Skip to comments.Obama's Top Economist Quits, One Night Before Having To Spin One More Lousy Jobs Report
Posted on 08/06/2010 10:09:55 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
Obama's top economic advisor, professor Christina Romer, is quitting.
Apparently the decision is her own, and the split is cordial, although not surprisingly she didn't get as much access to the President as she'd hoped.
Of course anyone who thought that any President would be more likely to listen to an academic, rather than a political handler (like Rahm) was always doomed to be mistaken.

Rats deserting the sinking Ship of State..............
Yeah the giggling idiot from BERKELEY.
The Morons are trying to run on raising taxes. They say that keeping tax rates as they are is a tax cut. THis is a clear case of insanity. They are Koo Koo.
Put under the next bus out of town?
I highly suspect that their wealthy donors have been quietly telling them to back off.............or else.......
“Professors” is a dead giveaway code speak for overpaid fool with no want of real responsibility. Odumbos next advisers will probably be cast in the mold of Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright as the American Left tries to recreate the utopia known as Jonestown.
Here’s what a big nitwit is Christina Romer:
From Bloomberg News from yesterday, and I quote the article:
“Christina Romer, who chairs the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, said the US needs stronger job growth to lower the nation’s unemployment rate.”
This is positively insipid.
Who recommended her for the job? Joy Behar?
You know, Christina Romer was one of the grown-ups in the White House. Even though they trotted her out weekly to spin things their way.
She and her husband are both professional economists. Do a Google or Yahoo search on some of their work and you’ll find they aren’t as “out there” as the rest of this bunch.
Orszag was the other grown-up in this White House. He’s not as “out there” as the rest of them, either.
Translation = the adults have left the building. I suspect neither wants their fingerprints on this train wreck once TSHTF.
Might be time to buy essentials now at reasonable prices, in case you need them later when they might cost more.
Do you think people are stupid enough to believe that keeping tax rates the same is a tax cut?
Christina Romer needs to stay in academia. She’s got the theory thing down real good... application wise.. not so much.
The ones that voted for obama are.
Wasn’t she the nitwit who suggested the Feds take over our 401Ks?
Amazing. They are also saying that keeping the tax rates as they are is spending money. The logic escapes me. I need to be re-educated in todays public schools to learn this new math. It does not work like the math I learned.
If they vote democrat, yes.......................
Soooo, all we need is tons of new green jobs, right?
Three world leaders have a real dilemma.
Saddam has 1000 body guards. He knows one of them is a CIA agent. But he doesn't know which one.
Mitterand of France has 1000 mistresses. He knows one of them has AIDS. But he doesn't know which one.
Gorbachev is trying to keep the Russian economy from collapsing. He has 1000 economists on staff. One of them is intelligent. But he doesn't know which one.
I think Zer0 just had the one identified!
Generally speaking, when a top level aide leaves an administration it is because they are not applying her theories.
I highly suspect she was there only to provide come cover for this administration and the real "economic" decisions are being made by others - probably outside the administration altogether.
Expect an expose' in a couple years.
And I'm sure she also would say we need more rain to avoid droughts, and now that the oil well is capped there should be less oil leaking into the gulf, and of course if we produced more goods and services that would be just what we need to increase GDP.
Truly brilliant analysis, Christina. It's no wonder we're doing so well with geniuses like you advising Obama.
“Those who can’t do, teach” comes to mind.
Yep, by losing in influence at the WH she gained by getting out the sooner.
As much of an “economist” ...as Kagan is a “judge”...as he is a “president”....talk about a ship of fools!!!
Whatever her resumé is, she horribly misjudged her employer’s intentions if she thought he was committed to a healthy economy based on capitalism.
Maybe she could have gotten more access to El Presidente if she took up GOLF...???
From the pictures and news clips I have seen of her, she probably left to go root for truffles.
“Might be time to buy essentials now at reasonable prices, in case you need them later when they might cost more.”
Been doing that since before the 2008 elections. Every time a container is empty - get it from the stash, buy 1 to replace, and 1 or 2 for the extra pantry. If it is a really good special buy 4-10 extra. Now up to about 6 months of all items(more than that for bare necessities).
She always reminded me of a giggling, naive teenager, who looked like ____________.(she did not look like a teenager, but best not to fill in the blank).
Spot on. The grown-ups are leaving the party.
I think we’re now in for a season of truly silly policy analysis and proposals from the idealistic children who will be brought in or promoted to take their places.
Yes, I thought I recalled seeing that she used to write and say quite sensible things . . . before she went to work for Obama!
