Treasury Tim Geithner leaving...are the rats fleeing the sinking ship or will there be change we can believe in?
Is Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner on his way out? According to senior White House officials – Geithner is considering leaving his post after the debt-limit fiasco is resolved. Geithner denied the reports, saying he plans to stay in his job for the “foreseeable future” – but a source at the White House says that Geithner has been discussing plans to leave since early this year. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates left yesterday – and a handful of other top officials have left the White House this year including Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and Economic adviser Larry Summers.
Which makes me wonder – are the rats fleeing the sinking ship?
Or is President Obama finally coming to his senses and will soon be putting some real progressives on his staff instead of the same old corporate suits.
