The Big O gives his economic team the dreaded "vote of confidence"
"I have not made any determinations about personnel," the president said. "Larry Summers and Tim Geithner have done an outstanding job, as have my whole economic team. This is tough, the work that they do. They've been at it for two years. And, you know, they're going to have a whole range of decisions about family that'll factor into this as well."
Ah, yes. "Family." That with which one spends more time.
Summers, Geithner, and Obama have completed the work that Bush and Paulson began: They've orchestrated the largest upward transfer of wealth in world history, and normalized 10% nominal (20% real) disemployment. Well done all, and nothing could have been done without the leadership of the Ds.
So, anyhow, when the midterms are over, why shouldn't Obama kick the can down the road with a little "White House staff shake-up" kabuki, and buy another six months of grinding the 99% down?
