    Noam Scheiber: The Memo That Larry Summers Didn

    I remember Douglas Brinkley saying on c-span that shortly after the President entered the WH he had several historian over for dinner and in a private moment, Mr Brinkley asked him what he thought of the country's situation ...Preside*nt Obama told him " It is far worse than we thought. "

    Funny, in 2008 he was the smartest guy like EVVA.... now, he can't differentiate between assholes and buttonholes.

    What dumbed-down world do you exist in where $16,000,000,000,000 debt, $1,500,000,000,000 deficits, 12% real unemployment, $5 gas, inflation and 1.5% growth point anywhere but failure?
