Not again, Larry!!

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 23, 2009 5:04 PM |

I wish I were joking, but Larry Summers, Director of the National Economic Council, has been caught yet again sleeping on the job. Today Summers was caught on camera taking 40 winks during a meeting with President Obama and credit card officials:

If you remember, Summers was caught nodding off during a fiscal sustainability summit held back in February at the White House. From my piece on February 25, 2009: Does Larry Need a Stimulus? . . .

The Financial Times reported that Larry Summers fell asleep on the podium this past Monday at the Financial Responsibility Summit:

“Although Lawrence Summers, head of the National Economic Council, fell asleep on the podium, most attendees, including Republicans, appear to have appreciated the exercise.”

While I know that some of this material can be a little dry, one would hope it is not putting Larry to sleep!!

I’ll admit I fell asleep once or twice in science class, but I always made sure I was in the back of the room. Perhaps Larry already felt comfortable with the material.

You can’t make this stuff up…I only hope he passes the test!!
