Dumbass Quote of the Day

Saturday, August 6, 2011

“No risk of that, no risk.” – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, in an interview on the Fox Business Network in April, on the risk of U.S. debt being downgraded.

How much longer until President Obama, with approval ratings at 40%, decides to clean house, beginning with Goldman Sachs darling, Timothy Geithner?

I predict Geithner will be gone by December 31st.

    I think it could be sooner than that. His Republican friends will threaten impeachment and he’ll have to act sooner to appease them.

    The party’s over …..
    It’s time to call it day …..

    Yeah, Timmy is toast. That is, if, Obama wants another term.

    I can’t speak for anyone else but between Geithner, the Tea Party, Boehner and Obama, I certainly feel much better about the economy and after last Thursday’s DOW collapse — the one where I lost 40% of my retirement income, I’m ready to line them all up against a wall and pull the trigger.

    It’s with great unhappiness I am forced to say that Obama doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground.

    And this goes for the dozens of former Goldman Sachs men and women he hired to flesh out roles in his administration.

    I guess the old expression is correct: Once an elite, Always an elite.

    Per Huff-Po, Timothy Geithner informed President Barack Obama that he will remain on the job as Treasury secretary, ending speculation he would leave the administration.

    Interesting. I was unaware Geithner could “inform” the president on the future of his tenure? I thought the decision was Obama’s to make?

    Guess Obama really is a pussy, after all.
