An explosive new Rasmussen report screams, “America wants Tim Geithner dumped!”
Washington insiders both Democrats and Republicans (including McCain of course) love him, but we want him gone. The disconnect between Washington and real America on Geithner is startlingly large.
The gang on Capital Hill might be fooled or afraid to say otherwise, but average Americans aren’t. The latest telephone survey tells a very different story. Only 12% of taxpaying Americans have a favorable opinion of Geithner and only 11% said his job performance so far is good or excellent.
Tax cheat Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was appointed without any genuine qualifications. Now only Obama’s incompetence overshadows his own bungling ineptitude.
His “deer in the headlights” reaction to Barack Obama’s recession has exposed him as a fraud. When his tax cheating and employing an illegal alien is added to his inability to improve things, Main Street doesn’t like him and wants him gone.
Rasmussen reports the chasm between Washington and Main Street is huge and irreparable. The Washington crowd thinks Geithner is doing a fine job. More than 3 of 4 have a favorable opinion of him with two thirds saying he is doing a good or excellent job handling Obama’s recession. Three quarters of Americans think otherwise.
Among all respondents, his favorable/unfavorable numbers are sharply different at 24/44, but his “good or excellent” versus “poor” ratings are still worse.
On the question of whether Geithner’s work could be described as POOR, 53% of real Americans tagged Tax Cheat Tim with that rating and NOT A SINGLE politician used it.
Whether Geithner will resign or be fired is now a question of how quickly Obama throws him under the bus, which may be soon. If Obama threw his White grandmother between the Greyhound’s wheels, Geithner should keep his bags packed.
