Notwithstanding his inability to use TurboTax, Treasury Secretary Geithner is supposedly a smart guy... which makes his comments today all the more troubling as an indication of just how stupid he and the rest of the Obama Administration thinks we are...

From his comments, he seems to think that the Tea Partiers ought to be happy with Obama, given that "the Obama administration is paying more attention to deficit and spending concerns than the Bush administration did".

Just how are they paying attention to spending concerns? Raising spending is funny way of showing that one is concerned about spending. And to the extent they're paying attention to the deficit, it is only to justify raising taxes. Does Geithner really think the Tea Partiers are going to be happy with that?
