Asked about the performance of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Obama said: "Tim Geithner didn't draft these contracts with AIG. There has never been a Secretary of the Treasury except maybe Alexander Hamilton right after the Revolutionary War who's had to deal with the multiplicity of issues that Secretary Geithner is having to deal with, all at the same time." He followed up by explaining, "He is making all the right moves in terms of playing a bad hand."
Actually, no... Geithner's a disaster. Anyone who either is too stupid to understand the tax system he's supposed to administer or is too ethically challenged to pay taxes he owes to the US government should not be compared to Alexander Hamilton.
Meanwhile, Timmy still has yet to unveil his plan for fixing the banking system and still hasn't put together his staff!
He's such a disaster that the right-wing writers over at Saturday Night Live just had to make fun of him.
