    ....and I see why Obama likes him.
    Because he is just like him. He has absolutely zero experience in economics in practice, only in theory. Never ran a company, never presided over a board of any corporations. Never balanced a spreadsheet.

    did you also happen to notice Lew is Obama's Chief of Staff ... he also wrote the Sequester the Republicans now want nothing to do with.

    there is probably no other human being on earth the Congressional Republicans would least like to have as Treasury Secretary than Jack Lew.

    :doubt:
    yeah...a good thing like having a Texas governor run a war right?
    Yeah - it is always a good idea to have someone with no practical experience in charge.

    For those of you Nutter's who are always going on about the Fed, Lew ought to be your knight in shining armor as he will be first Secretary of the Treasury not affiliated with the Federal Reserve in a long, long time. What that might signal is open to speculation, but the possibilities are limitless.

    Moreover, Lew is a practicing Jew and has wide connections in the American Jewish community and in Israel. For those you Nutter's who think Obama is anti-Israel, if not downright anti-Semitic, Lew is the guy who can strengthen relations between Israel and the United States and can serve as a go-between from Obama to Netanyahu.

    Sounds about par for the course for a guy with no experience, sticking his Treasury Dept.'s nose where that of the State Dept. belongs.

    So...when Geithner was nominated, the right blew up because he came from the very industry he would be tasked to regulate. In other words, his experience counted against him.

    Now, when Obama nominates a guy WITHOUT that connection, NOT having experience counts against him.

    Y'all can't have it both ways, can you? Or, is it simply another case of whatever Obama does MUST be wrong to the right?

    Affiliated with CitiGoup instead, that's so much better right? Also check out the $950,000 bonus he got! You guys HATE bonuses right? Except when Liberal Democrats receive them of course!

    Plus, Jack Lew was at OMB when Clinton Deregulated Wall Street which as even TM knows, is the reason for the Banking Crisis.

    Jacob Lew, Obama Nominee And Former Citigroup Executive, Doesn't Believe Deregulation Led To Financial Crisis

    Yeah that's why Obama apointed Lew as Ambassador to Israel. Oh wait, no he didn't!

    You've been huffing too much of that "Hopium" lately old man.

    No...the right "blew up" because he is an incompetent tax cheat.
