More trials and tribulations from the utter FAIL that is the Obama administration:
Adding to lawmaker criticism of U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's performance is a new survey released on Friday showing 42 percent of Americans say he has done a "poor job" handling the credit crisis and federal bailout programs.
The survey by Rasmussen Reports, a polling and electronic publishing firm, found that 20 percent rated Geithner's performance in these areas as "good" or "excellent", while 16 percent were not sure how he was performing. Twenty-two percent rated his performance as "fair".
Rasmussen said these findings were largely unchanged from a survey done in March just after the passage of the Obama administration's $787 billion stimulus plan and disclosure that American International Group would pay out $165 million in bonuses despite a massive government bailout.Investors polled has stronger opinions: 47 percent said Geithner was doing a poor job , while 24 percent said his handling of crisis was good or excellent.
