    We will be much better for the departure of "Asleep at the Wheel" Timmy.

    The FED, Freddie, and Fanny were not the only players that caused this mess. Most of it was caused by over leveraging.

    You are correct; it was the tax cuts that were carried out in a Keynesian way (which was the largest aspect of the stimulus).
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Re: Geithner set to jump ship

    this is very difficult for the white house, what with debt ceiling talks coming to crunch

    but more, to replace the tax cheat he put in charge at irs obama has to go thru SENATE

    confirmation hearings will become a colonoscopy of our cancer stricken economy

    who's gonna be picked to replace geithner?

    anyone who shares the tax and spend priorities put forth most recently by this vacillating president will NOT get thru hurryup harry's house

    someone like dimon from jpmorgan?

    mayor bloomberg from ny?

    mr immelt, the jobs czar who pays no taxes and ships profits overseas?

    these are the men most mentioned by the msm's

    fyi
