Was NOT paying his taxes one of the qualities Obama saw in Geitner when he chose him?

The Senate Finance Committee revealed this week that Geithner failed to pay some $43,000 in federal self-employment taxes for four separate years – and only coughed up $26,000 of that debt when he was named Obama’s Treasury Secretary-designate in November. The brilliant and meticulous Geithner didn’t catch the lapses. The Internal Revenue Service and Team Obama’s vetters did.

    But it's OK. Everybody does it. That's what Obama's media is telling us. Just wait until you go a year without paying your taxes though, what happens then?

    I think the main thing Osama saw was a black man and didn't even look at his qualifications. Another indication this is going to be a long 4 years.
