Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Bailout Backlash

Hosted by

The Bush Administration may have blundered with its original Wall Street bailout, but Republicans are eager to redirect the finger of blame.  Florida Congressman Connie Mack has called for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to resign. Liberal commentator Megan Dowd wants him to go. The President says he wouldn't let him resign. Is there another way of heading off public outrage?
