Obama Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner Praises “Positive Sides” of the Tea Party … Guess they Don’t Amuse Turbo Tax Tim
And now for something completely different … These people will say anything … THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS FOR THE TEA PARTY AFTER THEY WERE OPPOSED TO THEM!
Obama Treasury Secretary Turbo Tax Tim Geithner praises the positive sides of the Tea Party. Priceless, Geithner suggests that The Tea Party movement’s concern with deficit spending and an out of control and record deficits under Obama could align the group with the administration in the future. What, Obama fiscally responsible, now that’s PRICELESS.
This makes as much sense as Bill Clinton claiming expertise in marital fidelity, Obama’s discretion in choosing friends and pastors, Nancy Pelosi’s (choices) in plastic surgeons…..
Then again, the head of the IRS wasn’t quite bright enough to navigate ‘Turbo Tax’ software, so who knows?
We go from Obama mocking the Tea Party to Geithner praising them. Talk about good cop, bad cop … or is it just typical BS! Looks like some damage control for Obama’s ill advised comments the other day.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner praised the “positive side” of the tea party movement Sunday, suggesting the movement’s concern with deficits could align the group with the administration in the future.
Asked by NBC “Meet the Press” host David Gregory about the movement, Geithner said its concerns were informed by the expansion of spending under President Bush, and that the awareness now that there’s no way to pass an “enormous expansion of government without paying for it” is “an important change.”
This is a combination between the sublime, the surreal, the bizarre and the wishful thinking and concern of the Obama White House. The Obama White House has done nothing but add record deficits with their continued bail outs and out of control spending and $trillion Obamacare plan and he some how thinks and has the audacity to say that Obama cares about deficits.
TIMOTHY GEITHNER: –let me– let me do the positive side of this. Okay? We’ve– just been through eight years where people said– many people said, ‘Deficits don’t matter. We can– we can pass huge tax cuts, pass huge new programs without paying for them.’ That debate has changed fundamentally. Now you don’t hear people say anymore, ‘Deficits don’t matter.’ You don’t hear people saying that we can pass enormously—enormous expansion of government without paying for it. That’s an important change. I think all Americans understand that our deficits are unsustainable. And I think that’ll be helpful as we move to try to make the hard choices to bring them down again.”
I think American Power makes more sense in that Geithner is just enamored with the Tea Party hotties.
The fact is that Obama has a real issue with the Tea Parties and his Administration has yet to properly address the issues that they and many Americans stand for, The Contract from America:
