Here’s a sob story about how Wonder Boy Tim Geithner, Uniquely Qualified Savior of The Economy, is all alone. Snippet:
US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is practically alone on the job, working night and day to cope with the worst economic downturn in decades…
Paul Volcker, former Federal Reserve chairman and now head of the newly formed Economic Recovery Advisory Board, told a February 26 Congress hearing that it was “shameful” Geithner had no assistants.
“He shouldn’t be sitting there alone … it really is an unfortunate situation.”
At a Senate Finance Committee hearing Thursday, Senator Tom Carper told Geithner, “obviously, you need help,” eliciting from the treasury secretary that he saw his family “less than I would like.”
Treasury spokesman Isaac Baker denied there were “vetting problems or delays in the process” for nominees at his department.
Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
I’m dedicating Bobby Vinton today to Mr. Lonely Tim Geithner:
