Officials said privately the reason for the withdrawal was unspecified tax issues.

And then there’s Scrappleface: Obama Plan Has Already Boosted IRS Tax Collections
In office less than two weeks, President Barack Obama has already increased tax receipts at the U.S. Treasury with an innovative plan to get tax-dodgers to pay up, in full, immediately.
“The president’s plan is simple but ingenious,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, “He targets wealthy individuals who filed inaccurate tax forms, cheating the government out of tens of thousands of dollars. Then he just nominates them for cabinet positions. They suddenly see the error of their ways, and they cut checks for the full amount owed, plus interest.”
It’s cunningly brilliant.
UPDATE: LOL! Daschle withdraws.
Two in one day. “Absolutely” hilarious.
