS rules, mostly written when the Democrats controlled Congress over the last 50 years and beyond. These include the special income tax rates for income that is already taxed and taxed again before the final April income tax hit.

      We know there is no law requiring Romney to release his tax returns beyond what he has released. However, his approach to the economic revival and taxes is based on the cutting of services to the middle class while providing tax cuts to the rich because, he says, that will turn into investments that will create jobs and get more income to the government which at some point it will trickle down to us. That is the reason many people want to know whether that concept flies or not with Romney. I know Republicans wish that Romney had invested in the US, instead that Switzerland and the Cayman Islands, because that kind of ruins the point

    There's really something wrong with these republicans and their way of thinking, speeking and communicateing. If you read their posts they don't make any sence on how they respond to someonelses statements. They always respond about something that isn't even being discussed.

    He doesn't want to comply, but will surely ask the American people to follow the rules. Is this who we want to help the working class?

    A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals evaluated by Medicare starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.

    Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates – which refers to patients who return within a month – by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.

    Why isn't MSDNC and CNN not reporting this!

    obamacare is throwing the seniors and middle class under the bus!

    obama wants seniors to die!

      Dear Nobama2012, what a provision like this does is to improve quality of services for seniors by hospitals so that they don't have to come back for additional services. If hospitals provide the right care the first time, you don't have to come back for more, and at the same time discourage hospitals from profiting by providing such services that would cause seniors to go back repeatedly. I hope next time you will sign as: Yesobama2012. He will be good for you and he doesn’t want you to die

        But I don't hold them in the in box. Using SpeedFiler (pbuh) I file as normal once hainvg read and flagged them. I then work my way through the Follow Up' in Outlook as and when I (a) have time and (b) need to. Thus the emails are always there in the right folders with the relevant other emails etc and when I've dealt with it I simply Clear Flag' and the email is already filed with the reply I sent etc.

    There is no recovery. Dont let the numbers fool you... they have been cooked for a long time now. Obama has wrecked the economy and added over 5 trillion to the deficit with nothing to show for it. In the first two years he could have passed any bill he wanted but didnt even think about jobs. His "laser like" focus was on the golf course and lavish vacations while Americans lost their jobs. He is the biggest clown to ever sit in the Presidency... and he is done come November. I just hope there is something left to recover.
