Apparently not.

No wonder they don't mind raising taxes for "rich" (aka "working") Americans.

ALL the recent ones seem to have two things in common:
1-Obama appointees.
2-They are left-wing elitists who live by the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do school of thought.

Dear President Obama,

Please look at the state of Dallas before you appoint one of our politicians.

I'm not sure what's funnier: the fact that Obama can't find an appointee without tax issues or people who don't pay taxes (because they don't make enough to) complaining about people not paying their taxes (because they're a dipshit politician).

Does this make Obama incompetent or just corrupt? Why is it everyone he picks has some skelletons hiding? We have the Clinton's campaign funds from China (I think I have that right) and now this in a long line of no pays on taxes?

I am starting to think we aren't getting out of this in one piece. Can he just slow down fucking up this country?

Where is gpamp to explain how all this going on is good for the country?

I don't think this makes him corrupt, but it does show a high level of incompetence.

After reading up on the exact nature of the case, I honestly don't think it is a big deal.

It appears that the main thing is that Ron Kirk didn't report for payments he received for speeches he has given. However ALL of that money was donated to his Alma Mater and would have been deducted anyways.

The other thing is claiming too much for deductions, which isn't all that uncommon IMO. At least he isn't fucking up to the tune of $150,000 like Dachle did...

There are plenty of reasons to throw Ron Kirk under the bus but, to me, it is looking like this isn't that big of a deal..

It's not so much that it's a "big deal", but more that it's this ongoing theme among Barry's nominee's...
