Accuracy in Media

Christine Romer, the former chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, dropped the f-bomb on live cable TV when asked about what the S&P credit downgrade means for the U.S.

Romer, who was appearing on the HBO program “Real Time with Bill Maher,” told the host that the U.S. is “pretty darn fu**ed.”

That just about sums it up and we can thank her former boss, Obama, and his Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, who said back in April that a downgrade wasn’t going to happen.

For Romer, who gave us a promise of 8% unemployment if the $787 billion stimulus was passed, this may be her attempt at turning over a new leaf and following Nancy Pelosi’s call for more transparency, though this may not be the kind of transparency she was thinking about.
