Godspeed to President Elect Barack Obama.  Maybe he'll come out of some kind of "moderate" closet a year or two into his presidency.


But, for now, his appointments are wall to wall right wingers.  Yes, they're dem right wingers, but is that really such an improvement over pug right wingers?

Stupid us; we bought the scam that he was going to be something like FDR number 2.  You know, a hero of change, a transcender of the status quo, someone who would save America from its political system/prison.


But, the guy's turning out to be status quo incarnate.  And even worse, he's turning out to be a clone of the 2006 Congress.  You remember them.  They were the ones puked out by the DLC Clinton machine who cowardly and slavishly obeyed every whim of George Bush.

Some folks seem to think we shouldn't hold Obama accountable for anything until after his inauguration.  Gee, he isn't even President yet, so he can't be held responsible for anything.


Duh.  Dear God, the man's already put into place most of the infrastructure of his administration, so yes, I think we CAN (and must!) hold him accountable for all of his appointments, etc. -- unless the tooth fairy is making those appointments.


To be fair, his excellent appointment for Attorney General is going to give nightmares to racist sheriff types, but what about all the rest of us?  What about the working class and America’s so-called middle and lower classes?  From the point of view of his “economic team”, it totally looks like his first commitment is to Wall Street, not Main Street.

Our only (slim) hope left is that eventually Obama will commit to policies diametrically opposed to his own appointees.  Indeed, he probably can do that, but I bet the odds makes in Vegas would laugh at such a possibly.
