Tim Geithner Receives His Economic Wisdom From a Crack Pipe

Sorry, sorry, that headline should read "Tim Geithner Allegedly Receives His Economic Wisdom From a Crack Pipe", God forbid I make him cry.

Geithy via Bloomberg and boy is he confident. You could learn a thing or two, America:

Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner expressed confidence that Europe will resolve the debt crisis buffeting the region and said the U.S. economy is strong enough to withstand any fallout.

“Europe has the capacity to manage through this,” Geithner said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital With Al Hunt,” airing this weekend. “And I think they will.”

Geithner, 48, said he doesn’t think the European turmoil will hurt U.S. growth because “our economy is getting stronger. We’re seeing a lot of strength, improvement and confidence.”

Can he say that to Bloomberg with a straight face?

I shouldn't be too harsh on Timmy, he must be stressed out from his little tour around the world. It's very easy to say stupid ass shit when you're tired.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
