    Remember when Hillary said it required the “willing suspension of unbelief” about the surge in Iraq?
    Now these same people tell us that when the tax cheat they want to put in as sec of treas didn’t notice that they didn’t deduct taxes, didn’t notice that the IMF told him to pay them, and finally, DIDN’T NOTICE THAT THE IMF GAVE HIM THE MONEY TO PAY THEM, well, they tell us that they believe it was all an “innocent” mistake.
     
  2. Its disgusting all right.

    When he said turbotax, I about laughed my ass off. What a dork.
     
  3. What would be his chances of confirmation if Bush had nominated him?

    What I don't get is what he has done to warrant the nomination, other than look the other way (along with Bernanke) while the financial system imploded. Of course Wall Street likes him, why wouldn't they?

    Frankly, I think Bernie Madoff would have been a far better choice. Unlike the Fed and Treasury, he pulled off a massive fraud for decades and no one caught on. Like Geithner( and Eric Holder), he made a couple of mistakes but he's learned form them and won't repeat them.
     
  4. Rep. Charles Rangel, the powerful head of the congressional committee that writes the country's tax laws, blamed his own ignorance - and not being able to speak Spanish - for failing to report $75,000 in rental income from his Caribbean holiday home.
