Posted on 08/07/2011 12:08:36 PM PDT by truthandlife
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has told President Barack Obama that he intends to stay on the job, Treasury said in a statement on Sunday afternoon.
"Secretary Geithner has let the president know that he plans to stay on in his position at Treasury," Assistant Treasury Secretary Jenni LeCompte said. "He looks forward to the important work ahead on the challenges facing our great country."
Geithner had indicated he might leave after a debt-limit increase was approved, but administration officials indicated that both Obama and the White House chief of staff had urged Geithner not to leave now.

I give up. Does Timmy have the goods on Obama or does Obama have the goods on Timmy?
More bad news for the economy. First the downgrade and now this.
Typical liberal...no shame or embarrassment over being a complete failure.
I think this is Timmy’s way of saying that the job market really sucks and if you are currently employed, you better hold on to the job.
Why leave now, America is not completely ruined yet? Still work to do.
-Congressional Black Caucus-
He needs to stay on. We need the full WTF team in place to keep digging us out of the depression!
(For the poor humor-impaired FReeper who is about to flame me about holes and digging, here’s the </SARC> tag!!)
Obama has no use for independent thinkers working for him. He wants yes men and lackeys. So Timmy stays.
The Asian Markets open in just FOUR HOURS from now.
I’m sure this news will inspire good feelings and confidence among investors overseas.
ELECT! EJECT! EJECT!! Watch out below!!!!!
Hey...it’s all in the family [CIA Family that is]...zero’s mom [along with his grandparents...grandfather was BHO SR.’S handler] and timmy’s dad worked together at the Ford Foundation...a front for the grey and black ops of the CIA...
Of course Timmy is staying..the job isn’t completed yet..there is still work to be done..they won’t be satisfied til our Credit Rating is at A- if that is even possible
Federal gigs are plum. That being said, I had no idea that the employee tells the employer the terms of their employment?
Why should Geithner quit or be fired now? He hasn’t finished the job Obama wants him to do yet. Make no mistake about it. It’s been the plan all along to bankrupt America. That’s Obama’s goal and it is Geithner’s too. This is the “change” and “rearrangement” Obama ran on. The dolts who voted for him had no clue how bad it’s going to get for them or us.
Obama should fire his entire cabinet, and bring in accomplished craftsmen with proven track records that go further than community organizing and academia.
It may have been the KGB wing of the company.
well we have to hang it round obama’s neck like an albatross.
Why not? He’s done such a bang up job so far.
Plus, Obama needs a fall guy.
Yeah, but is he going to pay his taxes?
‘cause he’s the Illuminati Liaison.
This could be a trick. Timmy says he wants to stay. That gives obama a chance to fire him.
I’m not saying Geithner B the devil,
That B obammy’s jOb
This smooth talk like I was going to maybe leave but now i am staying will make our ratings worsen. What part do they not get that their plan of destroying our country looks better if they try to at least pretend like they will stop the reckless course they have us on?
They just don’t care they will raise taxes and add to the 22 trillion until there is a communist NWO.
This guarantees additional downgrades. There’s no way this problem gets fixed while the people who were responsible for causing the problem remain in decision-making positions.
Exactly, see my last post. I am glad I am not the only one who sees this.Obama can’t be touched because he is black and any impeachment is racist.
I agree. Those that brought us to this place are going to continue moving us in the same direction. If this was a professional baseball, basketball or football team, these fools would be long gone already.
America’s credit rating downgraded and no one is getting held accountable?
another WTF moment in the Obama administration of just say it wasn’t you....
Thats ok, when the pubs get to the bottom of the conspiracy of this manufactured crisis, they’ll be able to take him out in cuffs.
Look at it logically. Can anyone name any Treasury Secretary since 1980 who’s worth less than $100M? Retirement will not be a problem for Timmy Tax Cheat.
Geithner is the best fox to be put in charge of the hen house.
Thank you. Excellent article.
Over fifty years ago, my dad who was connected to MI
and operations told me that the Communists would take
over America using "Blacks" as their Trojan Horse.
Little Timmy Geithner is gonna stay on?
We need more, many more Geithners to help nobama achieve his dream.
This is wonderful, wonderful news.
And this AIN’T sarcasm.
He can’t leave or else all of his lawbreaking might be exposed.
Isn’t it illegal to threaten the president? Geitner should be arrested immediately.
whew. thank God! cool heads, steady hands! That's what we need!
This is BS. He'll be out by Wednesday.
Don’t forget that Tiny Timmy’s Daddy and Obama’s Mommy worked together.
Obama’s mother, Stanley A. Dunham, worked for Tim Giethner

8 Feb 2010 Obama’s mother, Stanley A. Dunham, worked for Tim Giethner ... Peter Geithner ( Tim’s Father) was director of the Asia program at the Ford ...
Not so! Remember Friday they blamed "faulty analysis" by S&P.
I'm not really a quotes person but Reagan said it best when he compared government to a big baby: huge appetite at one end, no sense of responsibility at the other.
I've never seen a Democratic party this unwilling to accept responsibility for anything. All they do is hold back, attack Republican plans, show no cards and deflect blame.
I read that article too, and I can’t help but wonder if all those connections and assertions about CIA front organizations are for real.
Is it written anywhere else that the Students for a Democratic Society was created out of whole cloth by the CIA?
Yes, Timmy boy thought the street thought he had talent and going to pay him the big bucks. Now that it’s obvious even to him that his only talent is screwing up, he is not going to give up a job.
He is and always will be a politically appointed hack with no track record of expereince, achievement or abilities. Just like his boss.

Translation...... No one else will accept the job and his resignation was refused with threats of death
Oct 6, 2006, AP reports on Pelosi's plans if she becomes speaker among them "Pay as you go," meaning no increasing the deficit, whether the issue is middle class tax relief, health care or some other priority..."
How's that compare to her record as Speaker even with a Democrat president?
