Axelrod on the battle over Bain

On Sunday Senior Obama Campaign Adviser David Axelrod continued to push back against Mitt Romney's record while at Bain Capital.

(CNN) – Mitt Romney's accounts in offshore tax havens would have repercussions in essential governing decisions if he's elected president, a top adviser to President Barack Obama claimed Sunday.

David Axelrod said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Romney's accounts in places like Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda would cloud his decision-making on reforming the tax code, and that the current president had avoided such conflicts of interest in his own investing choices.

Axelrod: Mormonism not "fair game"

David Axelrod weighs in on a GOP plan to reintroduce Rev. Wright into the campaign and says Romney's faith should be off the table.

Axelrod on GSA and Secret Service scandal

David Axelrod weighs in on the GSA and Secret Service scandals.

"I was surprised by it. ... In my experience the Secret Service has been completely professional, so impressive. I always felt like they were willing to do anything to protect the president and the people around the president, and so this was really disappointing.

Obviously we have to get to the bottom of it, but those problems should not denigrate the efforts of so many who do such a good job"

This Sunday...

David Axelrod is the president’s top campaign strategist, and he is our guest this Sunday on State of the Union. I’ll ask him if the Secret Service scandal will distract from the President’s re-election message, and what the latest economic warning signs mean for the President’s chances in November.

We also have an exclusive interview with Florida’s Republican Senator Marco Rubio. We’ll talk about his party’s outreach to the Hispanic community and speculation that he might be Mitt Romney’s pick for Vice President.

Rep. Elijah Cummings will be here to give us the latest developments in the Secret Service prostitution scandal. He’s the ranking democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, and although they’re letting the Secret Service take the lead on the investigation, they DO want answers.

We’ll round out the show with CNN’s Senior Congressional Reporter Dana Bash and Jeff Zeleny of the New York Times.

It promises to be a great show. Tune in Sunday at 9AM & NOON ET.
