Annnnnd another one bites the dust. The tax-law-impaired Geithner, who proposed a limitless debt ceiling, is reportedly on his way out — before the debt ceiling talks come to a head:

Our @hansnichols reports Geithner is signalling his intention to leave the administration -before- the debt-ceiling showdown.

Cut and run! That’s how it’s done.

Tim Geithner is resigning as Treasury Secretary. That’s good news. The bad news is that Obama will replace him with someone as bad.

But who?

Or not.

People should just shout out nominees for Treasury Secretary now

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) January 3, 2013

There’s an idea! Meanwhile, how’s America taking the news?

Is Geithner resigning because Obama finally asked him to pay his fair share?

— Corie Whalen (@CorieWhalen) January 3, 2013

Wow is Tim Geithner going to enjoy watching the next debt ceiling fight from a beach somewhere far away

@politicalwire Geithner is a smart guy and wants no more part in the WH distortions, lies, and shenanigans.

— Gary Tapperson (@Tappersong) January 3, 2013

Hmmm … doesn’t sound like the Tim Geithner we know.

That’s good advice.

Treasury Sec. Geithner plans to leave by the end of the month. I’d get the hell out of there too if I were him!

— Abby Huntsman (@HuntsmanAbby) January 3, 2013

Woo! Timothy Geithner is LEAVING!

— Jordan Meehan (@JordanMeehan) January 3, 2013

BYEEEEE GEITHNER.

Tim Geithner is leaving the Treasury Dept before talks on the debt ceiling begin. The White House circus show continues.

— Demetrius Minor (@dminor85) January 3, 2013

Lucky us!

In other news: Geithner is leaving so he can devote time to learning TurboTax.

Heh.
