Conservatives Back Boehner in Calls to Fire Geithner

Seems like just yesterday liberals were the ones calling for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s head. Now that House Minority Leader John Boehner has spoken, however, Geithner’s become a figurehead on the right for what Boehner is calling, “19 months of government-as-community organizer. It hasn’t worked. Our fresh start needs to begin now.”

It’s strange, to say the least, to lump Geithner among any group of lefties attempting to “community organize” anything. For the last year and a half, progressive groups have fretted that he cared more about helping out his old friends and associates on Wall Street than boosting employment through large fiscal stimulus programs.

In theory, one can see a stance where the left and right might meet over their anger towards Geithner, but it would have to come from a decidedly anti-Wall Street agenda. Boehner, on the other hand, is better known for calling for the repeal of financial reform legislation meant to reel in Wall Street, so it’s hard to tell what position he’s coming from.

None of this, however, has stopped Erick Erickson, founder of RedState, from launching a mini-campaign of his own today around Boehner’s idea:

The other day in Ohio, House Republican Leader John Boehner said Mr. Obama should fire Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and economy adviser Larry Summers.

I agree. But what do Democrats in Congress think? Back in 2006, Democrats were demanding to get Republicans on the record about whether President Bush should keep Donald Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense.

It’s time to turn the tables. Go get your congress critter on video. Ask if he agrees with John Boehner that Barack Obama should ask for Tim Geithner and Larry Summers’ resignations.

Oh, and if you get your congressman to take a position on the Ground Zero Mosque, you just might get bonus points and maybe an extra prize!

Post your video to our Facebook page. Each person who does so will get a copy of my new book.

It seems unlikely that “fire Geithner and Summers” will become a popular rallying cry in November, but stranger things have happened. They’re approximately the least radical members of the administration, and their abrupt departure would only lead to a destabilization of the stock market.
