Between Summers and Geithner, it appears that President Obama has made the exact same mistake that one George W. Bush did: Instead of filling his administration’s most important posts with his own people, he reached back to prior admins (Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc) and loaded up on incompetent retreads.Supposedly Obama is a smart guy, but smart people catch on when what they intend to do doesn't match with what's happening. So we have some choices:
- Obama isn't as smart as people think he is.
- Obama never seriously intended to fix the economy since he is a pawn of Wall Street and is simply doing their bidding.
- Obama would like to fix the economy but his attention has wandered.
