    Top Obama Economic Adviser Goolsbee to Quit ...

    First Romer hardly six months ago. Now, the "new guy".

    WASHINGTON -- Key White House economics adviser Austan D. Goolsbee will resign from his role as chairman of the president's Council of Economic Advisers, it was announced Monday.

    A statement from the White House said Goolsbee will return to his position as an economics professor at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business in the fall term.

    "Prior to his time in the Obama Administration, he was a professor at the University of Chicago for fourteen years," the statement said.

    President Obama described Goolsbee as "one of America's great economic thinkers."

    Obama's economics are a complete disaster. Even his own folks know it. Never seen rats jump ship this fast.

    I do believe Goolsbree was a staunch supporter of the Obama Stimulus plan. With unemployment hovering above 9%, food prices skyrocketing, foreclosures continuing unabated and gasoline heading toward $4.50 a gallon.....is it any wonder why he'd take his chances jumping over board with a life jacket instead of staying on deck of the SS Barack Titanic?

    Nothing in your article indicates that.

    Or that.

    Does it make you feel good to call a Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago a "rat"?

    Hey Peabody ! What struck me is that they started pushing Goolsbee more into the spotlight about 6-8 weeks ago. I remember him doing both Fox with Chris Wallace and Meet The Press on the same Sunday, or consecutive Sundays. While I think he had a tough outing in front of a Congressional Committee a few months back, he seemed competent in the interviews that I saw.

    But he has now said "enough of this". I believe he knows that Plan A did not work ..... and that we are now really screwed.

    does it make you feel good to continually deny reality?

    how embarrassing

    goolsbee, who once won a contest for washington's funniest man, is the guy the white house trotted out JUST LAST WEEKEND on the sunday circuit to try to come up with some kinda answer to the woeful may jobs report which has gone a long way towards PSYCHOLOGIZING this entire depressing economy

    and now, 2 days later, the chairman of the council of economic advisers is OUT

    orszag, summers, romer...

    the security team---mcchrystal, blair, jones...

    do you recall mcchrystal's exit, orszag's nyt op ed?

    meanwhile, on the very friday that the world learned the us economy added, after all we've been thru, a miserable 54000 jobs in may, while barack the slasher attempted a rather hollow victory lap in ohio, all about cars, he failed to MENTION that day's unemployment report

    did you see, by the way, that wapo's factchecker today gave obama 3 pinochios for his "misrepresentations" concerning this rescue of the auto industry

    President Obama's phony accounting on the auto industry bailout - The Fact Checker - The Washington Post

    politico reported yesterday that obama "finally" addressed the new unemployment figure in an interview with a cleveland radio station: "we don’t know yet what happened in terms of this particular blip"

    Obama talks autos, Afghanistan | POLITICO 44

    in a white house press conference this afternoon he said he's "not concerned about a double-dip recession” and that he doesn’t yet know whether friday’s bleak report “is a one-month episode or a longer trend”

    Obama: No worries of a 'double-dip' | POLITICO 44

    are you sure this guy knows what he's doing?

    There's about a trillion dollars in private holdings right now. What creates jobs again?

    Scary part is, after this guy helps destroy US economy he lands a job in a university to teach our kids economics.
