John Boehner: Obama Should Fire Economic Advisors

House minority leader John Boehner had some advice for Obama: fire his economic advisors.  Of course, there’s little Boehner will be able to do to convince the president that he is right, but it’s still pretty gutsy that he’s come forward and made that remark. He said:

“President Obama should ask for — and accept — the resignations of the remaining members of his economic team, starting with Secretary Geithner and Larry Summers”

It’s no secret that the economy has far from rebounded like Obama promised, and that is the underlying reason that Boehner has made his remarks.

At least Boehner isn’t all-out blaming Obama for everything. While the president has made some lofty promises, he can’t foresee everything and relies on the expertise of his advisors.

Boehner also stated that the voices of small business owners are not being heard, and pointed out that none of Obama’s advisors have ever owned small businesses

Do you agree or disagree with Boehner?
