Another day, another Red Curtain O’ Blood™.

So lemme get this straight:  Timmy-boy “Tuubo Tax-Cheat” Geithner not only thinks that Al-Obambi’s forcing-out of Rick Wagoner at GM head wasn’t unconstitutional – he’s got the hots to do it again.

Days after GM’s CEO Rick Wagoner was forced out by the Obama administration, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner left open the possibility that such moves could happen again.

In an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric, Geithner acknowledged the government has had to do “exceptional things” – citing AIG as well as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Yes.  “Exceptional things”.  Like illegally “firing” a corporate CEO using extortion to get a corporate CEO to quit a job with which Al-Obambi had no business or right to interfere in the first place.

Very nice, Timmy Taxcheat.  Very Mafia-like.  Tony Soprano would be proud of youse.

Asshat.

When asked if he would leave open the option to pressure a bank CEO to resign, Geithner replied: “Of course.”

Shame I don’t own a bank.  I’d love to see him try it with me.  Somehow, I don’t think he’d like my response.

Geithner also skirted criticism that the Treasury Department still has no mechanism for tracking how banks have spent billions of dollars in TARP money, saying the doled out dollars were showing immediate results.

“Interest rates are now at historic lows … for mortgages,” he said. “Millions of Americans are now able to refinance and take advantage of those interest rates. That’s gonna reduce monthly payments very materially for millions of Americans.”

Oh, go fuck yourself, Timmy Taxcheat.  You didn’t have shit to do with that, and both you and the Ayatollah damned well know it.  Mortgage rates were on their way down long before your boy (yeah, I said “boy” – what of it?) even thought  of winning stealing the election, so don’t even  think about trying to take credit for that, assclown!

Geithner acknowledged the enormity of the crisis but said a unified effort would help reverse the financial downturn.

“We’re gonna have setbacks ahead,” he said.

Yes, I’d say pitchforks & torches definitely  count as “setbacks”.

“And that’s why it’s so important that we’re moving together with the world to try to make sure we bring recovery back. And the world is with the president on this.”

Oh, sure you do, Timmy Taxcheat.  China’s been criticizing the Ayatollah for his spending; Putin’s been warning you bastards not to go down the path of socialism, and Sarkozy is even threatening to walk out of the G-20 conference, and he  agrees with you!

Try again, Taxcheat Boy.  Use some reality this time, mkay?
