Obama To Leno: Geithner Doing 'Outstanding' Job

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) -- President Barack Obama says his embattled treasury chief, Timothy Geithner, is doing an "outstanding job."

In a taped appearance on "The Tonight Show", he told host Jay Leno that Geithner is a smart guy who's been handed an incredibly full plate. But he's handling it all with grace and good humor.

Listing the recession, the banking crisis and the need to coordinate with other countries, Obama acknowledged Geithner's "on the hot seat". But he says too many in Washington are trying to figure out who to blame for things -- when they should be focused on fixing them.

    Topping the list for blaming others is Mister 'Outstanding Job' Geithner. One thing for sure is he's not handling the plate given him by the Democrats. The market's in free fall, jobs are being clear-cut like forests, and all he's doing is trying to deflect public ire for his previous actions to everyone he can. America's people need to solve this on their own, not rely on a corrupt, inept, and paper administration.
