Topic: Obama Worries Liberals


Not they "change" they were looking for I guess.



Quote:
Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.
Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.
Now some are shedding a reluctance to puncture the liberal euphoria at being rid of President George W. Bush to say, in effect, that the new boss looks like the old boss.

I'm not angry. I'm actually pretty impressed with how he is handling things so far. It's the bipartisan non-abuse of power that this country needs, not just a complete swing from left to right that equals a complete change in government style every 4 or 8 years.

Let's just wait and see. So far I think he's making sensible choices and he's trying to bring peace to the American government from all major players.

Anyone who thinks Obama resembles Bush simply because he not following the ultra-left agenda is seriously deluded.

What Obama is doing now is what Bush failed to do over the past 8 years, and that is keeping the own party radicals at bay. The liberals ought to remember that Bush greatest failure as a president was his divisiveness. His ability to wave the middle finger at those who disagreed with him without even bothering to listen to the other side. But apparently the ultra-left is determined that Obama repeat the same errors Bush made and Obama is too smart for that.

It seems curious to me that the "change" candidate is using a lot of wahsington "insiders" for his cabinet. I think that we are just going to have more of the same. Congress won't get anything accomplished, besides spending a lot of our money bailing out (insert financial sector here).

I wonder when people are going to realize that there isn't a dimes worth of difference between most politicans.

I just want Washington to stop wasting my tax dollars and leave me and my guns the hell alone.

For a lot of talk about "CHANGE" all I see are Clinton lackeys. Nothing new at all... no wonder why the Left is getting angry. They've already gone through that and they voted for the "ONE" because he was Hillary Clinton and thus a repeat of Bill "*******" Clinton.

The people that supported the "ONE" during the elections are so left they truly want the USA to fail.... so either one of two things will happen.

Either the "ONE" will fulfill their wishes and become the socialist state that they want or the "ONE" will just cluster the country like Carter....

Either we, we're boned.

I wish him the best of luck and I hope that he doesn't cluster the USA.

Well, if the radical change is what people feared and it looks like it's not going to happen, what's the problem?
Like I said, whether you like him or not, you're stuck with him for the next four years, give the man a chance.

The same people can do different things. The change must be in policy and not necessarely the people.

Secondly, define "truly wanting to fail". I am not sure what you mean by that. Imo the US has already done that under Bush, but I know we differ on this issue. Hence my question.

Thirdly, you talk about socialist states as if that is a disease. You do know that all nations in Scandinavia are "socialist" and score better than the US on most points. You choose the kind of socialism you want. The old Marxism has changed over the ages.

Ted, when things aren't going well and a new boss takes over, the effective ones do this first: they axe all the managers.

I know the tactic, but I don't agree with it. It is too easy and not all managers suck in companies that don't do well. It looks good, granted. Why else do you sack the manager from some soccer club when the results are bad. But is proves ineffective most of the times...
