Obama brings in the next clownTopics: Political News and commentaries
The Obama administration already has the least corporate executive experience of any White House in decades, the economy's going to hell in a hand basket, and who's his choice to replace Christina Romer? Austan Goolsbee, a liberal from Chicago who has spent his entire life in academia and working for Obama. Goolsbee is best known for his work on tax policy and the economics of the internet, and who, when a student at Yale, was in an improv comedy troupe.
Clearly, he'll fit right in with the rest of Obama's economic team.
As Ed Morressey points out, Goolsbie's main qualifications for the job - according to the WH, is that "Goolsbee is a team player who can navigate the White House, and is a skilled television interviewee who can help the president promote his economic message. "He's young and energetic, and good on TV."
Great. Another political crony of Obama, who like Obama has no real experience running anything whatsoever and who knows absolutely nothing about the small businesses that drive our economy.
Did I mention that we're soooo... screwed?.
