Larry Summers falls asleep while Obama talks
Washington Times ^ | 4/2309 | John Ward

For that or some other reason, as President Obama spoke to reporters inside the White House Thursday following a meeting with credit card company executives, Summers was photographed clearly asleep at the end of a table in the Roosevelt Room.

Here's a link to a gallery that has some of these images.

Unless zero used a teleprompter, Summers probably got hypnotized, with all the ah’s and ah’s and ah’s

Why do they have an (R) after his name? I thought he worked previously for Clinton? SO shouldn’t it be a (D)? At this gallery - in every photo that comments on him there is an (R) after his name??

OK but I looked at photo #11 - he is the only one in that photo so there is no Left or Right and they have an R after his name - thanks for the clarification.....

Like my father used to say when my mother caught him napping...”I’m not sleeping. I’m just resting my eyes.”

Larry Summers’ claim to fame occurred in 1980 when he claimed that Reagan’s proposed tax cuts would bring about 40% inflation. Yes, this guy is now advising Obama on matters of economics.
