Obambi sure knows how to pick them! First one tax cheat (Tim Geithner), then a second (Tom Daschle), then a third (Nancy Killefer). Who knows if this one is clean or if he is a tax cheat like the other three?

I take this as a personal incentive to cheat as much as I can get away with on my taxes from now on.

At least Daschle and Killefer had the decency to withdraw. That pr!ck Geithner got confirmed. The guy is supposed to be treasury sec'y - and thus the head of the IRS, the tax enforcement and collection arm of the US government. You CANNOT have a guy who totally blew off paying his payroll taxes in that position. It is unthinkable in that it eats away at any credibility he has. It is also demoralizing to the rank and file at the agency.

Why would we want a tax cheater as head of the Treasury, who oversees the IRS? There's no one else in the whole U.S. capable of running the Treasury except for him? Highly unlikely.

Oh sure, he's just too friggin important. Then let's just quit this bogus charade of "equal under the law" and let the elites "at his level" do whatever the fcuk they want.

Sorry, I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet.

And all this nonsense about "his skills being essential" -- oh BS. As DeGaulle always liked to say "the graveyards are full of 'indispensable' men"

Is this the kind of guy - one lacking completely in integrity and isn't even ashamed of it in public - we should have in times of crisis? WTF! Obambi should have found someone else.

Nellie, this is a Bulgarian forum - no one knows who those people are!

Bottom line is that Americans will end up building their Socialism, and we in BG will continue to privatize - ever thought you'd see the roles reversed?

"Nellie, this is a Bulgarian forum - no one knows who those people are!"

Talk about yourself, boyfriend!

This is an English speaking forum. Everyone knows who Obambi is.

By the way, 10+ days into his presidency, Obambi came on TV today to say "I screwed up". Is he serious? How unprofessional for a president to use such language!

Well, he did screw up, and now he should correct his mistake by replacing pretty boy Tim Geithner for treasury.
