Axelrod on Obama's 2012 closing strategy

Senior Obama Campaign Adviser David Axelrod says the Obama campaign is ahead in the polls because of their policies and not mistakes made by the Romney campaign.

"We're ahead, Candy, because the American people believe that this president has in his mind and in his heart the middle class and how to rebuild an economy that works for the middle class in this country, and that is fundamental in what they're looking for."

Axelrod defends Ambassador Rice

Senior Obama Campaign Adviser David Axelrod defended U.S. Ambassador to the U.N Susan Rice's initial reaction to the attacks against the U.S. embassy in Libya.

"I was kind of shocked to see Representative King attack Ambassador Rice for what she said last Sunday here and elsewhere, because she was acting on the intelligence that was given to her by the intelligence community. To say she should resign - she is one of the most remarkable, splendid public servants we have. That's thoroughly irresponsible."

This Sunday...

Romney looks to gain traction and some message control with his swing state bus tour and the rollout of his Vice Presidential pick. One of those contenders, Senator John Thune will join us live from his home state of South Dakota.

It’s the dog days of august, but you wouldn’t know it if you live in a swing state and own a t-v. The campaigns, parties and outside advocacy groups have pummeled voters to the tune 10,483 ads so far this month. Can it get any nastier? We’ll ask Senior Advisers to both campaigns – David Axelrod and Ed Gillespie.

And with Romney-watch in full gear, we look at what his v-p pick says about the state of the campaign with our political panel.

Watch Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.
