Bush Bootlicker - Head of NEC

From Nouriel Roubini's Global Macroeconomic and Financial Policy Site:

"Now, who do we get to run NEC?, not the smart Glenn Hubbard who was the first Bush CEA head, but rather Allan Hubbard whose illustrious curriculum and qualifications for the job include:

- Major fundraiser for Bush.
- Friend of Dubya since they were classmates at Harvard Business School
- Deputy chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle during the administration of Dubya's father.
- President of privately held E & A Industries, Inc. of Indianapolis, Indiana, which owns several chemical companies, including Car Brite, Inc., a maker of chemicals used to recondition cars.

That says it all. A perfect choice for an administration full of Yes men and cheerleaders in all the top economic posts.

And can we sink any lower than this? After superior intellects such as Rubin, Tyson, Sperling, Lindsey and Friedman, we get Allan Hubbard..."

Even worse, I actually read something a few weeks back about Larry Kudlow for Secretary of Treasury!?! What? No position for Sean Hannity in the new administration?
