    Attn1 Geithner set to jump ship

    DRUDGE REPORT 2011®

    Not a story posted, but the headline on Drudge, complete with the famous flashing emergency light, is reporting that Tim Geithner is stepping down.

    Good news, but Obama will just replace him with another wannabe.

    Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner has signaled to White House officials that he’s considering leaving the administration after President Barack Obama reaches an agreement with Congress to raise the national debt limit, according to three people familiar with the matter.
    Geithner hasn’t made a final decision and won’t do so until the debt ceiling issue has been resolved, according to one of the people. All spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private discussions.
    The Treasury secretary has said the U.S. risks defaulting on its obligations if Congress doesn’t raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling by Aug. 2. The administration and congressional Republicans are at an impasse in negotiations to raise the limit, which also is tied to efforts to cut the nation’s long- term deficit.
    Moody’s Investors Service said on June 2 it expects to place the U.S. government’s Aaa credit rating under review for a possible downgrade if there’s no progress on the debt limit by mid-July. Fitch Ratings said June 21 it would place the U.S. on a negative rating watch if no action is taken by Aug. 2.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Like other things, I'll believe it when its re-posted on a non highly conservative blog. I say this because the conservative rumor mill surrounding Obama's top admin is full of wishful thinking (Hilary to resign anyone?).

    Edit: And there we have it. LOL

    He may be there a while.

    Geithner is just another in a long line to leave - and frankly, isn't he one of the guys who caused this country's problems in the first place?

    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.

    This isn't a fallacy of Keynesian philosphy, its a philosophy of using taxes to get results you prefer and never repealing the results you don't. Its a fallacy of the entire banking system that we've created. If banks weren't allowed to loan out our money, there would never be a run on banks and never be a need for the federal reserve.
