Here's the list:
Nancy Killefer (Chief Performance Officer nominee), Tom Daschle (Health and Human Service nominee) and Timothy Geithner (Treasury Secretary).
Obama can't find top Democrats as nominees who can pay their taxes on time? No wonder Democrats are fine with increasing taxes on everyone, they don't pay themselves and then expect everyone to forgive them for their "mistakes."
Here are a few facts; when Republicans lost Congress the deficit was falling and was about $215 billion. Since the Democrats hold of the purse strings the deficit has ballooned to $1.7 trillion and climbing.
Now tell me what is similar about the two? The HYPOCRISY you seem confused about is the blatant hypocrisy from Liberals and Democrats who desperately point at Bush and complained about his deficits but now rabidly defend the astounding amounts of deficits we see and then claim in defense that Bush did it too.
Letís do some math; $1.7 trillion divided by $215 billion is a 790% increase in deficit spending.
Good lord, are you really this deep in denial?
You seem to think because the Dems spend more, it was ok for the irresponsible spending of the Republicans. That is denial.
Amounts aside, Republicans did irresponsible spending overseas, while the Dems now are doing irresponsible spending at home.
No matter where it is going, it is IRRESPONSIBLE. Neither side is clean. That is the truth.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Youíre the one who keeps brining up Bush as if this somehow excuses Obama and the Democrats who have increased deficit spending by over 700%.
I want to address this separate:
You can suggest that it is irresponsible, but that is pure partisan OPINION on your part but cannot be substituted for a coherent intellectually honest argument.
Billions were spent post 9-11 including tax cuts that helped get the economy back on itís feet after this devastating attack. Billions were spent in the wake of the catastrophe of Hurricane Katrina.
Your desperate attempts to suggest that a $215 billion deficit that was in decline is even remotely at the level of irresponsible spending since Democrats took over defies logic and requires the willing suspension of disbelief.
What happened to all that toxic debt it was supposed to buy up? Guess what? Paulson went into a press conference (after the fact)and said they changed their minds. Banks expanded by buying up smaller banks instead. Look at the money trail. The current president is a puppet of the bankers just like every one since JFK. It all points to the banks. Why would you give someone money so they can loan it back to you on interest? Ridiculous. We are being eaten alive by special interest groups and lobbyists. Was there not there a campaign pledge somewhere about no more lobbyists??
To clarify, because the news stories aren't very explicit on this point:
Obama appointed this guy Kundra to be the US Government's Chief Information Officer. That is not the office involved in this raid. The office involved in this raid is the "D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer." Kundra was previously the Chief Technology Officer.
The people arrested were part of D.C. government, so the odds that they were Republican appointments is basically nil.
Further, simply because people in this guy's office were arrested doesn't necessarily mean anything about this guy. Let's let it play out and see the rest of the details first.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
God can we get through a week without an Obama cabinet controversy?
