Dear Mr. President: Is their some reason you haven't bailed on the Kirk appointment for trade representative?

I guess the question is this: Is the Geithner Paradigm still in play?

Mr. President, you need to start firing some people.

You DO know how to fire people, don't you?

You've appointed yet another tax-dodging cheat to yet another position of responsibility and authority.

Look, Mr. President... I get that you're the most corrupt president that's ever lived. I mean, you continue to rip us off in ways that have Al Capone spinning in his grave, you're ripping us off so bad.

Trillions in wasteful, unnecessary debt; crooks for appointments, a foreign policy that's a late-night punch line, complete lies about lobbyists in your Administration. Incompetence is your watchword.

But whoever the crew is that you have vetting people are total screw ups. In reality, I wouldn't let those clowns run an elevator for me, and still, you're keeping them on?

And now, we find out if the rule of law means anything to you. It sure didn't with one of your first corrupt appointments. Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner. We've noticed that you've shelved your crooked Treasury Secretary after his abysmal performance and speech where he didn't seem to know much about nuttin'... causing the Market to tank... again.

So, what's it gonna be, Mr. President. If you were EVER going to show any character or integrity... now would be a good time.

But what say we don't hold our breath, eh?

Trade nominee Ron Kirk becomes 4th Obama pick with tax problems, owing $10,000 in back taxes

Last update: March 2, 2009 - 6:04 PM

Kirk owes an estimated $10,000 in back taxes from earlier in the decade and has agreed to pay them, the Senate Finance Committee said Monday. The committee said the taxes arise from Kirk's handling of speaking fees he donated to a scholarship fund that he set up at his alma mater, and for his deduction of the full cost of season tickets to the Dallas Mavericks professional basketball team.

Kirk also agreed to make changes in his accounting of charitable deductions, including reducing the claimed value of a donated television from $3,000 to $1,500.

The former Dallas mayor is the fourth nominee by President Barack Obama to run into tax problems.
