Either he is a pathological liar or he is a clueless dolt.. Which one is it? I am terrified of this administration.
He's really not prepared for this or any other job.
Every time I see this idiot babble about the economy, it is just more proof that the wheels have fallen off the Regimes wagon. They have no idea what they are talking about and I feel that they know they are doomed.
Still blaming President Bush for the bad economy.
Understand your terror. I’ve been terrified since the fall of 2008. “For the first time in my adult life, I am afraid of my government.”
He is both. He also is a political hack.
I think you can be both
I think Turbo “Beavis” Geithner is both!
My vote is - Liar!
Where did he work before joining this administration in ruining the country? Wasn’t it Wall Street? Isn’t he a tax cheat? No wonder he wants to raise our taxes, he isn’t going to pay his anyway..........
Hell no...only fools let themselves be inundated by a tsunami of BULLSHIT & LIES!!
Even worse, He’s got the DT’s and he’s jonesing hard for another hit of OPM (Other Peoples Money).
He’s boxed in and he knows it.
Boehner is holding the winning hand.
Wallace saying the Senate “resoundingly” defeated CCB?? What they did was to vote by three to not even consider it.
I email CW this morning...18 minutes of lies......
I emailed CW this morning...18 minutes of lies......
He’s a liar!
What else do you call cheating on your taxes?
I was...I got too enraged when he kept refusing to answer Wallace’s question about spending priorities, and had to leave the room before my head exploded.
Cafe World is so calming.
You should be. King Obama is a communists black Muslim. His Administration is communist to the hilt. The Democratic party resembles communists. If left to continue it will be similar to Nazi Germany in its beginning. Don't water down who these people are. Face it.
Wallace really has a small brain.
Boehner is actually sounding good, in the follow-up.
Sounds like he’s standing firm.
Hitler gave the people a group they could hate. Are today’s conservatives obama’s Jews?
After giving the little worm 3 times to answer, Wallace should have started his next question with - “Since you’ve refused to answer my question 3 times in a row, I’ll move on!”
Can you, or anyone.. dig up the clips from Timmy’s nomination/confirmation..when we were told that he was the ONLY person in the whole country smart enough to handle this crisis..and we thus had to give him a “pass” on the pesky income tax stuff..
All we need now is the follow through on his tough talk. I believe we’re going to see it.
Obama has nothing but fear tactics and class warfare. His laziness and his incompetence - well,
Geitner’s family and Obama’s mother go way back ....working together in the Ford Foundation or something. Fellow travelers.
BHO’s mom worked for Timmy’s father. Why do you think BHO worked so hard to save Timmy’s nominatin in the face of tax cheating? Unlike, Clinton who dropped nominees mired in mud, BHO needed this guy to implement the PROGRAM. Timmy is virtually the only member of the original BHO economic team to remain standing. And people worry about the freemasons? BHO and Timmy share the same secret handshake as Mao, Uncle Joe and Hugo. Like all hardcore commies everywhere they will do anything and say anything to acquire and use absolute power to set up the commie caliphate.
That’s what he is..a little worm. And if I hear their talking points about the balancing the budget on the backs of the middle class and Seniors I am going to go postal. THEY CREATED THIS MESS and refuse to fix it. 2012 can’t come soon enough.
Not just Obambi - all the democrats. And it's been going on for a while. They'd love to load us into those boxcars and send us on our way, after looting our homes.
Here’s what is pissing me off. The R’s say they will not vote for anything that raises taxes and they are called “intransigent” and zealots. Meanwhile, Zero does the exact same thing and says he will not sign anything that is shorter than two years and the R’s are blamed for not sending him what he wants? Both have drawn a line in the sand and the media is blaming the right for both. One thing I learned...if you’re gonna get blamed either way, do what you want. IMHO, they should not approve anything that raises the debt limit and force in instant balanced budget RIGHT NOW.
neither geithner nor obama have allegiance to the u.s.a.
both are products of foreign upbringing and education.
Like you and everyone else we ALL know he is both. That’s the trouble with being a successful liar, it makes a person stupid. Stupid about everything but the current moment’s lie.
Bill Clinton and Barack are both extremely gifted liars. But their “gifts” are wholly different. Clinton has a incredible memory for the details of his own lies, who he said what to, and what the lies were. Also an intense desire to be liked by all in a room, on a individual level, a glad-hander’s memory for faces and a few live details. Thus he was usually able to keep his lies organized and not conflicting, while coming off as a amiable appealing man wanting you to like him.
Nevertheless his lies kept him ignorant. As a measure of that ignorance I’ll point to Haiti. A great opportunity to employ all the skills and wisdoms his life and mighty career have brought him? But what is the his result there? Zero.
Obama? His gifts, as far as I can see, are (1) A glib tongue. Appealing but empty words that sound very reasonable, sensible and masterful. And (2) an rare single mindedness towards reaching his goal.
While he remains on his goal, that being savior of the narcissistic Obama-world, his words over time are entirely consistent. And in 99% of the rest of his words — glib empty words. So we are left with well under 1% of what he says that is a clear statement of fact or policy, made at the time it is made.
THOSE words, however, being inchoate in anything but the moment they are made, are often at odds. They are all over the place. “Jello” to use the House Speaker’s term.
It is almost certain that Obama has made his post elementary school self into not just an ignorant man, but an incredibly ignorant man. But it is exceeding difficult to reach into that level of Obama, so deep a fog of empty words and behavior patterns has he trapped himself in.
I lost count of Geitner’s contradictory statements— frequently within the same sentence. His hands were visibly shaking.
I vote for both, Alex—And add bed-wetter as a kicker.
“Boehner is actually sounding good, in the follow-up.
Sounds like hes standing firm.”
I didn’t watch, but I’m skeptical about Boehner. In the end I expect him to fold.
this is a guy that cant even fill out turbo tax- why would anyone believe him, or the ice cream scooper in chief—
Read a book: “Reckless Endangerment.”
It outlines the starring role that Geithner played in the run up to the financial meltdown. Most of the guys who caused the meltdown are still working for the government, and some even got promotions.
I will when it gets posted to Hulu.
But if you want my honest opinion. Both. He’s got ties to Goldman-Sachs who is in bed with Moody’s. Moody’s is expected to cut the nation’s credit rating if Congress doesn’t pass a debt limit increase before August 2nd.
“Still blaming President Bush for the bad economy.”
And still blaming his version of TurboTax for not paying his taxes for umpteen years.
“Wallace really has a small brain.”
He is his (liberal) father’s son, after all.
Why yes they are, those people who “bitterly cling to religion and guns”.
Isn’t it also special they both have a propaganda “media” to endorse and protect their state sponsored racism, while at the same time demonizing the innocent group to blame for society’s problems?
He wouldn’t answer the questions. All he did was filibuster and demagogue. He is vile and despicable.
