O? Crap.

First Obama stayed silent on Israel’s taking of a giant steaming dump on Gaza. He claimed that there was only one President, and that it would be improper to say anything. Nice dodge.

On January 23rd Predator drones fires missiles into Pakistan, killing at least 15, or 17. It took only three days for Obama to launch an attack inside a sovereign nation, an ally to boot. Hey, nobody said he isn’t efficient.

Then he dissed journalistic legend Helen Thomas by refusing to answer a question about nukes in the Mideast. The correct answer, common knowledge to anyone paying attention to international politics since JFK, is Israel. At this point I’m starting to not feel very hopeful about change, but how much did I really expect?

Then the DOJ lawyers, to the astonishment of the judges reviewing the case, fully assert the Bush-era States Secrets dodge. This has the audacity to really start pissing me off.

And now. Well, take it away, Mr. San Francisco Chronicle Reporter:

For the second time this week, the Obama administration has gone to court in San Francisco to argue for secrecy in defending a terrorism policy crafted under George W. Bush – in this case, wiretapping that President Obama denounced as a candidate.

What. The. Fuck.

I didn’t have unrealistic expectations for this administration. I knew I was going to be let down. But I was not prepared to be this let down this quickly.
At this point it appears that the Obama administration wants to double down on many of Bush’s policies. And this is a terrible wager to risk.

I wonder if Dennis is already writing a sequel to Savage Mules. At the rate this administration is going there will be more than enough fodder for the record books.

  7. Well, I like to point out that doj can be pronounced dodge. Now for the hard part.

    I TOLD YOU SO! Ya shoulda voted Nader. Now that I got that unpleasant bit done, I hope you won’t be coming by my blog in 2010 and screaming “we gotta vote dem, we gotta vote dem” like you did before the last election. It’ll just set ya up for this kinda heartbreak again.

    Glad to have you fully in the anti-obamessiah camp! You aren’t gonna backslide and have a dem kool aid relapse are ya? If you feel the urge to quaff that dem poison again, give me a call, I’ll be glad to be your dems anonymous sponsor!

    Potshots at the neolib klinton klan hillbillies in the obamessiah admin are flavor of the week btw, just to bring you up to ramming speed…

  9. Because it looks a crestfallen as I am. I can’t even deal with this shit. The cognitive dissonance is too overwhelming.

  10. Toby is bored of the whole blogging thing?

  11. Lost the spark. Not to mention my righteous indignation.

    We’ll see. What’s the point of blogging if it isn’t any fun.

    I’d like to do a more collaborative situation.
