Axelrod mocks Tea Party response: 'Am I looking at the right camera?'

A top White House adviser gently mocked the Tea Party response to the State of the Union delivered by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Tuesday night.

White House senior adviser David Axelrod joked in a television appearance later in the evening, after Bachmann had delivered her rejoinder to President Obama's speech, about the odd camerawork in much of the Tea Party address.

"Am I looking at the right camera?" Axelrod joked during an appearance on MSNBC, referencing Bachmann's video.

In the Minnesota congresswoman's speech — which followed Rep. Paul Ryan's (Wis.) delivery of the official Republican response — she voiced tough criticisms of Obama and Democrats in Congress.

But during her rebuttal, Bachmann appeared to look into the wrong camera, delivering her speech while looking slightly to her right. (Bachmann was looking at a second camera that belonged to the Tea Party Express, which webcast her remarks, and not the television camera that also captured her remarks.)

Democrats and the White House seemed to revel in recent days in the two different Republican responses to Obama's address.
