Oh, is this the new Liberal morality? Go ahead and cheat on your taxes,
and just pay up if you're caught? BTW, these well-connected pols didn't
have to pay any penalties.

If these appointees can't handle their own taxes any better than this,
what makes anyone think they could handle a Cabinet level post any
better?

Because they're smarter than we are. Guys like you and me, we thought no
one would be dumb enough to try and claim his kid's summer camp cost as a
business expense. We thought you went to jail for cheating on your taxes.
Well, we were wrong bucko. Tim Geithner cheated on his taxes for four years
and Obama made him Secretary of the Treasury and put him in charge of the
IRS. Now this is fuckin' change I can believe in! Don't pay your taxes and
if you get caught, just say sorry boys, I forgot. Then Obama gives you a
high paying government job. We should have thought of this a long time
ago - hell, we'd have saved a fortune in tax payments.

Wow ... Daschle just withdrew his name. Wow ... so, there is a limit of
some sort.

I wonder why Daschle is just "too much" and Geitner was "just right?"

Apparently, this "no lobbyists" stuff has completely been abandoned.

Now, the story is that there will be "lobbyists" IN the administration ...
it is now said that they will just not "run" the administration. There are
plenty of wordsmiths on RGP that can parse that for us.

It is going to be difficult to beat the Bush folks ... but Obama may be up
for it.

He's comparing the 8 years of failure that was the Bush administration
with the first two weeks of the Obama administration, based on the fact
that three exceptions were made for lobbyists, and two nominees
voluntarily disclosed that they failed to pay all of their taxes...and
you're asking me to SPIN? Hilarious!

For accuracy sake, this comical comparison that he made is not so much
"spin" as "hyberbole which reveals the writer's biases," but the point
remains the same.

I also find it amusing that he can't seem to figure out the difference
between Geithner's tax issue and Daschle's problems (taxes being only one
of them). It's as if the facts are not available to certain people. And
before you ask me to "spin" the facts for you, they are easily available
from several reputable sources online.

that was part of my response to your post in which you brought up the
comparison between the two.

I didn't receive the new RGP ground rules in which you can raise the
comparison between Bush and Obama, but when someone responds by pointing
out how the comparison is invaild, they are engaging in a "But Bush rant."

Is this what you are talking about?

"It is going to be difficult to beat the Bush folks ... but Obama may be up
for it."

You are amazing, Rudy, you really are.

Indeed, it is only two weeks. What will happen next?

You are still stuck in "it cannot get anything but better" mode, rudy. What
will it take for you to see that it just might be getting worse and it can
get worser still?

For me, it is still too early to tell. However, nothing that our new
President promised seems to have any legs.

Between the election and the inauguration I was encouraged by Obama's
statements and most of his appointments. Since the inauguration, I have
growing concerns. Not just the tax-cheat thingy. Also that after
campaigning on changing the culture in Washington, he appoints Daschle
to two top jobs, after Daschle has spent the last two years making
millions influence-peddling, as a political payoff. He's flirting with
re-writing trade agreements in the teeth of a worldwide recession. He's
pledged to take away the right of American workers to have a secret
ballot to be unionized -- has the U.S. government ever taken away such a
right before?

It's not looking good.

I'm on record as saying that every new President deserves at least a
little "honeymoon" time in office before being bashed for his
decisions.

I'm wondering if the time before his inauguration, lining up Cabinet
appointees qualifies as part of the "honeymoon"?

Call me conflicted.

I don't know how much longer I can hold out.

Okay.
You convinced me.

We should at least wait to see what kind of response he gets from the
"International community".

If he gets some positive response from ally and enemy alike, it will
be a big plus for him.

If it's only Business as Usual on the international scene, then not so
much.

nothing? You must not be paying attention to substantive policy, which is
understandable given your fixation on the three former lobbyists who are
now in the Administration (the Bush administration was closer to three
former lobbyists for every non-lobbyist!) and the tax problems of Geithner
and Daschle.

Regarding policy, Obama has already signed a whole slew of Executive
Orders reversing some of the worst policies of the Bush administration.
Now I have no doubt you disagree with Obama on many of these (which makes
your statement that "it just might be getting worse" understandable from
your perspective), but at least start being honest about your feeling
towards the President. You didn't support his candidacy, you didn't vote
for him, you disagree with his policy positions on most issues...this
whole charade you go through in which you pretend to be someone who had
such high hopes for the new President but you now see that he might
actually be worse than his predecessor is silly...nobody who saw your
posts prior to Obama's election will buy it.

My take, but we know I'm just PDS, is that she just today withdrew and the
story is coming out now.

There are over 600 sources, all saying not much of anything else.

That's not completely true. Two proven Democrat tax cheats, Tim Geithner
(sp?) and Tom Daschle, didn't get completely off the hook until The Messiah
appointed them to his cabinet. BTW, does it strike any one else as ironic
that The Messiah appointed a proven tax cheat to head up the IRS? Or that
Democrat Charlie Rangle, who writes the tax policy, is a proven, repeat tax
cheat? It used to be that if a politician was proven to be a repeat tax
cheater, his or her career, was over. Well not under The Messiah's reign.
Now that is change you can believe in.

Remember the Devil's Dictionary? It had humorous definitions like: "Love --
A form of temporary insanity curable by marriage." Now a new entry is
needed: "Tax fraud -- An oversight or simple mistake commonly made by
Presidential cabinet appointees."

This is an interesting developing story. There are more government critters
that have been shown as making this sort of oversight ... the persons,
however, are not part of the Bush administration (this time) ... they are
now paying their back taxes, but they are NOT being charged with "penalties"
... this is significant.

You or I would be paying penalties for such "mistakes." Why not them?

It would be nice if the President would announce that all new incoming
members of his administration would be audited before anyone else ... but
then, if the only penalty would be to pay the taxes uncovered without
penalty, then that would not work either. But it would "sound good."

Our new president did not run his campaign on a "business as usual" set of
promises.

The first few days of the new administration seems to be SSDD ... we won and
we now get to do all the things that we said we were going to "change."

The only change, so far, is the name of the recipients of government
largess; otherwise, politics as usual. Is this what we were promised?

We only thought the Bush administration was selling us down the sewer ...
this new group has improved the system already.

I had a lot of hope for the new President. I did not really think it would
be this bad this quickly ... I admit I am being proven wrong.

Where are the RGP troops that deplore this sort of thing?

Where is the media on these continuing shams?

Or do they only deplore it when it is Bush that is the perp?

Seems that way.

Now you've got to be kidding pickle. These guys were totally in the tank
for The Messiah through out his campaign. Do you think they're going to
start criticizing him now and make themselves look like complete idiots?
Not a snow ball's chance in hell will the mainstream liberal media speak out

You are talking about frothing-at-the-mouth, hate mongers suffering from
severe Bush Derangement Syndrome. Look at Democrat John Conyers - he want's
to charge Bush as a criminal even though there is no legal basis for it and
70+% of the American people don't want it and think it would damage the
country. Of course if Conyers is so hot to bring criminal charges, he might
start with his wife who is being investigated for corruption. Look at the,
old time Washington insiders, tax cheats, crooks (Bill Richardson) and
pro-terrorist apologists (Eric Holder) Obama picked for his cabinet. Look
at the disgraceful, pork barrel, welfare, entitlement spending, social
engineering bill Obama is trying to force on the American people, disguised
as a stimulus bill. There is no "change" here. This is just corrupt,
partisan, politics as usual. Obama is proving to be even worse than I
thought he'd be.
