I debated whether or not I would post this, because it’s just so doggone depressing. But it’s also refreshing to hear this coming from someone in the administration. Yesterday Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, when asked the question how long this recession will continue, he responds … oh why should I spoil the surprise video below the fold.
For those of you who’ve been out of work for a long time you might want to skip this. The Treasury Secretary, the man at the helm of this recovery, and at least partly responsible for the mess that we are in (see Reckless Endangerment) has a brief moment of candor. Speaking with David Gregory on Meet the Press Geithner tells the American people that this is going to be a long tough slow recovery. It’s going to be hard harder than anything you’ve ever experienced.
Hope and change. How long before the American people realize when they elected the young president they were going to get neither? 2013 can’t come fast enough!
