    Why Is Obama Surrounding Himself w/ Tax Cheats?

    Less then two weeks in office and our new president is surrounding himself with TAX CHEATS… What’s up with that? I don’t get it.

    Wasn’t he ‘the one’ who promised “real chance” and a break from the corrupt practices of the past?

    Instead we now learn that our newly appointed Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and now former Sen. Tom Daschle are tax cheats…

    This is unforgivable! I feel so betrayed… I believed this man. I raised money for this man. I voted for him in my state's Democratic primary and in the general election. I convinced most of my friends, coworkers, and relatives to do the same. I was ecstatic when he won. But now I’m starting to feel that he’s no different than the rest. First he breaks his promise concerning lobbyist and now this. Two major cabinet appointments so far and they turnout to be 100% certified crooks! F-king TAX CHEATS no less!!!

    I love this country dearly and never once have I ever lost faith in its inner ability to always be able to renew and better itself… I was always proudest of that fact the most. But now I’m starting to lose faith again. I really am. I don’t know what the problem is? Why can’t people just do as they say and promise? Why is it so hard to be a decent and ethical person these days?

    I don’t know maybe I’m just too tired and fatigued after investing so much time, effort, money, and sweat during these last 8 months to get this man elected that I’m now over reacting. I just don’t know. But whatever it is the fact that our new president—the man I placed so much faith in is now reneging on his campaign pledges & promises, as well as filling major cabinet positions with crooks has greatly saddened me.

    I guess I’m just tired of seeing crooks, con artists, liars, and shysters controlling this country, enriching themselves and then running it into the ground time-after-time.

    Who knows, maybe I’m special in thinking that way… Maybe my real problem is I just care too much about this country.
