    Tim Geithner Will Not Be Showing Himself Out

    If he gets asked to leave, fine, great even. It’s not even really a secret at this point that he wants to go (why do you think he stopped trying to sell his house?). But if anyone here thinks that they can bully him into leaving cause he’s some sort of push over, think again! […]

It came a year ago, when Timmy headed the New York Fed and gave AIG’s counterparties a $25 billion bailout. So says a report from the special inspector general for the […]

    Tim Geithner Is Kinda Worried About The Deficit

    The federal deficit has ballooned by more than $1 trillion dollars this year. This does not make Tim Geithner very happy, but it also doesn’t worry him much, because spending more than we make is at best his third most-pressing priority.

    New Name Floated In Geithner Replacement Talks

    Not Obama’s favorite banker, Jamie Dimon, though you’re on the right track in assuming it’s someone who doesn’t take shit or prisoners from anyone (though he will take a bullet). Someone who, perhaps unlike our current Treasury Secretary, could stand up to Larry Summers and say “No, you’ve had enough Diet Coke for today,” and […]

    Tim Geithner And Larry Summers Will Shock You With Their Tennis Moves

    The first because he’s not a total pussy and the second because he can move. Also, according to Nick Bollettieri, the duo’s coach, Big Lar doesn’t smile when he’s playing, which makes sense considering that while he loves tennis, it ranks third among his favorite things, which are 1) drinking diet Coke and 2) sleeping […]
