Hashtag hijacking, live action edition: Romney supporters own Axelrod presser


They really never learn. The Obama campaign can’t keep its hashtags free of dissenting tweets, and today, David Axelrod couldn’t drown out conservative voices at a campaign event.

This Axelrod presser crash is the most insane thing I've ever seen. Romney campaign is run by petulant frat boys.

Axelrod stuttering a bit, appears to be visually uncomfortable with the Romney protestors.

The Romney supporters even blew bubbles:

Romney supporters blow bubbles and slowly chant Soolyndraa at #duelingrallies with Axelrod. No better response but a chant of Aaahmehrseeah!

Axelrod was forced to address the protesters:

Axelrod to Romney protestors:"You can chant down speakers my friend but it's hard to Etch-A-Sketch the truth away."

— Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) May 31, 2012

Axelrod pointing to pro-Romney protestors:"These might be the only Romney voters in the State of Massachusetts."

Some conservatives warned that taking hashtag hijacking to the meatspace could have repercussions:

On these pro-Romney protesters at Axelrod/Dem event in Boston: Team Romney will reap what it sows someday, probably soon.

— Byron York (@ByronYork) May 31, 2012

Axelrod vs. the Romney interns is a bit of escalation that may not result in something the Romney folks will like.

— Ben Domenech (@bdomenech) May 31, 2012

But this time, Romney supporters had the last word:

Romney people chant “na, na, na, na hey hey good bye” as Axe leaves
