Obama dispassionately assesses Geithner [2]:

"I think Geithner is doing an outstanding job," Obama told host Jay
Leno in an appearance taped for Thursday night. "He is a smart guy. He
is a calm and steady guy. I don't think people fully appreciate the
plate that was handed him."

I don't think Obama knows how long he's been working in the kitchen [3]:

As president of the New York Federal Reserve Bank from
2003 to early 2009, Geithner worked with Treasury Secretary
Henry Paulson [4] and Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke [5] from the start
of the credit crisis. He helped arrange both the takeover of
Bear Stearns Cos. by JPMorgan Chase & Co. [6] last March and the
government rescue of AIG in September.
