Re-Cue the ‘Star Wars’ Emperor Palpatine Quote

Tax Cheat and Proven Liar Tim Geithner, per IBDeditorials.com:

In excusing the creeping federal takeover, Geithner said the government has had to do “exceptional things.” What it’s doing has gone beyond exceptional and entered into the outer sphere of tyranny and possible illegality.

“Outer sphere” is appropriately space-based.

And I’m so sure that Timmy and President ‘Prompter will tell us, like the mythical Palpatine, that “Once this crisis has abated, I will lay down the powers you have given me!”

Oh sure.

Evidence: Banks are volunteering to give back their TARP money, which you must recall was “given,” while Geithner was “only” Hank Paulson’s top adviser, with a (figurative) gun pointed to CEOs’ heads. But now, if the banks are “too big” as Timmy and President ‘Prompter define it, Treasury The Empire won’t let them.

So this is how the leaders of our Founding Fathers’ Republic plan to make it die ….
