The most stinging point made here is that the “President’s statment appears intended to distract public attention from record problems and bonuses on Wall Street, and from his political troubles.” It does appear disingenuous. It comes from far behind the curve, for sure. It’s easy to see that unless Obama changes fundamentally, he’ll be one-term and “the agenda” will be set back very far.

now, i don’t know how well volcker, krugman, and reich would work together; but that could be a dynamite economics team.

obama, are you listening?

we must get goldman sachs out of government!
