Just out of curiosity, why not just discuss the issue at hand, instead of rationalizing criminal behavior by pointing out that a Republican has done something similar? It seems that any time a point is brought up about a Democrat, you deflect by claiming the same behavior by a Republican. What does that prove other than that there are scoundrels on both sides?
The fact is that we are finding multiple Obama appoinees that have tax problems. That could indicate a number of things:
a. Our President likes tax cheats
b. Our President has a staff that is incompetent and incapable of properly vetting a candidate
c. Democrats in general don't pay taxes
d. Politicians in general don't pay thier taxes
e. The tax code is so complex, most of us can't understand it and may likely be tax cheats, ourselves
f. None of the above.
What I find disturbing from folks on both sides of the political aisle is the tendency to justify bad behavior on the part of "our guys" with examples of bad behavior on the part of "their guys". I am personally disgusted with both Republicans and Democrats. Bush's big government tendencies are just as unappealing to me as Obama's. His prescription drug benefit plan is just one step toward Obama's social medicine plan. If we the people continue to allow our elected officials to pit us against one another as if we are sports fans rooting for our respective teams, instead of citizens concerned about the future of our country, we all lose. We should be most critical of those that purport to represent our beliefs, not just those that oppose them. As a Conservative, I should be quick to point out those on the right that represent me poorly. As a Liberal(?), you should be policing your own house as well. If we can't agree that cheaters should not be elected or appointed into positions of power, regardless of political affiliation, this country is doomed.
That said, if you feel that Sarah Palin is a tax cheat, start a new thread and let's discuss it.
