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.
- Hillary Clinton made her debut with VP pick Tim Kaine, who dipped into Spanish and spoke on support for immigration reform and gun control.
- The gunman who killed at least 10 people at a Munich, Germany mall on Friday was an 18-year-old "obsessed" with mass shootings, police said.
- ISIS has claimed responsibility for a bombing that killed at least 80 people in Afghanistan Saturday.
