Yes we can-can: the Pointless Misters in Washington

Think we can't continue the breathtaking scope of political duplicity and malfeasance epitomized by the Bush Administration? With the appointment of Geithner, Summers, and Rub(it)in, the Obama administration says "Yes we can".

Can we name the man named the #8 crook in America by a MarketWatch poll (that would be Robert Rubin)? "Yes we can".

Can we put in charge of the UStreasURY , and thereby the IRS, a man, Geithner, who "neglected" to pay in taxes more than most of us make in a year? "Yes we Can".

Can we appoint a man as Economic adviser someone who thinks exporting America's manufacturing base overseas so as to save on healthcare costs is economically mandated and encouraged, as Jabba-the-Hutt Summers has opined? "Yes we can".

It's change we can believe in; the bills, we're not so sure about.

No wonder the Republican House minority has a Boehner.

Darling stated, "We have a clear view that British banks are best managed and owned commercially and not by the government. That remains our policy."
That is a mind-boggling admission of failure. Banks managed and owned commercially have brought the global financial system to utter ruin. Debauched, incapacitated and completely at a loss of how to generate capital, they are on a life-support system by a government that insists they're doing a fine job of running themselves (right into the ground, as it turns out).
