Once again idiots take the stage. It takes a special kind of stupid to think that a man who makes millions of dollars a year and is in the public spotlight all the time would try to avoid paying such a small sum (for him) in taxes by breaking the law.

Unless he just wants to give dumb people something to whine about.


And if this was George W. Bush instead of Daschle, you would say this exact same thing?

Of course. Why the hell would a guy who wants to be or is President not pay his taxes, or try to get out of paying what is a pittance to him? It does not make sense.

You're always good for a nice chuckle.

HAHAHAHA! When your team is full of cheats and corruption, you make excuse after excuse...When the other side does it...CRUCIFY!

At least for most of us republicans, we agree that they should be charged if a crime has been committed, and removed from power if impropriety has been proven. All a dem has to do is apologize for being a crook and you guys orgasm!


OK, so no crime has been identified here, but the team is full of cheats. Wow, Republicans really have the market cornered on maintaining humble transparency in government.

Perhaps you forgot about the whole Illinois governor/senator thing the Dems stood up against (even though there was no legal reason to do so), there was at least one more Dem that lost a position or seat that they had because of some legal issue in the past couple of months...maybe you don't mean to apply selective logic, but if not, it's because logic really is not at the top of your thinking process.

And of course, you utterly failed to even attempt to come up with a good reason why a multimillionaire being considered for a Cabinet post would attempt to get away with 140,000 of tax "cheating". It was a misunderstanding with his accountant over tax rules or something similar, get used to it.

Yeah, after they got caught. And they really stuck to their guns when they said they wouldn't accept any appointment he made...til someone rose a stink about him being black. Can't lose that cash cow, now can we?

Really dude, it was about the fact that eventually they realized they had no legal grounds to prohibit him from coming in. The simple answer is usually the right one.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Tom Daschle has withdrawn his nomination to be Health and Human Services secretary.

That's according to a joint White House statement from President Barack Obama and his former nominee.

Obama said Tuesday he accepted the withdrawal "with sadness and regret."

Daschle has been battling for his nomination since it was disclosed he failed to pay more than $120,000 in taxes.

He said he's withdrawing because he's not a leader who has the full faith of Congress and will be a distraction.

Here we go again ...

A Senate committee today abruptly canceled a session to consider President Obama's nomination of Rep. Hilda Solis to be labor secretary in the wake of a report saying that her husband yesterday paid about $6,400 to settle tax liens against his business -- liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years.

The report, by USA Today, came just before the Senate's Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee was slated to meet to consider Solis's nomination, which had been delayed by questions over her role on the board of the pro-labor organization American Rights at Work. A source said that committee members did not learn about the tax issue until today.

Republicans are against raising taxes. Democrats are the "we need to squeeze every penny out of rich people" party, remember? Only they don't pay their own taxes. That's what's amazing.
