Poor Baby President: Axelrod Wonders Whether He Did Obama Favor By Getting Him Elected

One thing is certain: Axelrod didn't do the rest of us any favors . . .  

On today's Morning Joe, after Joe Scarborough empathized at length, in the context of the Syrian situation, about what a lonely job President Obama has, David Axelrod actually had the chutzpah to say "there have been many days where I wonder, gee, I wonder if all of us who helped him get elected did him a favor."

Cue that smash Broadway hit from Team America: World Police!


JOE SCARBOROUGH: Talk to anybody that's been inside the White House like you, and they'll tell you, being President of the United States is the loneliest job in the world . . . And it's especially lonely for a guy who like you said, is President of the United States, in large part because of a war he opposed in 2002.

DAVID AXELROD: Yeah. You know, you never want to say boy, that's a lousy job, because the President of the United States it's an exalted position, you get all these perks and so on, but there have been many days where I wonder, gee, I wonder if all of us who helped him get elected did him a favor. These are such difficult decisions.
