Ready for more hope and change? Tom Daschle, Obama’s choice for the Secretary of Health and Human Services, has apparently forgotten to pay $128,000 in taxes. Just another honest mistake, right? After all, this is the smoothest transition in the history of the nation, right? Right!
I don’t know how anyone can claim with a straight face that Obama is ushering in a new era of government. We now have on his Cabinet two tax cheaters, one of whom will laughably be in charge of the IRS, and an Attorney General that has no problem getting pardons for terrorists. Senate Republicans would do well to take a cue from House Republicans and let the Democrats confirm Daschle without them. In addition, we have massive and unsustainable spending programs that are disguised as a stimulus bill that really isn’t aimed at stimulating anything, and instead will merely advance liberal agendas at the expense of the taxpayer, all being played out by an adoring media in front of millions of voters who applaud dumbly without a clue as to what’s going on and what consequences will be reaped.
Though I wish he didn’t, Gerald Warner has it right. This will all end in tears.
