An actual Democrat would never have appointed Geithner. As Bernie Sanders told Amy Goodman today, Geithner's part of the problem. The economy tanked, in part, due to de regulation, of which Geithner was one of the major cheerleaders. So, why would you appoint a guy who supported the very policy that got us in trouble? Could it be that Obama is an ideologue? The facts don't matter?

It should strike as you as mildly curious that the corporate mainstream media, which sets the agenda on what can be discussed in this country, hardly ever raised questions about the qualifications of a lot of Obama'a appointments.

Many of them---Dennis Ross, Richard Holbrooke, Dennis Blair, Arne Duncan, Larry Summers, Geithner---are part of the problem.
