While I was glad to hear that Larry Summers was planning to resign, I think it's 18 months too late. And I blame Obama for putting in someone so beholden to Wall Street and dismissive of Main Street, and as a result of that appointment (as well as Geithner), Obama's economic policies, in my mind, have been misguided with regard to wide swath of Americans (for example, this idea seems to me a year late). And I still have yet to understand why something like a 21st century WPA or CCC wasn't even considered, even for the Gulf oil spill (where the bill could have been covered by BP, and not the American people). Perhaps it was because people like Summers, who have long forgotten what regular people experience in times of need, surrounded the President.
And let me make this clear. With every complaint I have regarding the Obama administration, I still hold that Obama is 1,000 times better than what McCain would have been on virtually all of the issues that this President has tackled since his inauguration.
