Top Obama advisor David Axelrod drew flak from Jewish Republicans when, in a Tweet, he invoked Nazi imagery by referring to GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s aggressive PR campaign as a “Mittzkrieg.”The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) issued a statement Monday condemning a Tweet by David Axelrod, President Barack Obama’s chief campaign strategist, who called campaign ads in Illinois a “Mittzkrieg.”

Axelrod’s full Tweet said: “The Mittzkrieg in Illinois isn’t terribly inspiring, so turnout may lag. But the sheer volume probably has been grindingly effective.”

RJC responded quickly, saying that, “It is disturbing to see President Obama’s top campaign advisor casually throw Nazi imagery around in reference to a Republican candidate for President. Holocaust and Nazi imagery are always inappropriate in the political arena.” The organization also called on Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, “to publicly rebuke Axelrod for his language.”
