Stephanopoulos: holy crap the
Secret Service was going to prostitutes -
only David Vitter can do that!

Stephanopoulos: most people think
we’re still in a recession

Geithner: true but the Bush recession
was really really bad

Stephanopoulos: every spring we slide
back into recession

Geithner: yeah but that was back when
Europe was in trouble

Stephanopoulos: Europe is still in big trouble

Geithner: we’re fucked

Stephanopoulos: you’re a real
ray of sunshine

Geithner: we’re all going to die someday

Stephanopoulos: Nouriel Roubini says
this recovery sucks

Geithner: but we’re making progress

Stephanopoulos: the recession is all
Obama’s fault

Geithner: that’s crap

Stephanopoulos: that could be true

Geithner: America is making more
energy than ever

Stephanopoulos: we’re not making jobs

Geithner: yes we are

Stephanopoulos: but not enough

Geithner: hey maybe you want
the recession back!

Stephanopoulos: Romney says
women lost 92% of jobs under Obama

Geithner: that’s incredibly stupid

Stephanopoulos: is it?

Geithner: Bush fired men and then
the GOP fired teachers

Stephanopoulos: but the number is accurate

Geithner: Republicans caused the
recession in 2008

Stephanopoulos: No!

Geithner: it’s true

Stephanopoulos: that’s not what I heard

Geithner: well it’s true and if we put
the GOPin charge it will happen again

Stephanopoulos: the Buffet Rule is bad
because it would only raise $5 billion

Geithner: that doesn’t make it a bad idea

Stephanopoulos: sure but why bother

Geithner: they can afford it

Stephanopoulos: won’t raising taxes
2% on billionaires wreck the U.S. economy

Geithner: no

Stephanopoulos: but they rich do so
much for us and ask so little return

Geithner: hey we still have a deficit

Stephanopoulos: I think I heard about that

Geithner: the rich pay less taxes than they
have in decades

Stephanopoulos: sweet

Geithner: should we raise taxes
on poor people?

Stephanopoulos: maybe

Stephanopoulos: in 2013 we face Taxmageddon!!!

Geithner: hey Obama wants to cut
taxes for the middle class right now!

Stephanopoulos: can you keep
gas prices down?

Geithner: no

Stephanopoulos: what’s the most
important quality in a Treasury Secretary?

Geithner: a total lack of charisma
and personal charm

[ break ]

Stephanopoulos: Timmy is worried
about the economy

Gigot: we’re growing but it’s really fragile

Roberts: a President benefits from
a strong economy!

Vanden Heuvel: expose the GOP
as roadblocks to adding jobs

Madden: Obama caused the recession

Barnes: lol you idiot

Vanden Heuvel: the economy will never
recover until homes prices are back

Gigot: Obama has failed the middle class!

Stephanopoulos: Obama challenged
Mitt Romney to release his tax returns

Madden: like most Americans he
needs until October to figure out
whether to hide his money in Switzerland,
Luxembourg or the Cayman Islands

Stephanopoulos: It’s a big decision

Roberts: he needs to tell a story where he
isn’t a out of touch rich guy

Vanden Heuvel: Romney looks like
the guy who fired you because
he probably fired you

Madden: Mitt is very worried about
the price people are paying for food

Barnes: lol no one thinks that

Madden: the Buffet Rule will not end the
deficit therefore we should not have it

Barnes: lol like cutting foreign aid you dweeb

Vanden Heuvel: 90% of income growth
has gone to the top 1%

Gigot: if you want the rich to pay more
taxes cut tax rates for the rich

Stephanopoulos: that is so brilliant
