No Thanks to Obummer....
Of course, Obomber obtusely refused to get the message, and wouldn't acknowledge the widespread uproar over the Summers nomination to head the Fed. Either that, or he was simply sticking to his marching orders issued by the international banking cartel. He also didn't care that in doing so, he was bypassing the more qualified female candidate for the job.
I think the Fed should be sent packing altogether, but the majority of wholly-owned politicians in office now will never let that happen. Their allegiance is to the Wall Street and the banksters, as evidenced by who they "bailed out" in 2008. But I digress.
Truthdig reminds us that "by withdrawing his name from consideration, he spares us all the 'acrimony' of pointing out the many problems with his nomination. Besides, he’s bound to make a fortune right where he is, earning speaking and consulting fees from the financial institutions that have benefited so well from his time in government."
Postscript: Here's a couple more pics of Leapin' Larry to remember him by. Buh-bye, Lar!
Sleeping on the job... For gawd's sake, blow yer nose! What are you, six?!
