i get the sense its not rats leaving a sinking ship as much as its obama jettisoning the ire of republicans just in time for the campaign to ramp up.

Read this over on a well known conspiracy site...


"In less than ONE year, FIVE of Obama's top economic advisers have resigned...which begs the question: If we were really in an epic economic recovery, why would the president's economic team be jumping ship?? Would they not want to sick around and take some credit for a historic recovery?

LOL...it's because they KNOW this whole thing is going DOWN IN FLAMES!!!

Here's the list:

NAME: Peter Orszag
TITLE: White House Budget Director
REASON FOR DEPARTURE: Bored of job; spend time with fiancee (LOL)

NAME: Christina Romer
TITLE: Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers
REASON FOR DEPARTURE:Return to teaching.

DATE: September 2010
NAME: Larry Summers
TITLE: Director of the White House National Economic Council
REASON FOR DEPARTURE: Return to Harvard University as a professor.

DATE: January 2011
NAME: Paul Volcker
TITLE: Head of the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board

DATE: June 2011
NAME: Austan Goolsbee
TITLE: Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers
REASON FOR DEPARTURE:Returning to his tenured job as economics professor at the University of Chicago

What we are witnessing is a game of musical chairs...but in this case NO ONE wants to have a seat on Obama's economic team during the largest financial collapse in world history.

Also note this is ONLY his economic team!! Does not include other advisers,secretaries, etc such as David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, Robert Gibbs, etc!!!!!!


does make you wonder...

He sucked Bernanke's cock for 2 + years by going along with QE so his resume is now complete.

Timmy can now move on to the big time: A prime spot at the Port Authority bus terminal, 1:00AM to 6:00AM at $25 / blow.

Seriously, who should be the next Secy. Treas.?  One name springs to the top of the list,

Ron Paul

failing that, in the more realistic camp how about

Sheila Bair
Warren Buffett
Steven Rattner (the street fears him)
Tyler Durden

"Seriously, who should be the next Secy. Treas.?"

Sighhh...ok, I'll do it, I'll be the target. But only for a year.

I'll be needing five Miguel Cabellero suits and a few good hand picked men...gawd, the adventure, the mayhem, the soiled GS boardroom chairs ;-)
