What Geithner won't acknowledgeOctober 18, 2010: 9:42 PM ET
Speaking to Sequoia Capital's Michael Moritz in Silicon Valley on Monday, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was articulate, even warm, obviously intelligent and quick on his feet. But he didn't stray far from his script.
When Moritz asked Geithner to address the perception that the administration is anti-business, Geithner was ready. "I'm aware of that perception," he said, identifying the vilifying rhetoric in Washington, D.C., as one explanation for that perception.
Yet, when pressed, Geithner once again refused to acknowledge that the Obama administration's history of insulting the business community is counterproductive.
