The news that financial product and debt junkie or at least as painted as such Larry Summers had as much chance of leading the Fed (Chairman of the Federal Reserve) as John Kerry of winning an award for insight leaves questions about the judgement of the President who proffered him. It’s clear that for reasons of being tough and strong leaders do not communicate outside their circles and hence policy tends to be a pastiche of an idea which has some currency in the real world. Nonetheless Mr Obama and his team appear to have missed the 200 foot high sign above Summers’ head with the word A-V-O-I-D flashing in gaudy Orange.

Of course I am making excuses for President Obama as someone joked the other day Obama and Bush throw babies over a cliff. Democrats call Bush cruel and inhuman and suggest Obama was badly advised. This is the constant refrain from supporters of the ‘Crats and most loathsome Labour fans in the UK about Brown, Miliband, Darling and Balls who bankrupted us.

Just because someone joins ostensibly the most liberal party in their attempt to fulfill their ego does not make them nicer or indeed better people. Quite the opposite they make their career decrying the Conservative agenda then put it into practice – downright dishonest. Thus if the fault is Mr Obama’s wider team who appointed them? Why does he continue to personally back torture and state bullying of whistleblowers? If it’s a Republican we may rest assured the blame is personal.

I like the persona of Nick Clegg (Brown was beyond likable albeit Labour fans pretend) but his actions suggest he is amoral, at best, even if there appears an absence of spite or malice.

The only valid counter or mitigation is these highly educated wall flowers are morons.

Either way I won’t be voting personally for them.
