Life’s Little Ironies

Posted by Phoenix Woman on November 26, 2008

One of the themes I’ve noticed in the lefty part of the blogosphere lately is a tendency to rag on Obama’s economic team, especially Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner. This is being done most especially by those people who never liked Obama – or anyone to the right of Noam Chomsky – very much anyway.

Well, what will happen now that Nouriel Roubini, the favorite economist of the apocalyptic branch of the lefties, has spoken highly of Obama’s team? (So have Paul Krugman, Brad DeLong and Robert Reich, but those guys don’t count as highly with the apocalyptics as does Roubini.)
