With Tim Geithner “not ruling out” raising taxes on the middle-class, a flagrant backtrack of Obama’s “no tax increases if you make less than $250,000 a year,” it’s clear that Geithner’s gotta go. (Not to mention the fact that he’s a tax cheat, hasn’t managed anything properly in the past 6 months, etc.)
So, as a service to our President, I would like to offer a replacement. How about financial maven Suze Orman?
Not only is she incredibly smart and popular, she has a git-r-done attitude second to none. Not to mention the fact that a president with a penchant for “diversity appointments” and whose freefalling popularity in the GLBT community needs all the help it can get.
Instead of choosing a Harvard egghead who can’t even sell his house after almost a half a year on the market, why doesn’t Obama choose a woman who shattered the glass ceiling of the financial industry with the American values of hard work and perseverance?
Oh, and while we’re at it, why doesn’t Obama rescind Sotomayor’s nomination and choose Judge Judy instead? If we want someone with some vivacity on the bench, let’s get serious!
