There were some glitches on the Obama campaign’s conference call with reporters this morning, but senior advisor David Axelrod knew who to blame. After several reporters waiting in line to ask questions were disconnected when the operator tried to patch them in, Mr. Axelrod joked that the GOP was responsible.

“There’s some problem here,” Mr. Axelrod said. “Republicans will stop at nothing.”

The Politicker and others were unable to get our questions through on the call.

Jim Messina, Obama For America’s campaign manager, joked that perhaps reporters were hanging up because he and Mr. Axelrod had eliminated any possible questions by being “so eloquent” on the call. Mr. Axelrod said he preferred his original explanation.
