Symptomatic of the Obama administration’s continuing disregard for all things pristinely lawful, Tom Daschle was the second vestibulating nominee from the ever increasingly ironic democrat party to be found delinquent in his duty to render that which is Caesar’s.
As we approach April 15th, that gasp you just heard was the sound of three million American tax accountants fainting at the prospect of having to explain to their clients why they indeed are not allowed to ignore nearly $ 400,000 in perks from their employers even though the highest appointed officials in our government seem to think its permissible.
Again, we must stress the substance of the characters involved here. Doing so will help curb astonishment.
When everyone regains consciousness, perhaps smelling salt should be handed out to Obama nominees during the vetting process. Then, a good face slapping and a cold shower should be required before we explain to the rest of upstanding America that even though the criminal act of tax evasion applies to the common man, it apparently is a “minor” mistake when committed by those tapped to actually lead the part of the government that enforces laws against it.
And, Rod Serling will lead the confirmation hearing.
Of course, we must realize that the relationship between behavior and taxability is sublimely latent in this case. One requires accountability, the other requires accounting. Both are lacking in the liberal mind.
Where else would one find a complete contempt for paying taxes other than from those who are driven by psychotic lust to horde the productive value of others and give it to the passive indigent in exchange for votes?
And, who else, other than a liberal politician, would we expect to mandate the oppression of taxation on the nation's best achievers, from whom hypocrites like Daschle draw their parasitic livelihood, while using those tax funds to implement social reengineering that diminishes the capacity of those very same achievers?
We all understand that Tom Daschle is a perennial member of the tax and spend liberal cabal. This is not news. But, it is, to paraphrase our newly installed helmster, “...the height of irresponsibility,” for any prospective departmental leader to have this kind of deficiency in conscientiousness or such lack of diligence. Quite frankly, it’s despicable.
Not only should Mr. Daschle not be allowed to serve in any leadership position governing over resources from the American tax payer, he should be formerly investigated for other possible wrongdoing or unethical violations.
And, Daschle was quoted in 1998 on the senate floor, saying, “…those who cheat in their duty to pay taxes hurt all of us….”
Someone should inform the new liberal hypocrisy in Washington they are not obligated to actually tie all this rope they are getting into nooses. They don't need to help their political rivals find methods for their demise. Republicans can handle that on their own.
At the risk of stating the obvious, they may, however, need to be reminded that America has an electoral chopping block every two years. And, from what we are seeing of this gang of suspects, they seem to be lining up and proceeding in droves, without leading, to the November gallows without so much as a jeer required out of the republican minority.
Honestly, can they make this any easier?
