Video - Jim Rogers on Tim Geithner's failures...

Jim Rogers is f'ing hilarious. I've watched him for 15 years and remember his CNBC chronicled investing globe-trot with the puffed-up, bright lemon Mercedes thing.  He settled in Hong Kong or Singapore with his young wife and generally delivers the pain via satelite on Bloomberg or occasionally CNBC. I hope he stays around for 30 more years wreaking havoc every step of the way.  Gentle Jim, en fuego.

From the Rogers video - on the newest bailout plan:

The politicians are making it worse, not better, and you know why they're making it worse? They want to support their friends on Wall Street and the bankers so they can all keep their Maseratis or their Ferrari's or whatever they're driving.

On what he wanted to hear yesterday:

I'd love for Mr. Geithner to say, "Listen guys, we've got serious problems" ... Mr. Obama could have said, "We've got a horrible problem. We've got to make up for a lot of excesses that have taken place over the last ten years. Some people are going to suffer. We have umbrellas, we have safety nets, we will do our best to help all of you who get affected by this, but it's going to be tough for a couple of years. Don't worry, America will come out of this in the end if we increase our savings, if we increase our investment, everything will be fine."

But, instead what they came out and said was, "Look, we have a horrible problem of too much debt and too much consumption and too much borrowing. You know what we're going to do? We're going to borrow more and go deeper into debt and consume more."
