The anti-Larry Summers buzz grow louder ( such as here, here and here.) There is a lot going on here. Liberals blogs have been all over him for pushing the $800 billion stimulus plan instead of the $1.2 trillion option presented to Obama by Christina Romer.  Liberals, including Paul Krugman, thought it was too small then and have double-downed on that opinion since.  (Alas, no high speed rail or modern-day WPA program for them.)
