Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I honestly don't think it's intentional on Obama's part.  Obama's a law professor.  He's only going to be as good as the people around him, and it's difficult to expect a politician to be able to distinguish between various economists' arguments.  Especially given that, from his perspective (and that of the conventional wisdom), Summers oversaw a period of growing prosperity.

At some point one should expect him to get it, but he got reelected -- so, again, from his perspective, it worked out.

In short, stupid, not evil.  I hope anyway.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
