While it might make for good theater, Boehner's call for Obama to fire Geithner and Summers misses the point entirely.

Obama hasn't chosen the economic policies he has because of the advice given to him by Geithner and Summers. It is ridiculous to think that, given different advice, Obama wouldn't have pursued his destructive economic policies.

Geitner and Summers are merely offering Obama advice on HOW to do what we wants to do. At best, bringing in new advisers will result only in Obama wrecking the economy in a different way.
