Here Comes Obama Tax Cheat #4

OK, this is beyond ridiculous and is just insulting. Former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk, nominated by Obama for U.S. trade representative, owes $10,000 in back taxes and becomes the 4th Obama nominee in a slew of appointments to fail to pay their fair share to the government (I'm sure it was a slight oversight or "clerical error"- $1 here, $10,000 there, etc). Obama's inability to find a decent Democratic public servant or political figure who actually pays taxes reflects the incompetence of the Obama administration in their vetting of nominees or the lack of integrity and rank hypocrisy of leading Democrats who sing the praises of high taxes publicly but do everything privately to ensure they do not have to pay their fair share--only we do.

To recap the list of Obama nominees with tax problems:
  • Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner owed $34,000 in back taxes and interest on income during his employment at the U.S. Monetary Fund
  • HHS Secretary nominee Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination after the revelation that he owed $128,000 in back taxes and did not report his use of a limousine and chauffeur on tax forms, giving new meaning to the expression "limousine liberal."
  • Obama's pick for performance officer, Nancy Killefer, failed to pay unemployment taxes for her household help

The profiles in liberal hypocrisy continue. Is it any wonder Obama's approval rating was as low as 59 percent last week and his negatives are steadily climbing?
