Senior Obama Advisor Draws Rebuke from Republican Jewish Group
by News Editor
ABC News – A Republican Jewish group is demanding an apology from senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod after he referred to Mitt Romney’s ad campaign in Illinois as “the Mittzkrieg.”
“The Mittzkrieg in Illinois isn’t terribly inspiring, so turnout may lag,” Axelrod said via Twitter referring to the Illinois primary Tuesday. “But the sheer volume probably has been grindingly effective.”
The comment appears to compare Romney’s effort against GOP rival Rick Santorum with the blitzkrieg, a military strategy developed by the Nazis during World War II to bombard the Allies with ground and air forces.
