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?

I'm in a video on YouTube!

Well, not me exactly, but my BLOG is in the Read My Lipstick Network blog posted yesterday! I saw Superwoman Sarah Palin and You Can Call Her Governor. There's probably some others in there but I'll have to go back and watch again to see who else. I know Janet (who runs RMLN) designed my logo for me so I bet she did the others in the video, too. I wonder if we could get her to do a fun video with our photos and logos and blog addresses? Wouldn't that be cool? We'd all get to see what each other looked like.

Early reading, a short post on here, then off to church

Oh man, I'm still yawning. I'm not sure why I got out of bed so early, but the mind woke up and the body followed and now here I sit as the rest of my family still enjoys those last few dreams.

I think it's the election that's weighing me down even though I'm excited and truly know we're going to win on Tuesday! Yeah Sarah Palin, she'll be the one that tipped us over the top! You can see how scared they still are of Sarah by the continuing attacks being posed against this lovely lady. No one, and I mean no one, deserves the vitriol that has been leveled against her day after day by the so-called party of love and peace. Hypocrites.

I can't allow myself to travel down that path of thought or I'll be joining my Catholic friends in a confession booth and will be too busy doing penance to vote on Tuesday! I decided to wait until Tuesday to vote rather than brave the long lines. They only have a few locations rather than the multiple voting places they will have on Tuesday so the lines will be much shorter.

I think it's crazy the way people are standing for four hours in line to vote early. On election day all the precincts will have a voting location so there won't be such a big bottle-neck. I wonder if some businesses encouraged their employees to vote early to avoid having everyone off on one day? Barack Obama decided to shut their companies down for them so that was a waste of effort if that's what happened. He's telling his supporters to take the day off from work, getting an early start on his support program for dead beats? Yep, I'm going to find a confession booth.

I saw on someone else's blog that now Obama is saying he is "going to change the world". He's a megalomaniac. What an ego that man has. Even the way he walks and talks to the crowds speaks of ego. Some people have the ability to let all the sucking-up that happens to politicians roll off their back and they retain their modesty and goodness. Barack Obama is clearly letting the worship go to his head. He's going to think he can rule the world, mark my words.
