Remove Bad Politicians

Let's be clear: bad teachers should not be in the classroom. But while it is popular for politicians, our President included, to want to get rid of poorly performing teachers, the mindset doesn't appear to be appropriate for, say, Timothy Geithner.
President Obama has said about teachers, " Let me be clear: if a teacher is given a chance but still does not improve, there is no excuse for that person to continue teaching. I reject a system that rewards failure and protects a person from its consequences. The stakes are too high."
Yet Mr. Geithner, the economic adviser who has overseen an ongoing recession and the downgrade of our credit rating, will continue through 2012 according the Washington Post.
Hypocritical of our President? You be the judge.
