The engine of the economy has been running on worn out valves and the idle has been rough and at full trottle seems like the engine is falling apart. Any idiot should know that.

It's too late. Any good will this guy had with the business community is long gone. Noone takes him or Lew seriously anymore. He'll get his old job back, because there's no accountability in academia.

LOL!!! Berkley East???

God, you are stupid!

You knew Antonin Scalia taught there? Do the names Richard Posner or Frank Easterbrook mean anything to you? Probably not, but they should to the right wing bloggers you struggle to comprehend.

Robert Bork got his undergraduate and law degrees there, and is regarded as a product of the law & economics schools

Did you forget about Milton Friedman? Richard Epstein? Cass Sundstein? Or did you never learn about them to begin with?

Nobody was denied admission for being a Republican; Ronald Reagan hired plenty of faculty & graduates to stall his White House. But if an applicant admitted knowing you? I doubt that helped...

Care to comment on the substance of the point? Just because they let you in as a "legacy" (provided you aren't just making it all up), the world is supposed to be impressed?

Anybody who'd call the U of C "Berkley East" is either ignorant, or an internet troll lying his ass off. All those people I cited studied and/or taught there, in spite of being conservative/Republican. Anybody with a clue about the law school over at least the last 50 years would know better than to blather on like you did.

You, lacking a clue, did what you usually do; made an ass of yourself. Go talk to one of your smart relatives (if there really are any); they can fill you in on reality.
