Goolsbee Still Ghoulish for Skull and Bones

Obama's Main Economist Looking Spooky

9.17.2010 By Winsip Custer CPW News Service

The White House's leading economist, 41 year old  Austan Goolsbee, an unlikely player in a Democratic administration that promised to provide much needed regulation of financial markets following the massive Wall Street bailout, has let it be known just why he joined the Obama Administration.  "I like power, ever since the transmission went out on my first car," he said.

Goolsbee, the Robert P Gwinn Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business was born in  Waco in McClennan County, Texas the home of George W Bush's Crawford Ranch. Mr. Goolsbee shares another connection with George W Bush... membership in Yale Skull and Bones Secret Society...the little social club about which GWB said "it's so secret that I can't say anything about it." Add to these connections the fact of Goolsbey's affinity for Milton Friedman, the Nobel Prize winning economist whose economic philosophy provided the backbone for the Reagan and Bush free enterprise push toward deregulation of the market place which led to years of "business gone wild" as evidenced by World Com, Tyco, Enron, the sub-prime mortgage crisis and the S& L debacle before that... "One has to wonder if President Obama played with Brown Recluse Spiders as a child," said John "Speedy" Lento Rio, Economics Advisor for the European Union.

 "He definitely has a way of bringing dissimilar groups together into his circle of advisors," said Rio.  "Obama's think tank is full of cross fermentation, kind of like a micro-brewery and many say more like a septic tank," said Rio from the balcony of his Lisbon townhouse.  "Goolsbee is becoming the bulls eye for critics of America's current economic woes.  Just as without Marx and Lenin,  Trotsky and Guevara there would be no extremes of Socialism, without Friedman to provide the impression of fiscal responsibility inherent in the free market system, there would be no Henry Paulson-bailout of a financial industry that was a house of cards," said the economist.

When asked if for the good of the Obama Administration Mr. Goolsbee would renounce his membership in the social club, Mr. Goolsbee said, "What club?"

"While the framers of the US Constitution were often connected to secret societies like the Free Masons, Skull and Bones was not created until 1833 and its philosophy and inroads into control of America's economic, military and political power structures appears to have significantly shifted the nation's original vision of itself," said Mr. Rio.  "Who wants an expert who eats his brocolli cheese soup out of a skull shaped bowl using a bone shaped spoon?" He asked. "It's not exactly a vision of future economic prosperity is it?" he concluded.
