Last Man Standing

Timothy Geithner is the last member of President Obama's original group of economic advisers, and I sincerely wish that wasn't so. Geithner's shaping up to be the second coming of Donald Rumsfeld; he's so utterly hapless at either comprehending the current situation or the actual solution that he thinks high unemployment is unsolvable and unprecedented. He's a man reading last year's news today.

He's also a fan of weak tea: that's why there hasn't been a single prosecution for bank fraud stemming from the crisis, and that's why every stimulus and jobs bill that's even proposed is "too big".

Do us all a favor and resign, Tim.
