Much was made of Obama's extensive job application. [url=http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/11/13/transition.questionnaire/index.html]White House job application leaves no stone unturned - CNN.com[/url]

I guess it only applies to the peons and not cabinet level posts.

And this is indicative of change?

I've had my say. So I'm just going to wait and see what happens. During the campaign Obama said he'd name names when pork was inserted into bills. There's so much pork in this new bill you can put cole slaw on top of it. We'll just have to wait and see.

I, like TTE am observing the process.....for the moment. Much was made during the campaign of Immediate and Sweeping Positive change.
I wish him luck

Don't you all realize by pointing out lack of change you are only contributing to the non-change? You aren't allowed to do that. You're "part of the problem".

The one guy was voted to head the treasury dept which was the same dept he was ripping off. Figure that.

Well he wasn't ripping it off but his lack of oversight over his own personal issues doesn't bode well for his attentivenees to detail. Why he thought the IMF would deduct his payroll taxes for him and why he apparently never even looked at his paycheck is beyond me.

No one said you couldn't lie on the application. The sense of entitlement in some of these guys is unbelievable. Obama should drop Daschle down an elevator shaft and find himself a better replacement.

Sorry but I do not buy any of that and feel he is lying and yes, by not paying his taxes he was ripping off the IRS.

I don't understand why all of these apointments have to be political ones? Why can't they find people who can just do the job?

Tim Geithner failed to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes (he paid his income tax) and when he was told by the Obama people that he owed 25K he paid it with interest on top of it. I don't see how he ripped off the IRS, he paid them with fines on top of it. Even Mark Rich didn't ripoff the IRS. Wesley Snipes thought he could ripoff the IRS. You really can't ripoff the IRS.

Why would he lie about it? He was paying his other taxes. I can see a completely reasonable situation where this could happen. I just don't think he was out to avade taxes. He made a dumb mistake. The kind that would preclude me from hiring him simply based on demonstrated idiocy but nefarious it was not. My biggest problem is that once this was found Obama should have dropped him. If he really is about change he should have dropped him before it was even news. Forget politics. How about getting people who are competent? Bush got railed (rightfully so) for having a incompetent boob in charge when Katrina came around. Well now we are faced with an economic Katrina and we have a guy in charge of the Treasurery (and IRS) who screwed up his taxes royally and his excuse was "Gee man I didn't really pay any attention." Color me just as unimpressed by him as I am aboiut Brown.

I totally agree.

The only Fed agency that does it's job well is the IRS. They are the shining example of how a gov't agency should run.

Is there a perfect job candidate out there? Are you a perfect candidate for a job you've applied for? If you were employer would you wait for the perfect job candidate?

Tim Geithner was a harmless failure that can be overlooked. Daschle's failure to pay taxes was a blatant and loathsome.

[QUOTE]Daschle recently filed amended tax returns to report $128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest. The amended returns reflect additional income for consulting work, the use of a car service and reduced deductions for charitable contributions.[/QUOTE]
