Chris Wallace, "FOX News Sunday" host: 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.
David 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 --
Wallace: You talking about 'Recovery Summer' in 2010, sir.
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.

There are tapes and first-hand news reports of of these guys saying exactly what they claim they never said. If the MSM really wanted to make a point, they could probably prooduce WH-distributed talking points giving the media the precise verbage to use about the “Summer of Recovery” that were sent out by Axelrod.
Axelrod is good...I guess that is why he gets the big bucks. Wonderful double talk.
They simply cannot tell the truth. The truth is what they believe at the moment a thought poops into their head.
And you are stoopid or a racist if you don't believe them.
I said Summer of Recovery—NOT Recovery Summer.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
The “ax” is losing it! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
That video is not so good at slapping him down - I’d like to see a montage of axlegrease, biden, 0bama, et al actually using that phrase.
I hope our nominee’s team is on it already.
That “Recovery Summer” Biden was telling everybody there would by 500,000 monthly job gains before Fall...
The MSM, however, will fall in line and send these inconvenient facts right down the memory hole with Alice and the White Rabbit. We have the President, his own self, saying after his inauguration that he had one term to fix this economy. Now he says that Bush'43 is to blame for the worst economic recovery ever so he needs 4 more years.
It is no wonder that they are tap dancing so hard, there is no other way for them to bluff enough votes to keep on with being STUPID. Which also will describe our country if it works!
That “Recovery Summer” Biden was telling everybody there would be 500,000 monthly job gains before Fall...
Winston Smith ... paging Winston Smith ... report to the office immediately. Winston Smith ....
Wallace should have had that tape ready to show if Axelrod denied the charge!
What? You people do not believe what Herr Goebbels...I mean, Mr. Axelrod ... is saying?
If Wallace was a real journalist rather than a hack he would have had the video ready to show.
Chris Wallace: "So, you are saying the sky is blue."
Lazamataz: "I never said that!"
Chris Wallace: "Sir, you just said it!"
Lazamataz: "Well you should show me the tape of me saying that. I've been very consistent about the fact that the sky is grey."
So what's so hard about being David EvilRod?
