Axelrod: Geithner's Rescue Plan Rollout 'Bumpy'
In an exclusive video interview with The Post's Lois Romano, David Axelrod -- President Obama's senior adviser -- admitted that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's bank rescue plan had a "bumpy" rollout.
"Well, I think it was a bumpy rollout because Wall Street was hoping for a complete answer to some really complex and expensive problems, and what Secretary Geithner laid out didn't meet those expectations, but he laid out a strategy that we think is going to work," Axelrod said in the interview, which can be seen here. "In the coming weeks, he'll lay out tactics to support that strategy, and people will know exactly what's expected of them and what our role will be as a government."
The interview is the first in a new Post series called "Voices of Power."
