Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

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.
