Obama was definitely fear mongering in the weeks leading up to the mysterious passage of the stimulus bill. Ask Wall Street about Obama's comments.
The market tanked after every major speech that Obama gave on the economic state.
Would it be totally plausible to think that Barry was told to create the panic atmosphere so the bill would pass. He was campaigning for the bill for
Suddenly, now that the bill is moving on, all is getting better by the day. I think we are seeing the markets beginning to correct themselves. This
is normal and should be allowed to occur. I think that little snake named Barry is trying to take credit for a couple days of Market Spikes and
promising forecasts. But, for the next market fall, he'll simply blame the PAST administration.
How about filling all of the vacancies in the Treasury Office so they can get cracking on this economy. What is the hold up??
President Barack Obama’s handy excuse for all sorts of goofs and missteps is that he’s too busy working on fixing the economy. In order to do
that, one might expect that Obama would concentrate on building his economic team at the Department of the Treasury, where most of those efforts would
originate and get managed. Instead, as noted earlier today, phones go unanswered at Treasury — and our allies and trading partners have begun
complaining about the lack of effort in the White House.
From that, we know that more than four dozen positions remain unfilled — positions that Geithner has to fill himself. But what about positions
that the White House has to appoint? I researched that question this morning, and found the list of positions at Treasury that require White House
appointment and Senate confirmation.
It’s quite a list: * Secretary * Deputy Secretary * Under Secretary — Domestic Finance * Under Secretary — International
Affairs * Under Secretary — Terrorism and Financial Intelligence * Assistant Secretary — Economic Policy * Assistant Secretary —
Financial Markets * Assistant Secretary (Deputy Under Secretary) — International Affairs * Assistant Secretary (Deputy Under Secretary) —
Legislative Affairs * Assistant Secretary — Management and Chief Financial Officer * Assistant Secretary — Public Affairs/Director —
Policy Planning * Assistant Secretary — Tax Policy * Chief Counsel — Internal Revenue Service/Assistant General Counsel for Tax *
Commissioner — Internal Revenue (five-year terms of office) * General Counsel * Inspector General * Inspector General — Tax
Administration * Treasurer — United States
Hello!! in this economy Barry should have no problem finding ready and able workers to fill these spots. All of those positions have to be filled
by the White House and can't be appointed by the tax cheat Geitner. Obama says that the economy is Job #1 and yet 50 days into his job and we still
have all of those vacant positions. The only position filled by the White House in the Treasury dept. is Geitner's. That's it. Geitner must have
been the last person at the bottom of the barrel.
