Number 1: Geithner is Obama's Svengali of inaction. Throughout the President's first term Tim Geithner has managed to maintain Wall Street's immoral, legal only in standing, status quo by telling the president to "first do no harm." The Treasury Secretary's soothing bromide has been a comfort to the president but it has also been a disservice as its logic is convoluted. Doing nothing is also a decision. The president needs to shuck this false console and understand it for what it is: the devious deception of a con man.
