    No loss. He should have never gotten the job in the first place.

    The Obama administration is sinking faster than the Titanic and everyone is scurrying to the lifeboats before they go under.

    Didn't most of the people fleeing for life boats on the titanic die anyhow?

    Seems Obama and Newt have something in common after all.

    Geithner isn't the problem, his boss is.

    This debt debate is setting up to be the most sensational public political drama since the Clinton administration.

    As some MSNBC host, I don't really watch, recently said Obama was a dick during his last address on the debate discussion.

    Shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement...
    :confused:
    Who would follow Geithner?
    July 1, 2011: Timothy Geithner said Thursday that he plans to stay on as Treasury Secretary for the foreseeable future. But that hasn't stopped speculation about who might take his place later this year.

    WTF are people talking about? Geithner is not leaving. He is just gonna go work for a bank which has strong ties to the government.

    Geithner has been around since Clinton. He ain't going nowhere. He'll still fuck us wherever he roams.
