Forget hurt feelings; friggin obama is a real bastard.
“This [Warren's genuine fire-brand reformer's zeal] has caused discomfort not only for the president, but also for his top lieutenants, including the boyish man in the too-long jacket at Obama’s right hip, bunched cuffs around his shoes, looking more than anything like a teenager who just grabbed a suit out of his dad’s closet. That’s Treasury secretary Tim Geithner, looking sheepish. Only those in his inner circle at Treasury, though, can precisely read what’s behind that expression: a string of private efforts across the past year to neutralize Warren. The previous fall, Geithner huddle with top aides to develop what one called an “Elizabeth Warren strategy,” a plan to engage with the firebrand reformer that would render her politically inert. He never worked out a viable strategy—a way to meet with Warren without drawing undesirable comparisons—and so, like the president, he didn’t.”
Suskind’s description of Timmy as a sad little man, however, is both eviscerating and emasculating:
“… the boyish man in the too-long jacket at Obama’s right hip, bunched cuffs around his shoes, looking more than anything like a teenager who just grabbed a suit out of his dad’s closet.”
Damn, I can’t wait to get involved in Elizabeth Warren’s senate campaign. If you have any to spare, making a donation to Warren right now will make you feel a LOT better, I promise. The only way the obama culture of throwing women under the bus is going to be stamped out in politics is if we stand up for women like Warren.
