President Obama’s Katrina Moment

President Obama just had his “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job” moment. In an appearance on “60 Minutes” tonight, Obama was asked what he’d say to embattled Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner if he offered his resignation. Obama said he would say, “Sorry, buddy, you’ve still got the job.” Obama’s support of Geithner came off like Bush patting Michael Brown on the back after Katrina: typical of the no-we-can’t mantra at the White House right now. Geithner is too ineradically conditioned by his Wall Street past to give the nation what it needs right now: Dump him!
