what a great guy he is
Giethner not vetoing the haircut would have cost the US Government nothing -- it just would have angered the banksters who own the government. But loaning the Irish $50 billion would be no problem were it not for the debt cap. But the histrionics over raising the debt ceiling are likely to drag on towards August until or unless the Dems again cave on sanity, and even if they do, the self styled "fiscal conservatives" are likely to howl at "foreign aid"! Perhaps he can get Ben and Timmy to figure a way to slip a loan to Ireland that is similar to the AIG bailout. That is probably your best bet.
As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
