Courtesy of Naked Capitalism comes the good news that liberal/progressive Dems are catching on that Mr. Timother Geithner is a catspaw of Big Finance. Click HERE for the link to that post, which itself has a link to a video clip of Representative DeFazio of Oregon.
Sometimes the world just has to come to you. While TG is not a goner, his rep keeps declining.
When this blog began late 2008, Tim Geithner was a target because of this ties to Big Finance, with the tax troubles felt at EBR to be a sign of the inner water-carrier coming through.
Meanwhile, Gallup.com reports absolutely miserable polling data re hiring/not hiring and daily elective spending. For most people, it may be that the depression has not really ended. If the economy can't soar with a zero-ish Fed funds rate, that would be a Japan scenario. The real winner given the one-dimensional thinking of the Dems: gold, because then more "stimulus" would be baked in the cake.
