Maybe conventional wisdom is wrong, and a contrarian view is needed on the Geithner nomination. In fact, I’ll even go so far as to defend him. After all, if it’s good enough for Schmuck Schumer to defend Geithner, it’s good enough for me.
Given his past history of tax payments, perhaps he was merely protesting against our progressive tax structure, and if confirmed as Treasury Secretary, he would lobby BHO and Congress to implement a more equitable and simplified tax system.
Never let it be said that I don’t believe in Hope and Change.
