It's good to see someone thinking clearly, and that someone is certainly not Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner who wants to dump more Euro risk on the backs of European taxpayers, especially German taxpayers.

Geithner has sold our country down the drain to protect Citi and Goldman Sachs.
clear majorities of germans, any way you slice it, don’t want to pay for greece.
nor do they want to print money as geithner tells them to do.

Well, naturally the Germans are tired of paying for Greece. But do they think that the U.S. has a greater obligation to pay?
It’s their EU, not ours. If they want to keep that idiot organization, then they’d better pay for it. Why the hell should WE pay for it?

Turbo-Tax Timmy gets his come-uppance.
Pore Tiny Timmy TurboTax - first he flits off to China and tells the Chicoms not to worry about the US dollar - and they laugh - right in his face. And now he has flitted off to Germany and demanded that the Germans " grab money with our hands to stabilize the banks and expand the EFSF unconditionally". TinyTimmyQuote
Hmmm. "grab money with our hands" How, exactly, Timmy- with a printing press? Uh, Timmy, the Germans have had some disastrous experience with printing money - something called the Weimar Republic, you historically illiterate twit. Expand [the Euro bank slush fund 'unconditionally'??? Terrific. Uh, Timmy, does your use of such wild language in reference to a moderately serious situation mostly affecting Europeon banks suggest that some of your Wall Street puppeteers have exposure in certain 'troubled' countries' junk bonds? Why else would you be making such a complete fool of yourself for all to see?

Turbo Tax Timmy not only rates a single digit salute, but several mighty kicks in his behind. As somebody who's supposed to be a financial whiz-kid, I'll bet he hasn't reconciled his check book with his bank statement in decades.
Poor, poor Timmy . . . he's a blockhead in finance . . . but he's got a slew of degrees from prestigious schools.

But do they think that the U.S. has a greater obligation to pay?
No. What makes you insinuate they do?

I’m glad to see Germany going Galt here. They are a hard-working productive people and don’t deserve to carry everyone else’s straw on their back.
