Summers (former Treasury Secretary Clinton Repael glass steal act, World Bank Professor Harverd)

Was forced out of the Harvard presidency for formulating a personality cult, displaying supreme arrogance, being dismissive of most everyone and being biased against women.

As Clinton’s Treasury Secretary he rejected warnings from Brooksley Born at that time head of the CFTC regarding the regulation of derivatives.

Summers called her up and scrammed at Ms. Born, who resigned as a result and who has since proved to be correct, and Summers wrong. Summers is one nasty piece of work!

Summers is calling for more economic stimulus packages – essentially give a-ways – that won’t work. They are stalling measures.

After he left, Harvard lent Summers a cool $1 million at a low interest rate. (didn’t know the University was a bank).

Every time Americans watch Summers put on his fireman’s uniform and advise how to put out the economic blaze, they should remember that he helped light the fire. And American taxpayers are getting hosed.
