    That is where he was before. And to be honest, I do not think he bought into all of Obama's crap. He could no longer toe the line, so he is quitting.

    Like I said, a "rat jumping the ship". Figure of speech for the libs with panties all in a wedgie.

    Obama didn't destroy the economy. Go study some economics.

    Presidents cannot create or destroy private sector jobs.

    Edit

    If tax cuts create jobs because they put money back into people's hands, than so should stimulus spending since the end result is the same.

    Obama's economics are a complete disaster. Even his own folks know it. Never seen rats jump ship this fast.
    He's leaving because he doesn't want to lose tenure.





    Austan Goolsbee, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, plans to return to teaching economics at the University of Chicago this fall, the White House announced Monday night.

    Goolsbee has been on leave for four years from the university’s Booth School of Business and could have lost his tenured position at Chicago, where he was a professor for 14 years before joining the administration, if he did not return, an official said.

    He has made more progress to that end in less than three years than any 10 presidents combined. Maybe 12.

    "Go study .." .... blah ... blah ... blah

    You have no idea. Let me guess, you think tax cuts are a panacea and Bush did nothing to destroy the economy. What about the FED? How about consolidation? Finical sector?

    For as we know, being the lead economic advisor to the President of the US doesn't count for ****.
