Inside story of Obama’s struggle to keep Congress from controlling outcome of debt ceiling crisis
By Bob Woodward, Published: September 8
Notable quotes from the G-Man, advising President Obama. (There are more, but these are sufficient to prove he has little feet. Otherwise, how could he stuff so many in his mouth at once?)
“Why would anyone buy U.S. bonds if it’s an open question whether we are going to have the authority to pay for them?” Tim Geithner, to Pres. Obama
Another possible outcome, Geithner said, was perhaps worse. “Suppose we have an auction and no one shows up?” Tim Geithner, to Pres. Obama
Timmy Geithner is either a complete buffoon, or an outright traitor to his nation. He may be both.
He's being paid a lot to be that wrong, in public, on the record.
