Mr. President - Dr. Elizabeth Warren is the woman to get your economic team moving in the right direction.
Dear Mr. President –
By now, the talking heads in Washington, New York and Boston have chewed to rags the story of Republican candidate Scott Brown’s win of Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat. The reminder that electoral seats belong not to parties, but to the electorate, should be a point well taken. The loss in Massachusetts is not the first time a politician and his/her party have forgotten that there are no “safe” open seats.
I don’t want to talk about Massachusetts and how hilarious I find it for Fox News to be saying “Thank God for Massachusetts”. All politics is local, MA pol Tip O’Neill famously said. It’s also subject to severe and continuing memory loss.
No, what I want to talk about is your Cabinet, Mr. President. Specifically, the presence in the Cabinet of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. I watched Mr. Geithner’s face last week when you made your stern comments about Wall Street. Frankly, he looked like he was in desperate need of a barf bag.
