Fact, Opinion and Annoyance

It depends on the definition of change

My inaugural post is quite appropriate – I imagine many of them will follow a similar theme.

Obama’s Cabinet Picks Heavy on Washington Experience

So you take the people who spent years legislating us into the country we are now and put them in charge of directing new policy.  Riiiiiiight.  So I guess “change” means promoting those who have failed miserably instead of kicking them out on their backsides.  Well, it’s a different way to go that’s for sure.

Especially in the case of Tom Daschle.  The man did such a poor job as Senate Majority Leader that he lost his subsequent re-election bid.  Then he went to work for a lobbying firm.  You know, those “special interest” groups that are supposedly destroying America.  So what does Obama do?  Gives him a nice cushy Cabinet post.  But not just any Cabinet post.  Secretary of Health and Human Services.  After working for a lobbying group that represented pharmaceutical and insurance companies.  Yeah, no chance of a conflict of interest there.  And Tom Daschle and Ted Kennedy deciding health care policy is the stuff of my nightmares.

So it seems the “change” is that we can expect more of the same Washington antics we’re so sick of.  Maybe Obama didn’t mean he was going to change things in Washington, but the definition of the word change.  You know, like when “bad” meant “good”.  Maybe “change” will now mean “more of the same old crap than you can shovel”.
