Obama should fire Giethner and Lawrence Sommers as his main economic advisers immediately. He will never have credibility until he does and will be rightly viewed as a Wall Street pawn.
Why is it that FDR was the only president in our nation's history with the courage to take on Wall Street? Obama will be a failure unless he ends our nation's dominance and rape by the bankers. His recent words against Wall Street were just empty bluster for the masses as his actions are exactly what the big banks want him to do.
Obama, if I want a leader who is in bed with the big banks, I'll vote for a professional by voting Republican. More is expected of you.

That's easy. Geithner can just blame his mistakes on TurboTax again and he's free and clear!

No surprise that Geithner is Barry Obama's boy. Wall St. gave four times as much money to Barry's campaign as compared to McCain's.

Face it, Bush may not have been a straight-A student, but Barry failed lunch.
