52. No. Apparently because he is a Dem
I am not sure why it is always assumed that if you criticize Obama's policy it is out of hostility? Ok there are a lot of people out there who are actually on a smear campaign or haven't let go of the primaries, but DUers have to realize that there are going to people who don't have such hard-core interest politics or such fixed views.

Most people out there who support Obama (and are not logged on to DU 24/7) are going to be more like me and generally like and support the guy and occasionally, such as now, raise an eyebrow at what will eventually be one of the most important parts of his presidency.

Why don't some DUers understand that it is not even in Obama's best interest politically to follow this Geithner plan. I take a bit of offense to the idea that most people out there, even if reasonably well-educated, can absolutely not understand matters related to the economy, to the extent that they may not even offer a general opinion based on their impression of a broad overview of what is being proposed.

I really like a lot of what I have seen from Obama with regard to his policies on science and the environment. But, his economic team does not appeal to me so far and I think if he messes up on that front it will affect him inm the future and we will be stuck with fucking Palin/Plumber in '012.
