Obama Officials, Check Your Talking Points Sheet

Lawrence Summers:
The President’s top economic advisor, Larry Summers, told me that “by spring employment growth will start turning positive.”

During my "This Week" interview, Summers said that “everybody agrees that the recession is over,” but he did not say when the unemployment rate could be expected to drop further.
Another advisor, Christina Romer: Of course the recession is not over.

Look, I would expect Republicans and Democrats would disagree with whether the recession is over, but not two senior advisors to the President to publicly disagree on such a basic claim.

What are we as the American public to believe when it comes the message from our leaders when they can't even agree with themselves.
