    I think so...he said the credit rating would not be downgraded. He clearly has no grasp on the situation and by proxy has no place being in such a high position of power. Obama's lapdog has to go.

    He should be behind bars for tax evasion.

    Is this a trick question?

    There is NO question he should be fired.

    It's always wonderful having a leader extoll the virtues of giving through taxation while he evades.

    He should never have been hired in the first place. Now he should be indicted.

    LOL! This is like an episode of The Twilight Zone.

    Geithner certainly never realistically considered that tea party kooks would hold America hostage on the debt ceiling vote while the world looked on in disbelief.

    Geithner warned what was at stake, didn't he? And what was the response from many on the right? It was the equivalent of Bush saying "Bring 'em on" regarding insurgents attacking American troops.

    Even that loon, Michele Bachman, voted against the compromise measure in the House. That begs the question of what she would have done if she was president. Would she actually have vetoed the bill? Where would America be then?

    Everyone from obama down to polosi should be fired, possibly tried for treason for the way they purposefully destroyed our economy with recless spending. They knew when they spent 1.4trillion a year more than we took in it would destroy out country. Politicians need to be held responsible for their actions. When a leader in congress tells the house " you have to pass this bill if you want to see what's in it" should be arrested for corruption.

    Unfortunately, it's not the twilight zone.....it's real. Geithner avoided taxes and said that we were at no risk.
