Marcus tells CNBC: Administration writes ‘checks for $10 million the way I write checks for breakfast’

ATLANTA — Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus on Friday took Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to task as part of a hardcore criticism of the Obama Administration, saying, in part, “they write checks for $10 million the way I write checks for breakfast.”

Marcus railed on the administration, saying their policies are making the environment difficult for businesses.

“My solution is that you take a guy like Timothy Geithner and put him in a new reality show,” Marcus is quoted as saying in a report posted to CNBC's website.

“It's called 'Timothy Geithner Does Small Business', something like [the porn movie] 'Debbie Does Dallas', and it ends up the same way,” Marcus told the network. “Basically, what they're doing to small business is very similar in this case [to what 'Debbie' did to Dallas.]”
