Has any other administration had so many officials jump ship as Obama?

Sadly, Obama probably already has someone less qualified and more ethically-challenged already lined up to replace him.

Then we can get a new treasury secretary who can come up with a new phony date.

but but but but, wasn’t timmy the only one smart enough to bring us out of the financial mess? We had to over look his tax evasion because he was so necessary for the job ahead. Ok obamabots, if he wass the smartest one, what now? Who will replace him, a lesser mortal?

“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.”

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-06-30/geithner-said-to-weigh-leaving-treasury-after-debt-ceiling-debate-resolved.html

So he's not leaving?

My thinking has it that Alan Greenspan saw the upcoming financial disaster when he jumped ship - several years ago.

Geitner is/has been closely tied to Obama through family ties. Geitner’s daddy was involved with Obama’s mother in SE Asia. Geitner knows a lot about Obama that ‘birthers’ suspect. I think if Geitner leaves now he is in political quicksand.

Good point. Wonder if timmy pays his own bills. Or balances his own checkbook. Maybe he is on an allowance.

Obama will jump ship before it’s all over...and leave Biden holding the bag. He’s no captain. He’s a chicken. You watch. Unless he can finally be impeached beforehand.

Watch him appoint Katherine Sebelius for the job.

Or Gennifer Granholm (Mich.) Sounds about right for Obama.

I think he’s saved enough out of his recent paychecks to purchase Aruba for $270 billion and turn it into his own private island to retire to.

Not jumping ship - gettin out of Dodge while the gettins good!

Back sign for the economy when the cheerleaders bail on ya.

I think the US is going to default. It might be for only a half hour, but I think it’s gonna happen.

BTW, did he finally manage to fill up his department?

I thought he said he couldn’t do/finish certain analysis reports (testifying in front of Congress) because he didn’t have a full staff.

Maybe now we know where all those ACORN ‘fincancial advisors’ went.

Saved?

Obama's whole cabinet have stolen enough since '09 to buy Tahiti in American money or Gold.

In the fashion of a true psychopath, Obama will choose to not reach an agreement and let the economy crumble with the GOP so Geitner will not leave.

Me thinks the "mob" doesn't have the trust there to accept the money manipulator with a forked tongue.

Is it possible that yesterday's presser had anything to do with this? If I were his economic advisor I'd quit too after that idiotic recital of socialist dogma.

Obama has been ignoring the advice of advisors, committees that he appointed, and even recent appointees to the cabinet who replaced advisors that jumped ship.

This is what narcissists do when they fail so publicly, they quit listening to anyone and everyone.

We have a very sick pup in the White House folks.

“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.”
This is the Golden Moment!
Congress simply refuses the agreement, ties the Geithner Albatross firmly around BO’s neck, and spending decreases after August 2nd.
Nah, might make Boehner cry.
