Another one of his picks that didn't pay taxes. From Yahoo News.

"Obama performance chief Killefer out, citing taxes"

Interesting she withdrew even though it is not a confirmed position. Smart though, she would have been in the spot light tremendously until the next tax victim arrives.

I didn't hear that yet, I'll have to go watch the news. I wasn't expecting that.

Yep he took himself out,,,, trouble is politicians that are voted out never leave.
They stay on the party payroll and sit in the wings advising. Then hopefully get some appointment.

I have to wonder what would happen if I cheated the government out of $138,000 in taxes. Think I could get away with calling it a "glitch" or "mistake"?

Probably not expat, but you may get nominated to some position in 2012 if you act now. Laugh

I doubt that. At the rate things are going the Repubs are headed for big victory in 2012.

Seriously...he's been in office two weeks, and we've already seen the following from Carter 2.0:

- At least three nominees that were tax cheats while bragging about the administration's high ethical standards;

- Utter hypocrisy as he turns the White House thermostat up to 80 and works in short sleeves while telling us we all need to cut back on energy use

- Embarrassing weakness to Ahmadinejad

- India telling him he's "barking up the wrong tree" if he thinks he's going to broker an agreement over Kashmir

- Backing down to the EU after they complain about his "Buy American" proposal

- Ridiculous arrogance displayed by things like pulling the "I won" trump card

- Castro smelling blood in the water and demanding the return of GITMO

- A guy who ran on "change" filling his administration with Clinton retreads

- His wife taking heat for not using race as a deciding factor in her choice of designer wear

And then there's this from Nancy Pelosi, claiming that every month we don't pass the stimulus, 500 million Americans lose their jobs (quite a feat for a nation of 300 million people).

And this is the honeymoon phase, when he's supposed to be riding a wave of good will.

That's funny, about Pelosi, I had not seen that before.

It was said by his own Chief of Staff that "it was hot enough to grow orchids in the Oval Office".

Unfortunately the "Change" was nothing more than an advertising slogan intended to play off of the disappointment in the economy, the imagined failure in Iraq pushed hard by the MSM, and pushing it all on Bush as evidenced on this site by certain lefties, "everything is Bushes fault, man I hate that guy".

Now, thankfully, there is a slow down on the Stimulus Bill in the Senate with lots more debating on the floor.
It is full of pork and earmarks that do nothing to create or keep jobs and I believe that the public outcry is being heard, even by the Dems.

Where is SoCo or Civet defending her?

How many times would that have been played on the nightly news if it was Bush or Quayle?

Friggin' retard she is.

Maybe she was factoring in illegals?

Pretty much everyone who doesn't want to doesn't have to pay taxes. That is everyone filing long form or having multiple revenue sources.

The IRS had a lot of it's funding cut under Bush I. Further under the son and a lot of the funding it had redirected from enforcement to help lines and such. The chances of an audit have been tiny for years. The temptation is there, and one can just wander into the grey area, like wether transportoin is compensation or not. Looks like Dashle has come to some kind of an agreement with the IRS, Palin is still working on a deal with the State of Alaska.

I think people who call others retards are most likely so themselves. It's not newsworthy to quote someone when they obviously mis spoke. Maybe spell check my posts if it turns you on.
