Axelrod: ‘Americans Believe in Second Chances, but Not Third Chances’

by Ian Tuttle

Appearing on Sunday’s Meet the Press, David Axelrod, senior adviser to the 2012 Obama reelection campaign, says it’s time for Anthony Weiner to go.

“At this point, it’s absurd. He is not going to be the next mayor of New York. He is wasting time and space.”

Can New Yorkers forgive him again?

“Americans believe in second chances, but not third chances. . . . I remember an old song from the 1970s that I loved called ‘How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away?’”
