It’s gotta be bad when a socialist economist quits a job with the most socialistic president in history. But then, what kind of job does an economist have under a socialist regime?

Probably wants to get a gig before he forgives all that negative home equity because if her stamp is on it she will be even more un-employable. My guess is it is that or she was for keeping the Bush Tax Cuts, and has no comfort level with the clowns she is working with. Even the most ardent socialist realizes what is fertilizing the tomatoes does not smell well......

Not much of a job, kinda like everyone else. But I have to disagree on one point. BO is a communist and not a socialist.

Funny how that is far and away the major keyword of every bit of economic news we get fed from the leftist media. Every freakin downdurn is "unexpected" like these "journalists" never took a single Econ 101 class.

Freakin retard commie media scum.

There's more to it than the story is being told. My guess is that Rat internal polling shows the economy is about to cost the Rats at least the House and Romer is the first sacrificial lamb.

God yes look at the great job she did in Michigan. Romer didn’t move us fast enough to socialism, Granholm is a pro!
Romer and Granholm is the closest thing this administration has to describe a double dip recession. Excellent choice Bammy!

So the chairwoman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers quits after less than 2 years, thats really going to inspire confidence in Obama……..not.

This man is just proving very difficult to work with it seems. No one hangs around long.

Romer has given Obama advice to do certain things.

Obama ignored her advice and, through his appointees, did precisely the opposite. As a result, we still have 10% unemployment and even the corporate side of the recovery is as wobbly as Jell-O.

You’d resign too.

you don’t just walk out of a post like this, there’s been some serious bust up or more probably Obama doesnt take advice from women and we know where that comes from.

From the article:

Romer, chairwoman of the president Council of Economic Advisers, plans to return to California, where her son will be starting high school, the White House said Thursday evening. She also is returning to the University of California, Berkley as an economics professor.

No doubt teaching heads full of mush that the way out of a recession and to economic recovery is to spend lots and lots of money, raise taxes, but still go further into debt.

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 forward for the Lakers

She just might get that job too.

No, he is a socialist. In a true communist regime everyone is exactly equal and there are no leaders. He wants to be an absolute dictator and to control everything from an all powerful central government.
