Obama the Vetter
Bill Richardson, Tom Daschle, and Nancy Killefer. Why do these names stand out? Well, that Nancy chick's name doesn't really, I had to copy/paste that from where I get my news, but still. What do these three have in common? Well they're all Democrats, okay, but also, they have "issues" which have caused Obama to look like a very shitty person to pass judgement. They were tapped by Obama to lead their respective portfolios of Commerce, Health & Humnan Services and Chief Performance Officer. But they all had something wrong with them, in Richardson's case, there's an open FBI investigation into the way his administration handled something or other, I couldn't have been bothered to find out what, it was just funny to see that his desertion of the Clintons in the primaries have now come back to bite him in his face, and to think, he thought his turncoatedness would have resulted in him being named VP ahahaha. And Tom, oh Tom, he apparently had some tax issues, with a rented car and driver, and owed backtaxes in excess of 100,000 USD. And Nancy, supposed to be Obama's go to gal on efficiency and performance issues, also had tax issues, this one surrounding one of her houses. Whoops. Pick again Obama.
