Henry in the House: Search for Summers' successor drags on

Washington (CNN) – Investment banker Roger Altman quietly slipped into the White House early Friday morning for a second round of meetings with top officials, fueling talk inside the administration that he may be on the inside track to replace Lawrence Summers as President Obama's senior economic adviser.

But I'm starting to pick up growing frustration from Democrats inside and outside the White House that the process to replace Summers is dragging on too long at a time when Obama is supposed to be focused like a laser on creating jobs. That could be hard to do when you don't have a new team in place.

    When in HELL are you media loons, and I mean on 'both sides' going to EVER report 'ANYTHING OBAMA' without a 'negative drag' on it? What do you mean 'when he's SUPPOSED to be focused like a lazer on creating jobs'? That's what he's been doing; trying to get AMERICA back up on its' feet and WORKING! OBAMA can't create jobs! All he CAN do is support companies who can and should hire, with intiatives! REPUBLICANS HAVE SAID STRAIGHT OUT THAT GOVERNMENT CAN'T CREATE JOBS, in the same breath they pounce on OBAMA!
