Econimic Adivsor Resigns

Looks like Obama can not only keep the economy crumbling around him, even his own staff is crumbling. So this is what, number 5 in his staff to leave in the last year? Guess they don't want to be thrown under the buss as his agenda fails.

I guess they don't want to be part of a tyrannical party that will eventually put into place the final steps of the NWO master plan.

Or your guess, thats fine.

The article says he is leaving because he had already been on leave from his university for 4 years and risked losing tenure if he did not return.

Any excuse is better than none. Do you really think he would man up and tell the REAL reason he was leaving?

So the professor returns from the real world where his policies are total and complete failures and instead of being run out of town the world of academia welcomes him back proving once again that those who can not do, teach.

Who there pal. Just what do you think you are doing? This person went to the trouble to make a thread about how Obama sucks because of things not related to his performance in any way and you come in here with your facts and reality. For shame.

not to sound mean here
but I don't have a clue how
his foundation can be crumbling
when he never had a foundation
to begin with.

Everything about this man's past
has been fabricated since before
he was born. He was doomed
before he was groomed.
make sense ???

You know what they say about
a house built on sinking sand ???

You sir, are correct. Of course other people post how it wasn't his fault, yet he is the one who hired him and also took his advice. Didn't work did it? I think the American people need to do a recall on this fascist bastard and get him out of office.

You're only as strong as your Puppet Master. Then again the person behind the scene, pulling the strings, may have an agenda.

I'm just curious. Did he get two paychecks and went with the one that will continue after this administration?

Or has he seen the writing on the wall. You have to take care of family first, regardless of party affiliation.

There has been a high turnover in this administration, I feel it is a deliberate policy of rotation.So no one becomes familiar with the policy and agenda.Meaning no one can string the pieces together.This is common ruse applied in top corporate positions.

So let me see if I got this straight. Our economy is in the tank and is largely and often unsoundly blamed on Obama.

A key advisor (probably responsible for some of the failed initiatives) is leaving and it is used as an excuse to attack Obama. (Funny how no one trusts the WH but believes the reason provided. I suspect he was allowed to fall on his sword and depart on his own volition to pave the way for fresh ideas.)

How is Obama's world crumbling? I see this as a GOOD thing! Hopefully his replacement will offer more effective policies that will shake the US from our doldrums.

I don't always agree or defend Obama but I swear, if the man walked on water he'd be accused of not knowing how to swim.

Has it? I would think this sort of thing would be quite common. People often come and go from positions.

Can you provide a side-by-side comparison with previous administrations?

ETA:here's an incomplete list from the Bush years:






* Scooter Libby - Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff - resigned after being indicted for Obstruction of Justice, Perjury, and Making False Statements in connection with the investigation stemming from the leak of a CIA operative's identity.

* Lester Crawford - Commissioner, FDA - resigned after only two months on the job. Pled guilty to conflict of interest and making false statements.

* Brian Doyle - Deputy Press Secretary, DHS - Resigned in wake of child sex scandal. Pled no contest to 32 criminal counts.

* Claude Allen - Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy- resigned, pled guilty to shoplifting from Target stores.

* David Safavian - former head of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy at the Office of Management and Budget - convicted of lying to ethics officials and Senate investigators about his ties to lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

* Larry Franklin - intelligence officer, Defense - resigned, pled guilty to passing secrets to Israel.

* Roger Stillwell - desk officer, Interior Department - pled guilty to failing to report Redskins tickets and free dinners from Jack Abramoff.

* Frank Figueroa - senior DHS official, former head of anti-sex-crime Operation Predator - pled no contest to exposing himself to 16-year-old girl in Florida mall. Girl says he fondled himself for ten minutes. Figueroa forfeited his badge, gun, and access to databases; employment status pending internal DHS review.

* Darleen Druyun - senior contracting official, U.S. Air Force - pled guilty and sentenced to nine months in prison for her role in the Boeing tanker lease scandal.

* John Korsmo - chairman, Federal Housing Finance Board - pled guilty last year to lying to the Senate and an inspector general. He swore he had no idea how a list of presidents for FHFB-regulated banks were invited to a fundraiser for his friend's congressional campaign. On the invites, Korsmo was listed as the "Special Guest." Got 18 months of probation.

* P. Trey Sunderland III - chief, Geriatric Psychiatry, Nat'l Institute of Mental Health - admitted to a criminal conflict of interest charge for failing to report $300,000 received from Pfizer, Inc. *As of 12/11/06, still employed by NIMH.

Resigned Due to/Pending/After Investigation

* Carl Truscott - Director, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Bureau - resigned. A report by the Justice Department's Inspector General found that Truscott wasted tens of thousands of dollars on luxuries, wasted millions on whimsical management decisions and violated ethics rules by ordering employees to help his nephew with a high school video project.

* Joseph Schmitz - Inspector General, Defense - Resigned amid charges he personally intervened to protect top political appointees.

* Steven Griles - Deputy Secretary at the Interior Department - resigned, currently under investigation by the Justice Department for his ties to Jack Abramoff.

* Susan Ralston - assistant, White House - resigned amidst revelations that she had accepted thousands of dollars in gifts from Abramoff without compensating him, counter to White House ethics rules.

* Dusty Foggo - Executive Director, CIA - stepped down following accusations of corruption in connection to the Duke Cunningham scandal. Under investigation.

* Janet Rehnquist - Inspector General, Department of Health and Human Services - resigned in the face of allegations she blocked a politically dangerous probe on behalf of the Bush family.

* Ken Tomlinson, Board Chairman, Corporation for Public Broadcasting; member, Broadcasting Board of Governors - resigned at the release of an inspector general report concluding he had broken laws in spending CPB money to hire politically connected consultants to search for "bias" without consulting the board. At BBG, a separate investigation found he was running a "horse racing operation" out of his office, and continuing to hire politically-wired individuals to do "consulting" work for him. He's still there.

* George Deutsch - press aide, NASA - resigned amid allegations he prevented the agency's top climate scientist from speaking publicly about global warming.

* Richard Perle - Chairman, Defense Policy Board - resigned from Pentagon advisory panel amid conflict-of-interest charges.

* James Roche - secretary, U.S. Air Force - resigned in the wake of the Boeing tanker lease scandal, after it was revealed he had rather crudely pushed for Boeing to win a $23 billion contract.

* Marvin Sambur - top contracting executive, U.S. Air Force - Druyun's boss, Sambur resigned in the wake of the scandal. Investigations cleared him of wrongdoing.

* Philip Cooney - chief of staff, White House Council on Environmental Quality - a former oil industry lawyer with no scientific expertise, Cooney resigned after it was revealed he had watered down reports on global warming.

* Thomas Scully - Administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - shortly after Scully resigned in 2003, an investigation by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General found that Scully had pressured the agency's actuary to underestimate the full cost of the Medicare reform bill by approximately $100 billion until after Congress passed the bill into law. Scully was also charged wtih conflict of interest allegations by the U.S. attorney's office for billing CMS for expenses incurred during a job search while he still headed the agency. He settled those charges by paying $9,782.

* Michelle Larson Korsmo - deputy chief of staff, Department of Labor - Helped her husband (see Frank Korsmo, above) with his donor scam. Quietly left her Labor plum job in February 2004, about two weeks before news broke that she and her husband were the targets of a criminal probe.

* David Smith - Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, Interior Department - resigned after shooting a buffalo and accepting its remains as an illegal gratuity. He eventually paid over $3,000 for the dead buffalo, but only after the internal inquiry had commenced.

* Sean Tunis - Chief Medical Officer, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) - Last summer, the State of Maryland suspended his medical license because he faked documentation relating to his medical education. Despite that, he stayed on board for several months at CMS, albeit on administrative leave. He has since been replaced, although it's not clear when because CMS did not announce the switch and has not responded to our calls.
