Subject: Obama so far
The Messiah was elected two and a half months ago. So how's that dramatic,
revolutionary change he constantly promised gone so far? Did he shake up
Washington? Did he appoint new faces, with new perspectives and new ideas?
Did he deliver the sweeping changes he constantly promised?

Not a snow ball's chance in hell. It's been nothing but old time, old
school Washington insider politics as usual.
Take a look at his cabinet picks. Not a fresh face in the crowd - just a
bunch of hacks and hold-overs from the Clinton reign:

Eric Holder, Attorney General. This is the same guy who opposes the Second
Amendment right of the people to bear arms. He also helped Slick Willie
pardon the Puerto Rican terrorists who committed bombings and murders. You
can trust this slime ball about as far as you can throw him - left handed.

Bill Richardson, Secretary of Commerce. This appointment was Richardson's
reward for stabbing Hillary in the back and delivering the Latino vote for
Obama. Problem is the crooked bastard got caught taking kickbacks in
exchange for New Mexico business deals. So he had to fall on his sword and
withdraw to protect Obama. Fact is, Obama got some of the same kickback
money but the mainstream press won't risk splashing The Messiah. Put
another way, the investigation of Obama's acceptance of these kickbacks will
go about as far as the Federal charges filed against ACORN for voter fraud
in thirteen states.

Tim Geither, Secretary of the Treasury. This slimy bastard is an admitted
tax cheat who "forgot" to play taxes four years in a row. Time was in this
country when being a repeated tax cheat would have ended a politicians
career - and it still would for a conservative. But under Obama's rules
being a tax cheat "ain't no big deal". Now that's one change you can
believe in.

Democrat Illinois Gov. Blagojevich is about to be impeached for trying to
sell Obama's senate seat. Obama's own campaign manager, David Axelrod,
stated on national TV that The Messiah had several conversations with Blago
about who he wanted to fill his vacant seat. Blago wanted more than Obama's
hint of future favors or the seat. So Obama then said, he never discussed
the matter with Blago. Needless to say, Axelrod suddenly stated that (big
fucking surprise) he had been mistaken and that The Messiah never really
discussed it with Blago.

Leon Panetta - to head up the CIA. Panetta is a die hard liberal who has
about the same qualifications to run the CIA as my cocker spaniel Clancy.
Panetta's objective is to drive a stake in the heart of the CIA and weaken
and damage the organization as much as possible. To assist Panetta in this
task, Obama announced that he is closing Gitmo and all other CIA holding
facilities. (They haven't decided what to do with the terrorists currently
held there but one Democrat senator said he'd take them in his state's
minimum security prison.) In addition, The Messiah has banned any type of
interrogation technique that makes a prisoner uncomfortable. Obama also
announced that he will recognize and negotiate with all terrorist states and
the leaders of terrorist organizations with out any pre-conditions. He
believes that if America does all these things unilaterally the terrorists,
and out pals in the United Nations, will like us better.

I don't listen to Limbaugh or Coulter. I do own a gun and believe in God.
There are 55,000,000+ of us who did not vote for your Messiah.

He's been the president elect for two and a half months. My comments were
regarding his cabinet appointments, which he has already made. America is
supposed to be a country based on a two party system and a free press. We
currently have all the power (white house, senate, congress) in the hands of
one party. Further, we have a mainstream press that is totally in the tank
for the new president. We in the loyal opposition have a duty and
responsibility to speak out. And if we don't speak out, who will? Chris "a
thrill runs up my leg when I hear Obama speak" Matthews? MSNBC? NBC? The
New York Times?

I think if you check, Mike, you'll see that the balance of power provisions
in the constitution refer to having the 3 branches of government checking
each other, not whether all three branches have majorities of one party or
another. Those majorities are determined by the people who vote. What a
concept. And of course, we are not "supposed to be a country based on a two
party system"; parties aren't mentioned in the constitution at all, and
didn't become a key factor for decades after the signing.

As far as the free press, it's freedom from government censorship and
intimidation. The press is free to like/dislike whomever they choose. I
suspect you know there are plenty of conservative media outlets available,
as you cut and paste from them everyday in your posts here.

Actually, they were already a huge factor in the Presidential race

Yea, the CIA sent them a special note by air mail, in the form of
missiles in Pakistan... The Iraqi war is all but over on it's own, so
he's "ending" it, and the Pakistan theater is about light up like a
Christmas tree, thus the missile strikes, approving Bush's Afgan
policy. Funny, how things are already so different...

So he plans on escalating the conflict in Afghanistan, and is seriously
considering expanding it into Pakistan... but he's "ending" the war on
terror. How exactly does that work?

I think "re-branding" may be a more accurate term.

Re: Pakistan, take a look at this:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/23/first-missile-strikes-on_n_160458.html

Also, you might want to re-read the initial piece you posted. Obama did
not declare an end to the WoT. Editorialists declared that he declared an
end. It's kind of an important distinction.

Sheesh

Even I, as a Rabid VRWC member can be more fair to Obama than that.

He is simply carrying on the policies announced by the Gummint before
he was elected.

Oh, wait...

Could be.

Good to know that Mike is not letting his partisan bitterness influence
his judgment!

But unfortunately for people like Mike, Obama is leading a new era in
Washington:

"On Capitol Hill, members of both parties are trying to adjust to the new
order in Washington and figure out whether they can ease the partisan
warfare that has infected Congress.

Perhaps nowhere was the new dynamic more striking than in the Senate on
Thursday. Here were members of both parties, proposing and disposing of
amendments before they voted 61 to 36 to approve a pay equity bill in line
to be the first measure signed by President Obama.

“It is a good start,” said Senator Johnny Isakson, Republican of Georgia.
“It is healthy for the country that the debate is two-sided, not
one-sided.”

For the past two years, majority Democrats often denied Republicans the
chance to alter legislation on the floor, mainly so they could not force
politically charged votes or scuttle important legislation.

Now, heeding Mr. Obama’s call for cooperation, Senator Harry Reid, the
Nevada Democrat and majority leader, is tentatively testing the notion of
letting Republicans offer amendments to legislation and having the parties
engage in a battle of ideas on the floor."
