Just imagine if this idea came from a Republican. It would have been the headline in every paper for the next month.
I know this is a waste of time to say this but the Pubbies have a HUGE opportunity to push for a variety of answers. When did Geithner know about this? When did Obama? Why did billions of bailot dough go to pay off international banks that not only had defaulted (French) but also were found guilty and fined (Switzerland's UBS) for purposely hiding 20 billion dollars for 50,000 well-heeled American "taxpayers".
And the real kicker is that UBS admitted their crimes and paid a 780 million dollar fine...via bailout money given to them through AIG.
BTW - Drudge has a headline that Obama will have a primetime news conference tomorrow. I'll be curious to see what Obama's Teleprompter (The O-Prompter as it would be) has to say.
