Who wants this guy to lead our Treasury Department again?
Why aren't people stepping up and asking these questions? I'm reading NYT's LiveBlogging of Geithner's confirmation hearings and the only sane people in the room are Jim Bunning and Charles Grassley! Trust me, I do not find myself agreeing with conservative Republicans often as they have as much to do with this as anyone.
Sure, Geithner's tax problems are troubling, but this is one step above driving in the carpool lane alone in my book. I'm more concerned about whether Democrats are falling all-over themselves to endorse him based on his connections, rather than his ability to critically understand the drivers of the economic and financial crisis and create solutions that will solve the problems.
Right now, my bet is not.
I hope I'm wrong.
