Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner praised President Barack Obama on Sunday, saying he was "excellent in crisis."
I had an amazingly good experience with this president in this White House, ...who was willing at that time to put policy ahead of politics in a way that was very important for the country," Geithner said on CBS's "Face the Nation."
He was excellent in crisis. Good at making decisions. Very tough on the rest of us, very tough on all of us to examine all the options. And I never felt I was in a position where they put a political constraint on what we were doing, and definitely never tried to make us more optimistic than we should have been," Geithner added.

I think this means Tommy and his rich friends got every b.s. scheme they asked for. Laughed the whole time not believing their good fortune as to have the Dolt In Chief give them the keys to the kingdom.
So what? A saboteur or would-be tyrant, like Putin, who's cool under pressure doesn't really mean a whole lot, except you've got the added problem of dealing with a cool customer.
Tommy should be Timmy. Auto corrected again!
“who was willing at that time to put policy ahead of politics in a way that was very important for the country”
at that time? was that a Freudian slip?
Didn’t Geitner just last week say (in a new book?) that Obama had told him to LIE to the nation? Now he’s all kissy-face. I wonder if they threatened his mother or something.
They sure know how to circle the wagons on the left side.
My best guess is that more money is being pumped into their foreign bank accounts than they could ever hope to make with a tell-all book.
I’m turning you into the Mods for not putting a large BARF ALERT in the headline :)
What’s the difference between the communist far left and Wall Street? Sorry, it’s a trick question since there isn’t one.
Like two whores discussing the virtue of chastity!
As if more proof Geithner is an idiot is needed.
So the money masters of Wall St. were pleased that their elected sock puppet rubber stamped their dream to offload their losses on the public while pocketing their subsidized profits after crashing the economy without one of them going to jail or being investigated. Go figure.
