Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the Earth Institute and a liberal professor at Columbia University, explained this morning on Morning Joe what's wrong with the Clinton Foundation:
"There is a lot of money sloshing around and everything is blurred and it's not good," said Sachs.
"And there is a lot here that is real, whether it's quid pro quos or not, who knows. But the amount of schmoozing involved and crossing lines and one person putting money in a foundation, and then Clinton getting unbelievable amounts for his speeches, and then contracts going one way or another, it's not good.
"Those blurry lines have been seen by many people over the years. This book [Clinton Cash] describes them."
On MSNBC's Morning Joe today, economist Jeffrey Sachs, a self-professed supporter of Barack Obama in 2008, said the president has no plan to save the economy and that "there's never been a plan."
"The quintessential image, sadly, of an administration that I supported and hoped for much better, is the president waiting by the phone to hear what Congress calls to tell him," said Sachs. "It doesn't work in this country that way. It's not a matter that it's August. It's a matter that it's August 2011."
