Offending our Friends

I see that our Treasury Secretary, Tim "Turbo-Tax" Geithner, decided to share his financial wizardry with the Europeans.  They were not terribly impressed:
"I found it peculiar that even though the Americans have significantly worse fundamental data than the euro zone that they tell us what we should do and when we make a suggestion ... that they say no straight away."
"We can always discuss with our American colleagues. I'd like to hear how the United States will reduce its deficits ... and its debts."
