Look in the Yellow Pages under “book-keeping services”, or “tax-preparation services”. If you’re prepared to splurge a bit, look under “accounting services”.

Do they not see that the guys is simply disregarding all precedent and law. He’s a tyrant. Right now they should be building a case, at least rhetorically for impeachment.

Kudlow gave the same review of Lew on his show last night. He pulled no punches.

“Completely Unqualified” ....so, how is that different from every single other person, including the asshat in chief, involved in this miserable clowncar excuse for a government?
