The only likeable person on Obama’s econ team calls it quits: Miser Bros. Summers & Geithner push out Christy Romer
Gee, now we will be forced to hear the abysmal jobs numbers spun without the cheerful manner that was part of Romer’s disposition.
Jesse’sCafeAmericain has the round-up on the departure:
Christina Romer is a fine economist, but she frankly does not have the skillset to deal with an accomplished Tidal Basin pond snakes like Larry Summers and his sidekick Tim Geithner.
She is said to have left at her own request. It is nice to see a principled resignation once in a while. Good for her. I hope that is the case. In addition to pushing for more stimulus, I had also heard that Romer was promoting Elizabeth Warren as the head of the new Financial Consumer Protection Agency, a move that is adamantly opposed by Timmy and Larry, the Rubin twins….
I mean Geithner’s profile is pretty easily identifiable..the BEST sign of the early hagiography attempts on Team O was that idiocy proclaiming GEITHNER one of the most beautiful people…

Excuse me, but is there any way I can get off of “As$clown Express” Airways created by the Grand As$clown himself, BHO?
