You've got to start somewhere right? And opening up records is a great idea; I'm all for FOI, but it should be across the board, don't you think?
Isn't BHO's administration supposed to be based on "transparency?"
As for "wage caps," that is completely meaningless. Look at the people it applies to : Clinton, Geithner, Emmanuel, et al. These people are all
multi-millionaires! Does anyone really believe they accepted these positions for the money? Many took a pay cut
when they jumped on
Iraq and Gitmo? Both just pushed to the back burner and onto someone else's plate. We've now got 12 to 16 months to see what is
going to change about these two "Orders."
So, I agree, over-optimism at this very early point can have a blinding effect down the line when objectivity will be necessary.
he has a lot to do if he wants to truly implement change
One of the most surprising things, is that BHO seems to have truly p*****d-off some (e.g., Pelosi) who expected far left action right out of the gate.
Good, so far.
personally i do care where he was born, because yes right now he is doing the job properly but its a dangerous slope if he truly wasnt born
here, it opens the doors to serious issues during the following elections in the future of the USA
You know, I hadn't thought of future implications of the issue, but it certainly invites deeper scrutiny/vetting of candidates, doesn't it?
As for BHO, it's too late now. He's in the Office. Looks like spilled milk at this point.
... so we need to not forget about issues at hand just because hes a good magician with a good slight of hand, just because hes doing alot of
good in one hand doesnt mean we should forget he has 2
i may be cynical in this way of thinking, but i think we need to not jump the gun and shower him with praise too early
A critical (some would say jaded) view is absolutely necessary, given what we've seen in the past 16 years or so. Blind devotion will take you to
blind alleys. Not where I want to go or see our country go.
