Presidential advisor David Axelrod tells Mike Allen of Politico that the give and take between the President and GOP lawmakers last week was not scripted from the President’s point of view.

“There was not one minute of prep here — I guarantee it. He left here for Baltimore on the helicopter, and we didn’t have any discussion about Q & A. It was thoroughly spontaneous, at least from our end.”

Gee, I’d been shocked if Democrats ever gave a thought to message prep.  I guess they think they’re smart enough to wing it.  You think?  No, I don’t either.
