It’s a Balance Thing

What Is The Right Number For Obama?




Tom Daschle bows out of nomination process, is behind $136,000 in taxes



Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination for health and human services secretary Tuesday, after fielding mounting criticism over his failure to pay more than $130,000 in taxes.

The move marked a stunning turnaround from the day before, when Daschle mounted a campaign to retain allies on Capitol Hill and President Obama told reporters he “absolutely” stands by the former South Dakota senator.

But the president accepted Daschle’s withdrawal with “sadness and regret” Tuesday morning, according to a White House statement.



Yadda yadda, support the president, yadda yadda, don’t want to be a distraction. In other words, he is too big a crook. Too much of a tax cheat. Ok, I can accept that.

But Geithner, who owed $34,000 in unpaid taxes, went through the nomination process like effluent through the proverbial waterfowl. He’s in. So $34,000 worth of tax cheating is Ok.

Does this mean that the right number is ($34,000+$146,000)/2 = $90,000? Is that the upper cheater limit allowable? Because these jobs all come with a nice paycheck. And I can forget to pay my taxes if that’s what it takes to get in the front door.

Bill Richardson had to pull his name out of the hat too, because his dirty money problems weren’t tax liabilities, they were somehow connected to improper campaign donations. Works for me; I haven’t had a thing to do with any donations to anyone. Ok, $20 to Fred Thompson, and $50 to Sarah Palin Juan McAmnesty. But I will promise to run up some tax debt if that can get me one of those $200,000 a year cabinet jobs.

The confusing part is that I also hear that Nancy Killefer also withdrew her name. She was in the running for White House Performance Officer (now there’s a position Clinton would have appreciated!!) but she had her own tax problems: DC fined her $946 for not paying $298 in unemployment compensation for her household help. I guess that $298 either goes back a long long time, or her fine was so large because she was abusing the hired (illegal?) help. So her under $300 problem might have been more important than Geithner’s $34,000. It’s all the look of the thing after all.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
