Axelrod: Cancer ad doesn't blame Romney for woman's death

On Meet the Press today, David Gregory pressed David Axelrod on a pro-Obama Super PAC's ad linking Mitt Romney to a woman's death from cancer.

Axelrod responded by denying that the commercial made any such connection.

"I certainly don't think that would be a fair implication, that isn't stated in the ad -- it's not a fair implication."

But, Axelrod continued...

"What is true is that Governor Romney and his partners loaded that company with debt, walked away with millions of dollars and left the workers there bereft without the health care they were promised."

He then quickly pivoted to Mitt Romney's welfare ad, and promptly got steamed with incredulous anger.
