The Obama Cabinet: "It's A Circus!"

...missing only that slightly insane merry-go-round music chortling through the pipes. First clown to fall: Nancy Killefer, slated to be "chief performance officer":

Nancy Killefer withdrew her nomination Tuesday to become the Obama administration's chief performance officer, citing unspecified problems with District of Columbia unemployment tax.

... a letter to President Barack Obama, Killefer said her tax issue "could be used to create exactly the kind of distraction and delay those duties must avoid."

Nice "performance" there, Nancy! Way to shift blame onto those pesy "distractors"!

Second clown to go down, a mere three hours later: Tom Daschle, the ultimate limousine liberal -one who won't even pay the taxes on his limousine! Shoot, that's for the little people....

Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination on Tuesday to be President Barack Obama's Health and Human Services secretary, dealing potential blows to both speedy health care reform and Obama's hopes for a smoother start as president.

{like that's a bad thing? - ed}

"I was a little stunned. I thought he was going to get confirmed," said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont...

{way to be in touch with the outside world there, Maxie !}

Daschle was the third high-profile Obama nominee to bow out. Obama initially had tapped Bill Richardson to be Commerce secretary, but the New Mexico governor withdrew amid a grand jury investigation into a state contract awarded to his political donors

If it were a Republican administration, the headline would all be about how badly they were struggling out of the gate, and how rapidy they would lose the trust of the American people. But since the media's tounge is deep inside Obama's mouth, all we get is winsome moaning and wire reports...

Here's the kicker, from the Great Changer as he tried earlier to protect Crooked Tom:

"Tom made a mistake, which he has openly acknowledged," Obama said. "He has not excused it, nor do I. But that mistake and this decision cannot diminish the many contributions Tom has made to this country."

If you or I would have made that mistake, we would have gone to prison for it, regardless of our other contributions to society, regardless of how many people may count on us.
But if you are a Democratic insider, all crimes are forgiven. Responsibilty for one's actions is just theory, to be applied to the little people only.
Just ask Charles Rangel....

Dooooooshbags. All of them. Real stooopid, dumb as a bag of hair doooooshbags. Obama and his Merry Band of Dooooshbags. Pus has higher IQ than these liberal pukes.

I am reminded of a quote from Mark Twain: "Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."
