Not only is the prospective Treasury Secretary a complete idiot when it comes to figuring out that he owes taxes, but he’s got another special quality:
If Obama Treasury Secretary nominee Timothy Geithner is so smart, why was he so dumb in handling his own taxes? Or perhaps he wasn’t so dumb. Perhaps he thought he could get away with not paying his taxes. Either way, how is he fit to be Treasury Secretary, with jurisdiction over the IRS?
These are among the questions that still beg for answers after Geithner, President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, spent a few hours on Wednesday at a confirmation hearing before the Senate Finance Committee.
But don’t expect the media to try to get any definitive answers by demanding that Geithner return for more grilling.
As for the Congress, the same liberal politicians who have admittedly not exercised proper oversight over the Wall Street financial bailout are rushing Geithner’s nomination through the Senate and a committee vote is scheduled for Thursday morning.
……Several Senators on hand at Geithner’s hearing said they had been contacted by their constituents, many of them upset at the thought that somebody with a tax history like Geithner’s could even be considered for such a post.
……Geithner’s main but unspoken “qualification” for the job is being a Wall Street insider with political connections to those who have brought the United States to the point of financial ruin and subservience to Communist China.
……Geithner, who speaks Chinese and lived in China, is a protégé and former employee of former Secretary of State (‘New World Order’) Henry Kissinger, now an adviser to companies doing business in China and a prominent board member of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations. This is the group that recently rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange in celebration over China’s economic ascent. All of this was done out in the open, but few in the media noticed or commented upon its significance.
Geithner’s father, former Ford Foundation official Peter F. Geithner, sits on the board with Kissinger of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations. He sat behind his son at the Senate confirmation hearing. He supervised the work of Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, when she worked for the foundation in Indonesia.
Geither is so far up the ass of the communist Chinese government, when they eat Chow Mein he can taste it.
