U.S. Senator Jim Bunning, R-Ky., today spoke the truth about Treasury Secretary-designate Timothy Geithner in Senate confirmation hearings that it seems are really more a formality when it comes to Mr. Geithner.

Brave Senator Jim Bunning Pulls No Punches

At today’s confirmation hearings before the Senate Finance Committee, Senator Bunning said Geithner’s tax problems were not the only problem, but also questioned his ability to extricate us from the banking crisis stating Geithner was involved in “every flawed bailout action of the previous administration.”

Bunning continues the history lesson by saying,

“He went along with the flawed monetary policy decisions of Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke … and he stretched the law beyond recognition to bail out Bear Stearns.”


Senator Bunning was even so bold to accuse the committee of rushing Geithner’s confirmation saying,”This hearing is still rushed, and my staff has had only limited time to access the relevant information”. The Chairman took offense to this accusation and attempted to explain his time decisions once Senator Bunning yields the floor.

Sen. Bunning knows this fight is in a useless cause, but he does it anyway. I love that. Geithner is with out a doubt the guy Dick Cheney would pick for Treasury Secretary, so I don’t see why the left isn’t screaming bloody murder…and here we have a Republican Senator sounding the alarm instead.


The world is so back-wards these days, I expect to look out the window and see pigs flying…

Good Luck!
