David Axelrod: I Never Said “Recovery Summer”


On “Fox News Sunday” David Axelrod claims that he never used the phrase “Recovery Summer” in 2010 and attempts to avoid discussing the Obama economy (August 5, 2012).

Wallace: Didn’t this White House badly misjudge this recovery? I remember in 2010, two summers ago, you and Vice President Biden were running around talking about ‘Recovery Summer.’ That was the summer of 2010 and the fact is the White House said if you got the stimulus, the $800 billion that unemployment would stay under 8%. In fact, with the stimulus, unemployment has stayed over 8% for the last 42 months. That’s three and a half years.

Axelrod: Chris, first of all, I wasn’t running around saying anything other than that we were going to have to be persistent. That it took years to get in this mess, it was going to take years to get out —

Axelrod: Well you should show me the tape of me saying that. I’ve been very consistent about the fact that we need to be very persistent in our efforts here.
