I didn't even know he was guilty of this before he was appointed to his station. I'm guilty of accepting what others have said, while complaining about the same thing about them when they form ignorant opinions on international politics. This is why people should stick with the business they know. I need to stop trying to branch out.
    I don't know the details of it either, to be honest with you. I do believe he got everything rectified once it was pointed out.

    To me, it doesn't show how bad Obama and his administration is - it shows how bad most politicians are, from both the left and the right.
    So you're equating a single woman working odd jobs, having trouble making ends meet and possibly delinquent on a small tax bill with a the president of a federal reserve bank who cheated on $35,000 in taxes?

    No, that's not working, since I haven't seen you on the rampage against the criminals in the Messiah's posse.

    Well, mistakes made prior to office are very different than mistakes made while in office. One can be forgiven. The other should not.

    True enough, but I'm certain many of those staffers are having personal financial problems that make paying the exorbitant taxes this government overcharges difficult. A former president of the New York Federal Reserve has more than enough money to pay his taxes, and he has the personal accountants to fill out the forms. Like Leona Helmsley, Geitner should have put on trial, not confirmed by the Senate.

    Here's the real dea.

    Persons demanding taxes be raised on others should make damn sure they've actually paid their taxes. If what the gander says is good for the goose isn't good for that gander, then the gander should be the next guest of honor for dinner on Sunday.

    I'm not on a rampage against the criminals in the GOP either. I'm just pointing out that going on a rampage in Obama's administration is disingenuous if conservatives don't go on rampages against those in their own party or movements.

    Shouldn't you have winked after your bolded remark here? When one is salaried, income tax is withheld. To overstate one's dependents is wrong, so they shouldn't be doing that. To have other income on which one isn't prepared to pay taxes? Also wrong. There is NO excuse. Geitner owed $40,000 plus or minus. He paid it. Paultry, really, by comparison.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
