Obama Bumper Sticker Removal Kit

Jason sent me a link to this video yesterday on Facespace. While I'm happy that Grandpa John "you kids get off my lawn" McCain is not the President, I've been a little less than impressed with Obama's performance thus far.

Some of my grievances against the Obama administration:
  • Failure to close Guantanamo Bay within a year, like they said they would.
  • Throwing the public health care option under the bus before the debate really got going.
  • Dragging their ass on the repeal of DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell) and doing nothing about (DOMA) The Defense of Marriage Act.
  • Shitty finance reform.
  • Timothy Geithner, 'nuff said.

Again, I would rather Obama be President over any Republican but, as a liberal, I've been a little less than enamored with this kind of "change." One thing that never changes in politics is that corporations and money reign supreme!

I have the same grievances as you, Dave. So much hope yet not enough change. Ah well, he had a big deficit thanks to W, but still...I know I expected more.
