President Obama has nominated Princeton University Professor Alan Krueger to be chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisors. Saying he has “nothing but confidence in Alan as he takes on this important role,” Obama described Krueger as one of the nation’s leading economists.
Nonsense! Washington needs to stop listening to these allegedly high-minded academics who have helped get us into this fouled-up economy.
What should we think of someone who helped design “Cash for Clunkers”? Please! Enough with academics from Princeton, Harvard, the University of Chicago, and Yale who have never run a business nor created a single private sector job, It is long past time for us to put a business person in this post, someone who has actually created jobs.
This has got to stop. We must demand the president appoint no more liberal professors to top administration jobs….
