Tim Geithner and Jon Stewart Square Off….

Over the past couple of weeks former Secretary of Treasury Tim Geithner has been doing the round on the talk-show circuit promoting his new book, ‘Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises’.

With this book Geithner attempts to set the record straight on why the bailout was necessary and without it, the financial crises would have been much worse.

The bailout of the financial industry is one of those topics that rub both Conservatives and Liberals the wrong way and has earned Geithner critics on both sides of the aisle.  Geithner to his credit does not run from his critics and strongly believes that he and the Obama Administration did everything within their power to stave off financial disaster.

In one of the better interviews Geithner participated in was on ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ (5/20).  In a 42-minute interview that had some light moments, Geithner and Stewart went back and forth on conveying their point of views.

For Geithner, this discussion will always be difficult as populous opinion just sees the bailout as “Big Banks” being saved while “Joe Public” was left to fail and foreclosed on.  In a funny but honest moment Geithner admits to understanding why people are mad, but at the same time saying it was still necessary…

“Because we did this set of frankly pretty offensive, seemingly unfair set of things, we have an economy that is, again terrible, hard, a lot of challenges, but much, much better, than what it would have been.”

Stewart in great fashion stayed on message, his belief is that we would have been better off if the government bailed out the people and focused on saving people from foreclosure on their homes.   That would have led to the people having more money to spend and keep the economy going.

“Economies are perception.  So your reality of, but we avoided a depression, doesn’t fit the reality of people’s perception that they haven’t avoided their own personal depression…”

The best part of this conversation is that both men were open to listening to each other’s viewpoint.

WTF/WTH Wednesdays – Coolout Anthony Weiner….

I was a huge supporter/fan of Anthony Weiner before his setting scandal, and even then I was willing to give him a fresh start with his bid to become the next mayor of New York City. I mean we all make mistakes, so I was open to hear what he had to say and what his platform would be about.

And then more sexting nonsense was discovered, at that point I was done and so should have Weiner’s campaign. Instead he decided to continue to stay in the race and not be forced out.

If Weiner believes he still has a shot, I hope yelling at voters is not part of a strategy he believes is a winner…

Smh, the funny thing is that it was his fiery, confrontational style that made Weiner cool with many Democrats/Progressives.

Except, back then he was yelling at Republican congressmen and not potential voters.

President Obama Must Speak on Syria….

660536-syria-chemical-attack

President Obama must speak on Syria and the reason why the United States has to act against Syria’s use of chemical weapons; and he must speak directly to the people.  Today the president once again briefly commented on Syria and this is just not enough, it’s not enough when you are talking about taking military action that would impact the US not only in the international community but also domestically.

Polls show the American people want to know more before any action is taken, but in all honesty I don’t know if that is going to happen.  The plans are already set with 5 destroyers loaded with more than 200 cruise missiles ready to launch, and action can happen as soon as Saturday with the last of the UN Inspectors leaving Syria.

IMO, the president should wait for the UN Inspectors’ final report and then address the nation presenting what the inspectors discovered.  I fully support military action (limited with no boots on the ground) but no more sending out Secretary of State John Kerry, it’s time for the president to tell us what’s next!!!

Legally Married Same-Sex Couples Can file taxes as Married Couple

Treasury Department and IRS announced that legally married same-sex couples can file their taxes in the same fashion as heterosexual married couples. Even if the couple lives in a state that does not recognize same-sex marriage they can file as a married couple as long as they have been married in a state that does.

Yes same-sex married folks, you now have to deal with your partner knowing how much you REALLY make. No complaining now, you wanted married life and now you got it… HAHA!!

Just kidding, this is great for equality. My religious beliefs may disagree with same-sex marriage but those are my beliefs (which I disagree with) and not something I believe EVERYONE else has to follow or else they will burn in hell.

I wonder if Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the GOP will accuse the IRS of targeting same-sex married couples in order to verify they are filing correctly????

Pres Obama on Syria: “Must Be Held Accountable”

660536-syria-chemical-attack

Tonight (Wednesday August 28th) in an interview on ‘PBS News HourPresident Obama spoke about Syria (Assad Regime) and how they “Must Be Held Accountable” for using chemical weapons against the opposition and civilian population.  The president made it clear that it is not acceptable for any nation to use chemical weapons, it goes against “international norms”.

He also stated that no final decision has been made on what type of action will be taken against Syria, but he let it be known that he is not interested in any kind of “open-minded” conflict.

“I have no interest in any kind of open-ended conflict in Syria, but we do have to make sure that when countries break international norms on weapons, like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they are held accountable”President Obama

As Pres Obama meets with his advisers you would have to believe (or hope) that they are not only discussing military targets in Syria but that they are also talking about what type of retaliation could result in launching missiles at Assad.

With the president setting a “red line” for Syria and Syria now crossing that line the United States has to send Assad a message with force behind it.
