    He withdrew his name from the Fed position! Thank God!

    Summers is one of our greatest economic advisers.


    He convinced Clinton to push through the complete repeal of the Glass-(Steagall) ceiling that made it illegal for banks to lie to borrowers and make sub-prime loans (with teaser rates in bold print and the real rate given by a complex formula that no one could understand: Ur=∫c®ewdr), then lie to investors and sell those loans as guaranteed to pay off in full.


    It’s unfortunate that he won’t be put in charge of the entire US economy. He could work wonders!

    That usually is a good start on narrowing down the field of candidates: Eliminate all the Progressive Leftists…

    @Enoki

    Then you should be upset, because we liberals generally despise Summers and are pleased he won’t be running the Fed. But of course, expecting a conservative to be well-informed is a lost cause.

    That explains your analysis of economics, climate change, and everything else. Your opinion is formed by politics, facts be damned.

    No, I just don’t want Progressive Leftists. The Progressive Left has been the single most destructive political segiment on the planet. They have exceeded deaths from war in their push to have Social and Economic Justice along with radical Enviromentialism among other causes they champion.

    Summers caused a great deal of our economic problems. I don’t know why he withdrew, but I am most certainly pleased. The only question is why anyone would have considered him for the post in the first place.

    Correct, except in troll’s case their opinion was formed by right wing radio and fixed news.

    @Michael wme

    Pres. Clinton is also a free marketer and was more than amendable to the final removal of the protections against another Depress. So is it any wonder that we have had another Depression? No it isn’t.

    That’s just it Liberals and others like myself do not approve of Summers but types like you do.

    @Enoki

    You certainly have things backwards and upside down. Larry Summers is the opposite of a “Progressive Leftist.” you have been imbibing your noxious propaganda too much. Addling your brain’s perceptions.

    Gee since Obama is only a leftist in Reich winger propaganda, that explains your confusion. (Which only helps Obama maintain his false left credentials he never proved in the first place nor enunciated.

    TM, the Progressive Left has been.

    Mao killed about 75 million
    Stalin killed about 30 million
    Pol Pot did in about 6 million
    Lenin, Castro, the Jong family…?

    Throw in the economic destruction of nations by Progressives like Mugabe, Chavez, Ortega, et. al. and you have the single most destructive portion of the political spectrum.

    Social and Economic Justice as the Progressive Left uses those terms are social and economic destruction.

    It isn’t that the Right doesn’t have its imbeciles to deal with but they are far fewer than the Progressive Left where they are the overwhelming majority.
