Obama and Change... His Cabinet Picks

Obama's choices for top posts are seeming to be payback for political favors and support during his election.

He obviously owes the Clinton's big time, ditto on Richardson, and some of the others he's chosen.

Change? This looks like the same old political cronyism that has made politics anathema to so many.

What does Richardson know about commerce? Has he ever run a business? Janet Napolitano? She's got a lot of experience in Homeland Security...

Where's the new? the fresh air promised? the change? Everyone he's picked thus far (unless I'm missing someone) has been a retread. They either worked for the Clintons or they worked for Obama while he ran for office.

Richardson stepped out and stabbed the Clintons in the back during the election, now he has an appointment that keeps him in politics.

On the positive side, it looks like standard politics as usual, which may mean that he's not going to take us into socialism. Maybe. We have four years to see where he'll head.

I get the impression that someone is holding something over his head, forcing him to make these choices. It could be that he's seeing the reality of the job and the scope of responsibility he now has. It could be that he just lied to everyone and said what he needed to get into office. Gee, that would be a real shocker, right?

Not.

The Supreme Court CANNOT DUCK Obama’s Birth Certificate Constitutional Crisis (albeit the media blackout on the issue). The messiah will NOT become President! This 90-minute blogradio program explains why:

SCOTUS will never stop Obama, the whole country would be Rodney King times 10.

Thank you for your efforts. Palin/Jindal or Palin/Steele in 2012! Just imagine.

Of course Palin knew Africa is a continent, just like most 9th graders. She discussed all the individual conflicts going on in various African countries too.

Sarah’s one tough Mama, she handled the wackos like a pro. These liars must be exposed! We want names! McCain made a lot more mistakes than Palin. He let her go in front of ‘Gotcha!’ idiots and twits like Gibson and Couric, I think McCain never went on Fox, the most watched News Channel with loads of independents and conservative Democrats. The votes that McCain needed, instead he spent time on CNN. He didn’t bring up Wright at all, he didn’t hammer the Dems enough for their leading role in creating the credit crisis.

His advisors were wimps; either they didn’t give him good advice and/or they couldn’t sway him from his bad ideas. They must be bitter for screwing up the campaign and so they just blame the woman.

I‘m already getting excited about a Palin/Jindal ticket in 2012 or 2016. Michael Steele? Imagine, the GOP getting in the first Woman POTUS with a male minority VP. The Loonie Left-wing Nuts will not be able hide their overt racism and sexism towards any minorities or women that dare to not be so-called 'progressives'.

So many people that voted for Obama didn't even know what his issues were and they disagreed with him about Iraq and abortion, but didn't even know that they did. All they heard was 'change', and that was all they wanted to hear.

However, any real conservatives will never be so insane as to call Obama worse than Hitler (and certainly not McChimpy), or will we side with terrorists, dictators and 'enemy' countries over OUR President.

Conservatives must try to influence the President with sensible debate and persuasion. The main reason the Left is so vicious is because the so-called 'Progressive' ideology is bankrupt at its core, and deep, deep, deep down where logic and rational thoughts dwell, I think they know it.

I want to believe that Obama won't be as bad as some people think, but I'm quite sure, that at best, he won't be as good as most people hope he will be.

I wish the following site had come out earlier, I had some Obamabot friends finding out that they had big differences with Obama's positions:

Years ago I was knocked off the voting rolls here in this very Blue City when I was a Republican, on this election day I found out I was knocked off as an Un-Affiliated. Next time I should register as a Democrat, maybe I won't get knocked off then.

The biggest dangers come from the Left anyway, so my votes in this Blue State's closed primaries would be more important there.

Telling Moonbats I'm a Democrat would stop some in their tracks too, maybe making it easier to chip away at the false veneer of so-called 'progressivism'.

Let's hope he does well, at least not too badly, with the least amount of despair possible. May God Bless and help guide President Obama. And may God Bless and help save America! Keep the faith!
