The Left Wing-Republican Anti-Geithner Tag Team

Whoa!  It appears that Republican mainstream strategists have identified Treasury Secretary Geithner (along with Larry Summers) as the weakest links in the Obama Administration's overall vulnerability.

MarketWatch reports:
President Barack Obama should call for the resignation of both Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers, the head of the White House's national economic team, House Minority Leader John Boehner said Tuesday.

"President Obama should ask for -- and accept -- the resignations of the remaining members of his economic team, starting with Secretary Geithner and Larry Summers," Boehner (R., Ohio) said in an economic address to the City Club of Cleveland.

The comments came as Republicans prepare their economic line of attack ahead of mid-term elections for Congress.
This coincides with an attack from the left that appears to be a strategic attack from pro-Elizabeth Warren forces.

If Geithner is forced out, it would obviously show further weakness in Obama's presidential skills. That's what Republican operatives are looking at. But, although Geithner is not the kind of guy a girl would want to take home to introduce to the parents, the damage that he can inflict on the economy at this point is minimal relative to what a replacement would do. Republicans would do more damage to the economy by working to get him bounced, because of any likely replacement. And also because it would remove Geithner whispering anti-Elizabeth Warren  thoughts into the President's ear.
What needs to happen is more light being shed on nudger, and professional groper, Cass Sunstein.

If there is a guy that needs to be forced out of the administration, it's Sunstein. It is really not clear what the super-secretive Sunstein is up to, but you can be sure he is running multiple 'nudging' efforts and they are all up to no good. Time to shed some sunlight on Sunstein, and forget about this short-term Republican oust Geithner thinking that plays into the hands of the extreme Left Wing pro-Elizabeth Warren forces.
