David Axelrod hearts Jeb Bush, Rick Scott not so much



WTVJ in Miami yesterday covered senior Barack Obama adviser David Axelrod's remarks to the American Business Council (h/t Kevin Cate).

On Jeb Bush: “Jeb Bush I consider a friend, someone I deeply admire. There are a lot of good republicans. None of them are running right now. Many of them are hiding because of this reign of terror in the republican party.”

On Rick Scott: “This is not a time when people are looking for ideologues. They’re looking for problem solvers. And I think there is a broad sentiment that they got an ideologue instead in this governor. And I think the voters will hold him to account for that.”
