Arianna Huffington blasted the President’s chief economic advisor Larry Summers, calling him “the wrong man to be heading the president’s economic team.” 

On the “This Week” Roundtable, Huffington went on to say Summers was, “lackadaisical” and that he had “no sense of urgency” in dealing with the economy. 

Republican strategist Ed Gillespie said he thought it was interesting that “Summers accelerated his anticipation for job creation to begin in the spring.  In the past, the White House had been saying the second half of next year.”   

Huffington was dismissive of Summers’ forecasts, calling them “utterly meaningless.”
