Even I find that suggestion funny
I think Obama will pick Jack Lew, the guy who worked at Citi ZOMBI Bank, the bank that screwed Americans left and right – The guy who borrowed $46 billion and lost it. The guy who currently works with Geithner at the US treasury and continues to bailout his pals on Wall Street. The guy who was against appointing Liz Warren as Special Adviser for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. That’s who I think Obama will pick.

Corzine for Treasury Secretary!
Why bothering hiring Krugman when you could easily write a Krugbot :
Obama: “what should be do about the economy?” Krugbot: “borrow and spend!”
Obama: “unemployment?” Krugbot: “borrow and spend!”
Obama: “deficits?” Krugbot: “borrow and spend!”
Obama: “inflation?” Krugbot: “borrow and spend!”
Obama: “trade?” Krugbot: “borrow and spend!”
I vote for Bernie Madoff, he already has the runs on the board and is apparently a really nice guy. Who better to a run a large Ponzi scheme?
Madoff might actually lose rich peoples money and we cant have that.
