‪Flashback: Timothy Geithner says no risk of U.S. losing it’s AAA credit rating‬‏

FLASHBACK: Wasn’t it just this past April that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said that a downgrade wasn’t going to happen? “No risk” he said:

There is no chance that the U.S. will lose its top credit rating, Geithner said, forcefully disputing the notion that S&P or other ratings services might downgrade U.S. bonds from their current AAA rating.

“No risk of that, no risk,” Geithner said on the Fox Business Network, on April 19, 2011.

“Washington is a hard place to read. And it’s hard for people to look past the political rhetoric and try to understand whether the leadership of Washington is going to take the tough steps necessary to get ahead of this problem,” the Treasury secretary explained. “I think the prospects for a bipartisan agreement are better than they’ve been in a long period of time. Of course, we have to turn that into action.”
