Tim Geithner Retracts…the Truth?

UnknownShow of hands, how many thought that former Treasury Sec. Tim Geithner was a little reptilian #ObamaTool?

Well, see how wrong you can be?

Fox News:

Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner claims in his new book that the White House on more than one occasion tried to put words in his mouth or outright asked him to bend the truth. 

In his memoir, “Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises,” Geithner recalls a Sunday talk show prep session in 2011 during which top White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer wanted him to say Social Security “didn’t contribute” to the federal deficit. Geithner wrote that he objected. 

“It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute,” Geithner wrote, explaining his own reasoning. “Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before. He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security.” 

After the anecdote began to generate attention on Monday, a source close to Geithner clarified to Fox News that the former secretary “does not believe he was encouraged to go out and mislead the public on the Sunday shows.”

Okay, Tim Geithner is a little reptilian dweeb, after all, but the important thing is he told the truth before he finally caved in and told same kind of lie the other administration jackboots have been telling since Barack Obama solemnly swore to faithfully preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

Maybe if we could just disappear that page in his new book somehow, then all the other #ObamaTools can say, There goes Fox News again, mischaracterizing the most transparent administration in history.
