To paraphrase a song, the name of which I can’t remember…
Anyway, some quick thoughts:
- Geithner says the economy is in “an early stage” of crisis. This has been going on for years now – when are we going to be in a late stage?
- Obama has an Internet watchdog site to catch websites that are critical of him. I guess I haven’t been critical enough, because no one’s said anything to me. Should I be offended? Take me seriously, dammit!
- The White House seems to have played a major role in overriding the concerns of government budget and financial wonks over the loan guarantee to Solyndra. I’m not surprised at all. This president’s entire existence has been about appearance over reality.
I’m off to Amman, Jordan on Thursday so expect to hear from me again on Monday.
