    Geithner is doing a great job as well as Obama. The Republicans have nothing new to offer just their usual complaints (such sore losers they are).

    in a little-noticed move, the House Financial Services Committee, led by chairman Barney Frank, has approved a measure that would, in some key ways, go beyond the most draconian features of the original AIG bill. The new legislation, the "Pay for Performance Act of 2009," would impose government controls on the pay of all employees - not just top executives - of companies that have received a capital investment from the U.S. government. It would, like the tax measure, be retroactive, changing the terms of compensation agreements already in place. And it would give Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner extraordinary power to determine the pay of thousands of employees of American companies.

    Did you ask him about this???

    In the first picture it seems that Anderson Cooper is with the fist closed, as if you were angry and ready to attack ... it's funny.

    The nay-sayers will be silenced once the Recovery takes place. There are already early signs.

    The far-right's hate for all things Obama is so predictable! But you, people, never explain the "Crash of 2008" as Fed. Chairman Ben Bernake calls it.

    The far-right so-called-fiscal-conservatives were silent while Bush doubled our National debt, hid the cost of the wars and announced last fall that the budget deficit for 2009 ......... would be over $1 Trillion!

    The GOPers complain, criticize everyday on these blogs but offer no solutions of their own!

    What do camera you use? A cellphone camera?

    Not in good resolution, but even so I loved. This shows their desire to bring us the information.

    Good for you Anderson! First the President of the United States, now Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner! Who's next Anderson? The Queen of England? 🙂 I can't wait for the show tonight!

    How many people were required to help Geithner lift up the rug and sweep under eight years of mortgage fraud?

    @Joe G
    What is your solution? Freeze spending and let 6 mil. unemployed Americans starve? Do not allow any more unemployment bennies? put more people on the streets adding to our homeless problems? let the disable suffer more than they are already? keep future generations stupid by not teaching them? increase our healthcare bill by not getting costs under control? Let America's carbon footprint get bigger? Come on let's hear your answer.

    I look forward to the interview with Timothy Geithner.

    I do not agree with some decisions to Timothy Geithner. I will like to hear what he spoke with Anderson Cooper.

    Glad Anderson got the opportunity to interview Geithner. Hopefully, Geithner gave some real answers and not any political double-speak. I'm looking forward to hearing the interview tonight.

    Hi Anderson, Mr. Geithner intrigues me only because I don’t know what to make of him. Aside from being embroiled in recent controversies (AIG bonuses, his taxes), much has been talked about his presentation skills (or lack thereof), and how all of this is impacting his credibility. Maybe he’s more comfortable one-on-one? You got to interview him, so, what do you think? I believe he’s a very smart man, or Pres. Obama wouldn’t have put him in his job. I look forward to the interview so I can hear more from this man.

    Did Geithner give Sebelius a primer on not paying income tax?

    Did Anderson ask him about that guy's response to the question posed in the St. Petersburg Times regarding how we, the people, would solve the economic crisis? (He suggested "encouraging" workers over 40 to retire (freeing up 40 millions jobs) by giving them $1m but with a couple of caveats: must pay off house (or buy house) thus helping the housing/banking markets; must buy a new American-made car thus helping auto industry.) It would certainly be money better spent that continuing to prop up the banks and Wall Street.

    Oh, and did Anderson also ask by chance how any of these bailouts / stimulus plans are actually putting money back into the hands of the American taxpayers, or at least how long we are going to have to wait for it trickle down (if ever) to us?

    Looking forward to this interview - Geithner is a smart cookie, but has been getting a bad rap because of his speaking/presentation abilitites. He appears to be getting more comfortable in his new position and the markets seem to be responding more favorably..

    Anderson seems to have been wanting this interview - glad he was able to get it - should be interesting.

    Wow, check out dude's Wikipedia page.
    Pretty impressive stuff. The Economist

    Definitely not a typical Treasury Sec'y.

    I don't too much care for Geithner. I think he is the wrong man for the job! I hope Anderson really asked him some hard questions and didn't go easy on him.
