Why is DU down on Geithner? He did the dirty work that needed to be done.

If I recall correctly, Geithner was one of the few people willing to put Elizabeth Warren in her place when she tried to find out what happened during the Wall Street meltdown:

That woman is scary! If she unseats Scott Brown, the job creators will get the vapors and we'll all pay for it.

8. Recommend. I just watched the film Inside Job last night.

Geithner, Greenspan, Summers, Bernanke, Paulson, and the rest of the Wall St. banksters are fracking lying sociopaths and totally are enemies of the 99%.

I highly recommend Inside Job. The trashing of Elizabeth Warren by Geithner was brought up in the film.

Inside Job is a 2010 documentary film about the late-2000s financial crisis directed by Charles H. Ferguson. The film is described by Ferguson as being about "the systemic corruption of the United States by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption." In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis. Inside Job was well received by film critics who praised its pacing, research, and exposition of complex material.

The film was screened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in May and won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

10. You say "lying fracking sociopaths" like it's a bad thing

We're lucky that the 1% let us live. We should be careful to not displease them by making fun of their hobbies.

18. Exactly. Banksters: "Yeah, so we're lying fracking sociopaths.

We're in business to make lots of money for ourselves. Do you have a point to make here?"

28. Great film. If you have the time check out the series done by the Canadian Broadcasting Co. called

Meltdown: The Secret History of the Global Financial Collapse 2010

Long, but well worth the time:

14. WTF? Why do you think I don't want him to win?

I'm looking forward to more "free" trade bills, attacks on Social Security, and banker immunity deals come Nov. 7th as much as anyone is.

Do you have a specific loyalty oath that you'd like me to sign?

20. "I just give 'em the truth, and they think it's Hell"

A Democratic President backing job-destroying "free" trade bills? Waging war on Social Security? Signing away Habeas Corpus? A Whiite House filled with Wall Street riffraff?

These rhings are simply *true*. If you hate them, then you should accuse Obama of working for his *own* defeat.

22. I missed the SOTU, did Obama announce the death of Social Security yet??

I know he's planning on killing it any second.

Or at least that's what I've heard.

No matter how hard you try, we will keep fighting for a Democratic victory. No one here wants a republican in office. Not even if he puts a D by his name and runs as a Democrat.

Giethner is the worst of the worst. The fact that he's still in the administration tells me everything I need to know about Obama and Wall Street.
