What He Said

Finally there are a few sane voices regarding the need for a different economic direction! In this clip, Representative Peter DeFazio brings up the obvious:

Yes, Timmy Geithner and Larry Summers DO need to go. I don't think this even begins to remedy the myriad problems with the economy; perhaps this would only be symbolic. After all, for every well-known name like either Geithner or Summers, there is a long list of other people, some of whom probably having even more influence than either of these fools. Clearly, as the daily Dow Jones average shows when compared with the unemployment figures, these people work for Wall Street, not Main Street.

That said, their removal will have little effect on the continual slide of the middle class in this country toward its seemingly inevitable demise. I sincerely hope that some cataclysmic event isn't necessary to produce some fundamental realignment in the United States. The prospects, however, do not look good....
