A Recap Of The First Few Weeks

I wanted to take a second to recap just what the Obama administration has done during the first few weeks in office. This is, of course, beyond the Porkulus Bill that was passed Friday.

  • His first call to any head of state as president was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory. 
  • His first one-on-one interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television. 
  • He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted. 
  • He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed. 
  • He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and 9/11.  (of course, charges can always be pressed again, though it would be within civilian courts, more than likely.)
  • He  signed an order to release $20.3 million to help migrate thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to and live in the US at American taxpayer expense.  (‘cuz we are friendly like that, and are worried about our Arab brethren who are being persecuted by the evil Israel.)

Not that I am worried, of course. It is, after all, just Obama trying to get settled in and working to get the world to ‘approve’ of us again…

Big Joe On The Move

I have to say, I am not sure about Joe the Plumber, but I don’t fault the guy from taking every advantage of the opportunities given him. He was a bit hard on the McCain campaign, speaking out about how he thought that it was badly run, etc, though he hasn’t offered anything better (that I know).

Be that as it may, had I been in his shoes I would be doing the same thing- sinking my teeth in and milking it for all I was worth.

Our intrepid campaign hero is now on the trail of the piss-poor media in Israel and Palestine. Read about his adventures here or watch them on Pajamas TV.
