Geithner to Be Nominated as Treasury Secretary
Friday November 21, 3:17 pm ET

President-elect Barack Obama plans to announce his economic team on Monday as part of an effort to reassure markets and will name New York Fed President Tim Geithner his nominee for Treasury Secretary, NBC News has learned.

Geithner was a U.S. Treasury Department official under both Bob Rubin and Larry Summers and has been with Treasury since 1988.

Geithner has helped current Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and his team manage the ongoing Wall Street bailout.

Obama does not care about Federal Reserve

Looks like Obama does not care about the illegal and corrupt Federal Reserve. Oh well, maybe when I am like 70 something will happen.

I would not count of that one Krogoth. I cannot wait for the rest of Obama's economic "dream team" to be announced. Yikes!

This is the line I thought was just classic...

"...He's intimately involved with the situation now in his role as president of New York Fed..."

Yes I have no doubt he IS intimately involved in the situation now.. and has been during the financial raping and pillaging over the past months.
