Everybody's Blabbing These Days

In “Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President,” by Pulitzer-winning journalist Ron Suskind, a picture of tension is painted between the president and his economic team, with the extreme example of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner ignoring an order to have Citigroup dissolved.

Suskind added that the president has been “systematically undermined or hedged by his seasoned advisers" at nearly every turn, according to an excerpt published by Politico.

Geithner is quoted as explaining, "I don’t slow walk the president on anything."

Raw Story

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
