America Needs Geithner More Than Ever! Show Him Some Love! [View all]

As EarlG points out, now on DU's front page, Americans bailed out AIG in their time of need. What EarlG doesn't note is that we should be proud of this, mighty proud: while financial titans who mastermind epic failures in other other countries might need to sell a few of their yachts or go to prison, we Americans help our plutocrats with warehouses full of little people's money when they hit a global meltdown of their own making little rough patch. That's what makes America better than other countries.

USA! USA!

When lesser men waivered, it was Timmy Geithner who manfully sprayed torrents of little people's money at AIG and made goddamned sure their bonuses stayed whole. Not content with saving AIG bonuses, Geithner overruled the too-gracious overlords of Goldman-Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and others whose schemes had bankrupted AIG - while these most modest of overlords were happy to accept less profit from their scorched-earth schemes than AIG could pay, Geithner would not hear of it! He stepped up and insisted that they take every last cent they had scammed, paid by you little people of course because AIG didn't have the money.

Now Geithner wants to retire from spraying the little people's money at plutocrats, and that sucks. I'm pretty sure it's because that difficult woman, Elizabeth Warren, said really mean and uncalled for things to Timmy in public:





WTF? That woman's nothing but trouble.

TIMMY GEITHNER DESERVES A MEDAL, NOT MEAN WORDS. And America needs Timmy Geithner more than ever, since the big banks have grown even bigger under his watch: who else could match Geithner's expertise when the next financial collapse happens, any month now?

Please join me in beseeching Timmy to not give up! Don't let that hoity-toity Hah-vahd Massachusetts Liberal get you down! Stay in Treasury where you're needed by the Plutocrats!

Regards,

Third-Way Manny
