Subject: Obama gets nailed again
Just when you thought Obama would have learned his lesson about vetting
candidates before he appoints them to his administration, he picks another
tax cheat.

"Obama budget official withdraws for tax reasons
a.. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's choice to oversee
budget and spending reform, Nancy Killefer, withdrew her nomination on
Tuesday because of tax reasons, according to a letter released by the White
House. "I recognize that your agenda and the duties facing your Chief
Performance Officer are urgent," Killefer wrote in the letter to the
president, asking for her nomination to be withdrawn. "I have also come to
realize in the current environment that my personal tax issue of D.C.
Unemployment tax could be used to create exactly the kind of distraction and
delay those duties must avoid."
Just take a look at The Messiah's choices so far:

Bill Richardson, commerce secretary - had to withdraw because he got caught
in a corruption scandal for taking kick-backs in exchange for state
contracts.

Eric Holder, attorney general - helped Slick Willie pardon Puerto Rican
terrorists and one of the biggest financial crooks in history.

Tim Geither, treasury secretary and head of the IRS - repeated tax cheat and
employed illegal as a personal servant.

Tom Daschle, secretary of health and human services - repeated tax cheat who
tried to lie his way out of it.

Nancy Killefer, chief performance officer, withdrew her nomination for "tax
reasons".

Leon Panetta, head of the CIA - left wing liberal with no qualifications for
the job other than an intense desire to destroy the CIA and handcuff
America's intelligence gathering capability.

So what about Obama's campaign promise of a "clean sweep" in Washington and
his pledge to get rid of the crooks, hacks and incompetents?

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, headed the finance and banking committees for
the last two years and ran F-MAE and F-MAC straight in to the ground? Still
in power.

Charles Rangle, chair of the ways and means committee and who writes the tax
policy? Caught as a repeat tax cheat and tried to lie his way out of it?
Still in power.

What about Obama's promise to eliminate wasteful Washington spending and "go
over the federal budget line by line and cut every wasteful and unnecessary
spending item"? He hasn't cut a dime but he did create the biggest pork
barrel, entitlement spending, give away, grow the federal government
spending bill in the history of this country.

Yep, this is certainly change we can believe in.

Proud to be one of the 55,000,000+ Americans who did not vote for your
Messiah.

"Obama said in a written statement accepting "with sadness and regret"
Daschle's surprise request to be removed from consideration. A day earlier,
Obama had said he "absolutely" stood by Daschle in the face of problems over
back taxes and potential conflicts of interest."

Well it looks like The Messiah and The Keystone Kops, just lost a Kop. I
love the above quote from the article you referenced. What was the
"surprise"? Daschle got caught cheating on his taxes last year. The only
surprise was that
The Messiah couldn't ram Daschle's nomination through like he did with
fellow tax cheat, Tim Geitner. I also like the bit about The Messiah
"absolutely" standing by Daschle. Just like he "absolutely" stood by
Jerimiah Wright. Well tell Wright and The Messiah's old white granny to
make room under that bus - here comes Daschle!

So, let's say Obama nominates someone, then it comes out that the
nominee has some issue... say they cheated on their taxes (by the way,
does anyone buy that Daschle's error was some kind of innocent mistake?
I think I saw that it was a "mistake" in the range of $120,000 over
2-3 years - hardly seems innocent to me!).

At that point, what can Obama do that would be "right" in your eyes,
Mike? If he keeps that person, you're gonna post new thread after new
thread - "Obama keeps Tax Cheat as such-and-such!!!1!".

If he drops that nominee, you go the "threw 'em under the bus!!!!1!" route.

I mean, seriously... as predictable as you've become, could you perhaps
drop the names of the poker rooms you frequent regularly?

Cheers.

Mike gets a little too excited at times.

However, you seemed to be focused on him rather than the real problem.

Obama is supposed to do the political thing and that is what he did.

Politics as usual.
