The Old is New Again (and Hope Wains)
How Obama has turned Hope for Change into the Same Ol' Same Ol'
It is totally Hillarious (pun intended) that Barrack (Change) Obama is tapping so many Leftovers (again pun intended) that have been hanging around Washington for decades. I can almost hear all of the ultra wackos dropping their signs and pitchforks in disbelief.
They are to his campaign what conservatives are to the Republican Party. People who are to be promised the world yet given nothing in return for a vote.
Here is a list of all of the selected and soon to be selected movers and shakers of the Obama administration. Remember he mentioned that we needed new blood, attacked Hilliary Clinton as the old guard of the politics of hate. That Washington needed a NEW approach. Now the emphasis seems to be on experience and getting people who know how to make the machine work. Note this quote from an article by Carolyn Lochhead in the Chronicle Washington Bureau,
"At some point you have to have folks who can translate presidential policies and rhetoric into an actionable agenda and get something done," said Jonathan Breul, executive director of the IBM Center for the Business of Government, a think tank on government management. "You want people who are experienced running big organizations."
Really, well that is a fine how-do-you-do to all those who voted for change. OK so I will get to the list, these are all selected and being considered for positions:
President: Barack Obama
Vice President: Joe Biden
(Source for the list is from an article, "President Obama's Cabinet (Version 3.0)" by Mark
Nickolas, Managing Editor of Political Base)
So do recognize any of the names? Of course you do 95% of them are Washington insiders, all Big Government all the way. Do you now see why voting for either Government Party gets you nothing but the same old thing.
