As expected, President Obama will nominate White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew as Treasury Secretary at 1:30 pm ET today to replace Timothy Geithner. While Obama doesn't expect a difficult confirmation process, Lew's candidature has already received opposition from Republican Jeff Sessions, who's a ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee.

    So let me get this straight. Obama never passed a budget in his first term and we are nominating the person in charge of that office to run the Treasury?

     

    No wonder gold and silver are up.
