WOW! A devastating preemptive strike to the already fractured leg of Mitt Romney. Most devastating about this attack was that it was seriously funny and effortless (note Axelrod's relaxed posture and smile). Indeed, this will be a tough hurdle for Romney.
Note too that Axelrod and his mates express the same relaxed condescension towards the field of GOP candidates. I too was smiling but internally I was grimacing.
