There’s something just a little, how do I put it, smarmy about our soon-to-be new Secretary of the Treasury. Here he is, applying for the job that oversees the IRS, and somehow a few years back he came up about $30,000 short on various taxes.
Where I grew up, we called that a double-standard. President Obama has suggested he will not tolerate ethical lapses, and yet, we’re now allowing someone with a less-than-stellar record with regard to paying taxes to be the country’s banker. If this were a Republican, the mainstream media would be howling and screaming. The best word to describe it is…hypocrisy. I guarantee you that if it were me, there would be no mercy.
Memo to Tim: What were you thinking? Who else are you going to allow slide? Give me a break!
