The same bill that rewrote the terms of the TARP money by attaching far more onerous strings to it than the banks agreed to also allowed them an out. The populist outrage against the bank bailout that was channeled through Congress wants the banks to repay the money now or, better yet, sooner. As you note, this very much makes life harder for an administration that feels differently.

How much worse could you do than Geithner?
