Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. Geithner is not an important part of this story from a European perspective.  Everyone knows the ECB is opposed to all haircuts.  No one here is blaming Geithner for this. At most he undercut IMF efforts to negotiate a slightly more enlightened policy.

  2. I have already argued above that I see the US and the Obama administration as a potential ally against excessive German/ECB inspired austerity policies.

  3. You seem to be trying to overlay a US left/right debate around Geithner on a European discussion of Austerity policies, German ECB obsession with protecting Bondholders, and structural deficiencies in the design of the ECB and Eurozone.

  4. Please stop buttressing your argument with websites I have never heard of making points no one here has ever made. Your argument is with other people!
