Rep. Hilda Solis, the proposed Labor Secretary
If President Obama had just taken his own advise and learned Spanish, as he urged American parents to do, perhaps this latest kerfuffel could have been avoided.
As it is, the nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis, Latina from California, to be Labor Secretary may be in trouble because of revelations that her husband was ensnared in tax concerns, an aliment that seems to have reached pandemic proportions among Obama nominees.

I have a higher opinion of my trash guys, who at least do their jobs. and don’t have their paws in my wallet. The barbarians are not only at the gate, but they have been invited into the White House.
It’s about time we got a score card.
Forgot to answer your question: un pinche tramposo del impuesto. And I thought her husband was of Middle Eastern descent.
Can anyone confirm this? I heard that two million people showed up on the capitol mall for the inauguration, but that only 14 of them missed work. Huh?
dang....do any of them up there on the hill pay their taxes? You know, me and you would be in the pokie by now.
Tramposo de impuestos.
You mean the cream of the democratic crop.
Oooops. It’s Friday. One too many virongas.
Kin yew say “Geraldine Ferraro” boys and girls?
I knew yew could.
