Christine Romer on Credit Downgrade: The U.S. is “pretty da** fu**ed” – Obama Advisor Curses, Says She Has Been Hanging Around Geithner Too Long

Former Obama Economic Adviser, Christine Romer chatted with Bill Maher about the Standard and Poor’s U.S. credit downgrade.

Team Fail: Larry Summers, Peter Orszag, Tim Geithner, Christine Romer (Geithner is the lone ranger still in the Obama administration. His resignation is loudly called for)


The U.S. is “pretty darn fu**ed,” said Christine Romer, President Obama’s first chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

Appearing on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”, Ms. Romer was asked about what the downgrade means for the U.S. economy. Romer’s profanity followed a clip for a segment on Maher’s show called “How F***** Are We?”

An amused Maher paused to let the audience enjoy what Romer had said. After all, it’s not everyday that a professor and former White House staffer swears on live cable.

“I’ve been hanging around Tim Geithner too long,” Romer added, obviously trying to milk the moment.

  • Yes, and her policies helped bring us here. Romer, Geithner, and Larry Summers are all primarily responsible and all are pawns of the Teleprompter-in-Chief. Maybe next week they can have all four of them on the show to laugh about how they presided over the collapse of the greatest economic powerhouse in the history of the world. Disgusting, all of them.

  • S & P say they will downgrade us again if we don’t get our act in order. It is not the debt ceiling but the spending spree that got us into this trouble.
