Obama Defends Lawrence Summers From Liberal Attacks

So Summers is getting a bad rap from the "liberal" press? This is the gangster who while working for the World Bank encouraged dumping toxic waste in third world countries. Who, while president of Harvard, stated that women were naturally inferior in math and science. Who, as an economic "advisor" wanted cuts to Medicare and Social Security, and was the point man in deregulation. In the words of author Richard Eskow, Summers "Wasn't wrong as in 'he made a bad call wrong'," "He was wrong as in 'He fought aggressively to deregulate Wall Street, ran roughshod over anyone who raised legitimate concerns, bullied anyone who tried to prevent the tragic events of 2008, took big fees from banking firms and was massively and absolutely wrong over and over'."
