Axelrod says voters will judge Obama on actions
WASHINGTON—Senior political adviser David Axelrod says he doesn't think voters will make much of President Barack Obama's remark that the private sector is doing fine.
In his interview Monday, Axelrod said voters will make their judgments based on Obama's actions, not his words.
And he said Obama called the news conference last Thursday specifically to discuss "urgent actions we should take to undergird the economy."
Axelrod said the election will be about who is best suited to lead the country into the future.
