Axelrod: Coburn's Impeachment Comment 'Way Out of Bounds'

"He speaks to a kind of virus that's infected our politics that really has to be curbed."

Former White House adviser David Axelrod said comments suggesting President Barack Obama should be impeached by Sen. Tom Coburn are "way out of bounds" and symptomatic of a "virus" infecting politics.

Coburn (R-Okla.) this week told a convention in Oklahoma that an impeachment of Obama could be close. Axelrod on Friday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" called those comments "plainly absurd."
