If Obama wants to be bi-partisan, why did he hire Geithner?!!??

The new Secretary of Treasury, Timothy Geithner, has caused more PARTISANSHIP in just a few days than most! Why is Obama doing this?!? Not only that, but this guy is a crook! Obama picked someone who did NOT pay roughly $35,000 in taxes, but yet, HE is going to run our Treasury?!?

Let me get this straight, Democrats voted in someone who is guilty of tax fraud to control money for our potential bailout!??!??

  • PP, he paid them late and only when it would benefit him with promotion did he actually pay the taxes and penalties. He is nothing more than a liar and a theif.

  • He is not the only one who did something wrong. So what is your point posting the question? Did you call your State Senator and ask why he/she voted for him?

  • Don't worry thunder, now all they have to do is put the delinquency notice on his desk. They won't even need to take a government paid vehicle, while clocking govt. paid time to get to his door. Although, they should invest in some of those red Post-It flags so that he doesn't miss it in his 'IN' bin.

  • He paid them late, when found out he was being selected by Obama. OVER 3 YEARS LATER. He was even given money BY HIS EMPLOYER to offset the cost of the tax payments.


    Here is the Breakdown of how the vote went :http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2009/01/61942290/1


    So, the Majority (DEMOCRATS) voted in a man who fraudelently handled himself within the Organization he will be overseeing.  This is the same man who was the Architect of TARP (bailout I)  Look how good that went over.

    Seems to be part of the Democratic Oath,"If you were any other person you would be in jail. But instead we will put you in the Democratic Party."
