Too smart?

March 24, 2009

Re "Geithner can still pay off for Obama," Opinion, March 22

We are told to be patient with Timothy F. Geithner because he's a smart guy and we need smart guys because everything connected with finance is oh-so-complicated. But perhaps he's just a little too smart for his own -- and our own -- good.

Remember, it was smart guys who got us into this mess. Any time these smart finance guys talk about large sums of money and complications, we know we're being swindled. Any time these guys tell you that $165 million is a drop in the bucket, we know someone is making off with a bundle.

We don't need someone who is smart enough to unravel the Gordian knot of finance that the smart guys have given us; we need someone bold enough to cut it. That man is not Tim Geithner.
