Makes perfect sense! If any rat can see what's coming ahead, it would be him!

Quotes From The Article:

"Geithner, 49, has told associates that he needs a break from government service after dealing with the turmoil that followed the collapse of Wall Street firms including Bear Stearns..." HAHAHAHA!.......He needs a break? He's the worst Treasury Secretary in History! He's leaving before he gets the boot because he's an incompetent boob.

"If Geithner does leave the administration, Obama would be losing a member of his economic team who understands Washington institutions and the New York banking world as well as the intricacies of the Chinese economy. HAHAHA---Bloomberg Shill Comment!

Maybe His Successor Could Be Dominic Strauss-Kahn

To be replaced by another corrupt banker

His house still on the market? Maybe Timmy will have time to remodel the bathroom and host open houses on the weekend.

Treasury Secretary leaving...

Treasury Secretary leaving is a scene right out of the movie 'Deep Impact'.

Interesting times we live in.

He's quitting now because he

He's quitting now because he thinks he is going to be safe when we put all these criminals on trial. Not likely.

He really seems to believe his own rhetoric

I believe he and those with him will go down on the ship still singing this same song. "We SAVED the economy! We're HEROES!"

Make sure you're approved for options trading

It might be a good time to check your trading account and make sure you're authorized for options; sure feels like the top of that first long leg up the roller coaster, to me.

They told us he was the only

They told us he was the only human on earth who understood TARP and therefore the world would end if he wasn't there. Guess TARP bought up all the toxic assets and now his work here is done. Great job, happy days are here again.

Now he's going to stick around so he can do us all the service of whining on behalf of the bankers until congress votes them a credit limit increase. Good grief. Megalomania sure is rampant these days.

Someone on the board (uptofreedom?) called this a "sucker's rally" about two weeks ago. I think S&P1310 was the call if I remember. I figure light holiday volume should make everything go up tomorrow but who knows. Today was the end of QE2, I told myself I'd take a small SPY short today and I did at 132. Same with a Euro/USD short (long EUO). If something big is going to happen it'll probably do it in the next week or two while the next phase of Fed policy (do nothing) is rolled out.
