Axelrod: Picking Rubio Would Be ‘Insult to Hispanic Community’

by Noah Glyn

David Axelrod, what a mensch.

In an interview with Al Punto (Univisión’s Sunday political show), Axelrod was asked about the political effects of a Marco Rubio V.P. nomination.

He had this to say:

I think it would be an insult to the Hispanic community to choose Senator Rubio if he thinks that that is somehow — if Governor Romney thinks that’s sort of a get-out-of-jail-free card for all of the things and the positions that he’s taken . . . I don’t think Marco Rubio will exonerate Governor Romney for the very, very extreme positions that he’s taken on immigration.
