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.

Can't people on DU find forgiveness in their hearts?

I'm continually amazed by the callousness I find on DU.

Our President wants to put the robo-signing mess behind us. Why is that so controversial? Have we become so hardened that we cannot find a little forgiveness in our hearts?

Sure, these good folks committed perjury that wrecked many thousands of lives - but not once did they commit perjury about their own personal sex lives. And they sure as hell didn't smoke pot. Given these facts, I believe that they are not a danger to society. And I hope that you'll join me in cheering the end of the private Hells that these bankers have been living in.

Tomorrow is a new day. Let's forgive and forget.

So we're slashing more government jobs in a Depression

We're going to merge government agencies to "cut waste and duplication". That's just brilliant. Hoover-licious. And it seems the the newly neoliberal world of DU loves it, just loves it.

Remember that FDR joker? He started programs to give people makework, just to have an excuse to give them government cash that wasn't welfare. And we can see how that bullshit worked out: unemployment dropped 40% in four years, and the economy grew at 8% a year. Those poor bastards didn't know how awful they had it, what with things getting better and all.

Thank God we don't have to worry ourselves over the prospect of unemployment dropping 40% in four years, and the economy growing at 8% a year. Bank profits would go down or some other bad thing, no doubt.

Hey purists: there's NO WAY Obama could have recess appointed Elizabeth Warren to head CFPB

NO WAY. The REPUBLICANS would have BLOCKED IT.

Now we have a SUCCESSFUL appointment, thanks to our president's FAR-SIGHTED and POLITICALLY-REALISTIC moves.

So pull your heads out of your butts and drink a BIG STEAMING CUP OF REALITY.

I can confidently identify tonight's winner

NotRomney won tonight, by a 3:1 margin. Romney is second, Paul third.

It will be interesting to see which NotObama ends up running in the general election against the NotRepublican. Hopefully the NotRepublican wins.
