    As Geithner looks on, the President reminds the small business owners that it's rude to throw things at the Treasury Secretary.

    And now, Mr. Obama?

  13. Phil, Philadelphia, PA

    Because of a technical glitch, president Obama must use the side of Tim Geithner's head as a teleprompter.

    Mr. President said: will worsen before improving.

    Bernanke,

    The empty spaces in the photo clearly show that Obama still has key positions to fill in his cabinet.

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner spots the AC360 hidden camera and freezes in fear of being caught doing something AC worthy.

    As the President speaks hopefully of a rebounding economy, Geithner contemplates his NCAA bracket.

    I see you out there on AC360.com, trying to think of some clever and degrading caption for this picture; I see you and I know who you are and where you live. Go ahead, DO IT, make my day.

    It's safer to stand back a bit ....... I just told him what AIG have planned for St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

    The secretary quickly learns that an angry stare is not enough to stop the small business owners from shooting spitballs in his direction.
