First it was Richardson, who accepted a cabinet position knowing full well he was under investigation at the time for awarding a large New Mexico contract to a huge political donor. Now, the Mensa class of 2009, Daschle, Geithner and Killefer, all knowing they were a tax invasion bomb waiting to detonate. Daschle accepted the use of a donated car, which is taxable. Geithner knew he owed back taxes ($34,000.00), and made the government wait until he was nominated to get their just dues. And Killefer was the winner of a $946.69 tax lien on her home in 2005 for failure to pay unemployment compensation tax on household help.
And whatever momentum the Obama administration had garnered post-inauguration grinds to a halt as the new president struggles to get the vetting process egg off his face. "This is a self-induced injury that I'm angry about, and we're going to make sure we get it fixed," Obama said on ABC's "World News."
Would it have so wrong for these clowns to come clean during the vetting process? Here Obama gets elected on the promise of an ultra clean administration, and three paces out of the starting gate, he has to endure the explanations, and forced resignations from these mathematical geniuses. They say the first 100 days are the most critical for getting something done, and the Obama machine is definitely sputtering. A failed vote on his stimulus package, and he will be left with nothing to hang his hat on; only the upcoming expectations of the next gaffe(s) from his Vice President, who already has had to issue three apologies for his loose wise cracks.
The other day, a car was spotted sporting a bumper sticker that read, "Don't blame me....I voted for McCain / Palin." If recent events are any indicator of the next four years, my car will be wearing a Clinton sticker again.
