Really?

Appearing on Fox News Sunday this morning, President Obama’s senior adviser David Axelrod told host Chris Wallace that he believes Americans are better off today than they were four years ago.

“Can you honestly say that Americans better off today than they were four years ago?” Wallace pointedly asked Axelrod.

“I can say that we’re in a better position than we were four years ago in our economy, in the sense that when this president took office, we were losing 800,000 jobs a month,” Axelrod responded. “And the quarter before he took office was the worst since the Great Depression and we are in a different place.”
