Architect of our economic doom: We’re “pretty darn f-cked”

by editor on August 8, 2011

It’s always nice to see the person who caused your problems laughing at those problems. In this case we refer to Christine Romer, the first chair of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers.

ABC’s Jake Tapper reports the annoying news:

Only hours after Standard & Poor’s downgraded the credit worthiness of the U.S. for the first time in history, a former Obama economic adviser summarized the situation in a colorful way.

The U.S. is “pretty darn fu**ed,” said Christine Romer, President Obama’s first chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

Appearing on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”, Ms. Romer was asked about what the downgrade means for the U.S. economy. Romer’s profanity followed a clip for a segment on Maher’s show called “How Fucked Are We?”

An amused Maher paused to let the audience enjoy what Romer had said. After all, it’s not everyday that a professor and former White House staffer swears on live cable.

Of course, as Rush Limbaugh always says, “Failure is a resume enhancement for liberals.” Romer left the Obama administration to disseminate her left wing lunacy to eager young liberal ears at UC Berkeley.

Here’s Romer back in 2009 telling Fox News’ Chris Wallace that she’s “absolutely confident” her economic policies will work in a year.

Unfortunately, she was wrong is 2009, but right in 2011.

Bill Maher is a pasty-faced troll with as much personality as the latest effort my dog left on the lawn this morning.

BHO’s messiahship only works after complete chaos reigns and divided gov’t fails. Only then will “hope and change” prevail as Premier Obama.

How nice. I never though accused Obama’s croonies of having class and distinction. What is it with the lesbiany looks of certain liberal women?

Your comment is awaiting moderation. Joking right? My language was far more tame than this article’s headline. Unreal.

I didn’t hear BHO’s speech but according to the Daily Caller, he is urging tax hikes. So Romer is right. If that passes for leadership we are indeed

I’m not laughing because this is nothing to laugh about. How about laughing in the face of the millions of unemployed – how about laughing at the out of work father whose job was taken by an illegal alien; how about laughing at the guy whose house was foreclosed; how about laughing at the generation of young people who have never even been able to get a first job out of college?

The assmonkey manchild plays golf and has a birthday party and the liberal establisment yucks it up while Rome burns. But if I am critical of the administration I am a racist and potential domestic terrorist.

That’s exactly right, so what’s your problem?

One of the greatest men of our times. I wish he would run for president. The guy is ridiculously smart. I highly recommend “Dismantling America.”

Btw, Gibsmesum, you racist troll, guess what color he is? BLACK, and damn proud of it.

History will regard this as the Urkel administration. All of those in power standing back and looking at the damage, innocent expressions carefully arranged, saying, “Did I do THAT?!”

If our economy is f*cked then Ms. Romer was one of the f*ckers.

Looks like Ms. Romer should spend less time laughing about the screwed up economy, less time at Crispy Creme and more time in a windowless room with no computer, telephone or other electronic devices….Hmmm a prison cell?

I mean after all. She is one major reason our economy is in the tank, Her, Obungles and Turbo Tax Timmy.

Nothing this administration has done or will do , will help this economy, Obama does not want capitalism to work. It has been quite obvious where he wants this country’s direction to go….and that is straight to Hell along with all the perverts in Washington DC.

With all due respect I strongly disagree. . .this administration will, in fact. . . end.

“Hahahahahahahaha….Look at us, we said F&ck! Hahahahaha, how modern are we? We’re so cool!!Hahahahaha!”

Yup, thats the best you educated and intelligently superior of the masses can do. Use profanity for shock value rather than using a better vocabulary to sound intelligent.

That’s exactly what I was thinking, Baby d. If you want to get a big, rip-roarin’ cheer out of the left, talk about smoking pot &/or say “F**k”…it works every time!

As described in Rand’s “The Fountain Head”. In that book, the “cultural leader” sought to vulgarize society and make crap great out of pure evil. Not far from the media holding d-bags, rap “artists” and coked up actors on a pedestal. Gibsme has his points even if presented in an uncouth manner but I think it goes past that to something bigger.

KimmyQueen

The point is that his points are central and focused on one certain group of people. This “lady” is a white woman and the audience I am sure of it are all if not mostly white and Maher is white. The problem is worldly and it includes all kinds of people.

Maher is a sorry sack of sh*t. As for Romer, everybody working for Barry is just like him…arrogant, crass and clueless.

Maher showing his whitetrash roots IMO. There are some guests that you need to tone the rhetoric down for and this one probably was one of them. I probably would not agree with this woman’s views, but l would certainly not drop the f bomb talking with her. Apparently that was not the case in the trailer park/meth lab where Maher grew up.

We’ve all been pretty well f-cked since the affirmative action Kenyan was elected, primarily by guilty whites who wanted to show how progressive they are. Take note idiots – this IS black affirmative action in action.

How ya liking that hopey-changey thing? Maybe one day you’ll get invited to a hip-hop/rap BBQ.

You really want to know what’s “pretty darn effed”? This dumbass left the Obama regime to go back to teaching at UC Berkley. That’s right, “Big Sexy” went back to UC to teach the next generation of economists who don’t know a damn thing about what makes an economy work. That should scare the crap out of anyone who is paying attention.

WOW! UC Berkley? Doesn’t that make her the worlds second biggest authority on everything, right behind Olivia?

poppajoe:”Doesn’t that make her (Christine Romer) the world’s second biggest authority on everything right behind Olivia?”

I regret to inform you, poppajoe, but you, me and other males on this thread must leave it at once. Under Olivia rules we are not allowed to comment on issues concerning females unless we have a uterus.

Christine Romer doesn’t exactly live up to the meaning of her name “Follower of Christ” with this bit of crudity.

Actually, you know who DID go to UC Berkley & mihgt be an authority on everything?

Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld.

Maybe that’s why he has such a great handle on punching holes in leftist beliefs, & does it in a very funny manner. He has been surrounded by them in their most extreme of environments.
