  •  Yves is off the deep end. (1+ / 0-)

    I used to be a big fan of Yves, but she goes so far out of her way to blame everything on Obama, and to disagree with Krugman, she now comes across as kind of crazy.

    And she's wrong about this.  DeMarco should be fired, and Geithner should go out the door right behind him.

    I'm hoping after the election that Obama has a cabinet shakeup and Geithner is on the top of the list to get booted.

    •  Geithner had to be all but begged to stay on... (0+ / 0-)

      ...this year (by Obama). He wanted to leave in 2011. It was all made rather public, in fact.

      Yves certainly does go over the top sometimes. But, sometimes that's due to the fact that she's just fed up with the two parties, in general. (I'm not apologizing for her, because I've stated this many other times in this community, in the past.)

      The reality is that "the banks own the place" (D.C.), and that's one of the truest "bipartisan" statements of all.

      Government in this country, just like Wall Street, is quite corrupt; and, that was certainly the case BEFORE Citizens United, even though that's being used as an excuse these days.

      Citizens United had NOTHING to do with the President's appointment of Geithner, reappointment of Bernanke, or the appointments of Orszag, Summers, Emanuel, Daley, or Lew. Make no mistake about this, despite kabuki to the contrary.
