Was the Mad Men era a good time for America? The Obama and Romney campaigns appear to disagree.
After a character on the 60’s-set AMC drama criticized Mitt Romney’s father — a high-profile Michigan governor at the time — calling him “a clown,” Obama advisor David Axelrod seized the moment to ding Mitt.
“I think he must watch ‘Mad Men’ and think it’s the evening news. He’s just in time warp,” Axelrod told CBS.
Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom then took the fight to Twitter, where they presented decidedly different recollections of the 60’s.
