Obama's friends get the money; Hillary's friend Geithner gets the blame
I read that IHT article (link below) in Feb (well, I read it at the NYT site) and thought it clearly a set up for Geithner as a bad guy and Axelrod (!) as a good guy. Very puffy, all anon sources from inside the Obama camp.
Geithner, whatever his faults, is an ally of Hillary. They were planning to work together on the international economy crisis. (Hillary to tell Geithner what the US policy should be.)
In Feb Axelrod sets up Geithner as a bad guy ... now they use him as a scapegoat.
Typical Obama tactic: Obama's fat cat friends get the money, Hillary's friends get the blame.
