Romney Camp Responds to Axelrod Comment

Romney campaign spokeswoman Gail Gitcho has provided FOX News with the following response to David Axelrod's comment on "ABC This Week" Sunday:

"First, President Obama was going to run on his record. He said if he didn't turn around the economy in three years, he would be a one term president. When that didn't work, their strategy was to tie Mitt Romney to past policies. Then it was "kill Mitt" and the strategy of personal destruction. Now, they have signaled their new strategy is to go after Wall Street reform. What next? No matter what they come up with, President Obama can't hide from the fact that his record on job creation has been abysmal. More middle class workers have lost their job under President Obama than in any time in modern history - and no amount of spin can cover up that truth."

Axelrod's comment on "ABC This Week":

"I don't think any American is impressed when they see Governor Romney and all the Republican candidates say the first thing they'd do is roll back Wall Street reforms and go back to where we were before the crisis and let Wall Street write its own rules. I think that will be an issue in this campaign."
