Where the Hell is Paul Krugman?

As much as I admire the President, it seems that he is not filling key positions with the right people for the job. Paul Krugman should have been Treasury Secretary because Tim Geithner sat as head of the New York Fed since 2003 and did nothing to prevent the crisis. Krugman might be an opinonated SOB, but that makes it more worthwhile to put him in the hot-seat and let him figure this out. Or forever shut him up.

Oh yeah, Krugman also won the Nobel in Economics and wrote the book on Depression Economics in 1999. (updated in 2008) So he must know something about the topic.

Besides it looks like ol’ Tim is up to Hank Paulson’s tricks again by helping his friends on Wall Street and backhanding the U.S. taxpayers.
