The Bush and Obama Cabinets Compared
My wife was just warning me that I am biased and my dismay at all the crooks in Obama's cabinet might just reflect that I didn't remember previous administrations. So here is some info for comparison
from Wikipedia and the White House:
OBAMA (Over 4 months):
Hillary Clinton: Cattle futures profits apparent gift. What other Clinton scandals were hers?
Timothy Geithner: tax evasion (about $30,000)
Eric Holder: Clinton pardons of 10-most-wanted fugitive Marc Rich and of the unrepentant Puerto Rican terrorists.
Thomas Daschle: tax evasion (about $100,000)
Bill Richardson: grand jury investigation of bribery
Thus, the nominees for State, Treasury, Attorney-General, Health and Human Services, and Commerce are shady people.
But there is no scandal associated with the names of the new Secretaries of Defense and Transportation (the two Republicans), or of the Interior, Agriculture, Labor, HUD, Energy, Education, Veterans Affairs, or Homeland Security.
Is dishonesty a requirement for all the important jobs except Defense?
BUSH (Over 8 years):
Bernard Kertik hired an illegal alien as a housekeeper.
Linda Chavez: gave money
to an illegal immigrant from Guatemala who lived in her home. She claimed that the alien was not an employee and she had merely provided her with emergency help after domestic abuse.
