Can we really say of Barack Obama, “Don’t believe the hype,”? 

He hasn’t had much of an opportunity to make a America better or worse as the new POTUS elect.

For salt, what does Obama really have to pick from but the incumbent residuals whose performance has been a little better than complete garbage during the last eight years? Dignified public servants? How about corporate patsys : spineless, irresponsible, shortsighted, lazy cretins with a bloated sense of both entitlement and import to the people they have failed to serve but whose paychecks they cash anyway. They are the reason I don’t want Obama’s job.  

It’s a sitcom; what Dilbert would look like if he had both money and power. 

So I defer to someone very responsible -Dennis Loo, World Can’t Wait herald and author of Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush & Cheney.  Who can we trust except those who have absolutely NO TOLERANCE WHATSOEVER for civil liberties backslides?  There are those who have developed an acutely sensitive attennae to America’s political performers – such as Dennis Loo.

Author Dennis Loo, Ph.D. is a Professor of Sociology at Cal Poly Pomona. He graduated with honors from Harvard in Government and received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Santa Cruz in Sociology. He has been a journalist, including as a Photo Editor at the Harvard Crimson and an Associate Editor at the Hawaii Observer. His research and writings revolve mostly around polling and public policymaking, with an emphasis on the roles of media, public officials and social movements.
Professor Loo cuts Obama & cabinet potentates NO SLACK in this report on Obama.

“Civil liberties –

He supports the war on drugs.

He supports the crack-cocaine sentence disparity.

He supports Real ID.

He supports the PATRIOT Act.

He supports the death penalty.

He opposes lowering the drinking age to 18.

He supported amnesty for telecoms engaged in illegal spying on Americans.”

Granted… what I fear the most is what is actually happening now that the election is over. DHS is staffing up and spending our tax dollars like crazy without relative checks and balances.   Is Obama going to stand up to the spoiled and irrelevant military class docking their bids on American soil?  Or is he just going to get paid, shut up and “do his job” like the last guy?
