The Democratic demigod from the politically polluted state of Illinois is proving that inexperience is the great equalizer once you take office. Some are finding it hard to believe that a number of Obama appointees are voluntarily bumping themselves off. The reason that they are all walking the plank and taking the Nestea plunge is because the liberals would rather do it themselves since the beatified one is in office, rather than have the conservatives throw them overboard.
Within hours of each other, Nancy Killefer and Tom Daschle excused themselves from the side show sensationalism that a number of the Obama choices have created. Just barely underneath the liberal limbo wire was Timothy Geithner, who conveniently forgot how to pay his taxes, so the Obama administration put him in charge of the Treasury Department, which oversees the IRS. I would hope that the IRS under his tutelage would be as forgiving to middle class tax miscreants as they were to him..
In an article entitled, “Daschle debacle humbles Obama”, we hear that the “clearly gifted politician cannot escape the gravitational pull of Washington”. The “once-in-a-generation political leader who could rise above his predecessor’s foibles.” “The new President, seen by some as arrogant..” (That is the journalistic equivalent of saying, “Dennis Kucinich, seen by some as insane..”) Obama’s “frank admission” (“I screwed up.”) was so different from “the preferred dodge” from this Oval Office. No real surprise there, these are the typical mistakes that are made by beginners. The media are all in a fever, they are amazed that there is a “green” oxidization breaking out all over the copper complexion of the liberals geek god..
Probably the easiest ways to avoid this hilarity would have been to actually “vet” the appointees and to consider all former Clinton caliphate members and hideous liberal hacks off limits. It seems that the Obama vetting process consisted of, “Dude, you want this job?.. Cool..”
Nancy Killefer withdrew from her made up position as “Chief Performance Officer” due to a $946 tax lien from the District of Columbia. The “source” of this information was not the “loyal opposition”, it was the Associated Press. This once again proves one of the reasons that inexperience is a dangerous political flaw because the media, who spent months preening the poltroon are now set to kneecap the knob.. Actually, Killefer’s mistake seems within the parameters of acceptability at less than a grand but Daschle’s “mistake” seems intentional and one that comes from the inbred arrogance of the left.
As a public service, since the left seems to have an allergy towards properly vetting their potential nominees, I will briefly vet Daschle, as the libs should have done BEFORE he withdrew. The BlagObama reprobates can use this template for the next liberal that they wish to reward with a position in this Catharist cabinet.. Mind you, this is not a “complete” vetting, but you will quickly come to the realization that Daschle’s tax troubles were nothing compared to leftist genealogy.
Daschle should have paid a bit more attention to not only his tax returns but to some of the things that he said in relation to the taxes that he and his lemmings inflicted upon the middle class as the Senate Majority Leader. Take this gem from 1998, “Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the (IRS) should enforce our laws to the letter..” That said, Daschle should be fitted with “Democratic bracelets” (handcuffs) and escorted to nearest penal colony. Once word of the penal colony punishment makes it to Barney Frank, he will admit to decades of tax malfeasance whether its true or not..
The idea of Daschle getting back into the revolving door of Washington politics after his “career outside” of politics is evidence that these thieves never leave the trough.
After his defeat in 2004, Daschle immediately went to “work” for the firm of Alston and Bird, a heavy hitter on K Street in the clandestine world of “political lobbying” where their particular field of expertise is “health care”. Daschle had to cool his heels for a year after his ignominious defeat, so they cooked up the title of “special policy adviser” for the liberal. After his double secret probation was up, Daschle got down to earning some serious cash, some of which probably never made it to his wink-wink, “tax returns”, scoring two million dollars in 2008 alone.
Daschle kept his liberal legacy alive as well by being a “Senior Fellow” at the uber liberal stink tank “The Center For The American Way”. The “Center” was a frequent friend to the Al Franken Radio Comedy Show where tens of listeners were captivated by the Scare America comedian. Intertwined in this “Center” is the Hungarian rodent George Soros who planted the seed money for the “Center” along with the “Democracy Alliance”, a liberal anti-American pustule.
The cancerous roots of the “Center” run even deeper. One of its tentacles is called “Campus Progress” which disseminates progressive propaganda and socialist subversion on campuses nationwide. They also held their first “National Student Conference” in July 2005. Their guest speaker was Bill Clinton.. Their second conference in 2006? Guest speaker Barack Obama..
“Think Progress”, another bottom feeder liberal “Center” cult, even accused John McCain of acting like a Democrat when they alleged that he plagiarized a speech from Admiral Timothy Zeimer. They were proven wrong, so it goes to show that obviously there isn’t a lot of this “think” thing going on there as the “Think Progress” goons never thought to call out Democratic plagiarists Joe Biden and Barack Obama who actually plagiarized..
Daschle’s “Center” also produced a little tract entitled, “The Structural Imbalance of Talk Radio”, piggy backing off of the last attempted infringement upon free speech, the “Fairness Doctrine”. “Free” speech is a liberal misnomer. “Censored” or “politically correct” speech is more like it.. Those who disagree with the left quickly discover that the Constitution only applies to the Socialists.
Again please note the smarmy attempts at diversion by the left. Let’s just call it the “liberal 180 degree definitional analogy”. So far we have heard “Fairness”, “Progress”, “Democracy”, “American” used to humorously describe these leftists. Daschle and his crew have warped the definitions of each of these words. His and his minions are confirmed liberals who actively seek to subvert Democracy within every facet of society and this ethos saturates every level of their organizations.
It is obvious that this liberal leech wanted to resurface as the Health and Human Services honcho so that he could again cash in on all of the contacts that he made “health care lobbying” for Alston and Bird.
In 2008, Daschle wrote a book entitled, “Critical: What Can We Do About The Health-Care Crisis”. Here the socialist reemerges as Daschle postulates about a “Federal Health Board” who would be “insulated from political pressure” (AKA: Guys like lobbyist Daschle during his Alston and Bird days.) and “accountable to elected officials and the American people”..(AKA: the guys that he said he would be insulated from..) This is known as the “Daschle Double Talk”. Simply put, Daschle dreamed of a socialized system of health care not unlike the one that the Secretary of State envisioned when she was trying to fabricate “experience’ as the First Lady..
First, Bill Richardson. (When Richardson, potential Commerce Secretary, took a powder, his rumored replacement was Leo Hindery. Hindery made the “gift” to Daschle that he “absentmindedly” forgot to claim as part of his tax woes because Daschle was a “consultant” to Hindery’s “InterMedia Partners”..) Almost Timothy Geithner. Then Nancy Killefer. Then Tom Daschle. For a guy who bragged that he would start a “new era of responsibility” he is sounding almost as idiotic as the Botox Bolshvik who said that she was bringing the “most ethical House in history” to Washington. Daschle is done, but remember that these are the types of people that Obama has already installed and the type of people he will be turning over rocks to look for in the future.
It sounds as though the Obama Oval Office’s “preferred dodge” won’t be going away anytime soon with the liberals in charge.
