Bye, Bye, Bye, Geithner!

By | June 30, 2011

While all the lyrics of this particular song do not fit my emotions, there is a particular line that I am singing after the news I just read! Please excuse me while I sing out loud. Feel free to join in at anytime!

I know that I can’t take no more
It ain’t no lie
I wanna see you out that door
Baby, bye, bye, bye…

Thank you, N’Sync! I could not have said it better myself!

It seems as though Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has finally had enough! In a report from Bloomberg, it appears as though Mr. Geithner has given an indication that “he’s considering leaving the administration after President Obama reaches an agreement with Congress to raise the national debt limit”. This information does not come from just one source, but three different people who are “familiar with” the situation.

While I am very excited about this news,  I am scared to hold my breath. The fact that he is “considering leaving the administration” is not good enough for me- yet!  When the official announcement is made, there will another song I will be playing. It goes a little somethin’ like this:

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I’m gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

The article states he has not made his “final decision”. Let’s pray his final decision is to exit stage left!

It is reported that Timmy has told his associates that “he needs a break from government service”. After all, he has had a pretty rough go of things the last few years! He’s had to deal with the distress of financial fall-outs on Wall Street from both sides of the fence. First, he had to deal with things as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and then he had the responsibility of things as President Obama’s Treasury Secretary. Things are mighty tough for you indeed, aren’t they Mr. Geithner?

I’m sorry. I did not intend for my sarcasm to be so thick.

Now with the debt ceiling crisis going on, Mr. Geithner doesn’t seem to be able to take the heat…. so maybe he’ll get outta the kitchen for good!

    CDN authors,

    This is off topic for the headline, forgive me Allenah. As a recent commentator to your site, I would like to provide feedback. I think your site has potential, but it isn’t active enough to make me want to stay. Specifically,

    When I was looking for conservative blogs, I found yours and the first thing that caught my eye was a very nice CDN page design. I think your banner and logo are cool. Then the name.. “Conservative DAILY NEWS.” I was like… even cooler… this sounds like a great place to be… you know… DAILY. Well, it only took about 48 hours for me to see that it isn’t a DAILY news site. That was a bummer… but I said to myself… lets see if comments get feedback. And the feedback was like pulling teeth, as in hit and miss. I believe it was Mitchell that returned a comment which didn’t go very well (no blame on his part… just two different opinions.) But what I found in the commenting back and forth was there isn’t much of it. Most of my thoughtful comments (regardless of what Doc thinks about them… or Mitchell) just sit there unanswered. So I won’t be coming back, at least not for awhile. I don’t know how long you have been operating your site… but the main reason I lost interest is that the AUTHORS don’t have much interest in engaging discussion. Closest I came was with doc, but he either has gone away for the long weekend, or simply got bored with what I had to say.

    Anyway, I thought it best to leave constructive feedback. Hopefully you guys get better.

      Max-

      Thank you for your feedback. I believe constructive criticism is a positive thing. It shows us where we need to grow, what we need to work on as a team, and individually. We have gone through some staff changes very recently, and as always, when there is growth there is always growing pains. I hope that you will check back in with us from time to time. We have many things on the horizon that you may find interesting.
      Again, thank you for your feedback.
