Obama's economic team exhausted


Recommended Posts

The Hill:

President Obama’s economic team is exhausted, according to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, and that is one of the reasons Christina Romer announced her departure Thursday.

Gibbs dismissed reports that Romer, the outgoing chairwoman of the president's council for economic affairs, was leaving because of conflicts with Larry Summers, the director of the National Economic Council.

The press secretary told The Hill on Friday that Romer and the rest of the economic team have worked the equivalent of six years during the 18 months they’ve been in office, and Romer wanted to return to her normal life.

"These guys have probably packed a term and a half into a half of a term," Gibbs said.

Romer is the second member of the economic team to leave this summer. She follows Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget.

The early days of the administration alone were enough to wear the team down, he said, as they realized the depth of the recession.

"If you think about what we went through in the beginning, nobody knew when we woke up if the whole thing was just going to come crashing down," Gibbs said.

They're tuckered out, poor things. Planning economic disaster can be so tiring...

This is the most laughable news item I've seen in a long, long time. Those poor babies, trying to use stimulus, Obambicare, and a tax hike must be worn out trying to spin this to the LSM.


When they get rid of Geithner and the rest of the tax evaders, I might start to take Obambi's economic team seriously...
