During Katrina President Bush complimented his then FEMA director Michael Brown. In the midst of the crisis the president said “you’re during doing a hell of a job Brownie.” His embattled director was subsequently shown to be completely out of touch and ultimately removed from his position. Brown’s problem was he failed to understand the situation and in doing so he failed to have the resources in place to fix it. Well when I hear President Obama continue to defend Tim Geithner I can not help but think of good ole Brownie. Does Geithner fully understand this crisis? In light of the AIG mess one has to wonder. When he was told about the bonuses why did he go along? Why didn’t he say well let them sue? Holding to the money would have been better than trying to recover it or tax it after the fact. On the Tonight Show President Obama said he was doing an “outstanding job.” If I was Geithner I might not be resting easy today because you can be praised today and unemployed next week just ask Brownie.
