9. Geithner and Summers
Edited on Sat May-30-09 08:51 AM by AllentownJake
Geithner is in charge of the SEC. The Justice Department prosecutes but Geithner is the one who has the power.

Geithner is of the belief he needs the guys who create the problem to undo the problem. Geithner is also one of the guys who caused the problem so it makes sense he'd believe that.

Obama is of the belief that if he prosecutes the war criminals there will be political back lash. Whether there is or not is debatable. The thing to remember about the President, he's a decent man, but he's a politician first and foremost. President Obama is Bill Clinton with some personal discipline.
