    Sure you're not...lol!!!

    If this chick was picked by a Republican prez you would be leading the charge against her. Just admit it.

    As soon as you admit that what bothers you is her party affiliation.

    First her under reporting her earnings for consultant work, this wasn't discovered by the Investigators nor the Press but her OWN financial advisers and was immediately reported. So she told on herself. Now to put what 80 million means to her compared to her net worth.... 5%. or 1/2 of 1% for each year she earned it.

    Next the offshore trust fund. Unlike some, she didn't create that fund, she was a little girl at the time it was created and she doesn't manage it. You can ask our resident trust fund member if you doubt me but trust funds routinely name a very young member to extend the life of the trust. It doesn't mean that trust fund baby will ever have a say in the management of that fund, nor could they unilaterally change the trust.

    Hyatt- I have to shake my head and peek outside, I just had to make sure the sky is still blue! To see the above members support a Union and it's 'over inflated' wages. (well they are called over inflated wages in any of a dozen other threads where Unions are discussed)

    Millionaires declare they are cutting hours to make their employees part-time to put the burden of insurance on the wage earner and there was no condemnation.

    The Superior Bank failure- she left that bank 7 years before it failed. If it was Rumsfeld that held that position and then left I doubt ANY of you would raise an eyebrow.

    If the GOP members of the committee had real heartburn with her she would have been raked over the coals but fact is she is far more like the TP's backers than the democrat faithful...
    Oh, well never mind then.

    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Party affiliation has nothing to do with it, as far as I'm concerned. Go read my initial comments.

    Secondly, and more troubling, she's a "Chicago" billionaire - aren't there enough Chicago influences screwing up America already?
    Google her and you will find out. You can attempt to make something out of the Chicago angle but you would be oh so wrong.

    again...

    damn millionaires... yeah damn millionaires when they cut their worker's pay and hours to make a bogus political diva dance.

    was that 7 years before or 7 years after she proudly proclaimed her passionate commitment to subprime has never been stronger? And it wasn't an hour after Obama was elected the rabid right decried ANY attempt to throw blame on BushII... more partisan spin.



    well, that's weird...

    who?

    It is amusing to see the Right Wing radicals froth at the very idea of a Commerce Sec being rich....have you been paying ANY attention to who has been Commerce Sec in the past? She may be the richest but she is of the pattern... what freaks the Right out isn't how she made her money or that she has money, it is she is a 'turn coat' to the other super wealthy- though there are several super wealthy who do go Democrat.

    But keep howling, it is fun to watch...

    Why disclosure of income is a part of the nomination process at all? Trying to make sure she can afford to rent a place in Washington, DC?

    I certainly don't care for her politics, and I also don't think there should even be a Department of Commerce in its current form, but she seems to be more than qualified for the position, and probably will be confirmed easily.

    Smart people make oversights. When you're dealing with assets of this magnitude, $80 million is one item that didn't get copied over in the spreadsheet. They found the error and corrected it. Not really much reason for me to be upset over this item of... "news."

    Shouldn't you be worshiping this "job creator?"
