Holy crap this bullshit just can't be piled up any HIGHER than it is now.
Why is Obama's entire financial staff bailing out? It turns out that tanking the entire economy into the crapper and bringing about a likely double-dip recession is incredibly exhausting.
This is just insane. This administration literally believes they can tell the public that down is up, or anything else and that they will buy it.
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 theyve 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.
Apparently time operates differently in the Obama administration.
Romer was involved in the administrations planning of the $787 billion economic stimulus package. Ever since the legislation was approved by Congress, shes been at the forefront of the administrations effort to sell the product to the public.
Thats been difficult given the fact that the nations unemployment rate soared to 10 percent after the legislations approval. The administration had hoped the jobless rate would top off at 8 percent.
She's been at the forefront of selling Obama's stimulus plan and job numbers for what the administration estimates is 6 years worth of work and Obama is at 41% per Gallup.
I guess it just goes to show that even supposedly extraordinary efforts cannot sell a lie.
She is the second major economics adviser to leave the administration after budget director Peter Orszags departure last month.
No need to have a budget director when the Congress isn't doing any budgeting.
