  •  I knew we were screwed in January 2009, (7+ / 0-)

    when Obama hired on Rahm Emmanuel (from the Clinton administration) to be his Chief of Staff and kept on Bernanke (Bush guy) as Fed chairman, and brought back so many of the Clinton era economic advisers that should have been in disgrace like Lawrence Summers.  But there is no punishment for incompetence in the political insider game.

    Perhaps just because he WAS so much an outsider when he began, Obama ended up absorbing into his administration all the same old party hacks and leeches and incompetents.

    So the diarist has a goddam good point.
