Turbo Tax Tim tucks tail

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 3, 2009 11:44 AM

Good for the TARP watchdog. Team Obama tried to tighten his leash. He bit back. Turbo Tax Tim Geithner tucked tail. More, please: The Treasury Department backed away from a standoff over the independence of the special government watchdog appointed to scrutinize how last year’s $700 billion financial-industry bailout is being spent. Neil Barofsky, special […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 4, 2009 10:09 AM

That’s #$%^&*!! Turbo Tax Tim Geithner to you! I can’t help but think there were a few stifled giggles as the feckless Wonder Boy vented.

Sunday morning on the Beltway roundtable circuit

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 2, 2009 12:28 PM

The nutroots were quite upset with George Stephanopoulos for inviting me on his This Week roundtable. They piled on him on Twitter. And even Paul Krugman tried to stir up lefty ire. God forbid a non-establishment, non-Beltway-certified “acceptable” conservative have a voice in a mainstream forum! Unlike Matt Lauer, Stephanopoulos wasn’t compelled to play “beat […]

Bailoutmania: Not “permanent.” Just forever…

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 20, 2009 01:53 PM

A telling exchange this afternoon between staunch fiscal conservative Sen. Jim DeMint and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, via WaPo: Geithner was hammered by a Republican senator decrying Treasury’s growing power over the American economy. “This is not mission-creep,” said Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.). “This is a stampede of any traditional understanding of constitutional boundaries.” DeMint […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 4, 2009 11:47 AM

Treasury Department tax cheat Tim Geithner already announced this knee-slapper initiative in March. The White House follows up today with the details of the crackdown on corporate tax cheats: President Obama on Monday spelled out his plans to close corporate tax loopholes on U.S. multinational corporations and crack down on overseas tax havens. The goal […]

Feds crack down on all the mortgage scammers but one

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 6, 2009 03:50 PM

There was a big dog-and-pony show earlier today led by Tiny Tim Geithner, who announced bold new initiatives to crack down on mortgage scammers and shut down irresponsible lenders cooking the books. Speaking of mortgage scammers who cooked the books, when will they shut down Fannie and Freddie and go after their enablers in Congress? […]

Wonderboy strikes again

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 25, 2009 01:38 PM

Pshop credit: Bucktown Dusty Someone really needs a teleprompter of his own: Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner sent the dollar tumbling with comments about China’s ideas for overhauling the global monetary system, only to drive it back up by affirming that it should remain the world’s reserve currency. Geithner was initially asked at a Council on […]

Still Mr. Lonely: Another Treasury pick jumps ship

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 25, 2009 10:30 AM

Frank Brosens, a hedge fund manager who was Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s choice to run the office overseeing the $700 billion bank bailout program, withdrew his name from consideration. Brosens, a founding partner of Taconic […]

The David Copperfield School of Economic Recovery, Pt. II

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 23, 2009 06:20 AM

Now what? Last week, the Obama administration brought us a $1 trillion Federal Reserve magic trick hatched by the David Copperfield School of Economic Recovery — printing up a trillion bucks and “pumping it into the U.S. economy”…by buying up bonds and mortgage securities…sold and backed by the government. Today, hapless, truth-challenged tax cheat Treasury […]

Gibbs on Geithner: “Uhhhh….uhhhh…uhhh”

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 20, 2009 02:52 PM

The Robert Gibbs Live Comedy Hour WH press briefing is on. Press corps is actually pressing Gibbs on Tim Geithner. A journo asked Gibbs about the Geithner date discrepancies (March 10? March 3?) Gibbs replied, and I quote: “Uhhh…uhhhh…uhhh…uhhh.” After having made snarky remarks about “his friends on cable TV” in response to a question […]

Geithner: Can’t get taxes straight, can’t get dates straight…

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 20, 2009 12:08 PM

Can he get anything straight? TurboTax failed him. So, apparently, did Outlook calendar. Hapless Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner claims he didn’t find out about the AIG bonus issue until March 10. This was contradicted by AIG president Edward Liddy’s testimony before Congress earlier this week. Liddy was right. Geithner was wrong. And it’s all on […]

Geithner crawls on his knees to AIG; Plus: Sunday open thread

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 15, 2009 07:21 AM

Busy with offline stuff today. What’s on your minds? Here’s a blood-boiler of the morning. Mr. Lonely Tim Geithner — who was instrumental in putting together the wealth-redistributing AIG “rescue” plan — now apparently believes that if he says “pretty please with sugar on top,” the bailout behemoth will cut back on bonuses sure to […]

They said he was uniquely qualified. A wunderkind. The Man with the Plan. Too big to fail. Now we learn from the on-the-ball MSM that tax cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is flailing about and in over his head. Who’s shocked? For five weeks, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has battled the worst economic crisis in […]
