"Republican" Orrin Hatch is officially on the "Not for the people Republican" list of politicians that need to be shown the door. Evidently years of working in Washington has eroded his judgment and his thirst for wanting to get along with the new administration has allowed him to compromise any forum of values he once had.
What did he do to deserve this? Today he said concerning the tax evading Treasury Secretary nomination Timothy Geithners nomination "I intend to vote positively for this nominee," Yea that's right Hatch doesn't seem to have a problem with a guy who willfully neglected to pay $34,000 in taxes running the IRS. I am sure Hatch would definitely have a problem with you and I not paying out taxes. I am sure the dogs of war would be chasing us down the street in no time if I owed that amount. Heck the State has owed me back taxes for three years and they still wont pay up no matter what I do but he second I don't pay mine they garnish my wages. But in his eagerness to appease his new master Obama Hatch parsed words and made excuses for law breaking saying "There's room to criticize, certainly. What happened shouldn't have happened, but I believe that he made honest mistakes and I believe that this human being is the right person for this country at this time."
This action puts Hatch on the list of Republicans that no longer represent the people. All you Mormons in Utah need to vote this douche out next chance you get and stop making excuses like "well he is Mormon too so he must be for us." News flash, he is for his own power and nothing else. Don't worry the standard applies to us here in Arizona as well, as soon as we can that snake in the grass McCain will be out on his ear.
