A truly great sub-head
Obama's spending plan is so timid, he must be working on a smarter plan we don't know about.
Those words pretty much sum up the entire O phenomenon, eh wot? Obama's administration has been such a disappointment, he must be working on a smarter administration that we don't know about. Keep the faith, baby.
As noted here
, Tim Geithner is firmly in control of the economy now that Larry Summers is out.
A knowledgeable insider told Cockburn that despite Larry Summers’ reputation as a corporate tool,
“Larry has some idea that there is more to the economy than just the welfare of large banks,” this official suggests. “He did push for a larger stimulus and more jobs programs, for example. Tim just cares about banks.”
That's unsettling. Obama must have a better economic czar waiting in the wings -- one that we don't know about.
