Oh No! Obamas Change is Reliving the Clintons 90s

Do you want to catch a glimpse of an Obama Administration and see what the future hold? You don't need to look far and check out Obama choices and those considered to be part of his administration. I can confidently say that the bulk of Obama's cabinet will be old-time Clinton cronies and recycled Washington insiders, who are currently running the transition team to his new style politics of change?

Can't the anti-Washington-insiders and the president-elect find anyone who isn't a Beltway losers? There are far better individuals with experience who are well apt to fulfill those positions. But judging by the appointments to his transition committee and leaks about possible Cabinet choices, Obama appears to be practicing the politics of status quo, not the politics of change.

What happened to the messiah's message of innovation and emphatic commitment to change the culture of Washington and bring in new people, new ideas, and new ways of doing business. To the people who vote for Obama, don't you feel stupid and duped. Idiots!

Well, it seems your messiah has decided to bring back the old Washington hacks, party regulars, and Clinton cronies that Obama once had frequently criticized. As a soon to be president-puppet elect, Obama has reached out to the same old folks who dominate the Democratic Party and represent the status quo for decades.

His transition committee consist of chairman, John Podesta, a former Clinton's chief of staff who presided over outrageous last-minute Clinton pardons, and Carol Browner, who was Clinton's former EPA administrator and whose husband was part of the Fannie Mae mess.

Also on the transition team, we have Bill Daley, Clinton's former secretary of commerce and the brother of the mayor of Chicago, is the epitome of the old Democratic establishment. Clinton appointed him to the Fannie Mae board and his son worked as a lobbyist for the agency. Aren't these the kind of folks that Obama ran against?

The first Cabinet appointment is a brash speaking, Rahm Emanuel, the new White House chief of staff. Rahm is also a former Clinton White House staffer, who is blatant and obnoxious. He spent his White House years leaking to The Washington Post whenever he didn't like what the president was doing. Even Bill Clinton stopped trusting him. So any rumors within the Obama presidency in the next four years can be trace to the chief of staff. Besides, Rahm's is known for his strident demeanor laced with the 'F' word in every sentence and that will match well with Bidens gaffe and stupidity. The smartest move is trying to appoint Hillary Clinton to the Secretary of State. That would keep her away from any aspirations for the presidency 2012. Yeah, it seems Obama is forming his Cabinet just fine.

If anything that history had taught us, an Obama Administration mimicking the Clinton Administration will be a disaster. While Obama's eloquence will carry him so far, he will raise taxes like Clinton and allow our national security to weaken. Remember, under Clinton, we had at least 5 attacks by terrorist. So, if Obama is trying to relive the 1990's all over again, I hope the messiah really have something up his sleeve because it's going to get ugly.
