(Christina) Romer to quit as Obama adviser
MSNBC ^ | August 5, 2010 | Domenico Montanaro

Posted on 08/05/2010 5:34:33 PM PDT by C19fan

National Journal's Victor will have the scoop in tomorrow's edition of the National Journal magazine that Obama economic adviser Christina Romer is quitting the post. It all stems from her feeling -- despite her title as chairwoman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers -- that Larry Summers has more influence with the president.

I wish he'd quit.

Larry Sinclair has more influence with the president than any of these people.

Romer is a light weight in economics.

But definitely a heavy weight otherwise.

.

No longer can we say that the Recession isn't over until the fat lady spins.

The only competent person on Obama’s economic team or in his entire administration, for that matter, is Paul Volcker. Of course, he is the one listened to the least.

When she cleans out her office, someone remind her to take her box of Pampers™ and her binkie.

Didn’t Christina Romer do research that showed that FDR’s policies prolonged the depression? She’s having to support the Keyensian line when she knows it isn’t right. She should’ve resigned long ago.

She is returning to....... Berkly to “teach”.

LMAO!

A teaching institution whose runaway costs far out pace inflation in a failed economic State.

She should try out as froward for the Lakers

She just might get that job too.

I have no idea who the guy with his arms folded is, but I have a hunch that he’s a whiney, bed betting, arrogant, liberal douchebag. He just has that “I’m a Haavard educated elitist and I know what’s best for you” look!

Oh and I think fatty is leaving because she was caught raiding Manchelle’s secret fudge supply!

I am disturbed by the nature of these posts. Very disappointed in fellow freepers.

She and her husband (also an economist) published a paper
that said tax cuts provide more growth than other government spending.
Larry Kudlow quoted this on his show last week.

She was for tax cuts in a Dem Administration. Tax cuts work according
to her analysis.

I was wondering why Tim Geithner Treasury is suddenly so out publicly
at the Medicare report, writing newspaper columns, etc.

It’s that Romer was AGAINST not extending all the Bush tax cuts.
She’s resigning. And now Timmy has to do the dirty work.
(Larry Summers...who knows what he is up to?)

The guy with folded arms is Peter Ortzag, Obama’s former budget director, who quit his post a few weeks ago. I guess he got tired explaining why a 14 trillion dollar debt and 1.4 trillion dollar annual deficit is good for the country.

Cristina Romer is the worst kind of economist,an opportunist. She may have written a paper as an academic defending tax cuts but from day one with this administration she has been selling Keynesian stimulus and fallen in line calling for eliminating the Bush tax cuts for “the rich”.She has zero credibility as does his entire economics team except Volcker who may as well not be on the team because no one listens to him.
