So Obama is now nominating an investment banker for Treasury Secretary that had to accept a bailout from tax payers at Citi bank? Is it a prerequisite to be a failure to get into the Obama administration?

The Teabaggers' false-outrage that Jack Lew invested some of his money — and he doesn’t seem to have very much of it — in a Cayman Islands fund is amusing. They pretend it to be a huge “gotcha” because President Obama accused Mitt Romney of sheltering much of his fortune overseas.

Unfortunately, this argument backfires on the GOP because Lew has actually advocates policies against his own interest, unlike the GOP. Lew said in the hearings that he wanted to reform the tax code to push investment here in the United States, i.e., close the Cayman advantage.

His testimony yesterday was so impressive that it was even praised by Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who started the hearing as a critic. Sorry, killa, you are going to have to find someone else to pick on — Jack Lew is pretty much the most upstanding guy in government.

So it only matters when it's a "small" amount? What's the magic limit where it becomes okay in liberal logic?

Geitner doesn't pay 100k in taxes until he's going for treasury secretary. Then he finally pays up when caught.

New guy is an investment banker at Citi Group. Citi Group still hasn't paid back tax payers. He should keep working until we get our money back.

That just double proved you didn't look it up. All you have to do is go to a government website that reports revenues.

...For a bailout for Citi ?

Do you start believing your own nonsense as soon as you make it up?

Killa you keep going. Screw these libtards. They have the mothers milk of the fed government dribbling from their little china. They are the like the little children dressed in velvet britches who always cry when they are out of sight of their mother.
