ATLANTA— A whopping 85% of Americans are either “outraged” (59%) or “bothered” (26%) by the massive bonuses about to be paid out by AIG. It’s rare you see something about which so many Americans can agree. And it is obvious that this is manifestly a Barack Obama problem and not a George W. Bush problem. For a young president who has been all too eager to pass the buck of the economic crisis to Mr. Bush, Mr. Obama has finally had to accept the buck for this one.
Is the public outrage justifiable? And should Tim Geithner resign?
