BREAKING: DASCHLE WITHDRAWS…EXCELLENT!!

WOOHOO!!! Breaking LIVE on FOX

I feel like Mister Burns…:0)

CBS 13 has it

om Daschle has withdrawn his nomination to be Health and Human Services secretary.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.

Thank you for everyone who made calls, it really is good to communicate with your legislators and media outlets it may not always work but it adds pressure and that is all we have in a representative form of govt like we have, what with incumbents and Lordly Senatorial Tradition, IMO it is more important than evah to give feedback to your legislators local state and federal…despite the see no evil hear no evil speak no evil ‘tude of some Obots…….

if they didnt want to live by these staandards on lobbying relationships they shouldnt have made it the centerpiece of their campaign, live by the CHANGE .tm, die by the CHANGE, tm

Hey this really harshes the buzz for the one on one interviews Obama is giving to news anchors tonight to push the stimulus huh?

IMO it is damn impressive after last night’s marker they laid down, when Rockefeller, Kerry and assorted DEMS stood with Daschle at that lecturn saying the idea of health care without Daschle was ‘inconceivable’, what a difference a day makes…

I feel like Braveheart, LOL!!! This was a good victory to throw to the people by T.O. (Team Obama), I feel less wild eyed and bushy tailed about the stimulus right now..and more like getting my w2s and 1099s together to drop off at my accountant, it IS tax time starting after all…aww the pundits are SO UPSET, oh noes, wahhhh wahhhhh, BWAAAAHAAAAA!!!!

I guess the 55 page vetting questionairre missed some things, lol

okay now who can we get, NOT HOWARD DEAN, SURELY there is someone who is as qualified for this as our Hillary was before she was pushed aside by Daschle and Reid and denied any chance to work on this issue, she is working on a global level to help people get access to health care, now who can we get to help Americans get access?

DONNA SHALALA? I lurvs her…

PostScript, I have been on the warpath on Daschle, but let me say I have worked in health insurance my whole life and I have fought for UHC since 92, but Daschle was IMO a huge obstruction to the Universal mandate and Baucus felt the same way, and he should know he is drafting legislation..

the thing that really did it for me aside form the basic policy argument which is foremost;, was the interview Daschle gave Politico a few weeks ago in which they lauded his wonderful approach to health care which he and his staff described as the ABCs, Anything But Clinton.

That makes me mad enough to spit. and the CAPPER he goes to the hearing sits down and thanks BOB DOLE who is not there, BOB DOLE who blocked UHC. arrrrgggglle DASCHLES INCOMPETENCE AND COZYING UP TO DOLE and the OBSTRUCTION OF DEMS LIKE BOB KERREY KILLED UHC…and I wasn’t there but don’t tell me those Congressmen didn’t get INCREDIBLY PISSED AND ARROGANT with the VERY IDEA that a FIRST LADY was going to run policy and tell them what would be in the bill..yeah that had a LOT to do with it I am sure…..I remember the environment in the media and more in DC via the media filter then VERRRY well, it was verrry anti Hillary, they didn’t think she was classy enough, her dinner parties were too redneck, she thought she was something with her WORK in LAW, she was ‘abrasive, assertive, aggressive’ (the nicest words they used), in other words she wasn’t the old model for First Ladies…okay now I’m going all primary mode ..someone get me off this crazy segway!!!

yeah we could have done it differently,as Gibby would say,  “nobody’s perfect” BWAAAHAAAA! anyway, my Clintons (yes they are mine but I share them with America and the world) approached it as they had at the state level..but anyway Hillary has done more to promote UHC than Daschle has had free rides in limos, m’kay?

So now that the backstabbing-universal-mandate -blocking-limo-ride-taking-international -lobbying-tax-evading Hillary-bashing pinhead is gone, let’s move forward :0)/rationalization rant off

Another Obama Nominee withdraws due to Tax Troubles…sadly it isn’t Daschle..(yet)

Oh this is just too much..hey Ice Miser even looks like Daschle wot?  He’s Mr Tax Miser…..he earns too much….

Tapper has it again:

The informal battle between members of the Obama Administration and the Taxman resulted in a casualty Tuesday, with news that President Obama’s nominee to be chief performance officer, Nancy Killefer, will withdraw her nomination following the revelation that she had a $946.69 lien on her property in 2005 for failure to pay taxes.

Killefer, who was announced to much fanfare by President Obama on Jan. 7 to serve in the new position to make the U.S. government “more effective, more efficient, and more transparent,” is the third high-level Obama Administration official whose failure to pay taxes in recent years was disclosed in the past month.

To be PERFECTLY CLEAR, Nancy owed less than $1000.00 and withdrew, Daschle owed over $100,000 and has not withdrawn, and Team Obama says they still back him…

It could not be more clear that Daschle is getting the Royal Treatment from his fellow Lordlings in the Senate…

…wake up and smell the frustration and simmering anger in the country Senators, Daschle needs to STEP DOWN….

This just adds another layer of hypocrisy to it, that the woman who wasnt a former Senator is out for less than 1/100th of the tax evasion Daschle pulled….

Travellin’ Tom Daschle or Been Around the World and He He He, He Don’t Pay His Taxes…….

Travellin Tom didn’t declare any of these jet rides, expense free vacations/’gifts’/international lobbying trips which at first glance certainly appear taxable and the IRS and Feds have been investigating the outfit for various other issues…in the immortal words of Cole Porter for Team Obama (who now play it in lieu of Hail to the Chief)…s’wonderul? s’marvelous? s’frakin ridiculous!…

It’s as if he deliberately set about violating every conceivable aspect of paying income taxes:f he took invalid charity deductions,  failed to declare as in kind payment gifts from charities he lobbied for-vacations and jet rides, failed to notice he hadn’t declared over 80,000 in ‘consulting’ (ie LOBBYING) income, didn’t declare the car/driver as income, didn’t pay the Medicare taxes on said driver….and the topper, he lobbied for pharma companies..PHARMA! How can you be head of HHS and not handle a conflict of interest there? it was within the past 2 years…

From WSJ:

People familiar with Mr. Daschle’s case said the question involves two flights he took aboard EduCap’s corporate jet to vacation destinations to speak with members of the board of directors of the Academy of Achievement, a related organization. In February 2006, Mr. Daschle flew to the academy’s annual retreat in the Bahamas. The next month, he flew with academy officials to Jordan, Egypt and Israel to scout out sites for the group’s international awards ceremony. While there, the delegation met with Jordan’s King Abdullah and Israeli minister Ehud Barack, said Daschle spokesman Jenny Backus.

Which part of this had to do with student loans exactly?

Under federal tax law, individuals involved with a charity aren’t allowed to take anything of personal value from the charity that isn’t connected to the charity’s core mission.

-snip-

The Internal Revenue Service has examined whether EduCap, a Sterling, Va.-based nonprofit student lender, was following its charter. EduCap also faces a separate Finance Committee probe into whether the charity, which has spent money on an expensive jet, it abused its status as a charity.
