    Re: Daschle withdraws nomination for HHS job

    It would be nice to have Howard Dean in a position of responsibility. I wondered how long it would take Daschle to get under the bus. It's one thing to overlook a tax payment, but this guy seems to be in the pocket of some big corporate interests.

    It appears that it doesn't take much to impress you. For me, I would be more impressed if he had the brains to not try to shove tax evaders down our throats in the first place.

    I mean come on, the man is the smartest dude in the universe, and didnít he vet these tax evaders before nominating them? Wouldn't that be the smartest man on the block thing to do?

    No Aps, you are still star struck by your perceived change, Obama didn't apologize for making a mistake, his nominees got caught breaking the law and now he's covering up for it.

    Itís amusing; for Liberals itís not about results, itís about how you feel. And if you are Liberal and break the law, then apologize for it, all is forgiven it was a simple mistake that anyone could have made; meanwhile, they impugn Carl Rove and suggest he was the Wiz behind the curtain creating chaos, George Bush suggesting that he should have managed a natural disaster and war without error and Rush Limbaugh for having the audacity of getting addicted to pain killers, and why you might ask, for the simple reason they donít like their political philosophy.

    I think Howard Dean would be a good Secretary of HHS...but only if that job is decoupled from the "health czar" role now that Daschle is out. I do NOT want Howard Dean going up to the hill to meet with congressmen on health care reform, or trying to work with Rahm Emanuel on that. Dean's a great public servant and I'm sure he would be a strong advocate for health care reform...but his personality is not suited to that particular job.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    It would be nice to have Howard Dean behind bars.

    But you will forgive a president who mobilized the military under false pretenses, then allowed 4000 of our men and women in uniform to die, thousands more become injured physically and mentally. Yeh, you have quite a set of morals there.

    When their life hasn't been affected, they don't care.

    Re: Daschle withdraws nomination for HHS job

    While it is good Daschle dropped out. Its already too late.

    The Treasury Secretary is a Tax Evader AND Daschle isn't going to get in trouble for what he did.

    Obama message to the American people in both cases has been 100% clear.

    I wonder if Obama's generosity towards tax evasion will extend to the rest of us when he raises our taxes to hell and gone to pay for the immense amount of spending he intends to change the USA into the USSA.

    BTW it doesn't..your taxes will pay the salaries of tax evaders.


    Much like Clinton Obama is already putting forward a value system that harms society. We're still suffering the effect of accepting outright lies and letting a person lie under oath do to Clinton.

    These are beyond merely not saying you sent arms to x or the usual political stuff. This is base level acceptance of behavior that any average American usually goes to prison for. Its a character flaw.

    With Clinton it was "cover my ass"..with Obama its "glorify my ass".




    ....
    As for the Iraq thing..you guys lost..your going to abandon millions of people to mass murdering teorrist..you have nothing to stand on.
    Oh the civilians!..
    You mean the people whose deaths you use as an excuse to abandon them to those who murder them.

    Your high minded morality is a fraud to shroud the reality of what you intend.
