Great Onion Headline...


Oh wait, that's NOT the Onion?  Damn, could have fooled me.

Just reading the story/blog post made me chortle.  Thank you Andrew Malcolm...
The master of finance who has so successfully assisted President Obama in boosting the national debt by more than $3 trillion, driving unemployment back north of 9% by spending only $787 billion in stimulus funds, corroding consumer confidence and presiding over the first federal credit downgrading in history has agreed to stick around to continue his impressive work for this Democratic administration.

Geithner is the sole survivor of President Obama's opening economic team. Obama is reported pleased.
High comedy.  Although the rest of the piece gets serious.  For example...
Recent polls found Obama losing ground against any Republican opponent. The continued tenure of a treasury secretary who couldn't file his own accurate income taxes before being appointed should only help further.
Yeah, I'd say that is a problem.  Although we haven't seen any results of that just yet.
