Was this what Obama meant when he said Tim Geithner was the ONLY man who could fix this Economy?

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is supposed to have 17 top deputies. Yet, none have been confirmed. Could this impact foreign relations for upcoming summit? Does this look unprofessional for a man who Obama said was the "Only man who to fix our ailing economy"
~
The British Government is finding it "unbelievably difficult" to prepare for the G20
summit because no one in the US Treasury department is answering their calls, Britain's top civil servant Gus O'Donnell has said.
There is nobody there," he told a civil service conference in Gateshead. "You cannot believe how difficult it is."
The reported comments come after Downing Street aides were left frustrated by the White House's chaotic handling of arrangements for Gordon Brown's visit last week.

  • Nobody knows unless you just want to assume he was lying to get Americas support in all this mess. I have found Obama does not know much of anything involved with being President. It's amazing how little he knows

  • If thats the case, then we are in a bigger mess than I thought. Hes only saying that because hes the one that put him there. If he isn't instrumental in fixing this, then its a personal failure. I don't tend to believe that he can fix this. Its an issue thats rooted in Americas greed for power and money. In other words....its in the heart.

  • Obama talked a good talk full of hot air. He knows nothing about running a country. He fooled a lot of people and now we all have to suffer the consequences. Personally I think he should step down he is a disgrace to our country.

    NO WAY, then we're stuck with Biden, or, if he goes with him, Pelosi. As incompetent as he is, he's still a far sight better than those he's chosen and those who are out to take him down and put Hillary in his place.

    I would taken Biden anyday over the A$$hole in office, Biden is stupid enough to pulled in any direction you want and he just says " well duh, ok, let's go I'm the sheriff!"
    With a Republican Congress in 2 years, hell yes!!

    Reading Hard Times, btw, almost halfway thru it. Thanks on the note regarding the book being a good read. Wrote in 1970, but very relevant for today.
