So if this guy isn’t smart enough to fill out a tax form, is he smart enough to be in charge at Treasury?

I hope tax problems plague Obama’s treasury pick! I know that scrutiny of “the chosen one” and his cabinet appointments is not the hip thing to do right now but seriously folks! Are we going to forget about the way that the Left in this country treated people appointed by Conservatives? Bork, Gonzales, Roberts, Alito, Thomas…do those names mean anything to you? We as Conservatives, not to mention the MSM, should be asking serious questions about Obama [although it’s a little late for that, agreed?!] and the people that he’s choosing for his cabinet.
“A Capitol Hill grilling is likely for Timothy Geithner, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick to head the Treasury Department, after public revelations he failed to pay $34,000 in taxes several years ago. Senate Democrats are pressing to schedule a quick confirmation hearing for Geithner on Friday, hoping to tee up swift approval of his nomination on Inauguration Day. But newly released information about the tax goofs by Geithner, regarded as a brilliant financial markets specialist well-positioned to deal with the nation’s considerable economic problems, could complicate the process.”
Oops. $34,000 in unpaid taxes. Just a little goof!
