Too Much

One thing I've observed through this beginning process of the Obama Administration is that these nominees have too much freaking money! That's the only explanation I can come up with. Otherwise, how could all of these people screw up on their taxes and then have to pay $30,000 or $100,000 or whatever to make up for it? I don't even make $30,000 a year let alone owe taxes for that much! How can any of these people understand what the average person is going through each day? I thought Geithner should have stepped down when he had tax problems, but they confirmed him. And I didn't think Daschle should have been nominated because he was, essentially, a lobbyist. He voted for the war and helped Bush do what he did to this country, so I'm not fond of him. But I've forgiven other people (Hillary Clinton), so I suppose I could have given him a break. I don't understand why he dropped out of the process, actually. He's the one who pointed out to his accountant that he might have a problem, as far as I can tell, and he paid the back taxes. And Tom Daschle is certainly better than any of Bush's cabinet members and all of them were confirmed. And I wish Obama would quit hiring Republicans. But more importantly, I wish he would quit hiring millionaries. That's all.

Kim, you might want to take a look at this op-ed piece, if you haven't seen it already. It says it so succintly, and the final two paragraphs in particular.

I keep thinking of the French Revolution. I don't think we're going to resort to Mme. La Guillotine, but the parallels are certainly similar.

Sorry, Kitty. It cut off your URL. So anyone can go here. And I agree. More and more it just looks like the people in power are not going to let it happen. Means we still might have to have that revolution after all. *sigh*
