Changing Messengers

 Christina Romer, the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, is resigning according to a report in Hotline on Call.  It is a decision and change that is overdue since she has been unbelievable as a messenger for the failed economic policies of the Obama administration for some time.  I found it painful to watch her defend decisions that she obviously did not believe in interview after interview.  Her own published economic analyses often contradicted the political positions she was taking.  In addition her cheerful demeanor detracted from the seriousness of her message and often appeared forced.  I do not always agree with her economics but respect her academic credentials and wish her well in future endeavors.  In the meantime the public will soon realize that changing messengers will not turn bad economics into good economics.  The only thing that will do that is changing economic policies.
