I thought that the smartest soon-to-be President in the world might be vetting his picks for Cabinet level positions...but I might be wrong.WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama's choice to run the Treasury Department and lead the economic rescue effort disclosed to senators Tuesday that he failed to pay $34,000 in taxes from 2001 to 2004, a last-minute complication in an otherwise smooth path to confirmation.
Timothy Geithner paid most of the past-due taxes days before Obama announced his nomination in November.
Let me see if I have this straight. The guy who will be in charge of collecting taxes from you and me "forgot" to pay taxes himself for several years. Call me naive, but I am thinking this is not a good move for the Obama administration.
