Obama: Fire Geithner

If Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is such a strong, competent, believable spokesman that gives everyone confidence in him, his economic plan, and the state of the U.S. economy: why is nobody believing?

Why is it that President Obama, Paul Volker, Larry Summer and others had to push the media “we are strong and confident line” these last few days.

How come, if Geither is so good, after he urged the G20 to “strong action” yesterday, in London mind you, a report of that speech couldn’t be found on page one of the London Times or the Telegraph?

Because Geither is not strong.  He’s worthless as a spokesman and advocate and that may make him worthless as a Treasury Secretary.

He needs a speech coach, a speech writer, a media advisor and body language lessons.

 

But maybe it is too late for all the remaking of Geithner.  Maybe we knew with his TurboTax lie that we were all in for trouble.

Geithner is apparently spineless, the Senate is mostly spineless for confirming him based upon false promises and lies; so who can we look to, in this time of “crisis,” with certainty and strength?

In times of economic weakness, the president’s own Treasury Secretary is weak.

How much more slack does Barack Obama wish to give this guy and for what?

Obama can’t demonstrate strengh himself until he realizes what strength is and takes some strong action on something: and soon.

Even Joke Biden is doing better than Geithner….

Even Joe Biden, who has never been wrong on anything before, said a recent uptick in the stock markets is a result of the “Obama factor.”
