Michele Bachmann: “I Call on President Obama to Demand Resignation of Secretary of Treasury Timothy Geithner” (Video)

Michele Bachmann reacted to the news tonight that S&P downgraded the US credit rating. Bachmann was on with Greta Van Susteren.

“This president has destroyed the credit rating of the United States through failed economic policies and his inability to control government spending… President Obama is destroying the foundation’s of our economy one beam at a time. I call on the president to seek the immediate resignation of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and to submit a plan with his list of cuts to balance the budget this year, turn the economy around and put our people back to work.”

Bachmann calls for Geithner’s resignation:

    The Geithner Clan has deep roots in Obama. Little Timmy won’t get fired.

  • rbosque

    It’s a good start.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    I’ll be impressed when someone calls for Obama’s resignation …

  • toongoon

    I don’t Michelle puts that stinky drawers fear in zero like Mrs. Palin does.

  • Conservative Ken

    This woman should be our next President!

  • Atlas Shrugged

    The left will ignore the administration’s responsibility for this, and throw everything they have into blaming the Tea Party. It will be laughable ….

    It’s like blaming the fire department for arriving too late, when you set the fire yourself.

    Heh, it’s more than Geithner that needs to resign.

    And you can bet that there’s more economic woes coming our way. If the S&P went thru with downgrading us, what’s to stop Moody’s? They threatened to do the same as S&P.

    We’ve been at the precipice. We’re no longer at the precipice, we’re over the edge, and while both parties and Congress share responsibility, Obama has a larger measure of blame.

    This is his albatross.

    Our economy will not pick up by Nov. 2012. Obama can outspend any competitor and I bet he’ll still lose. Why? Because he’s lost most of the important votes that got him elected in the first place, that important swing vote. The muddling, moderate middle independents.

    Bachman rocks and she is 100% correct however, as everyone knows, Tax-cheat and Beavis look-alike isn’t going anywhere. The media will continue to cover for the Narcissist-in-Chief and make fun of Bachman.

  • toongoon

    Another reason is that the misery factor is going to be so much worse by next summer. zero can’t pass the blame on that.

  • Bill

    Bachmann is just being a big shot. Her own party doesnt listen to her why should anyone else. The woman is a religious fanatic and her mouth is unneeded in the congress

  • noislamocommie

    Both chicks + DeMint are the true conservatives (that means enforcing immigration laws and not supporting the Institution of cheap labor) and snap about running the budgets and economy.
    The rest not by a long-shot.

  • Multitude

    noticing the poo-slinging-progressive-monkeys blaming the tea party on twitter for the downgrade. having spent a few hours reading thru Carl Schmitt and then Peter Sloterdijk on aspects of how the Progressive National Socialists blamed the Jews for Weimar inflation and economic downgrades, it was rather ethereal seeing the Bammer’s lil’ brownshirts off on a contemporary jew-hunt tonight.

    hopefully this should reaffirm why we cannot afford people like McCain, Hatch, McConnell, etc. on our team as we stand up to tyranny. these fools will compromise their way to the gas chamber, only too eager to delay their termination by a few days by handing over the rest of us.

    Lets see WTF or Bachmann, oh who to vote for, someone who looks to fundamentally change America, and see’s the Constitution an impediment to that agenda or someone who loves America and believes in that same document. Seems to be a no brainer unless your a friggin Commie.

  • big L

    The Men candidates won’t say a word on all this controversial stuff.It is Palin and Bachmann that have the guts,and are hardly covered.
    We will be so disappointed in the GOP campaign. But it won’t matter as there will be no coverage of the GOp candidate. HE/she will be made out to be a fool if there is any coverage at all.

    Also Sweetness-and-Light Blog posted that Tim Geithner’s father-Peter and Obama mother-Stanley Ann, worked together doing “micro-loans” to Indonesian women. and at least one Inspector General looked “askance” at the plan. It was Ford Foundation money thru the UN.

    I hear she has MIGRAINES or something.

  • arnonerik

    If Obama had any shame he would resign without being asked.

  • greenfairie

    Heck, he should be in prison for this. Obama too.

  • Molon Labe

    We need all who voted for the DEBT/SPENDING Bill to resign. All of them.

  • bigkahuna

    I wont worry about headaches if you dont worry about cigarretes and cocaine.

    Bill Those that dont listen to her are just as guilty as the liberals for the debt, deficis, and this pathetic economy and downgrade.

    You hate her for wanting the govt to actually live within its means? follow the constitution? Act responsibly? What planet are you from and what world is that an evil thing ? Your not only a moron but youre a braindead liberal flake who hasnt got an ounce of common sense.

    Tell us all what your wonderful prescription for success is ? Liberals never want to be judged on their results just their effort or lack of it and their intent.

    Liberals have not submitted a budget( their actual job) in over two years. They spend money they dont have and wont have for years and years. They blame others for their mistakes and problems and then tell us how great they are. They rarely offer any solutions and then deride those that do. You are pathetic . Liberals are parasites who live off of their hosts and they are slowly killing it. They want to blame the host for not feeding them forever when the parasites grow in size and number.
