You know this change thing isn't working out so well.
I could explain in exacting detail how I feel the 'change' message got derailed (if it was ever real in the first place) but I frankly don't have the energy to more than give a tired touch. I will simply say that IMO Rahm embodied everything wrong: who thought that America would appreciate an uncouth, hot-headed, behind-the-scenes wheeler-dealer? Wasn't Obama all about cool, classy & transparent?
A succinct analysis of Change? The Obama administration is composed of Clinton/90's retreads - that goes for the people and the ideas. Who dat Larence Summers? Dat be a money-grubbing old-boys-club capitalist.
You might say that govt doesn't change overnight - but if we don't see change in drastic fashion in the next year then you will see an even more dramatic change than the 2010 election. Yes Obama team...It's time to start firing before the voters get hiring.
I hear it, and feel it myself: Obama didn't change, so let's change him. I hold out the smallest hope that the defense budget will be cut in half, and other great things will happen to this poor nation...but I have lost hope that Obama can/will bring that change.
What about you dear voter?
