Treasury Secretary Geithner has words of praise about House Majority Leader John Boehner. Words of praise mean: “This gutless dork will fold. He will kiss Obama where it counts most.”
Here are his words about a deadlock about the so-called fiscal cliff. “It seems deeply implausible as a strategy and it should be avoidable.” That’s Obamaspeak for “We will kick the can.”
It would not make sense for Republicans not to cave in to Obama, he assured listeners at a Wall Street Journal conference. They must tax the rich.
“Why would you want to put the economy through that, particularly after conceding a recognition that revenues are going to have to go up … on the most fortunate Americans?”
