      Even for an obviously derivative schematic thinker such as him. Too many really smart economic experts were explaining in great detail and with much passion and visibility why this was absolutely the wrong thing to do. Only a moron would have valued the advice of Tim Geithner over theirs. And Obama's no moron. He did this because it was the politically safe and expedient thing for HIM to do for HIS and his allies' interests. He took care of himself and his tribe.
