Tom Daschle, former Senate Democratic leader and current Obama nominee for leading the Health & Human Services Department says he is sorry for failing to pay more than $120,000 dollars in back taxes.
Timothy Geitner, Obama nominee to be Secretary of the Treasury says he is sorry for failing to pay $30,000 dollars in back taxes.
I lost track – did Eric Holder, Obama nominee for Attorney General, ever apologize for enabling the pardon of Marc Rich, multimillion dollar tax evader? Not that it matters, since Democratic President Bill Clinton granted Marc Rich a full Presidential pardon. But it was ol’ Eric who made it all happen.

Now, imagine a nominee from a Republican President showing up on Capitol Hill for confirmation hearings, carrying baggage like this. They’d be crucified in the hearings, and they’d be crucified again in the media.
But here we have THREE nominees put forth by Obama who have serious blemishes on their records. There is virtual silence in the media and the confirmation hearings are little more than posturing and formality.
If you were seriously delinquent in paying your taxes would you want to face the IRS with nothing more than an “I’m sorry”? You know what would happen to you, right?
Can there be ANY doubt the media is nothing more than a Democratic lap dog?
There is really only ONE thing these cheaters are sorry about, and it’s not the “errors of judgment”. They are only sorry they got caught.
I’m sorry too. I’m sorry so many of my fellow citizens, in their zeal to find hope and change have embraced a radical liberal leftist without moral compass who intends to surround himself with others who have similar bents. These people will be making policies, rules and laws about you and me, after having already demonstrated the fact they think those same laws don’t apply to themselves.
So to all you who voted for Obama I have a question: Is this OK with you?
