Tim Geithner, "Gigantic Fool"

One of the things Liberals and Democrats loved to repeat ad nauseum for eight years was the myth that the whole world hated the United States because George W. Bush was president. I'm not going to get into a discussion about how stupid that was, as simply demonstrated by the alliances that continued to flourish, the trade that continued to transact, and the millions of new immigrants (legal and illegal) that continued to pour into The Great Satan during Bush's tenure. But how is the Left treating the fact that much of the world thinks Obama's Treasury Secretary, tax cheat Tim Geithner, is a fool? Golly, not a word. We're not hearing them say, "Oh, the world thinks we're stupid because of Tim Geithner." Instead, we hear folks such as Paul Keating, Australia’s 24th Prime Minister (1991 to 1996) refer to Geithner as "a gigantic fool." Keating accuses Geithner of tarnishing the reputation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), of screwing up Asian economies and even a leader to lose power. "Gigantic fool" might be putting mildly. Tim Geithner is a dangerous idiot. The full article about Keating's remarks about Tim Geithner can be found at The Syndey Morning Herald's website.
