    Oh, oh. Trouble for Timmy.

    Geithner’s New York Fed Told AIG to Limit Swaps Disclosure - Bloomberg.com

    That doesn't look good.

    Of course Timmy told them that. Timmy is a part of the big finiance machine.
    He represents business not we the people.

    He is of the demented mindset that thinks if it is good for corporations it is good for America.

    What looks even less good is that this information didn't come out during the confirmation process for that damned crook.

    Either that, or it was known but swept under the rug.

    How's that hopey-changey-transparency workin' for y'all?

    We're not talking about BOOOOOOSH! here, jackass.

    BTW, I haven't voted for one single republican (especially not the Shrub) since '94.

    If that is the case, he is demonstrably unqualified for his current position and should be fired forthwith. Write 0bama and tell him so.

    I don't even believe he is morally qualified to be a trustee at whatever prison he should have been sent to for tax evasion. Failing to prosecute this guy was 0bama's second mistake regarding him. Appointing him in the first place was the first.

    I agree, but with the prescedents set by the previous admin it would be hard to get him fired.

    Wow.

    We could be looking at the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States.

    Go ahead make a legal case against former members of Bush admin. Ones that were not in fact forced to resign.

    Didn't 0bama promise a different standard? Is "Bush was worse" going to be your response to everything?

    Not that I buy your attitiued of "Bush was Worse." Were any of Bush's Treasury secretaries tax evaders? The first one quit because of a difference over principle with Bush. Would Geitner even understand that concept?
