Day By Day by Chris Muir
No one is a Saint with regards to the IRS and the U.S. Senate has NOT made back taxes a deal breaker on the path to confirmation – for example, Timothy Geithner, Secretary of the Treasury.
But, let’s look at a couple of the folks who withdrew their nominations e.g. Tom Daschle and Bill Richardson. There is an underlying issue of corruption and inapprpriate use of government influence/resources in each case. Plus, their nominations were withdrawn by themselves (really Obama pressure) before they were considered by the Senate.
The Obama Administration needs to stop moaning about Republican obstructionism, find some good political appointees and get the Treasury Department staffed at appropriate levels.
