The boss and Glenn Beck remind us today that Geithner has a few other problems on his resumé, including the fact that he wrote the original TARP program that got tossed aside like yesterday’s news by Henry Paulson as worthless as soon as Paulson got the money. Geithner didn’t exactly cover himself in glory at the New York Fed, either.
