On October 27, 2010, President Obama made an appearance on the Daily Show.
In a remark similar to the one President Bush made about Michael Brown, President Obama said, “Larry Summers did a heck of a job…”
To which Jon Stewart interjected, “You don’t want to use that phrase, dude.”
To which President Obama responded, “Pun intended.”
I think President Obama said these lines on purpose. I think he blames Larry Summers for some of the things that happened during his administration. And I think he wanted the world to know it. Perhaps, with Larry Summers gone, the rest of the world might be able to hope that things would improve.
Boy would they be disappointed.
