Again let me ask in the it wasn't me game currently going on in our Capital....

If Tim Geithner as head of NY Fed was not responsible for the AIG Bailout....

And Ben Bernanke as head of the Fed was not responsible for the AIG Bailout...

And Hank Paulson as US Sect Treasury was not responsible for the AIG Bailout...

Who exactly was?  Edith in accounting?

Further, if you folks are *SO* important to the health of the US economic system.  And *SO* irreplaceable in your roles, that the mere thought of you being replaced brings vieled threats by Wall Street strategists of great dislocations in the markets - what exactly are you doing each and every day?

You apparently are not involved in any major decision - or at least the ones that are politically harmful.  Yet we cannot replace you because this country is now run on, not what is good for the long term in the eocnomy, but instead what will not upset the markets.

What a bunch of losers.  The buck stops here?  Taking responsibility for your organization?  Anyone?

*crickets chirping*

As I think of your shameful work today, I think of the Family Circus cartoon where Not Me did it.  But on second thought a much better representation can be found below.

Sorry for interupting your busy day gentleman - I'll let you get back to doing important work; that you won't be responsible for in a few years.
