8. I believe the President trusts the judgement of experts ... Timothy Geithner, moreso than his own judgement. He wants "experts" around him that know more than he does. It doesn't matter what political persuasion they might be. He wants rational, patient, moderate individuals with expert knowledge. The one thing he doesn't know is that there are no "experts" on these critical issues. We elected him to make those decisions, not the "experts".
