Tom Daschle Resigns Nomination in Disgrace
Today Tom Daschle has removed his name from consideration for the cabinet position of Health and Human Services because of his tax problems. Today Tom Daschle resigns in disgrace.
I am sick and tired of people like Timothy Geithner and Tom Daschle claiming that they just made a mistake. So what if it was an honest mistake? It doesn’t matter, the law is the law and ignorance of the law is not an excuse from the law. That is what I was always taught.
Both Timothy Geithner and Tom Daschle had no intention of ever paying their taxes until they were nominated for positions in President Obama’s crooked cabinet. And why should they have paid them? Evidently the IRS wasn’t pursuing them with the vigor that they would pursue you and I so they would have been foolish to pay the money they owed. Once these two scumbags were up for cabinet posts they decided to pay the back taxes and interest but neither had to pay fines or penalties that could have at least doubled the money they owed the IRS.
While Tom Daschle’s tax delinquency was much greater than Timothy Geithner’s at least he would have had no control over the people from whom he was hiding. Timothy Geithner will. Tom Daschle resigned in disgrace and Timothy Geithner should also resign. He never should have been confirmed.
The only thing that I find more disgraceful than Timothy Geithner and Tom Daschle is that either Barack Obamadid not vet these corrupt criminals or he was willing to over look the criminal activity. Either way President Obama has incredibly horrible judgement.
President Obama needs to learn that Washington DC is not Chicago. When Barack Obama promised to bring change to Washington little did 53% of the voters realize the change he was talking about was bringing corrupt Chicago politics to Washington.
Now that is change we can believe in?
