PresBO steps in the tax morass again with tainted nominee. From Fox News (bold is mine):

“WASHINGTON  — Ron Kirk, nominated as U.S. Trade Representative in the Obama administration, owes an estimated $10,000 in back taxes from earlier in the decade and has agreed to make his payments, the Senate Finance Committee said Monday.

The disclosure made the former Dallas mayor the latest in a string of top-level Obama administration appointees found to have underpaid their taxes, following Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Tom Daschle, who withdrew as candidate for Health and Human Services secretary. Nancy Killefer, Obama’s pick for chief performance officer, also bowed out amid tax problems.

There was no immediate reaction from the White House to the underpayments, which were uncovered by the committee’s staff in a review of Kirk’s nomination papers.”

The immediate reaction had better be “Holy Crap, PresBO, they got us again!”

Then, again from Fox News, there’s more socialist appointments (or communist, depending upon how you like your “czars”):

President Obama named Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as his choice for health and human services secretary Monday, the second nominee to lead the agency that deals with Medicare and food safety.

He also named Nancy-Ann DeParle, commissioner of the Department of Human Services in Tennessee and a Clinton administration official, as the new health czar, heading up the new White House Office for Health Reform.

Obama, whose previous nominee Tom Daschle withdrew amid tax problems, said his second choice “knows health care inside and out” and praised her record of bipartisanship as well as her experience as state insurance commissioner in Kansas.

“As a governor she’s been on the front lines of our health care crisis. She has a deep knowledge of what the burden of crushing costs does to our families and businesses,” Obama said.

Sebelius said she shares Obama’s “passion and personal commitment to health care reform” and cited her two decades working on the issue first as a legislator and later as governor.

“We can’t fix the economy without fixing health care,” she said.”

Sebelius is a stooge who can’t exit Topeka quick enough.

Finally, how many Clinton retreads can PresBo fit on his POS administration, anyway? If there ain’t a limit, there should be!
