    AIG bonuses new cloud over Treasury boss

    Now Superman Tax Cheat is starting to be treated like Super Tax Cheat Dud.

    Somebody will have to take the fall for President Teleprompter's lacking any economic clarity beyond his "spread the wealth around" mismanagement and manic depressive behavior.

    Analysis: AIG bonuses new cloud over Treasury boss

    WASHINGTON – If not distancing itself from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner...

    Those, of course, are statements... can be a well-worn political signal that the person allegedly enjoying it should start circulating a resume.
    But his future could soon be as murky as the economy's. His short tenure has been shaky at a time when the new president and the Democratic-led Congress are trying to project confidence to the markets and the nation.

    When asked, Democrats issued statements of support for Geithner that ranged from concise to vague...

    Geithner's... failed to pay $34,023 in self-employment taxes...

    ...Obama's stimulus package was widely panned for being short on substance... uncertain. The markets tanked.

    ...this week that Geithner failed to persuade AIG chief executive Edward Liddy to change or cancel plans to pay the bonuses Friday.

    "I don't know if he should resign over this," said Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., the Senate Banking Committee's top Republican.
    C'mon Senator, grow some nads.
    Call it as it is.
    They've gone nutso with Porkulus, and have yet to articulate a Plan.
    Obama lead off the day before Geithner's report to the nation, and he didn't clarify anything.
    It was like the Dem's Iraq Plan. Smarter and Better.
    But what is it?

    We dunno.
    By deduction we learned it was retreat; cut 'n run. SCRAM.

    Here we can't retreat.
    We need leadership.

    WHAT'S THE PLAN PRESIDENT TELEPROMPTER?
    Geithner didn't tell us.
    What's the plan? To get us out of this mess?
    What's the damn plan?
    People want to know.
    Sound familiar?
    What's the plan?

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Getting back the AIG bonuses?... LOL... nice smokescreen.

    The plan is to divert attention away from the fact that the community organizer doesn't know what the **** he is doing.

    His cabinet appointments have been a fiasco. He won by touting that he would change the economy. He changed it alright, for the worse.

    The most important issue facing our country, the economy, and he appoints the imbecile who helped tank an already weak economy. On top of that, he has given Geithner absolutely no help. Or is the prospective help setting land speed records running away from the train wreck created by this administration?

    Obama and his band of fools are too busy talking about Limbaugh, Cheney and Bush to be bothered formulating any type of coherent plan.

    Obama knows his strength, bull****ting. He's a master, he's just going to shuck-n-jive and smile for the cameras, as he signs bill after bill created by Pelosi & Company, pandering to the far left, and throwing away our money as needed to keep those voting blocks happy.

    And to think, we're only two months into this disaster.

    Relevant point; no other explanation for what is happening needed:

    The other FACT is that Obama is not only acting un-Presidential and more like a community organizer with his round tables and rallies, but he is also in perpetual campaign mode. Can we take a President seriously when he has to go on the Tonight Show to share his vision?

    We need leadership right now; and this appears to be something lacking in the current Administration.

    This is why I suggested during the campaign that Obama was a “post turtle.” A “post turtle” is a turtle you find on top of a fence post; he doesn’t know how he got there, he doesn’t know how to get down and surely doesn’t know what to do now that he is on the post.

    It's nice to see Obama having coffee and chating it up with Leno, perhaps they can go ride around in some of Jay's cool cars. That'll appeal to the auto hobbyist crowd.

    I did a little editing to accurately describe what is happening.

    I've never heard that before. I tip my hat.

    I'm sorry, but I have no clue what you're trying to say here. You've mangled the article quotes so badly that it's incomprehensible.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
