This is obviously the 'change" we can now expect to see in Washington via Obama! Three days in and he is already openly filling positions with crooks. If Geithner forgot to pay his taxes he's obiously not fit for the job and if he knowingly didn't pay he's a two-bit tax evader. Democrats always want to raise your taxes but look how many of them don't pay theirs! It's the beginning of the end of morals in our country!

This guy is obviously a tax cheat. The IRS mailed him a form that told him about the error and he did the same thing the next year! And for such a small amount. You are going to put him in charge of billions of dollars? How much can he steal from us the taxpayer?

He's incompetent, unethical, or both. In any event, placing him in charge of Treasury and more specifically, the IRS, is an insult to taxpayers and frankly, the employees of the IRS. If you fail to pay your taxes, you can not be an IRS agent. The hypocrisy of this appointment is astounding.

Geithner is either a moron or a crook; either way he is an ignorant pick for Secretary of the Treasury. If he cannot figure out TurboTax, which I highly doubt he had any trouble cheating, then we are following an imbcile's lead with TARP.
