What it says and what it does are too different matters.
According to this review Mr. Geithner thinks quite a lot of himself. He takes credit (credit?) for the lion’s share of the TARP bailout, which he sees as a success and not as many have come to see in the years since, an overreaction to a meltdown brought on by easy money which fundamentally undermined our economy.
“I felt like a guy in the boiler room of the Titanic, desperately bailing to keep the ship afloat for a few more hours while the DOJ attorneys complained from their first-class cabin that their champagne wasn’t properly chilled.”
Justice claims the Journal bribed officials to get information. In China? No, that can’t be.
Some at the paper think the “wistleblower” is a Chinese agent seeking revenge for the Journal’s reporting on high level officials.
Sadly, it’s that time of year again. The big bill. A little help (maybe) from The Wall Street Journal.
The Journal Reports that in March a debate was had within the White House around whether a “dragnet” of citizen records should be created.
The Wall Street Journal got this right in an editorial today:
Luigi Zingales asserts in this Wall Street Journal op-ed that America is starting to look a little too much like Italy (his mother country) economically.
Increasingly merit has less to do with “success” in the United States than access to persons of power, especially government power.
I have been very open in my support for Ron Paul. I personally believe he is the last best chance for us to save the remnant we have of the Republic and from there reestablish it to what it should be. I also think that Ron Paul has an excellent chance of beating Obama. He might even have a better shot than Romney.
One of the biggest stories not being covered by the old media is the contrast in crowd numbers between the 2 GOP rivals. Ron Paul, week after week is getting crowds of 5,000, 6,000, nearly 10,000 to hear him speak. Romney can barely fill a college lecture hall. And this is why Romney’s camp is getting nervous.
