Tim Geithner Will Sort Out This Whole Fed Chairman Controversy Once And For All


So, this happened:

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)

Will Tim Geithner have a moment of epiphany and realize it would be totally wrong of him to recommend his old mentor/hijacking buddy Larry Summers for the job?

And finally: Seriously? Why is Tim Geithner in this discussion?
