    Eventually yes. However the list of 2 1/2 years of the Obama Administration is rather impressive for such a short period of time versus Obama's predecessor.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It is absolutely about Keyensian Economics.

    It doesn't work in the extremes that Progressives attempt claim it does.

    But to the issue of Geithner....these folks are just worn out.

    I could NEVER work in an Admin...I simply will not put in those hours.

    I have too much fun living.

    This isn't so much a story of an administration official leaving (if he does) as it does happen. It's a story of how a guy who helped run the economy in the ditch, couldn't do his own taxes, was as dumb as a knot on a log was allowed to run the Treasury in the first place.

    His tenure will be noted as an absolute failure.

    Re: Geithner set to jump ship

    It's a multifarious list too.

    Burton - Left because his wife was expecting.
    Klain - Left for a fat paycheck in the private sector
    Glen Fine -Probably left because he'd already been there for like 15 years.
    Jim Jones - Left because of a damning book by Bob Woodward.
    Summers - Left because he came under fire for the stimulus
    Gates - I don't really want to know why because the reason will scare the **** out of me.
    Romer - Left because she came under fire for the stimulus.
    Moran - Left to become COS for Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.
    Craig - Left because of Guantanamo
    Desire Rogers - Left because of the White House dinner-crashing scandal
    Blair- Left because of the Christmas Day bombing attempt, because of leaks, and because Leon Panetta hated him.
    Orzag - Left because he couldn't persuade people to take the deficit seriously
    Mcrystal - Left because of a damning Rolling Stone article.
    Emmanuel - Left (probably) because of Israel
    Lippert - Left to rejoin the Navy
    Carter - Left because of "personal reasons"
    Hoh - Left because of disagreement on Afghanistan
    Anita Dunn - Only took the job on an interim basis
    Sergant - Left after Glenn Beck shat on him for allegedly overstepping his boundaries and creating propaganda art.
    Hathaway - Left because of "personal reasons."
    Crawford - Left to work for UMichigan law school.
    Rattner - Left because of a pension scandal.
    Van Jones - Left because Glenn Beck shat on him for signing a 9/11 conspiracy petition
