    When ctizens put all their trust and hope on one person through government, they will always be dissapointed.

    Appreciate your post above and tip of the hat for posting the link. Although I'm guessing you may support the recent legislation of war funding, on the subject of "CHANGE" you might find Jeremy Scahill's piece from Alternet very interesting. It IMO confirms your title of "the new guy is the same as the old guy!" I like The Who's version, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" but then I'm an old fart so there you go!

    Hope you enjoy the read.

    Shame: The 'Anti-War' Democrats Who Sold Out

    To add a little fuel to the fire, all is not well in donkeyland as some progressive democrats don't appreciate "The Big Boss's" strongarm and are speaking out!

    All let's not forget Glenn Greenwald

    And Baba, you'll appreciate some of Glenn's comments on "Obama's Transparency"!

    The video from Democracy Now (radical right wing bastion:happy-very:) at the link above also documents the White House visitor log you linked about!

    Your comments made me think of this from a few months back.

    Whats really going on is the progressive majority is watching their Democrat party evolve into Republicans right in front of our very own eyes, and we need to put an end to it by the end of next year. Mostly due by what was handed down to this Administration. Question is, will Obama succomb towards his predessessors or will he snap out of it and listen to the people who put him in office. Enough with this bipartisan crap, stop trying to please the neo-cons and the far religious right. Cut our defense spending, stop spying on our citizens, stop bailing out and rewarding failed Wall Street crooks, start recognizing Gay Rights and legalize Marijuana...our kids generation hopefully will have this all figured out, it would just be nice if we made it easier for them.....and to think most of us laughed at Kucinich, Nader and Paul, they're starting to sound saner by the day.
