    •  His first gig after leaving Citi was in Hillary's (0+ / 0-)

      State Department.  The knock against Hillary is that she never managed anything.  So they split the deputy secretary of state gig into to parts, one for policy and one just to run the whole outfit as a manager - Lew was brought in to be the manager.  

      He was there at the State Department from January 2009 until November 2010.  

      Is President Obama really nothing more than a 1980's Reagan Democrat in the year 2013?

        •  It means his first post-Citi gig... (0+ / 0-)

          was being a manager at the State Department for near two years.  It would have been for that gig where Citi paid out the one time bonus.  That gig would have had nothing to do with potentially aiding Citi in any way.  So your grand theory of Lew being paid near a million dollars to run treasury blows up.  But why let facts get in the way of a good conspiracy.

          That's what.

          •  Again, so what if that was his first gig? (0+ / 0-)

            I don't have a grand theory, but it is a fact that Lew has worked for a bank. In a high position, so he will be favorable to them.

              It's hilarious that what he did before and after in his 30 years of working life don't matter a lick - because he worked at a bank it means he's forever indebted to them and is basically a sleeper cell insider for them in Government.
