The IMF needs to set up a leadership plan with its boss "obviously not in the position" to run it, Tim Geithner says in his first comment on Dominique Strauss-Kahn's arrest. Jockeying is already under way, with emerging-markets nations stumping for their representatives, Europe wanting a continental, and the U.S. still the fund's biggest single shareholder. (IMF news)

    Does anyone else have a problem with the head of the French Socialist Party staying in a suite that's $3,000 per night?

     

    He should have spent $500 for the room and gotten a Spitzer girl with the difference.

     

    The hubris is just disgusting.

    We're paying for that $3,000 a night hotel room with fringe benefits. Apparently this guy has been raping maids for some time and the IMF just stood by and smiled.

     

    Get out the axe. Do we need an IMF?

    Can someone make a case for the IMF when the US is really the banker behind it along with a few other large economies?

     

    This is similar to the UN which is a zoo funded primarily by the US.

    I recommend Paul Wolfowitz, just for spite.

    Its the perfect time to merge the IMF and the World Bank. It would save a lot of money too! But, I am sure it will not happen, not yet anyway. So sad.

    A real man admits when he is wrong and so I will do so. I was wrong because we finally found a criminal banker that Geithner won't defend. I always thought he defended all criminal bankers.
