Axelrod: Dick Morris Is "Delusional"

The Democrat-turned-Fox News figure is predicting a Romney landslide and is claiming Obama's top strategist used work for him.

Morris addresses the Faith and Freedom Coalition in June in Washington, DC.

President Obama's chief strategist, David Axelrod, denied conservative commentator Dick Morris' claim that Axelrod had worked for him in the past and unleashed a stream of mockery on Morris, a former Democrat and aide to President Bill Clinton.

Morris, who has been predicting a landslide victory for Governor Mitt Romney, told Fox News' Megyn Kelly on Monday that Axelrod "used to work for me."

"He was a good employee," Morris said.

Morris was a key architect of Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign, but Axelrod said he'd never worked for the former Democrat.

"He's delusional," Axelrod told BuzzFeed in an e-mail. "He called and asked my advice on Chicago before the [1996] Convention. I never 'worked for him.'"

Axelrod added a jab at the scandal that cost Morris his role with Clinton and included detailed allegations from a prostitute.

"I've had a foot in my mouth plenty of times, but it's always been my own!" Axelrod said.
