How Geithner Reacted When Learning the Senate Finance Committee Found Problems with His Tax Returns

Former automotive adviser to President Barack Obama, Steven Rattner, is out with a new book Overhaul: An Insider's Account of the Obama Administration's Emergency Rescue of the Auto Industry.

Rattner, co-founder of private-equity firm Quadrangle Group LLC., tells us Treasury Secretary Geithner is exceedingly smart, well-organized technocrat and a “man of few words ... given to occasional bursts of profanity and odd fits of giggling.” He is a workaholic, gym rat and weekend chef. When he learns that the Senate Finance Committee has found problems with his taxes, he continues calmly eating his tuna wrap.

You can act this confident, I guess, if your father ran Obama's mother for the CIA, when they both operated in Indonesia.
