Someone please ask our intelligent president why his nomination of Tom Daschle should not be changed to a nomination to a federal prison term.  I always thought that tax evasion was a crime? OK, unless we just forget?
Daschle is an example of corruption of the worst kind and should be rewarded with eight years of peeking between bars. The damn cheat!

Nice interview and down to earth….BUT what is a substantial number of troops coming home?  I hope everybody or a substantial number listen to David Cay Johnston on because he has some interesting insights on how the economy will get kick-started and it won´t cost the average taxpayer…nothing.
