Smiley will now tell us a joke!
Blog Guy, I get the idea that President Obama’s cabinet meetings are a lot of fun. They’re a pretty zany bunch, right?
Smiley? That’s his nickname?
Yes, but I believe it’s a sarcastic one, like calling some huge guy “Tiny.”
Geithner is always scowling and giving the President the stink-eye, as you can see in these three different photos from the same event. I’m surprised the Secret Service lets him sit next to Obama.
Yikes, you’re right! Has he always looked like that?
Nah, just since he had to pay his taxes.
