Well, lookie here. This administration tells us we need to pay more taxes.

It's the American way. They need more, more, more.

The president doesn't want to cut one federal program. And now, according to a New York paper, the president has the perfect man in place for treasury secretary replacing Tim Geithner who had trouble remembering to pay his federal income taxes.

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you John Lew.

The New York Post confirms John Lew has trouble remembering things. Surely the Senate was right to confirm the president's chief of staff as his new treasury secretary. Indeed, we can't think of a man who is better suited to succeed Tim Geithner or more in keeping with the pattern of Obama nominees.

He was forgetful when members of the Senate Finance Committee asked him about, say, the $1.4 million loan he received from New York University when he was an executive there.

Seems that the man who will soon be overseeing dollar accounts in the billions and trillions couldn't recall what interest rate he was charged.

Nor did he know whether that loan, which the university ended up forgiving, amounted to a special deal. And he didn't even try to explain why, as an NYU executive vice president, he made more than the man he presumably worked for NYU President John Sexton.

Remember Geithner was 34 grand behind in back taxes until someone in the press reminded him.

Well done Mr. Lew. You'll fit right in with this bunch in D.C.

I hope the sequester isn't too much of a drag.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

NOT WE, .....we working people are not included in the millionaire tax increase the President is asking for nor are we in the Millionaire Tax Cut the Republicans are asking for.

Thankfully midterm elections are just a year and 2/3 away. Obama's popularity is at 44 percent and falling. Democrats will run away from him real soon. Lame Duck, a real lame duck Obama is.

Obama is right on schedule. Look for more controversial picks for his administration. Far, far, leftist people. Obama will send the U.S. right over the cliff and refashion it as another Socialist State as he appoints himself as dictator. I fully expect that will happen unless America awakens. The GOP doesn't know what it believes anymore. All they are interested in is getting back power instead of what is right for the American people.
