After meeting with the British Prime Minister (note to staff, he does NOT like to be called Gordo, apparently), Big Guy got some bad news from across the pond.
Seems one of TATUS's nominees to be a deputy Treasury Secretary has skeletons in his closet that the vetting team didn't tell The Boss about. Beyond the 15 skeletons, it also turns out he was the mastermind behind the home mortgage plan a decade ago that has us in this economic mess today. Combined, those two facts should make him unconfirmable. You'd think.
But we look at these things a bit differently here in the Obama Administration. See, thanks to this embarrassing ovesight by our team, we now know that Neal Wolin has a killer's instinct, perfect for a Treasury Secretary incapable of not looking like a deranged killer in official photos. And who will want to cross him on policy differences? And who better to fix the financial disaster that was created, than the man who created it?
Frankly, with this kind of impressive resume, I'm surprised we aren't giving Wolin a more important job in our Administration. I'd be shocked if he isn't confirmed by unanimous consent.
