Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I really don't know where you are coming from on this - or whether you are including me and others here in "the current left".  If there is one thing that intrigues me about this crisis - as seen from Ireland - it is that the left are often more sycophantic than some on the right.  In either case Geithner is a sideshow which has barely emerged in the narrative here.  

If the USA is to make a positive contribution, I see it coming through Obama/Clinton and a wide selection of Irishphile political and administration figures within the US with Geithner understandably more focused on the global players - both corporate and national - and with US based financial interests.  Our main problem is with a resurgent nationalism in Germany and with a disintegration of the Eurozone thanks to an inadequate institutional and policy framework.

What's with your simplistic bad guy narrative?
