Obama 'Embarrassed' By Geithner's Tax Problems, Highlights Hypocritical Double Standard Of The Democrats

The only place I've found this story is on Fox News and the Internet. I don't recall it ever being discussed in CNN or any of the left-leaning news networks.

Timothy Geithner evaded paying $34,000 in taxes while working for the International Monetary Fund and it has now come to light that he employed a housekeeper who did not maintain proper immigration papers. And yet, the leftist-leaning President-elect claims that it isn't such a big deal.

Was it not such a big deal when Linda Chavez had to withdraw her cabinet appointment when it came to light that she was employing an illegal alien? Clearly, we can see the double standards held by those who reside on the political left.

From Fox News:

President-elect Barack Obama labeled the tax problems of his choice for Treasury chief an embarrassment Wednesday, but said Timothy Geithner's "innocent mistake" shouldn't bar him from the post leading urgent efforts to revive the economy.


Senators' reactions suggested they viewed his missteps more as embarrassing mistakes than as disqualifying misdeeds.

Again, the question must be asked: "Would they have this same attitude were the nominee appointed by a Republican President?"

I think we can safely say that the answer to that last question is: "No."

This whole sorry episode is a clear example of how the Obama administration will conducting itself over the next four years. They will think themsleves above the law and come up with every justification for excusing themselves while simultaneously screwing the American people with disastrous socialist policies.

Buckle up, folks! Timothy Geithner's case is just the first hill of the roller-coaster ride.
