Timothy Geithner has followed the of the messiah, Barack Hussein Obama.
In a speech to the Economic Club of Washington, Geithner said:
We bear a substantial share of the responsibility for [the global economic crisis.] . . . Although this crisis in some ways started in the United States, it is a global crisis.
Whew! Thank God (or is it “Thank Obama” these days?) someone else is stepping up and laying blame for the world’s woes at the feet of the horrible, evil Americans.
Geithner went on to say something I found rather stupid. He said:
Never before in modern times has so much of the world been simultaneously hit by a confluence of economic and financial turmoil such as we are now living through.
Perhaps I am being picky, maybe it is because my grandparents and dad (who is still alive) told me their stories, but is the Depression now considered ancient? As far as I can tell, what is happening now is nowhere near as bad as what took place in the 30′s.
