  1. re: WashPo and “bringing Bush back”
    A political strategy that reminds voters of when we were proud to be Americans, had lots of jobs, the economy was chugging along and China was just another country is a really bad idea.

    re: Ms Romer
    It seems Ms Romer thought her job was to present the truth to the Prez so that he might have the information he needed to make the proper decisions but was sadly informed that honesty is not good politics. Hence, the decision to resign so that she could “spend more time with her family”.

    1. I agree. I think there’s more to Romer leaving. She worked her whole life in the field and I can’t believe she not longer wants to run the economy.
