The Obama administration has compiled an excellent record thus far of vetting its appointments. The same man who had the temerity to criticize how John McCain had vetted Sara Palin now has had numerous appointments tank because they had nasty secrets. A significant portion of the these folks had serious tax delinquencies.
It is difficult to imagine how that could be when Joe Biden himself declared it to be patriotic to pay more taxes!
At any rate, the latest candidate to shit his political bed is Tom Daschle, the former Senate Democratic leader, who was Obama's initial pick to become Secretary of Health and Human Services. Obviously, in Obama's continued implementation of change, he picked yet another withered politico who spent decades in Washington. His large unpaid tax bill caused his withdrawal. No word on Vice President Biden making any remarks on his being un-American.
Despite no evidence to support it, there is now speculation that Obama may select US Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut's 3rd District to serve in the post.
Has DeLauro been approached by Obama? No. Has DeLauro approached Obama? No. Has there been any communication between the two on the subject, or inquiry by the administration? No.
But she did apparently let Rahm Emanuel stay at her Washington residence, so she MUST be under consideration.
This is the second round of unfounded spin propagated by the legitimate media as well as the Connecticut's liberal blogosphere to attempt to promote DeLauro.
She's been working hard on the peanut scare! This qualifies her apparently.
And she may or may not be qualified for the post. But I think someone whose visage could make milk curdle should not be responsible for the agency that combats foodborne illness.
I think these liberals are drinking too much Romulan ale.
