Geithner Blames Regulators But Excuses Himself - Charlie Rose Video

PBS Video:  Geithner on Finreg - July 22, 2010

Not sure how he keeps a straight face through the lies.  He blames regulators in a general sense with no acknowledgement of the role he played as President of the New York Fed.  Rose is complicit.  Four minute summary is above.  The complete interview is available below.

The head of China’s largest credit rating agency... [edited] ... the editorial said...

Yes, Ken, that is pretty much the entire article you pasted in. Thanks alot. But this has nothing whatsoever to do with Charlie Rose and Geithner's lies. But yes, thanks for wasting my time.

Geirhner's like the monkey, who when given photos of monkeys and humans to sort, puts himself in the human pile.

'I've never been a regulator, for better or for worse,'
~ Tim Geithner March 26, 2009

Geithner wasn't asleep at the switch; He didn't even know he was supposed to be at the switch.

Mark, I think Geithner is a lot sharper than most people think. He just doesn't perform well in public.

I believe Geithner was was a major player in a conspiracy to keep the Wall Street banks and their investors from having their asses handed back on a platter.

That the U.S. taxpayer is paying the bills means nothing to those involved including Geithner. Other having to make sure Congress doesn't develop a conscience and instead keeps to their usual corrupt agenda to keep the taxpayer paying the bills, every thing is going according to plan. Things are great on Wall Street.

It would be uncivilized to have poor ultra rich just because they invested in crooked investments. Even though they were aware of the risks involved, some how they seem to have been saved from losing everything by friends in high places.

My Sons 401K tanked completely all the money he had put in to it for 15 years gone. As he isn't considered elite, ultra-rich, or even rich. He and people like him are considered expendable along with millions of others up and down the income ladder.

Geithner is good at carrying out the orders of Volcker and Bernanke. It is difficult to know if he is smart because he speaks in that fancy central bank / federal government slang that usually makes no sense and usually is a lot of circular logic and doublespeak. With all that banker mafia jargon, he can talk for hours and say nothing. Some in here should be able to relate. Geithner is an upper middle management henchman. I think his bosses like him because he is pliable and doesn’t second guess them.

The only thing a crazy person aint, is "Crazy", trust me. We lived threw the movie. "Sleeping With the Ennamie".......It tore my band & Crew apart from the inside out.

Well, I think we'd all agree that Geithner's never going to be remembered for standing up for what's right.

I just picture him spinning in the big chair at the NY Fed, trying to get pecils to stick in the ceiling.

You know he sucks at that, too. (Switch? What switch? Oh, sure I'll have lunch with Lloyd and Gary.)

"I just picture him spinning in the big chair at the NY Fed, trying to get pecils to stick in the ceiling."

Mark, I'd love to see a picture in the news of him spinning around one of those trees on the White House Lawn with a caption reading, ( Justice is Served )

Geithner is but a COG in the evil machine that is our federal government. They could replace him in a heartbeat with someone else equally as subservient to their interests as easily as you or I change a fuse. Same goes for Mobamba. Like Ken says, he's PROVEN to be just a GS Meat Puppet. It's all just a Kabuki theatre show for the American Sheeple.

When I watch the Sherman clip with Geithner...
(3:00 mark) I get the impression that he evades the questions about Bailout bonus transparency because he has to ask someone else. I never hear him say want he wants to do or will do.

Don't get me wrong, a puppet is every bit as despicable as the mastermind (maybe more so). I just don't see him as the mastermind. He seems more like someone who should be making cookies in a hollow tree (do young people get that reference?).
