    Is Tim Geithner the most politically partisan treasury secretary in history? Certainly sounds like it these days. As the government’s chief financial officer, he’s spending a lot of time firing campaign barbs at various Republicans and their policies.

    Geithner has blasted Mitt Romney by name on several occasions. He frequently attacks Representative Paul Ryan and the GOP budget. And he recently fired a broadside at top-Romney economist Glenn Hubbard, who is presently dean of the Colombia Business School.

    Responding to a Hubbard op-ed in the Wall Street Journal -- which calculated that the president’s spending plans would require an 11 percent tax increase on people earning less than $200,000 a year -- Geithner said, “That’s a completely made-up, remarkably hackish observation for an economist.”

    Hubbard a hack?

    Besides running a highly respected Ivy League business school, he was the chairman of President George W. Bush’s council of economic advisors. He also earned his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard.

    I suggest you take the rest of it in.

    Hubbard does the math and Geithner does not like the outcome...so, in typical Obama fashion, he attacks the messenger.

    I think the GOP should hammer him and others, including Corazine, as hard as they hammer Obama. This administration has done nothing to help America and is a bunch of whinny assed weasels when it comes to answering for their failures.

    What happened to 8% unemployment....Blame Boooosh. What about...does not matter....Blame Booooosh.

    It make you real confident to know that we have such a great group of jerkwads in D.C.. I am worried that if a boatload of 200 grandmothers from Spain rowed up the Patomic and attacked the W.H....we'd surrender. And then they'd spend the next 10 years blaming each other.

    Yes, he's great.

    Only he seems a little short on math skills and long on the mouth.

    'Geithner also told Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) that although the Obama administration doesn’t have a “definitive solution” to the debt crisis'

    More EPIC FAIL, straight from the horse's mouth.

    As if we needed another reason to shat these turds in November.

    Barry appointed a guy who couldn't figure out Turbo Tax to be the Secretary of the Treasury...HELLO!!!!

    It's akin to picking a kid who just flunked Driver's Ed to be behind the wheel of your Indy 500 race entry.

    It wouldn't be so bad if Obama was clueless if he'd just had enough sense to choose some people for his Administration who WEREN'T.

    Another pub lie that the rw's don't bother to check out. They're heads are just a-bobbing up and down so fast, they can't be bothered with FACTS.
