    Treasury Secretary Geithner's choice for deputy withdraws; department still lacks sen

    Treasury secretary's choice for deputy withdraws: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance
    Five weeks into his tenure, he has yet to name a single top deputy or assistant secretary. This has left Treasury with too few people authorized to make decisions or represent the department in meetings with stakeholders.
    Must have trouble finding Libs that paid their taxes.

    Damn, you beat me to it. I hate you. Anyway, it appears we have more hypocracy from the BO Administration. Apparently a prerequisite for selection is that you be a tax cheat. But it's become such a big "joke" now, that they keep having to withdraw their names from consideration. Yup, it's really sad you know, the same administration that is planning to tax the **** out of us, doesn't feel obliged to pay their own.

    It's as The Clitons said... they expect us to "pay our fair share".
    So long as we do that, "they'll feel our pain".

    No mentions about his socialists partaking except in the "feel your pain" bit.

    Ever wonder who is walking around wearing Bill Clinton's charitable giving... his used underwear?

    Geithner has been a disaster. They just need to cut their loses with the guy and can him. With all that talent they have to pull from that worked in the Clinton Administration they are bound to be able to get someone in there that will inspire some confidence in Wall Street.

    ?

    President Judgment and his band of jovial manic depressives claimed only Geithner could get the Yob done.

    That's how the tax cheat was sold.

    After Obama said Geithner would dazzle them with details I especially enjoyed Geithner's report the following day.

    Very impressive.

    For a fifth grader.

    It makes you wonder how good communication is between Obama and his minions when a critical factor of policy is treated as they did. Add to it the Energy Secretary, no insignificant department, who has admitted to having no clue.

    Just Geithner? Obama's whole cabinet has been a disaster!

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is a total idiot. She's out dicking the dog and appointing a new FEMA director ( it's not even hurricane season ) while Mexican drug cartels are over running Arizona.

    I know I feel safe.

    Well I think most people that are objective would argue that Hillary looks to be on a good start. The FEMA director that was appointed is actually experienced, which is a nice change.

    Geithner thus far has been a disgrace though.

    Hillary stepped in it a few times in 24 hours. But she's a democrat... had it been Bush or Condi... out come the dumb ape bits...

    "Overcharge"... Don't we have anyone that speaks Russian fluently?
    Perhaps they should recall Condi.

    Tongue-tied Clinton
    Tongue-tied Clinton gets warm EU welcome | International | Reuters
    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows on her first visit to Europe as secretary of state when she mispronounced her EU counterparts' names and claimed U.S. democracy was older than Europe's.

    ...
    "I have never understood multiparty democracy.

    "It is hard enough with two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer than European democracy."

    The remark provoked much headshaking in the parliament of a bloc that likes to trace back its democratic tradition thousands of years to the days of classical Greece.

    One working lunch later with EU leaders, Clinton raised more eyebrows when she referred to EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who stood beside her, as "High Representative Solano."

    She also dubbed European Commission External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner as "Benito."

    Parliament President Hans-Gert Poettering was effusive in his praise, saying that with the new administration, the United States and Europe once again "share the same values."

    "What you said mostly could have been said by a European," he told Clinton after she fielded questions ranging from climate change to energy security and aid to Africa and one on gay rights from a participant wearing an "I love Hillary" t-shirt.
    This is normal.
    For once somebody came out and said it.

    Democrats are weak like Eurosocialists and that's why they love Democrats.

    They love weakness.They love people who don't take action.
    They like people like Carter and Clinton... those who talk a lot and say nothing.
    They love people who are set to weaken the United States.
    They will love Obama.

    They love America being knee-capped down to their level.

    The (OLD) Europeans are a very jealous lot.
    They feed it envy.
    The propagate it.
    They nurture it.
    Like pigs... They bathe in it.
    And they use it everyday to make people subservient to the state.
    They are largely a poisoned lot... and it shows here when you read the Eurosocialist drivel.

    They sound just like Democrats.

    Equal results, not equal opportunity is their goal.
    And the state is the Master.
