DeMint (R-Confederacy): ‘Geithner Should Get Canned’
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-Confederacy) - who once said that “You can’t be a fiscal conservative without being a social conservative first.” - is calling for Tim Geithner’s scalp:
“The President should demand that Secretary Geithner resign and immediately replace him with someone who will help Washington focus on balancing our budget and allowing the private sector to create jobs,” he said in a statement. “For months he opposed all efforts to reduce the debt in return for a debt ceiling increase. His opposition to serious spending and debt reforms has been reckless and now the American people will pay the price.”
Considering he never uttered a peep after multiple debt ceiling raises during the GWB administration, that takes some chutzpah.
