I’ve been hearing joyful news-bites this morning about Eric Holder’s confirmation as the first African-American Attorney General. It reminded me of something good that happened on Friday that didn’t get much play in the MSM. Michael Steele was voted in as the new chair of the Republican National Committee. And yes, he is an African-American. That said, it is my opinion that the substance of a person is so much more important than style. Character, principles and the capacity to lead are the criteria by which we should choose our leaders, not race and general “coolness.”
Michael Steele possesses the qualifications and the vision to lead the GOP back to the top. He understands the importance of articulating a clear message of Conservatism. Check out the RNC website for his “Blueprint for Tomorrow.” That’s our guiding plan, guys. He stresses the importance of leading with integrity, clearly defining the difference between Republicans and Democrats and upgrading our strategies to compete in the modern political arena. I have to tell you, I’m optimistic about Michael Steele. I have every hope that he will be a leader for Conservatives, not just party hacks.

I’m experiencing that feeling of deja vu this morning. Yet another Obama appointee has tax issues! Wow! Let me predict what is going to be said about performance czarina Nancy Killefer’s tax problem. “It was an honest mistake.” Or perhaps, “She had a little glitch with her Turbo Tax.”
“Ms. Killefer, 55 years old, failed to pay employment taxes on household help for a year and a half, the Associated Press reported. In 2005, the AP said, the District of Columbia filed a $946.69 tax lien on her home for failure to pay the unemployment compensation tax. The error was resolved five months later.”
Oh…the old employment taxes on the household help. Well, we’ve all had that problem, right? I couldn’t find the box on the 1040 for that one, either.
As it turns out, though, silly excuses probably won’t be necessary. Nancy Killefer is withdrawing her candidacy, saying that she doesn’t want her tax problems to be a distraction for the new administration. There goes the only Obama appointee [so far] who possessed an ounce of shame. Tom? Tim? What about you guys?
Oh, and one more thing. How badly would the MSM be savaging tax-challenged appointees to a Republican administration?

Remember hearing Obama bashing lobbyists out on the campaign trail? He used to say that he didn’t take their money and would not provide them with positions in his administration. He used to accuse lobbyists of being part of the problem with how business works in Washington D.C. He even went so far as to publicly make a rule against lobbyists in his administration.
And now, the bait and switch has been done all over again. Notice the use of the word “forced.” The A.P. headline writer has made a subtle effort to absolve Obama of responsibility. What I have to wonder is this: how will this play with the Hope-n-changer’s? Will they even notice that Obama is now governing against his own campaign rhetoric?

“The prosecutor in the impeachment trial of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich says he’s proven ‘a pattern of abuse of power.’In his closing argument Thursday, prosecutor David Ellis said the evidence shows Blagojevich knew his conduct was improper.”
It looks like Blago’s goose is just about cooked. I do have to give Blago credit for believing in himself–he’s been off on a media blitz this week, all the while proclaiming his innocence. And this despite the tapes that the prosecutor has been playing for the jury. You know the tapes…the ones you’ve heard on the news that clearly feature him talking about seeking favors or money for the messiah’s Senate seat. Blago is either shamelessly dishonest or totally off his rocker. Or both.
Oh, and I do have to give the AP credit. They actually mentioned in this article that Blago is a Democrat. Oh, really? Hmm…I had no idea. Of course, if the story were about a corrupt Republican, they would have put the word, “Republican” in the headline and 15 times throughout the article also. Oh well. Progress is progress.

Have you had it up to here [you can’t see this but my hand is approximately two feet above the top of my head] with the fawning, ridiculous coverage of Obama’s inauguration? Sounds like you need a little factual information and tongue-in-cheek cynicism from Ann this morning.
“So maybe liberals can stop acting as if the entire nation could at last come together in a “unity of purpose” if only conservatives would stop fomenting “conflict and discord” — as Obama suggested in his inaugural address. We’re not the ones who booed a departing president.”
Well said. The way some of those “tolerant” and “open-minded” libs behaved towards President Bush this week was an absolute disgrace.
“Liberals always have to play the victim, acting as if they merely want to bring the nation together in hope and unity in the face of petulant, stick-in-the-mud conservatives. Meanwhile, they are the ones booing, heckling and publicly fantasizing about the assassination of those who disagree with them on policy matters.”

Yay! A terrible downer of a speech that told us how awful life in America is. An incomprehensible poem of pure drivel. A blatantly racist benediction. And the MSM going on and on about what a great day it was. It’s going to be a long four years…

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!

Rush is calling it the “Immaculate Inauguration.” Michelle Malkin calls it “Inaugur-A-Palooza.” I think the word “mania” has to apply somewhere to the shameless crap that the MSM is calling “inauguration coverage.” Michelle Malkin has linked to another blog [http://www.julescrittenden.com/] where there’s a complete compendium of the MSM’s fawning, obsequious, laudatory, self-congratulatory, worshipful,…[insert your favorite applicable adjective <here>] “objective coverage” of the Obamanauguration.
