Lori Ann LaRocco must-hear interview

This is a must-hear interview from Lori Ann LaRocco, which is surprisingly but now predictably gloomy about our chances for an economic recovery. It is predictable because it's becoming quite obvious our government's stimulus programs are failing to create jobs and stimulate the economy, something us naysayers have been forecasting all along, at the risk of sounding dogmatic. With the benefit of hindsight, we were right.

But why is Ms. LaRocco's candor surprising? She happens to be CNBC's Senior Producer for Squawk Box, so one should expect her to be a cheerleader pandering to our government's propaganda on an economic recovery. Yet, she shares her honest, behind-the-scenes interactions with CEO's pessimistic about the path our country has taken. And in case readers may forget, CEO's of companies do make employment decisions.
