Train Wreck: Obama Nominates 4th Tax Cheat to Cabinet
The Examiner ^ | February 5, 2009 | Bill Dupray

Posted on 02/05/2009 4:57:06 PM PST by Bill Dupray

Remember that 9 page information sheet all the Obama nominees had to fill out before they would be considered for a job? The press made a huge deal about the new, ethical tone Obama was bringing to Washington. The One was not going to be blindsided like Clinton with a Zoe Baird problem.

And it specifically asked about tax problems.

This is turning into a farce. First we had Geithner, then Daschle, then Nancy Killefer, and now Labor Secretary nominee Hilda Solis also has a tax problem.

More . . .

Her husband has the problem, right?

She can say she didn’t know what he was up to.....it would probably even be the truth in that sort of marriage.

So it seems that all of these folks were not only tax cheats, they also lied when they filled out the questionnaires. If they didn't lie, then Obama nominated them knowing they were unethical candidates. Either way, Obama’s incompetence in selecting these people is breathtaking.

This is EXACTLY what is at issue with these nominations. Glad to see it posted somewhere this way.

Makes me wish that Richardson was still up for his nomination... After all, him and his DollarRunner Express ought to have fit.

If she doesn’t know what goes on in her own marriage how can she possibly be trusted to oversee a cabinet position?

This is freaking hilarious. Sad, maddening and horrid, but he hasn’t even been President for 2 weeks!

And it specifically asked about tax problems

He should know that when you are dealing with Democrats you need a lie detector. "Trust then verify!"

I think he is doing this just to prove what he can get away with. He knows that despite the noise he will never suffer any serious fallout for any of this like a Republican would.

You don’t hear the popcorn companies crying for a bailout now, do you? Business is booming.

Democrats only RAISE taxes.
Democrats don't PAY taxes.

It’s fun to laugh at the Obamoron and point fingers but, actually, this could be a bigger problem than we think. If it’s ok for Democrats to cheat on their taxes and if Harry Reid stipulates that our tax system is “voluntary” (as he did in an interview that made the rounds today), a LOT of people may decide to follow the Obamoron’s Administration “leaders” and not pay THEIR taxes!!

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Hillary believed Bill's lie about the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy until he had his attorney, Kendall, 'fess up to her about Monica.

He's and ex-president and she's the new Secretary of State.

Every elected official in the US should be audited.
Rep & Dem.

They should be forced to pay the fines and the interest and any jail time if called for.

Until then they should not be allowed to spend another dime.
