"Make No Mistake, I Deserve to Be Treated Different Than You"

Taxprof does a Tom "Free Ride" Daschle round-up.

My fave:

National Review (via InstaPundit): The Corner:

“Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter.” Sen. Tom Daschle, Congressional Record, May 7, 1998, p. S4507.

OK. Let me make this clear to E and Carter. Daschle should be dumped now. BTW, I'm still waiting for Carters apology and E's explanation for the ten Republican votes for Geithner.

I am never going to apologize for the dopy republicans that supported Geithner, nor will I apologize for the Arlen Specters of the Senate who will vote for the spending bill that has been renamed a stimulus bill. These elected officials in Washington are disgusting. They are going to finally kill our economy.

Bob,

Glad to see you are being reasonable. I have no explanation why any dope from either party would have voted for to confirm Geithner. I have no explanation why this stuff didn't come out while he was the President of the Federal reserve bank and I have no explanation why Team Obama did not figure it out during a background check before nominating him. He may do a great job and I hope that he does now that he's in. He just never should have gotten there. I'm sure there are some child molesters out there that would be great school teachers. I just feel that after you do certain things, you shouldn't be allowed to hold certain jobs and this is one of those things.

Bob-
The 10 Republicans voted for Geithner because they are bigger tax cheats and hoped he would look the other way for them,

This is getting kinda ridiculous. At least Bill Richardson had the decency to step aside when issues came about concerning his background.

These two cabinet members will be tainted. Especially the secretary of the treasury - how can you put someone through who didn't pay taxes until he was up for the position???

e - dead on with your opinion tax cheats shouldn't be nominated for key cabinet positions - especially secretary of the treasury! Come on! Administrations/Transition teams do enough due dilligence on these nominees, I still find it remarkable that they felt Geithner was still worthy.

Carter - I see you are not a man of your word. These were your words from "Murtha Update"
Good for you - If you are crooked you should be canned! Now, what about Geithner? He should be canned too because his tax indiscretions disqualify him from employment in the IRS and even the Justice Department. What sayeth you Baaahb? If you agree, which would be an obvious affront to Diano, I will never call you Baaahb again. Promise.

Thats why you owe me an apology. Hey - You really practice law?

Nice to see that Dashchal did the right thing. To answer an earlier question of your's, I'm not a pacifist. I come from a military family, and I'm one of the few on this blog who served. I had no problem with Bush going after Bin Laden in Afghanistan, and I have no problem with Obama finishing the job. What I did have a problem with, was Bush taking his eye of the ball to persue what Buchanan correctly called "an Imperialistic War". When will people like you be reasonable, and admit that Bush was wrong to go into Iraq?

Bob,

You need to let go of Bush... He's a former president now, just like George Washington.

You need to direct you attention to the lies and deceit that are coming out of the White House today, not last year.

BTW, someone else posted under the name "e" at 12:03 am. I guess I can't claim ownership of a letter of the alphabet...

real e - I understand where you are coming from. If I were a Republican, I'd want everyone to forget about Bush too. But, HEY! Theres hope! Remember that guy, Joe the Plumber? You know. The guy who never wanted international attention, but had his life spoiled when Obama drug him kicking and screaming into the flood lights? Now that he's done his stint as a foreign corespondent, he's doing speaking engagements for the Republicans.
Palin and the Plumber in 2012!!!!

real e - Your explanation for the 10 Republican votes?

Carter ?????

bob - umm, your explanation for the democratic majority?

By the way, I think it's safe to theorize that you may be the only one on this blog to have served.

steve- Look at who is leading the Republican party: Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Michael Steele, Joe the Plumber.
What do they have in common? Media personality and no real ideas. They are great at promoting themselves, but weak on actual policy.

Obama has personality and real ideas and a democratic majority.

Steve - Thats easy. Dems playing follow the leader. They are going along with what Obama wants. On the other hand, the Republican votes are harder to explain.

his ideas are overly liberal and will never unite this country - we all know that - I've been beating that drum for over a year.

Baaahb:

I am not sure what you want me to apologize for. If it is President Bush forget it. He is a man of honor, and although I did not like everything he did, his yes was yes and his no was no. Obama will never be that man.

Carter - Are you dense? I guess I have to spell it out for you. These are your words "If you agree, which would be an obvious affront to Diano, I will never call you Baaahb again. Promise." Well, I did agree, and yet you continue to call to me "Baaahb." Concentrate. Focus. This isn't that difficult Carter.

Bob-

I already gave my explanation above. My explanation is, I have no explanation. See unlike you, I do not have a blind affiliation with a political party.

How do you feel about the Obama war crimes when he issued orders for a missile strike that killed innocent civilians? Should he be prosecuted?

e - For your information, Im an Independant. I was very critical of the Dems cowardly vote that allowed King George to invade Iraq.

e - The last Republican I voted for was George H. W. Bush, and I don't regret it. Then I voted for Clinton, and I don't regret that. I voted for Obama because I believe he was the better of the two candidates, and I want Obama to be a smashing success. Don't you?
