Larry Summers? Whats up with this guy?
Can he at least stay awake for serious meetings with other countries?

1. Maybe he listens with his eyes closed - I listen to music that way sometimes...
...easier to take it all in without so many visual distractions.

(Or maybe he's just rude.)

2. He's so much more important than the rest of us, donchaknow?
At least, he didn't have to listen to any stupid females at this meeting.

4. With a resume like his, it doesn't matter if he sleeps on camera at his job.
(assuming he was sleeping and not just closing his eyes briefly)


As President Clinton's Treasury Secretary, Larry Summers touted the repeal of Glass-Steagall.

The repeal of Glass-Steagall is a big reason why the banks got bailed out with so much money.

But for his wonderful experience as Treasury Secretary, he got to be President of Harvard.

And now President Obama's "director of the White House National Economic Council."

He'll have another great job after this no matter what.

7. It seems to me he's looking at the fellow next to him and his writing. His eyes
aren't close. Sorta like a kid cheating on a test...LOL.

11. He was up all night at a karaoke bar droppin' "E" and singing Foghat.
He doesn't have time for this "round-table" shit.
