White House Not Repeating Early Denial

Digging in and hunkering down seems to be the strategy. Instapundit reports  Business Insider: The White House is Now Refusing to Respond to Chrysler Threat Stories

“By refusing to comment on our subsequent story about additional threats, the White House appears to be backing away from its earlier denial. If the threats weren’t made, why not just repeat the earlier denial? That would be easy enough.”

Michelle Malkin covers the comedic to the hysterical:

” ….the curtains have opened on the most elaborate farce of the year. Welcome, taxpayers, to the Kabuki Theater of AIG Outrage — where D.C.’s histrionic enablers of taxpayer-funded corporate bailouts compete for Best Performance of Hypocritical Indignation.”

If Washington’s new-found opponents of rewarding failure want to do taxpayers a favor, how about giving back their automatic pay raises? How about returning all their AIG donations? How about taking back all the bailout money to all the failed enterprises, from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to AIG, the automakers, and the big banks? Barry? Harry? Nancy? John? Chris? Bueller? ‘Bueller?

Meanwhile the Anchoress calls these antics more than Kabuki:

This is a full-on assault on reality by the office of the Most Powerful Person in the World, fully supported by the pretend-press, and it is alternately tedious and terrifying.

If only there was some one off-stage with cajones and a hook.

I do feel sorry for Geithner under the gun and over estimated.

Michelle Malkin isn’t surprised that Timothy Geithner, newish Treasury Secretary is flailing about:  here:

“With an awkward first television appearance, a bank rescue plan that lacked promised specifics and two restructured bailouts that raised taxpayer risk, Geithner has failed to calm financial markets desperate for answers.”
