    Problem is the rightwing whackjob is MAUREEN DOWD at the NY TIMES!

    Uh oh

    So much for the savior-based economy.

    Tim Geithner, the learned and laconic civil servant and financial
    engineer, did not sweep in and infuse our shaky psyches with
    confidence. For starters, the 47-year-old’s voice kept cracking.

    Escorting us over the rickety, foggy bridge from TARP to Son of TARP
    by way of TALF — don’t ask — Geithner did not, as the president said
    when he drew on the wisdom of Fred Astaire, inspire us to pick
    ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over again.

    Yes, even some of the institutional liberals are looking around at the trainwreck-start of this new administration and wondering what is going on. Despite their liberalism, they still love America - and fear we are heading down a disastrous path of self-destruction.

    See that is how I have viewed Obama the last couple weeks. He seems unsure of himself. He's not Jack Kennedy, that's for sure.

    Exactly. That is why he is now being shielded from open questions from the media - he goes from one completely orchestrated appearance to the next as his few unscripted moments with the media have exposed his utter uncertainty.

    Geez, he didn't seem that sure of himself WITH the shielding.

    And you expect some one with his resume to understand international finance exactly why? Or for that matter much beyond the appropriate means of organizing street demonstrations.
