Generally speaking, a president should get to name the Cabinet of his choosing. However, a tax cheat as Secretary of the Treasury undermines the very position, and gives Americans–whose confidence in government is, as it SHOULD BE, historically low–even less confidence that you guys in Washington have a clue. Please reward the modicum of confidence I have in you by VOTING AGAINST TIMOTHY GEITHNER.

Sincerely,

Rev. Byron D. Harvey

    Can you imagine the reaction Bush would have gotten had he made such a bone-head move?

    When I was listening to this guy talk about this “mistake” he made, all I could think was that he didn’t even look embarrassed. It was like he was going thru the motions of addressing it like it was no big deal, and let’s move on.

    I’ve heard it referred to as an “honest mistake” – how do they know that? From what I read, he was audited for 2003-2004 and owed $14K plus penalties for money he earned while working for IMF, but he didn’t think to check 2001-2002, and didn’t pay those taxes, with penalties, until just prior to his nomination? IMHO he’s either not so honest or not fit to hold this post.

    Look on the bright side. At least now we have a Treasury Secretary that believes we should pay LESS taxes to the United States government.

    Very funny, but then I remembered that people in power tend to believe taking my money is in the interest of the people, but taking their money is not.
