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.

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.
