When I later asked him in private why he had cussed out the people who had arrived on time, he said it was because he knew we would tell the others. He also said HE HAD BEEN TAUGHT the trick in a management class.

Perhaps Geithner attended the same class?

This is, of course, a speculation without any foundation in science or facts. The risk could, of course, be that all the regulators committed suicide or descided to have apple pie for dessert, or anything you feel like adding after of course. Not one of your best.

He has butted heads with these people before.

I do find this disturbing because I think it’s continued evidence of the bullying tactics this administration is willing to employ. Other evidence of that to me is the President’s interaction over the college professor and police officer incident. I am wonder about more of his appointees to Czar positions as well and their previous ties to community organizations who employed the bullying tactic. We shall see. But it’s becoming more and more clear to me that this administration is trying to force its desires upon every aspect of the nation, whether the citizens want it or not. Don’t get me wrong. I’m just as fed up with the Republican side of the isle who continue to shirk their duty to the people.

Where were they when the storm was gathering?

He should have made the announcement and everything.

I can see where the outburst would pose a threat to passing regulation, but I do not think it will. I do not like the outburst but understand why it occured and will forgive him for it.

He has been dealing quietly with the criticisms for a while and wants to get something done because this was his main priority while being Treasury Secretary.
