David Axelrod, senior adviser to the Obama campaign, said that Mitt Romney retreated from his own policy positions during the first presidential debate during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation." "I'm saying that he was dishonest," Axelrod concluded.
"Would you go so far as to say he lied?" asked host Bob Schieffer.
"I'm saying he was dishonest in his answers," Axelrod said. "You can characterize that any way you want."
