"They discussed what to expect from financial markets today and over the course of this week, how these events would impact the overall economy, and what steps should be taken to address the problems in our financial markets and economy more broadly," she said in a statement

Clearly Obama has chosen four of the smartest, wisest advisers to help on economics. I just hope that we can hold out to January 20th so that they can get to work

SMART INDIVIDUALS LISTEN TO SMART INDIVIDUALS!
AMERICA WE NEED HIGH INTELLECTUAL SKILLS IN THE
WHITE HOUSE!
OBAMA HAS THE GOODS!

SMART INDIVIDUALS WITH GOOD POINTS TYPE IN ALL CAPS AND USE EXCLAMATION POINTS TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE REALIZES HOW SMART THEY ARE!
