So, in an effort to bring chchchchanges to DC, Obama has set a visionary course by hiring the new best and brightest, most of them from the Clinton Administration. Our Dear Leader has set a brave new course for the 1990s. Inspiring. Anybody for the return of grunge?
Here's the scorecard:
Clinton Adminstration Post
Obama Administration Post
Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy
Chief of Staff
Co-President, trustee of Presidential testicles
Secretary of State
Deputy Attorney General, gave informal approval for Marc Rich pardon.
Ousted Senate Majority Leader and butt-bunny of Bill Clinton
Secretary of Health and Human Services
Ambassador to the UN
Secretary of Commerce
Treasury Secretary (afterward, ousted from Harvard Presidency for sexist comments)
National Economic Council
And that is just the start. What happened to the Change We Could Believe In? Here was the consummate Washington outsider, bringing a new vision and a new way of working to the snake pit, and he was going to transform it all. What the hell happened?
To me, it is obvious. There is no way that George Soros, his handler, would ever allow Obama near the actual reins of power. Obama was put forward because he was pretty, there wasn't a white liberal who dared vote against him, and he could read a speech. Otherwise, he's an empty suit. Take the teleprompter away, and you are left with a series of stutters and uhs and ums and overused clichés that would rival any NFL starting lineman. At this point, Soros has put in place the same circle of cronies that will help him get a stranglehold of our economy like he has done to others. It isn't a cabinet, it's the Baby Sitter's Club. To cover the fact that Obama doesn't know what the hell he is doing, a carefully crafted structure has been built up around him of "experienced" Washington hands to make sure that the socialist takeover of our government continues without interruption, or inconvenient questions.
And what is this "experience"? Hillary and her peek-a-boo game with billing records and her ability to turn $1,000 dollars into $100,000 by investing in cattle futures? Lawrence Summers and his ties to efforts on the part of a close colleague and friend to defraud the US government as it sought to assist the fledgling capitalist society in Russia? Rahm Emanuel, described by colleagues as a cross between a"hemorrhoid and a toothache", who can be credited for his masterful command of Freddie Mac, leading to the present crisis? Fortunately, Bill Richardson's record, although spotty, is AAA ball in comparison. So far, I am not impressed. The guys that Americans have entrusted with the monumental task of "cleaning things up" are neck deep in the corruption they rail against!
When I first heard the "Change We Can Believe In" slogan, I knew that it a big load of change. All those voters, young and old, who believed that mantra are fools. The only change there will be is the change that we will be left with from our paychecks when Obama is done with us.
