Axelrod Frustrated on Statehouse Steps

David Axelrod thought he was going to turn the media focus onto Mitt Romney's Massachusetts record with an event on the state house steps in Boston, but in a move reminiscent of George H.W. Bush's sabotage of a Mike Dukakis event on Boston Harbor, he was outflanked by an aggressive Romney campaign.

Obama senior adviser David Axelrod was met with protests from Romney supporters at a press event in Massachusetts today. A frustrated Axelrod, who was shouted down, tells the protesters "they can't handle the truth."

After his brief remarks, Axelrod asked for questions from the press but was met with more banter from Romney protesters with slogans like "where are the jobs?"
