Obama...I'm starting to wonder

I have never liked Obama. I could never like a liberal. Its not the man, its the liberal thought process that boggles the mind. One thing about Obama. He's not stupid....until now!

Wouldn't you have thought after the first screw up he would have investigated these people more thoroughly before announcing any more embarrassing appointments? If this were a Republican administration the media would have a field day!

There certainly are two sets of rules in the IRS. One for them.... One for us.

Leno said. "They think IRS satnds for I'm Really Sorry!"

1. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, had to withdraw weeks earlier because of an investigation into alleged ''pay-to-play'' politics at home.

2. Timothy Geithner belatedly paid $34,000 in back income taxes, and $8,000 in interest. He was eventually confirmed as treasury secretary. No Fine.

3. Nancy Killefer, who was nominated to a top budget post but had failed to pay unemployment compensation taxes for domestic help and had a lien placed on her home as a result. She asked Obama to withdraw her nomination. No Fine.

4. Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination to be secretary of health and human services. Daschle, a former senator, last month paid more than $140,000 in back taxes and interest, most of it owed for his chauffeured luxury car, which he enjoyed as a loan from a private-equity firm he advised. He also reported that he had earned $5 million in two years, largely from industry groups. No Fine.

5. A Senate committee abruptly canceled a session to consider President Obama's nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis to be labor secretary in the wake of a report saying that her husband yesterday paid about $6,400 to settle tax liens against his business -- including liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years. No Fine.

Rangle's not directly invovled in this but he forgot to pay his taxes also.

"President Obama has asked the Senate to cut $50 billion from the economic stimulus plan. Yeah, Obama says the government will no longer need the $50 billion once everyone in his Cabinet pays their back taxes." --Conan O'Brien
