Skip to comments.Treasury Secretary Blames Congress for Economy, Excuses Obama
Posted on 04/01/2012 2:50:10 PM PDT by John Semmens
The Obama Administrations Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner upheld his boss mantra that others are to blame for the current sorry state of the economy.
Really, it was the guys who were in office prior to President Obamas ascendance that are responsible, Geithner maintained. If any fingers are to be pointed theres where we should look.
When he was reminded that Obama was a member of Congress during that period, Geithner acknowledged that some may try this ploy to shift blame to him, but the fact is, he was hardly ever present for any of the deliberations or votes in the two years he nominally served as a senator. If youll recall, he spent the bulk of his time campaigning for the presidency. To be fair, you have to admit his hands are clean.

Stinky Harry’s do nothing Senate.
I would suggest that obumber hasn’t really been present in the WH ether. He is an empty suit just doing what his mentors say.
While a cute April Fool’s Day joke, this is so CLOSE to the kind of arguments coming out of the Administration right now that it could be easily mistaken for fact.
Lol. Wonder how they have to say about Obamacare, the stimulus, the GM/Chrysler bailouts, etc. etc. I guess like any thief, he can try to claim that he is innocent but his “fingerprints” are all over them.
Wow. The best fibs are the ones that have a ring of truth to them.
I fell for it!

Timmy boy, what a d-bag. I personally hold him responsible for the mess in the last 4 years especially being a former executive with the Fed and Goldman Sachs. If zero is not re-elected, I will be happy to see him go away !
