Skip to comments.DeMint: Geithner must go
Posted on 08/07/2011 7:46:25 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) responded to the nation's downgrade at the hands of Standard & Poor's by calling for the resignation of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
Saying "enough is enough," the Tea Party favorite pressured President Obama to remove his top economic official and adopt a new perspective.
"The President should demand that Secretary Geithner resign and immediately replace him with someone who will help Washington focus on balancing our budget and allowing the private sector to create jobs," he said in a statement. "For months he opposed all efforts to reduce the debt in return for a debt ceiling increase. His opposition to serious spending and debt reforms has been reckless and now the American people will pay the price."

Good on DeMint. Let us hope he speaks up about the Child Marxist next year. I’ll wager he does.
That’s a start. I demand that Boner,Canker, and old MacConnell go.
Also Obama, Biden, Holder, Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi, Reid, ...........
DeMint warned us all and held the line no matter how unpopular. I wish he would run for President.
Way too many skeletons.
Geithner and Holder need to go. They will announce some BS story that Geithner is leaving to spend more time with his family and buy more turbo tax investments or something.Someone will be thrown under the bus with gunwalker or it will remain unreported because of all the current headlines. Holder won’t resign easily as he is in on the DNC goal or destroying this country; and they know their time of power is short.
There are already rumors that the progressive Ca. DNC loons want a ‘progressive’ to challenge Obama. They don’t care that a ‘progressive’ will further ruin this country. I am reading reactions of the non political junkie sheeples and they are confused. The WH propaganda with the media may destroy this country if people don’t wake up. Demonizing the tea party and calling them terrorists is their game and we must make sure it does not work.
Geitner is a great example of the liberal plan and proof that affirmative action isn’t race-oriented any more; it’s politics-oriented. Take an incompetent who is always wrong, does more damage than good, and give him job security so he can continue being anti-productive. It’s the Liberal Way...
Does anyone really think that Obama will be fixing any of this or changing things anytime soon? If he goes to a podium tomorrow we will crash again.
Our debt is now 22 TRILLION because of Obama’s latest spending bill.
ObamaCare MUST BE DEFUNDED. The CRAct amendments/Dodd/Frank crap bills that caused the subprime economic collapse must go!No more spending and stop wasting money on progressive ideals, field mice, and Pelosi’s husbans farm. What good has Obama’s czar’s done?Obama needs to resign or we are doomed.
Geithner is a little dweeb, but he’s not the person primarily responsible here. He may not be the greatest Sec. of the Treasury ever, and his advice may be so-so, but he doesn’t drive the over-the-top deficit policies favored by Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al.
While I think it is a good start, I wish that Obama would get the credit, not Geithner! It’s OBAMA’S policies...not Geithner’s or Holder’s or any underling’s.
OBAMAA+ did it.
It doesn’t matter that Geithner is or isn’t a rotten SecTreas, he’s one of Obamas minions and any time we have a chance to get one of them out of the gov’t, we must take it.
Geithner is a little dweeb,...He’s also the son of one Obummer’s mothers bosses. Look it up.
I thank the writer for saying “Tea Party favorite” rather than “Tea Party darling”. For some reason that “darling” phrase is really annnoying and feels demeaning.
Add Fed Chair Bernanke and Obama himself to the list of those who should resign.
how hard could it be to find another tax cheat academic marxist?
