Treasury has no nominees even named for positions below Treasury Secretary

This is pretty amazing.

Nazareth's withdrawal from consideration comes as critics say Geithner's lacks the senior staff he needs to make critical decisions about the financial crisis. Not one of his top 17 deputies has been named, let alone confirmed.

Without senior leadership, lower-level Treasury employees can't make decisions or represent the government in crucial conversations with banks and others. . . . .

Ted Mack is smiling...it's Amateur Hour on an international stage.

Actually, I couldn't imagine why someone would want to work for Geithner in the current straits he is in. It looks to me like things are going to devolve into a collosal mess and a goat will be needed...why take that kind of risk?

Or, perhaps we are not all socialists yet and Geithner/Obama et. al. can't find anyone willing to implement their plan.

Either way, it is pretty appalling and just another sign that Obama life of using words to do the work, rather than sweat or taking risks on his own business, does not qualify him for POTUS.
