Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner Will Not Serve a Second Term | Fox Business

by on January 26, 2012

Uh oh! I smell another screwed up tax return! Guess all the heat about Mitt’s taxes has the other pols running for cover!

Geithner, who was one of the chief architects of the government’s response to the financial crisis, told Bloomberg Television he’s “pretty confident” Obama won’t ask him to stay on.

“I’m confident he’ll be president. But I’m also confident he’s going to have the privilege of having another secretary of the Treasury,” Geithner said.

The comments, which were confirmed by the Treasury Department, mean a second four-year term in the White House would be led by an entirely different economics team than the one Obama started with. Other high-profile advisers like Larry Summers and Christine Romer have already left the White House.

Geithner, 50, declined to say what he plans to do next, but said it will be “something else.”
