Just… Wow

By selecting Tim Geithner as his Treasury secretary, Barack Obama has opted for a figure who plausibly represents change while also offering a high degree of continuity with both the Paulson Treasury and its Clinton administration pre-decessors.

How can you read that and not have visions of Homer Simpson doo-doo-dooing the circus theme.

Bonus Funny: The circus theme is actually called “Entrance of the Gladiators” and is military march with a nod to the Roman Empire.

  1. Well, what did you expect from well-spoken democratic successful politician ;-). Right decisions hardly increase your popularity among masses.

  2. Ha. “Change” my rear end. I’m extremely disappointed with Obama’s appointment of a guy who ran the New York State Federal Reserve Bank – he ran one part of the problem!

  3. I’m really not concerned with Obama’s choice, honestly. The only people who advocate failure of industry—let alone banks—are those who truck with the Method of a Hundred Million Heads.

    Personally, I’m in favor of the government taking large stakes in these banks and using it to enforce responsibility.

    Obviously you have never been to country where government had large stakes in banks and other companies.

    When government will take large stakes in them the last thing you will see is increased responsibility. Quite the opposite really.
