Quote of the Day: Axelrod on why GOP debate lacked real substance

David Axelrod, senior strategist for President Obama’s re-election campaign: “I think if you are an independent voter watching that debate last night, you’d kind of scratch your head and say ‘How can we spend 10 minutes talking about whether we should have created Social Security and not one minute on education?’ ‘How can we spend all this time talking about the inoculation program in Texas and not talk about how we get research development and innovation going in this country?’ There was nothing there. The only thing they seem to agree on is that we ought to roll back Wall Street reforms and give Wall Street the right to write its own rules again, and I don’t think anyone believes that’s the answer to our economic problems.”
