What a bunch of rhetoric.
Obama talks over and over about his providing "hope". We hear about how he is a president wanting to restore the value of the people.
And then he refuses to do something as simple as comission for the truth. I dont even think anything would come of it. Nothing EVER comes of these commissions. But isnt it quite disheartening that they wont even take that step?

A real "Truth Commission" would be as dangerous for the Demopublicans as it would be for the Republicrats.
Both parties are corrupt enough to make the Mafia look like boy scouts by comparison (at least the Mafia has a moral code).
Perhaps President Obama would consider the creation of a new Ministry of Truth to be more consistent with his Vision for America™.
What a great post! Big star for the links and the play on words regarding the parties.
I first read the book back in 1972 at the age of 8 at the urgence of a relative who had a profound fear such a state would come to pass in my lifetime.
I am truly glad he didn't live to see it all come true, how it would have broken his heart.
(Just my personal opinion, nothing more.)

A "Truth Commission" in D.C. !!! You have got to be kidding. First, we can't afford to pay all the overtime. Second, when they completed their task, D.C. would be vacant.

ok, just real quick for any loyal obama fans that are still looking for change, what have you gotten for you vote? a new dog? your reps eating high dollar beef at the white house? a man that has to read every speech from a telepromter? this should wake you up? or did it? plz wake up and realize this guy is closer to hitler than jfk, george washington, ab lincoln, t jefferson, i am just stunned from anyone that thinks this man has any kind of benifit for anyone in the us. he has bad mouthed the us to almost every foreign nation, then tells everyone he cannot change anything cause of bush's choices?
give me a break, did we elect a secretary? if i had 50 million to run for president i would have this wrapped up in under 50 days. with this 12 trilliion totall deficit given to every man woman and child, with a big 1 million dollar spending spree to stimulate the economy! but no we have 2.6 million in your tax payer dollars going to whores in china. wow that is change you can beleive in
