Yep! Mr. Geithner spends the weekend painting with the broadest brush possible before Goldman Sachs knew what was aimed at them. One very logical defensible remark came with regard to Warren Buffet. Apparently he recently made a $5 billion investment with Goldman Sachs and of course he took a 20% hit when the stock took a dive, but the point is that a guy of Buffet's caliber doesn't make that kind of investment without doing his homework. Had he had even a glimmer of the kind of problem we are hearing about one would wonder if he would have made a move to invest.
I have no idea who is right or wrong, it's just that it's really tough to see a sleaze like Geithner piling on like that. A little dirty fighting even if they are guilty--would like to see an even fight.
Another guy who evidently needs a little press is Bill Clinton. Do you think he might be planting ideas which he hopes will become self-fulfilling prophecies? And frankly, I'm sure he'd like nothing better than to be able to say "I told you so." The problem which might occur, however,could end up having some left wing nut trying to do something so it would be blamed on conservatives. No doubt there are fringes on all sides of the argument.
Oh, yes- Before I close, I'd like to say that we had an extremely successful event this evening with what was probably a hundred or so folks coming out for ice cream and to learn about the opportunities for precinct delegates. I ended up with fifty Identity Affidavits to turn in to the County Clerk tomorrow, 41 from this evening's affair. You have until May 11 at 4:00 pm to turn in your own.
Hope it warms up this week--
