You mean Turbo Tax Timmy?

It does not inspire much confidence that the man in charge of the Treasury got his butt kicked by a tax prep program.

That is the one. He has another press conference tomorrow at 10am EST. Rumor is he is going to suspend mark to market accounting - which is one of the primary reasons we are in this mess to begin with.

But that is what Wall Street wants. We know by now what they want from; TARP, to bailouts, to suspending regulator regulations, they get.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that mark to market is suspended and the markets snap back upward in violent fashion.

I have to believe yesterday was a very disappointing day for our new President and I share his pain.

It was disappointing to say the least. To follow "we've got a heck of a plan for this thing" with "we'll let you know the details when we think we've got it all figured out" was confusing.
