So, this happened:
Geithner said to advise President Obama on choice for next Fed Chairman
— Bloomberg News (@BloombergNews) August 2, 2013
Because when you stand accused of being beholden to an old-boy network of Robert Rubinites, the first person you naturally turn to for help is Timothy Geithner.
This raises some interesting questions:
Is President Obama now just trolling the Huffington Post, of which he is reportedly a big fan, out of boredom?
Will we very soon have a "Dick Cheney helps George Bush pick the Vice President" type situation on our hands? (h/t Justin Perras for this nightmare scenario)
And finally: Seriously? Why is Tim Geithner in this discussion?
